We were in Pau to watch Brive play Bayonne French rugby. This is a great place if you are going to Stade Hameau as it is only 20 minutes stroll from the stadium. The other factor was it is really dog friendly. Our giant schnauzer was made very welcome. There is no restaurant but our room had a microwave, two ring cooker and small dishwasher ( although we never used any of them). Opposite the premises is a small commercial centre with supermarket, petrol, bar and pizza restaurant. The parking is safe and has a security gate. Ok it is not in the centre of town but we were not there for that. It is close to the rocade ring road. The rooms are sound proofed. We heard no noise from other guests. If arriving after a certain time in the evening there are no reception staff. They provide you with the info you need to enter the hotel etc. Great, friendly staff here.
The downside is that there is no real place to walk your dog freely. However the reception staff recommended the grounds of Chateau Franqueville in Bizaros to walk the dog. Ten minutes max by car from the hotel and an excellent place to walk the dog. If back in Pau for the rugby in the future, will definately stay here. Great value for money.
