TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Du Dauphine Lourdes
A small hotel with fairly basic services but highly recommended. The hotel is clean and the owners make you feel welcome the moment you step in the door. Nothing is too much trouble for. We spent 3 nights here and would not hesitate to go back. It is also about half way between the train station and the grotto - very convenient. No restaurant here but the buffet breakfast is well worth it.

Breakfast at the hotel this morning. Was able to order some scrambled eggs - I'm positive they cooked them in cream. They also serve cheesecake for breakfast as part of the buffet!! I can't believe how cold it is - it's about 8deg at the moment and raining. I have all my winter woollies on including thermals, gloves, beanie, neck warmer, scarf and stockings under my jeans - it's ridiculous. The locals tell me it was up to ...
Today we had a city tour of Bordeaux which was quite a surprise to us. In the18th century after the fire of London The king decided all the timber buildings be replaced with sandstone which has to be seen to believe.

After lunch we travelled to Lourdes to the Hotel Grotte for the night. ...

So many apartments on the road in. Can't imagine living with a family ...
... hotel. Amazing. Took a photo of the menu. The cheapest entree is €59 if I remember correctly. Double that for $$. Had a paddle in the Atlantic which was nice, sand gravelly and sink a long way down. Water bit cold. There were people surfing and some attempting to swim. Spent a memorable hour or so before back on the bus and off to Lourdes. The day is warm but a bit hazy and so we didn't see the Pyrenees until almost at Lourdes. Our hotel is ...
We are in May already and Spring has been slow to arrive in the mountains this year. The leaves are only just coming out and I still have some bulbs to flower, which is late even for here. There continues to be snowfall about 2,500m and other parts of Europe, in spite of the end of the ski season, have had similar weather. Although it has been cold in general, when the sun does shine it is very warm, but when one day it is 28 degrees and the next only 5, it ...
