Located in the heart of town, overlooking the river. Quiet and wonderfully appointed for the price. Although it didn't have any negative effect on me, the hotel attracts groups and the restaurant was quite full at meal times. However, there is a restaurant next door which gives very good service and the food was wonderful and the prices very fair. Most people stop at Lourdes for a spiritual retreat, but it is also a thriving town at the foot of the very scenic Pyranees Mountains between France and Spain. It is on the path from Bordeaux to the Mediterranean and therefore not unreasonable to visit the site of a beautiful cathedral, take in the holy waters and participate in a candlelight procession of faith.
