    The hotel itself is very convenient to local shops, train station and just few minutes walk to the Santuary ie Grotto, Basilica, etc.My wife and I would therefore will stay in the Excelsior hotel in the very near future.The hotel lounge/reception is very impressive indeed. Well Done Excelsior, highly recommended to those visiting Lourdes, France.Ideal also to family as a whole.Buffet breakfast excellent, varieties of fruits available.

    Location to the groto

    It is not value for money. Rundown and very basic room. No safe in room. It is about 20 sq ft., Old 12 inch tv, door lock that is primitive, And check in is slow.

  • Couple

    The Staff at the hotel were extremely polite and helpful and allowed us to check in at 9.30am and gave us a room that directly overlooked the Sanctuary, a wonderful view!!

    Coffee at breakfast was awful and although the room had an excellent view it was decoratively tired but these two minor points in no way detracted from the stay.

  • Family with children

    Very Old. Carpet, Bed sheets, terrible view to an abondoned building. Norrow hallways and mini elevator. Wifi is only available in the lobby. Pictures on line are not the accuarate representation of the facility. I was fooled!

  • Older travelers

    The Hotel is in a very excellent position. We appreciate the help and attention they gave us.

  • Group of friends
    10.0

    Beautiful, elegant building with breathtaking views! The friendliest and most helpful staff of all the hotels we stayed in! Will come back again and again!

    Only that there were no air conditioned rooms and we happened to be there during the warmest season. But fans were available and worked out very well in the cooler evenings.

  • Group of friends

    very close to sanctuary

    uncomfortable bathroom, and I booked one double bed, they gave me two singles.

    Proximity with the shrine of Our Lady of Lourdes (2 minutes walk).

  • Couple
    5.0

    Close to the Church. receptionist very helpful

    Attitude of Staff during the breakfast buffet - Did not allow us to choose a table in a completely empty breakfast hall and then terrorized us for 30 min by making maximum noise clearning tables next to us - Outrageuos, unfriendly and completley unprofessional attitude!!! Also, Rooms very noisy at night since walls are very thin!

  • Couple

    Hotel is within walking distance to Sanctuaries. Our room is facing the castle of Lourdes. Hotel staff were very helpful.

    Map shown on Booked.net does not sync. with the actual location. Have to walk about 15 mins to the train station. Its rated 3 stars but no basic toiletries - soap, shampoo, hand towel or drinking water were provided. The check out is only available from 7.30am onwards, if travellers who plan to catch a train out of Lourdes anytime before 7.30am, will have problem checking out. We were caught in this situation, the night shift receptionist said he does not know how to arrange for check out. In the end we had to pay cash and left without getting a receipt but we had him signed a handwritten paper.

    This is my 5th stay at this Hotel,the Owner and staff are great Peoples. The location for this hotel and place is great.

  • Family with children
    9.6

    My family arrived first hour in the morning from Paris and the kind-hearted staff accomodated us to check-in hours judging from the situation that we were in - tired and lacking of sleep. I think that this exemplifies the Chirstian dimention of the staff of this hotel. All the staff on fact were very gracious and accomodating and were always ready to help us. A big plus is that all reception staff speak good English. Thanks Hotel Excelsior for making our stay a memorable one. We will definitely go back to this place when we have another chance of visitnge Lourdes.

    If air conditioner may be made available during warm days, it would really be awesome as the nights were muggy. Anyways, there was an electric fan that was a good alternative.

  • Older travelers

    It was close to the Grotto

    When we went to leave very early (5:00 am), the night person was no where to be found and the doors to the hotel were locked from the inside. Surely a fire hazard by my standards, but it was in Europe, so they may have different regulations. The fellow did appear after about 5-10 minutes and let us out,

  • Older travelers
    6.6

    The staff were excellent. Very friendly and extremely helpful.

    The fabric is very dated and in need of re-decoration.The lift struggled to carry 6 people and the stairways were very narrow however we were only there one night and the location was perfect for us. Although the food was of good quality it was rushed to be served to clear the dining room quickly and the breakfast was minimal

  • Family with children

    Very close to the grotto

    The whole hotel is very worn and tired reception, hallways, lift bedrooms more importantly it is dirty , walls, carpets, woodwork, bathroom fittings. This hotel should never be a 3 star
