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!

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...

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...

Lovely clean hotel. Comfortable and clean. Centrally located so good for just about any reason to be in Pau. Safe car parking off street. Charming couple run hotel with limited English, but is France so not a problem. Full European buffet in mornings and fresh produce every day. Loved the small lift. Simple, clean, quiet....what more do you need?

I stayed at the Bristol for several days and enjoyed it. The hotel is attractive and modern yet atmospheric. The hard-working owner, Charles, was warm and enthusiastic, helping me with directions, food recommendations, etc. The breakfast was wonderful, fresh and varied. The hotel is nicely located, a few blocks from the main drag with its restaurants, bars and shops.
