Hotel La Solitude4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Well placed and very popular with pilgrims. Easily accessible and within a reasonable walking distance from the sanctuaries. The foyer is spacious, the rooms are well appointed and the food is of a good standard with occasional buffer.
Stayed at the Hotel La Solitude with a tour group for the second time. Location is central, near the Grotto of Lourdes and the numerous shops selling religious articles. It has a restaurant with very good food especially their paella. A souvenir/gift shop on site. Rooms may be smallish but enough for 2 people with luggage. Clean, with coffee/ tea, toiletries. Bathroom is much better as compared to previous stay. Buffet breakfast choices maybe limited but adequate and the dining area can be crowded because of the tour groups. Service staff members are helpful and friendly.
This hotel has the best location, just a 2-3 minute walk to the Lourdes Grotto. Because it is very walking distance, you can go early and be the first one to line up in the baths and stay late for the candle procession. The hotel is very old but the rooms are clean but very small. The food in the restaurants are good. At night, around 10 there is a lot of entertainment in the lobby. There is a bar where people are singing and drinking and just having fun. Very lively, fun crowd.
We had a room with a view over the Gave towards the castle - lovely! Staff all very pleasant and many have a basic knowledge of English - some have an excellent standard. Our rooms and the public parts of the hotel were very clean. Food was tasty. Suggestions: food portions for main course of dinner were quite adequate but we would have welcomed a little more. When our son asked for more, he was given more immediately but perhaps it would be better if more were offered. There was not always the same selection for those who came a little later for breakfast, especially if a large group had had an early breakfast. We are happy to recommend this hotel.
My wife and I came with a pilgrimage tour group and has no choice but take this hotel from the get go. The staff greeted us and find them courteous, friendly and helpful. The bell boys even managed to take our heavy luggages to our room. The hotel was only a quarter mile from the St Joseph entrance of the Shrine and very conveniently located. Breakfast and dinner are complimentary but the food is generally simple and ordinary. If your group happened to seat at the same time with another large group the dining area becomes chaotic and confusing. We had room 334 facing a parking lot with some few trees. The carpet is dark red and the two twin bed covers are dark brown. The color of the sofa cover is brown as well as the cabinet/drawers. The ambience is cheap and devoid of warm and coziness. Luckily we are at the shrine most of the time. Fortunately the bathroom fixtures are updated and clean. The cabinet/drawer includes a small fridge inside and a flat TV fixed beside. On the bright side, the location is ideal for those who stays for a few days to experience the solemnity of the Shrine of Our Lady of Lourdes.
It is very close to the sanctuaries, shops, restaurants. I was given a room with a beautiful view of the river and bridge. The room is spacious and clean. Yes I was happy with the hotel overall. I would definitely come back.
My family and I, returned to this lovely Hotel in September 2017. When the reservation staff, saw us they were thrilled to greet us and a big welcome. Our friend the Director Mr.Francois Compagnet, was so happy to greet and hug us. This is our favourite Hotel in Lourdes. The rooms we got is our usual spacious, clean, tidy and great views of Lourdes, the Castle and the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Lourdes. The restaurant in the evening was so warm and welcoming and the senior lady, was so happy to see us. Her Name: Lilliyana, wasn't she glad to see us. The food was excellent as we dined every day, enjoying the delicious gourmet meals, the wines etc. We will be returning again the year 2018.I highly recommend this great and friendly Hotel, The La Solitude.Great for individuals, families, and not forgetting Groups.

Although we stayed in a suite, the sitting room was quite narrow, and the couch depth was so short it was like a church pew. Not a great value for the money. But, this is Lourdes, and given the nature of the town's crowding problems, it's probably not a bad deal. Very close to the key sites.
A **** hotel with ***** standards, During our visit to Lourdes, we stayed here and we were not disappointed. From the moment we entered the hotel, the staff went out of their way to help us. We stayed full board and the selection and the quality of the meals was excellent. This is a fantastic hotel with staff to match the quality and cater for the large groups staying there. I would highly recommend Hotel La Solitude as the hotel to stay when in Lourdes.
I was staying in this hotel 2 times. Loved staying in this hotel on both occasions. But I was not 100% happy with the food during my first stay. Just came back from there a few days ago and the food is improved to the highest level. So now I can recommend it to anyone.
