The hotel is in a great position for central Pau and a great location from which to explore the Pyrenees. Lots of restaurants and bars nearby. The hosts were great and very helpful. The room was large, clean and comfortable but could have benefited from tea and coffee making facilities although drinks were available on the terrace that fronts the... More

Historic building with modern comfort inside. Located in down town, walking distance for restaurants and Chateau de Pau. Parking with no cost. Air conditioning in rooms, free wi-fi, spacious rooms with modern bathrooms. The couple in charge of the hotel are very friendly with good suggestions for visiting and eating, they are great with kids. Nice regional breakfast.

The rooms are spacious and well appointed. Enjoy a very satisfying European breakfast before continuing your visit or leaving on your journey. Our whole visit both to the hotel and Pau was delightful. Our introduction to the city was enhanced by the kind help of the proprietors.

The hotel is really well located in the city centre. The building itself is very attractive, the rooms have been recently refurbished, but the main thing is that the owners are the nicest, kindest, most accommodating people you could wish to meet. Nothing is too much trouble!

While this is a 3 Star Hotel, the experience far exceeds this, thanks a lot to the location and the Manager, Charles. The Hotel is beautifully central to the restaurant district and the central city squares. There is reasonable on site off street secure parking, the breakfast is good and the cocktail lounge is great. The rooms are generous and... More

This was a return visit to Hotel Bristol after more than 2 years. They say you should never return to a great place as you will be disappointed - in this case it isn't true. If anything this stay was better than the first time. The owners were brilliant and couldn't do enough for us, the room was spotless and... More
