“Lourdes Pilgrim”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2012

The staff of the hotel was extremely helpful and arranged a taxi to collect us from Pau Airport. The location is great, the hotel full of old world charm.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the Grotto are able to see and hear the Candlelight Processions

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2012

Just returned from a 3 night stay at the Grand Hotel Moderne, you could not wish for a better location, right in the center of all the sights and attractions, rooms are all you would expect from a 4 star hotel, very clean and excellent bathroom facilites. The whole atmoshphere of the hotel was very good and the staff were only too willing to please.

Breakfast was also very good and the croissants were to die for. We only had one evening meal which was adequate. Price was fair for the type of establishment and the whole hotel reminded you of a bye gone era. We are recommended other family to stay there in May.

Room Tip: If you book direct with the hotel rather than a booking agency or travel agent there is a good chanc...

This is a beautiful hotel, an old but charming hotel, clean rooms and within walking distance to the grotto.
When you go to a place where people are there for their spiritual needs, you dont really look for "fit for a king" standard, just the essentials. This hotel really made the pilgrimage more comfortable. Staff is very helpful and friendly. And believe me, a short walking distance to the grotto, 3 minute tops. Restaurants and shops are all around the hotel.
Breakfast is adequate, as I said not the feast fit for a king. Dinner is a little special.

Lourdes is not a destination where you go for pleasure. Your trip there is due because your soul needs purification, so no way you look for enjoyments other than religious functions. But, at the end of a long day of concentration in a saint environment you need a break and the Moderne helps you to find a moment of relaxing from so many emotions.
Confortable rooms in an atmosphere "fin de siecle". The breakfast service is very spartan but for eating you have nice restaurant all around, the best is "Alexandra". The reception is very attentive and helpful and the position of the hotel is the nearest to the religious area.
The air of peace and devotion sweeps away any material connection and when you leaves Lourdes you feel content and you include also hotel Moderne in your contentment!

Absolutely fantastic stay. Booked into a single room which was very spacious with a double bed and lovely furnishings and fab modern bathroom. Hotel staff incredibly friendly, particularly on reception and in the bar. Location amazing, five minutes walk from the domain. I have stayed in several hotels in Lourdes, many claming to be four star but rarely earning two star in my book! This is the first one that meets all expectations and earns its star rating. Will definitely stay here again and couldn't recommend it enough.

Room Tip: Rooms 420 and 421 share a balcony so are great for two people travelling together but who like their...
