We stopped for two nights on our way back to UK. Good location, great room and friendly and professional staff. The complimentary coffee and cakes in the lobby worth a visit, but only once a day! Hotel in great spot to explore Pau and close to bars, restaurants and shops. Hotel car park as reported on other reviews is challenging...

I was a little sceptical before arriving due to the age of the hotel. All until I opened the door to my room with the heavy old fashion heavy key. But my room, 479, was big, renovated, and had everything I needed. Good bathroom, strong wifi signal, dark and quiet when I wanted to sleep,a mini bar, coffee machin etc......

We stayed for one night in this grand old hotel whilst on a touring holiday of the Pyrenees. Our room was in the tower part of the building and was roughly circular - we loved it. The bathroom was extremely luxurious and very `French' in design. There were lots of antique pieces of French furniture throughout the hotel - gave...

We loved our stay in this beautiful and historic hotel. The one way system around Pau needs a little negotiating but if you park in a public car park and ask for directions then the staff are so happy to help. The hotel parking is great but be prepared to drive very cautiously to get inside. The hotel lobby is...

Yes, it is a funny old slightly ramshackle hotel which could be magnificent but isn't. Best Western would have to spend a fortune to bring it properly up to date and I doubt they'd get a return on it for centuries! However, after being in a mousehole in Biarritz for 3 days, we loved it. Huge room, sofa, chairs at...

If you like your hotels in the style of pre-first world war Grands, Spendides and Continentals - and if you don't Pau may not be your sort of town - I would recommend the Continental. Service of a by-gone age is provided in a beautiful building on a good central location for shops, restaurants etc. Secure parking is a great...

Difficult to get to by car, we were then told that all parking spaces were taken, having been pre-booked. The receptionist then couldn't advise us where to leave our car overnight, as if this had never arisen before! Our room was dated in the extreme, the carpet was dirty and there was a terrible smell, although the bathroom was very...

For the stuff that actually matters; super-comfortable bed, secure parking, location, cost, etc. the Continental takes some beating. Recommended for travellers like us just passing through or anyone looking to explore the area for a couple of days and although not "luxury" as such, and with a certain faded charm, this Hotel is terrific. Didn't have breakfast but loads of...

This hotel is ideally situated in the centre of a beautiful city. There are plenty of brasseries within walking distance and plentiful shopping. Our room was extremely spacious as was the en suite bathroom and very well appointed. It was high ceiling end and light and airy. A lovely stay and I would highly recommend it.

Old hotel but good location. Friendly and helpful staff. Room quite big and bathrum with shower good. Near to cafe and restaurants. Lunch in hotel restaurant OK. Breakfast maybe not as what I am used to but enough.
