This is our second stay at this particular hotel travelling to the uk and back/ Although its only a 2 star hotel, the reception staff are worthy of 4stars and are an asset to the hotel, nothing is too much trouble for them. Rooms are showing signs of being tired and in need of a makeover but there are positive areas - Shower area very good, comfortable bed there are no tea making facilities available so would be advisable to take your own. Although its a budget hotel there is no need for cobwebs[no extra charge for spiders], the houskeeper should do more thorough checks.
busy passing through to Spain.
We didn't know what to expect, being in the middle of a retail estate but Balladins was tucked away in a small green area with trees around and a small courtyard away from the bustle of the main road.The staff were exceptional, so helpful, cordial and spoke very good English.We were really surprised by the room - basic but very clean.The evening meal (a real bonus) and the breakfast were both very good value for money. An excellent budget hotel and really handy for visiting the city of Pau.
The rooms were rather small as were the shower rooms, not good for 6' 2" blokes, but we both thought it very good value for just one night.
We travel by car from Spain to UK once a year and normally stay in Pau en route in both directions. We usually stay at a different budget hotel in Lescar, but this year we thought that we would try Balladins for the first time. The price is competitive, the staff are very pleasant and attentive, the rooms are larger and more convenient, there is a shaded area to sit outside and the breakfast is superior although more expensive. It is, however, good to eat off plates in a proper dining room. Overal,l excellent value for money and we shall be returning next year.
internet (no skype restriction) food
very poor tv program, no sport, no international chanel
The French gentleman on reception spoke very good English and Spanish(where we live) and was very polite and helpful.
Our first stay at a Balladins Hotel, the one at Pau/Lons was excellent. We are going back again in September. Hope to try their restaurant as it was closed on our last visit;
Excellent no nonsense budget hotel which is clean and well staffed. Food we received for dinner was outstanding and plentiful. Will definately return.
No problems whatsoever.
The reception staff were very friendly and helpful.They allowed me to leave my car at the hotel whilst i was away cycling for a few days prior to staying there. The evening meal was excellent.
nothing-it was great
Excellent budget hotel located strategically between Pau airport and the Pyreneees. The surroundings are quiet and rustique, but it is very close to an industrial zone which is comfortable to stock up for supplies before hiking the mountains. Quality of the hotel was better than e.g. Formula 1 hotels.
The hotel was adequate for our needs as we only stayed two nights en route to central France from Santander.
Difficult to find.
We needed a Hotel near to Pau for the Pau G.P. weekend & its location was ideal & the sevice was excellant.
Lack of shower gel,& extra pillows.
it was warm after along drive
there was not a resturant to get a hot meal
The staff were very pleasant and helpful even though most spoke little English; The breakfast buffet was varied and good. There are a couple of interesting resturants quite close.
This was a last minute booking during the Tour de France so everywhere else was booked solid- It was further away than I normally stay without a vehickle (4.5km fm the city centre) but there was a half a hourly bus service near by.
friendliness f desk staff
smell of room - probably from smoking?
