    A great location
    • Leisure trip
    • Family with young children
    • Junior Suite with Mountain View
    • Stayed 2 nights

    Our family room looked like out of 80-ies. Definitely not worth the money. When I got to my car after 10pm, it was spooky - the lobby dark, no light, nobody at the reception. I got locked out as the reception forgot to tell me the code to re-enter the hotel. The door bell was of no help, as nobody came (the building was just dark).. Luckily, my wife woke up to come to rescue. Back in my room, I got at 11pm a sms with the code. A bad joke.

    A great location

    too basic for us, more like an old fashioned motel than a hotel but price was high. It needs remodeling in the bedrooms, bathrooms and hallways.

    Perfect location and views. Staff beyond reproach at front desk, extremely gracious and helpful. Linen was clean and crisp. Recommended Les Cascades restaurant, excellent and friendly.

    The owner, Lydia, was wonderfully helpful. The hotel has stunning views. A friend and I stayed for a trail race and vowed to return. Plus, the coffee is excellent.

    No dinner. Smelly towels and lift. Breakfast very expensive for what was on offer. Breakfast coffee was dreadful - so weak! Cold rooms.

    The View and the peace. Lydia, the manageress. The beds. The Pain aux Raisin.

    I wish there were more electrical receptacles for charging phones, camera batteries and other devices.

    Most convenient to desirable Pyrenees hiking trails. The view of natural wonders is by far the best experienced anywhere in my 45 years if travels.

    This was a special treat for my wife. At this price I expected a functioning restaurant and a swimming pool. Neither was on offer (breakfast only at a stiff price) which I found was poor value for money

    The view is magnificent

    Everything was Poor and I was overcharged for breakfast

    The price on the site said breakfast wasn't included and it wasn't so had to pay 30 Euro extra for a poor breakfast. The room is small and old bathroom and toilet, no coffee or tea in the room . Dissapointing

    Spectacular view makes up for need for updating
    • Leisure trip
    • Family with young children
    • 2 rooms
    • Stayed 2 nights

    The property is in desperate need of updating. Halls are dark (you have to find a button to push in the dark, to light them) Towels are stale and unmatched in bathroom, no fan, old tub, sink, etc... 70's decor... old burbur carpet in elevator and halls, furniture old and tired. Breakfast was mediocre- bakery goods were sub-par- especially for the 15 euro price. They could use a worker to man the breakfast bar instead of the owner who was also trying to man the front desk...

    View of Cirque de Gavarnie from our window was JAW-DROPPINGLY Beautiful. The history of the beautiful castle-like hotel was very cool. The hotel owners have lovely horses and offer rides, which was a lot of fun and they take them across the property which is fun to watch, especially with that backdrop. You can walk to the waterfall- a great and challenging hike- then have lunch at the cafe at the top. It was awesome!!

    Empty hotel. Welcomed by a relative of the manager- who was away- who was sweet and did her best (alone) to staff the hotel for us. Room ok for walkers but no more than that. Very very expensive indeed for a frankly weird experience
