    This hotel is a not in the centre if Lourdes. Although there is an hourly bus sevice to and from the centre, (only 100 metres from the hotel)this doesn't run after 7pm. Taxis after 7pm were costing 15 euro.

    The room was spacious and included lots of antique artefacts. The building although old had plenty of character and was probably at one time, an old farmhouse. Breakfast included lots of different meats and cheeses, together with bread,fruit and yogurts.

    It would be nice to see some update in the house interiors.

    The room is so big and the bed was 2x single with good mattresses, which is great for us as we are used to sleep on the emperor size bed. Breakfast has good selection and served with quality table set.

    Bernard the owner greeted us with warmth and hospitality of a by gone era. He was a wonderful host. We loved it so much we stayed an extra night. The facility had updated bathrooms, the best high pressure water in the shower, a sitting chair and table in the bathroom, an adjoining sitting room, antiques and WiFi worked! Our room had a view of the Pyrenees, and we were awaken in the morning by the sound of birds chirping. Bernard recommended two local restaurants as being good and reasonably priced. Turns out he was right and they were both Michelin rated, reasonable and delicious. We thought Bernard would be the best person to train the top notch aspiring properties such as Relais Chateau or ABBA he was that good. We will return.

    We enjoyed the quaint ambience of the house with antique furniture and large bedrooms, communal areas with views over the snow capped mountains. Very French, host was very attentive and helpful. Breakfast was excellent not only in choice available but quantity. Our host sent us off with a goodie bag of coissants. Location was excellent only being ten minuites from the centre and easy to find.

    Grand manor house-style hotel

    • Stayed 1 night

    Although the hotel has a restaurant, it was only available for breakfast and not for dinner as we had hoped. Whilst the hotel is very grand and clean, it nonetheless has a sense of 'faded glory'.

    Lovely hillside location in terraced grounds, huge old manor house with very grand rooms and high ceilings. Our bedroom was very large with two large windows and shutters, overlooking the grounds. The bath/shower/washbasin were on a slightly raised 'stage' in the corner of the room with movable blinds if you required privacy, whilst the toilet was in a separate small room (with carpeted walls !) within the bedroom. The breakfast was very good, the owner even gave us a doggy bag to take away the croissants and rolls that we couldn't finish !

    The shower arrangement (hand held nozzle) could be modernized to make it more user friendly.

    We were a little uncertain about the property when we drove in. From outside looked like it needed some TLC. Inside we were greeted by a pleasant colourful host who showed us several rooms. Rooms were all large with sitting areas and great views. The extensive range of antiques, high ceilings and extremely old building offered a sense of old world charm. A little bit quirky but in a positive way. Breakfast was very generous, well presented and more than we could eat. Certainly different but we would definately come here again.

    No bad experience really. There seem to be only bathtubs without shower curtain, so taking a shower was a bit challenging. The driveway to the chateau was a little narrow and we only realised later than out rental car got scratches from bushes and plants along the way. Just drive slowly when entering from the main road.

    Fantastic location, just a short drive to Lourdes, with a nice garden and great views of the Pyrenees. Beautifully appointed and very spacious rooms, a bit old-fashioned for some maybe, but we loved it. The dining/breakfast room takes you back in time. Breakfast was superb. The owner is friendly and charming. I wished we could have stayed a few days more.
