A load of character, right opposite the old church, central location. We used it as a base for cycling up Tourmalet etc. Nice to sit outside in the sun and have a local beer. I had a room at the front, noise was no problem at all. Plenty of breakfast.
Travelling in France last August with my teenage son, I wanted him to see more than the big cities. So we went south, to Luz Saint-Sauveur in the Pyrenees, and checked in to Hotel Les Templiers. It was just as I'd hoped, with our room at the front of the hotel and overlooking the centuries-old "Les Templars" church. We explored locally and into the mountains (walking one day, e-bike the next, venturing into the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Cirque de Gavarnie and up the Col des Tentes' 2200m, and on a quieter day wandering across the village to the thermal baths). The hotel is gorgeous, with real French character and friendly staff and management. We enjoyed a buffet breakfast each morning in the dining room, which set us up well for the day and proved to be a social occasion as well. We met various other travelers, all from other parts of Europe, happy to exchange greetings or news of experiences. Late afternoons we enjoyed afternoon teas outside, in front of the hotel or in the courtyard closer to the church. As well as a number of organic wines, the hotel offered a selection of delicious cakes and a local cheese platter. The hotel didn't offer dinner at the time, but had plenty of local recommendations that proved to be very good. It will be a while before I get back to that side of the world, so I'm glad to have such happy memories.
Was looking for a reasonably priced place to stay for a 2 day biking excursion in they Pyrenees. I found this hotel from a recommendation of the bike rental outfit. It was perfectly located in the heart of Luz St. Sauveur and provided everything I could ask for as a base camp. The room was cozy and the breakfast provided everything needed for a day on the bike. The hotel also provides a secure space for your bike which takes the worry out of storing over night. I would stay here again if in the area.
A lovely hotel in the old quarter of Luz. A really picturesque setting in a small square. We stayed in a room, number 1, at the front of building. While offering unparalleled views over the square, church (no hourly chimes) and mountains it might prove a little noisy for light sleepers during summer as the square is quite popular as a meeting point, resting place, somewhere to sit and have a drink (from the hotel bar) and also a weekly market. As a previous reviewer suggested it might be worthwhile booking direct with the hotel (English & French spoken) to have a room that suits your needs. Merely an observation and not a criticism.
We sort of stumbled across this because we were a non-French speaking family of four that was just desperately trying to find a little buffet breakfast for our finicky kids, and I googled and saw that the owners of the hotel spoke English.
Our first visit was fantastic: while the buffet wasn't really evident from glancing in the room, Sian and Laurent grabbed croissants for us, made us some killer coffee, and walked us through the buffet which included some awesome breads, fresh boiled eggs, cheeses, homemade yogurt, milk, etc.
They weren't at all put off by our American ways (timing of our meals, peanut butter on toast, etc), and, well, we were traveling with picky kids so it was so fantastic to have a place where the kids felt comfortable but the food was also stupendous and local.
And to top it all off, Sian and Laurent are super friendly, and supremely knowledgable about the area. She's from Australia but has lived there more than a decade; he's the town's mayor. Ultimately, we just made it a daily ritual during our stay in Luz to have breakfast there and fill up on both food and information on whatever our excursion was going to be for the day. Plus some great side stories about Tour de France, the politics of the town, etc.
We didn't actually stay at the hotel, so I can't comment on the accommodations. But the information and breakfast was outstanding.
One note: they were only open breakfast, then I think they did tea in the afternoon for their hotel guests or something. They aren't open for dinner. They used to have a cafe that they rented out, but this is was just breakfast now, and they had started it just recently.
