Grand Hotel Moderne
Ranked #1 of 185 Hotels in Lourdes
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 May 2014 via mobile

We have just returned from a weeks stay in this beautiful hotel. We had a beautiful family room, with 2 interconnecting rooms, for myself, my husband and 2 children. My parents stayed in a disabled room, with 2 balconies, which met their needs very well. The hotel was beautiful and the staff were polite and courteous. My children both have food allergies, and their dietary requirements were met very well indeed. In fact one day the head waiter ran over to the supermarket and bought them special milk shakes as a treat. The food on the whole was very good, with entry of variety. I will definitely stay in this hotel next year, and highly recommend it.

We only had 24 hours in Lourdes and wanted to make the best of it... The Hotel Moderne certainly helped us do that. It is located just outside of the shrine and is only a 5 minute walk from the grotto. The room was great and very comfortable. We paid a little extra and had a balcony that looked out toward the shrine. The staff was exceptionally helpful and even kept our luggage secure for several hours after checkout until we left to catch our train. I had read some reviews that mentioned problems getting a wifi connection for internet but I had no problem at all getting a connection for my iPad or android phone. When we go back to Lourdes, we will definitely stay at Hotel Moderne.

Wonderful, always-on, always-alert, always-responsive staff in this beautiful hotel with the best dining (food, atmosphere, service) in Lourdes. Rooms are beautifully, even richly, decorated, comfortable, well lit, balconied; and bathrooms (including tub/shower) are enormous, beautiful, and immaculate. Closets more than adequate. Minifridge. Wifi-access, TV. Gift shop (souvenirs, religious goods, mainly) rivals any in the area.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the domain (grotto area) may suffer more outside noise.

From inquiries to booking on their website, it was a breeze with Grand Hotel Moderne. They were very responsive to my questions and they even offered a pick-up service from Tarbes airport. When we arrived, our driver was waiting for us. It was easy. I did not see any taxi so the service was indeed helpful.

When we arrived at the hotel, i presented my voucher and we were given our keys. We were also given a map and a list of schedule of activities at the Sanctuary of Lourdes.

I was so happy that i chose this hotel. I love the architecture and its interiors. We felt like we're in a castle.

Our room was nice with two double beds and a balcony.

The toilet is separated from the bathtub area. My only concern was that they don't have a bidet inside the toilet so after taking nature's call, i have to transfer to the shower area to clean up. I hope they can add a bidet on their toilet.


The location was perfect! It was just 3 minutes walk to St. Joseph's gate. There are a lot of shops around for souvenirs.

The ambiance for the breakfast was fantastic! There's a basket of fruits on the table and a buffet choice of breads, jam, cheese and yogurt. The croissants were delicious!

Overall, we love our stay at Grand Hotel moderne. We only stayed 1 night due to our tight schedule. Wish we could have stayed longer. Recommended stay in Lourdes is at least 2 nights. We will definitely return!

The Grand Hotel Moderne is a little bit of an Order of Malta (Federal) Dallas Chapter secret.
While Lourdes has more hotels in France with the exception of Paris,The Grand Hotel Moderne
has the best proximity to the Domaine of a 4 star.
The amenities are exemplary the restaurant,bar,and waitstaff beyond helpful.
For France,this hotel has great value.
A suite is the same price as a 3 star in Paris.
Side trips to Biarritz,San Sebastian,Loyola, Madiran etc were arranged by the hotel-effected by driver David (Gem)
Lourdes has been called a "Catholic Disneyland" and this hotel is about as good as it gets.

This is the most wonderful place to stay in Lourdes without hesitation. From the moment we entered the hotel the front desk staff was warm and welcoming and immediately offered to show me our room. They offered us a beautiful room with a view of the procession out of the balcony. The bathroom and room itself were immaculate. The beds were very comfortable and exceeded my expectations.

The wait staff in the restaurant were fantastic as well. So kind, polite and without fail accommodated our later arrival to breakfast each morning with the offer to bring us out eggs and bacon. Truly could not have asked for a more enjoyable stay on any level.

The staff knew us by name and room number immediately. They anticipated our needs and addressed them often before we even asked.

The hotel lends itself to both privacy as well as provides opportunities to meet other guests in its bar and dining room. The hotel lobby is a place to meet visitors who travel from far away to come to this special place. We met and joined in with a lovely group on an annual pilgrimage which was an unexpected blessing during our visit.

The location to the grotto is only steps away. The staff offered us an umbrella when it rained as well as complimentary candles for the nightly procession.

The owners have done a marvelous job renovating this hotel and hiring incredible staff.
Absolutely one of the most lovely hotels and best service we have ever experienced. This made a very special trip with my daughter who has been ill a blessing and gift beyond what I had hoped for during our stay.

Thank you Grand Hotel Moderne for living up to your name in every way possible!
