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.

Packing filled the evening and then the movie 'Ghost Writer' on TV. We drive up to the Dordogne district ...
... and then watched Donald Trump confound his critics by being comfortable and agile in the Republican hopefuls debate. His most telling point was that he takes no money from private or business interests and can claim no indebtedness. I would still be appalled if he were ...
... 50 litres of water. We will only stay the one night. But it gave us the opportunity to go to the 'Donjon des Aigles' - the dungeon of Eagles. Wonderful specimens of owls, raptors and some delightful parrots. A wonderful display, with the sky full of mixed birds at the same time. And it went on for an hour. A great experience. And the views from the top of the ruined castle were stunning.
It's a pretty place but ...
