Gorgeous south facing building, with a pleasant terrace along the front front to sit and enjoy the sun or a warm evening. Friendly and helpful owners, free car parking in the centre of town, room rates not too expensive. I wouldn't bother searching any further. We came for a couple of nights and stayed nine!! The owners are exactly kind of people suited to run a hotel as their good humor and energy seems boundless. Help or advice never a problem. Breakfasts always had loads of good things. Nice wines for a drink in the evening.

Room Tip: All the rooms I could see face south on to the front garden/ leafy car park. I don't think there is really a bad room here. ( two only face the street side)

Everything about this hotel was excellent. We came by motorbike, would recommend it to anyone, on foot, car, bike... Very good sushi at YouSushi on the same road. Double bath in bathroom for soaking travel-weary limbs. Breakfast great.

First stay at the Hotel Bristol in the centre of Pau. We arrived in Pau in the dark at around 10:30pm on Sunday 2nd September 2012 after a long 9 hour drive up from Valencia in Spain, enroute to the UK. We chanced upon the Hotel Bristol when driving around the historic district of Pau, our only reference on Pau was that we had seen it on the TV during the Tour de France.

The hotel manager greeted us very warmly, made us up a tray of fresh coffee and bottles of cold water so that we could relax on the verandah at the from of the hotel before we turned in for the night. Very welcoming. He also spoke Spanish which was a big bonus as we do too!

We chose room 307 which was recently refurbished, very well appointed with new furniture, comfortable double bed, big ensuite bathroom with new fittings, loads of space and a view from the third floor windows in the bedroom and the bathroom.

Free wifi was a welcome facility and also the excellent car parking which we felt very secure about as the main gate was locked at 11pm overnight.

Excellent fresh continental breakfast in the bright sunny breakfasting room.

The staff at the hotel were genuinely warm and friendly. Hotel is very well appointed and spotlessly clean.

The Bristol is well situated close to the historic centre of Pau, we enjoyed a morning walk to the Chateau de Pau before breakfast.

Also before we departed to the UK the manager arranged another tray of coffee for us on the verandah - a nice touch.

We will return to this hotel again and again in the future on our frequent drives from the UK to our home in Spain.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 307 which was very spacious with a great ensuite

My girlfriend and I spent a night here in early September on our way down to the Pyrenees with our bikes. The building is beautiful, the car park expansive and the charming, elegant owners gave us a warm welcome. The room was fine if a bit basic for the price. Two real complaints: First, to store our bikes securely in the hotel overnight the owner wanted €10 per bike. When we suggested this was a bit steep he pushed back hard, refusing to negotiate. This seems to me a massive rip-off, un connerie, designed to exploit cyclists following the traditional route down to the Pyrenees. Is it normal? I certainly have never been charged for bike storage at any other hotel. Second, there was no hot water for showering before bed. I let the water run for 5 minutes in hope, but no hot water arrived. The next morning the owner brushed off my complaint with a wink and a smile, explaining that the hotel is an old building and sometimes it takes a while for the plumbing to kick in, which was not exactly the apology I was looking for. I would like to stay here next time I visit Pau so I hope they can iron out the creases in an otherwise great place.

Reply to your comments:

First regarding bicycles.

After several disappointments with cyclists disrespectful, to whom we had left their bikes to their room, where we found grease on the carpets and bed linen.

After that we decided to make a secure bike shed, which is 10 € per day.

I do not think this is a scam, since you been warned upon arrival. You could leave your bike in your car inside our parking is free and secure.

You forgot to say that Mr. the day of your departure, you are left to Lourdes bikes, and you leave your car in our free parking up in the middle of the afternoon.

We have proposed with great pleasure.

Regarding hot water know that we are not rationing. But actually our house dates from the 19th century, hot water arrives after a few seconds, refaitent Installations have been there less than 7 years.

Sorry that our house did not give you satisfaction, I invite you to retry another stay at Bristol during the next trip.

Cordially.

This is very convenient and very reasonably priced. We stayed because of the other good reviews and were not disappointed...easy arrival with on-site parking, and very convenient to the historic center and the major attractions of Pau. Good breakfast, although there was an extra charge. Large rooms and very up-to-date bathroom. Ask for higher floors for better view.

Room Tip: Higher floors have better views.

Dear Sir, Dear Madam,

Sure, Tripadvisor is the best way to find a good hotel !

We are very happy that you had a great stay in our hotel.
When the sun is shining, the view of the 4nd floor is effectively excellent !
