Ranked #8 of 185 Hotels in Lourdes
Reviewed 25 July 2011

I spent two nights with my family in Lourdes this past July 2011. I would recommend this hotel. It was clean & a good location, just a 5 minute walk to all the major sites. The staff were very friendly & right away set us up with a map of the area & all the information we needed.

Just be aware that the rooms are sparse. The main common areas are lovely but the actual rooms are more like a dormatory with the hard beds & pillow roll included (which was surprisingly comfy). Also if you need anything like ice or the air conditioning activated you do have to phone the front desk. They are wonderfully accomodating.

The bathroom was very clean & the shower was great!

Breakfast was a disappointment & I would recommend skipping it & grabbing a croisant on the way to the grotto instead (we did the second day).

I also experienced the noisiness that the last reviewer mentioned but not from the buses. At night the bars on the street were filled with people singing loudly & shouting until around 1 am. If I were higher up it might have been better.

Overall, it is one of the best looking places to stay in Lourdes & the staff are so welcoming & helpful that it was a great experience.

The staff at this hotel were very helpful at all times. The room was large with three beds and the bathroom, though a bit on the small side, was adequate. The shower was excellent. We were full board and found the food very tasty with good variety. The restaurant staff were superb. The only downside was the noise from outside from buses dropping off or collecting guests all through the night. The bin collection was early in the mornng and was also noisy. We had to shut the window which made the room very hot. The room service was excellent, everything was always very clean.

Room Tip: avoid rooms which overlook bus drop off area.

We stayed at this hotel for two nights in May. When we checked in, the woman at the front desk was extremely friendly and helpful. She showed us to our room, made our dinner reservation and then when we came down to dinner, led us into the dining room and got us seated at our table.

It is a short (5 – 10 minute) walk to the Grotto/Shrine area from the hotel. The public areas of the hotel are very, very nice. The rooms themselves are comparable to a well maintained Holiday Inn room – clean and well equipped, but not fancy.

We were getting totally confused by the vast amount of hotels available for visitors to Lourdes, but relying on Trip Advisor paid off as our stay at Hotel Paradis was fantastic. From the moment we arrived, we felt welcomed and relaxed, with nothing being too much trouble for the attentive and kind staff of the hotel. Both ladies on reception and Jean-Luc are to be congratulated for their professionalism and generosity, helping to make our trip to Lourdes unforgettable. We will definitely be back!

My parish stayed here with Leisure Time Travel in July and we had a fantastic time.
The reception we recieved in the hotel was fantastic which allowed us a true pilgrimage with plenty of time for prayer and a lot of time for enjoyment in the hotel. Food was delightful! Definitely recommend.

Room Tip: Book early

Just spent a weekend with my father in Hotel Paradis and would highly recommend it for any traveller contemplating a trip to Lourdes. Location for us was ideal- only 7 mins walk to Grotto and pleasurably distanced from the madding crowds. Ambiance in hotel is luxurious and elegant. Beautiful surroundings- lots of beautiful salons to relax and unwind in.Madame Cassin , the owner, has immaculate taste and it shows in the environs of her establishment. Staff are amazing...Jean-Luc in reception is incredibly professional and nothing is too much trouble. Kathy, who works all over the hotel,is an exceptional staff member. She is so kind and welcoming- any queries were aways dealt with a smile and she came to wave us off at the end of our trip. Jean Michel in the dining area delivers excellent service and ensures all are enjoying their dining experience. I had heard horror stories re: Lourdes hotel food- but the Paradis standard is very good. There is no choice on the menu, but we found the cuisine excellent. (I did hear others requesting eg coeliac meals and this was no problem with staff ).There is also a rooftop terrace, which we availed of on a sunny day...All in all - would definitely recommend the Paradis Hotel- in all respects it delivers, and staff are amazing.

Mum and I stayed in the Paradis from 3rd - 7th May 2010. The hotel staff, especially Cathy where so helpful. The food was out of this world three courses for lunch and dinner I've put on about half a stone. The meals were very varied and catered for all tastes. Mum and I stayed here 12 years ago and as far as we can see nothing has changed, and no standards have slipped. The rooms were so clean and the towels were changed daily and beds made every morning. The cleaning ladies were also very polite and helpful. We had a room facing the mountains and even though the weather was bad for most of our week it was beautiful to look at the snow covered mountains. We had a problem with the tv aerial and it was sorted within 24 hours with apologies. I can find no fault with this hotel, mum and I had a fabulous pilgrimage and are now both on diets. I would recommend this hotel to anybody. We flew BMI baby with Mancunia and we would also recommend them very highly for their organised and efficient way of working. Michael was our rep and he was extremely helpful and efficient.
