“Great place for a great price!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

A great family-run hotel! Very nice owners and a big friendly dog too! The gentleman who owns/runs it can speak a little English and is very helpful. The hotel is quaint, clean and quiet. It is a great value for the money. Breakfast is optional, costs about 8 Euros extra, and well worth it. The hotel is about 20 minutes walk from the beautiful Chateau de Pau and there are many restaurants around that area. If you are arriving to Pau by train, you can hire a taxi to take you to the hotel for about 10 Euros, or you can take the p5 or t3 bus for 1 Euro, the bus stop is across the street from the train station and stops almost right in front of the hotel. You could walk to he hotel, but it's all uphill.

The location is best for those with their own transport or for those who are comfortable walking or taking the bus to/from restaurants and the train station.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

We had a very pleasant one night stop at the Hotel Montilleul which is about 15 minute walk from the town centre. There is free parking on the hotel property. The room we had was a good size - they obviously vary as one would expect in an old building - with a large bathroom. It was comfortable and the free internet access was excellent.

The hotel is run by a very friendly couple who speak English well and were very understanding of our attempts to use the little French we have. Breakfast was good with the usual range of pastries, bread, cheese and jams.

We were given helpful instructions on how to find the town and where we might find nice restaurants. As a result we found a very pleasant restaurant in the commercial centre.

This was our 3rd stay in Pau on our drive down to Spain. The hotel is easy to find, has free car parking and the husband and wife team that run it are very helpful.
Breakfast is excellent, choice of bread, cheeses, youghurts, fruit etc. Coffee espeically good.
You need to check in by 10pm at night as main door is locked so be aware of this.
The centre of Pau is a 20 minute walk away.

We stayed for one night passing through to Spain. The rooms were on the small side, but we really only slept there so this wasn't a problem. If you had some large luggage it could be. The owner was friendly and readily gave directions to a local music festival that was on that night. The location was good and access to the city centre was either a 20 min walk or bus to the road alongside the hotel. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. Would use again for the night but perhaps not for an extended stay.

I stayed here April 2012 with my son in room 16. The room was clean with new tile and fixtures in the bathroom. The carpet looked new and the beds were comfortable. There is free parking and breakfast is 7.50 euro. The owners were delightful even though they spoke very little English. I would stay here again without any reservations. The price is extremely reasonable and the neighborhood was safe and walkable. You keep your room key because they frequently lock the hotel. It is locked in the morning while they clean the rooms and it is locked up tight at 10:00pm. Your room key opens the front door as well as your room.

Small hotel with friendly owners, rooms are basic but clean, excellent breakfast well worth paying the extra for this, complimentary car parking which is a bonus as parking in the city is at a premium. No bar in the hotel and door gets locked at 10pm at night but providing you have checked in by then you get a key to access at any time you like.
5 minute drive from centre of Pau or a good 20 minute walk.
Excellent service, we always stay here when travelling down to Spain

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the front of the hotel as these have doors that open overlooking main street
