We came back from Spain going to the south of France. We decided to have a stop-over in Pau and accidentially found The Bristol. To make a long storiy short: it was a perfect and charming experience. Nice rooms, nice owners, in the center, good (perfect) suggestions where to have dinner... I can recommend the hotel

Wonderful hotel. The owners really looked after us. Great place, great location. Very clean and the parking was a real plus. Thankyou. The town centre was minutes away, good selection of restaurants and loved the old town area.

The Hotel Bristol in Pau is in an excellent central location with its own private (and free!) car park. The hosts are charming, friendly and helpful - nothing is too much trouble - and the rooms comfortable and quiet. Decorated in a classical Deco style this hotel is perfect for a stay in Pau.

Charming and helpful host and hostess presiding over a fin de siècle property in the best spot in Pau and a mine of information about what to do and see; with the bonus of parking right outside and for free!

With only four floors and just 22 rooms Hotel Bristol has the feel of home to it. Location is a big asset as there is easy access to the main attractions and restaurants. In addition, the bus which provides an easy connection to both the airport and the train station can be boarded just a few yards from the hotel... More

On a flying visit to Pau, you want to be central. This hotel is absolutely that. With probably less than 20 bedrooms it is not massive but that is not an issue.
