We had never been to Pau and did not really know what to expect. We chose this hotel online and crossed our fingers. We were really happy with the results. This hotel is in a great location. We parked our car in the free parking lot, and did not drive it again until we checked out three days later. We could walk to everything we wanted to see. The Hotel Roncevaux is located right in the heart of the shopping and restaurant district. It offers a cozy bar at night, and breakfast in the morning, but it is so close to so many other restaurants we only sat at the hotel bar one night, and never did have breakfast there. Too many other options beckoned. The hotel is friendly, quiet, very comfortable, and very welcoming. The staff was great.
The rooms were larger than I expected, and the amenities were all the customary ones.

"Rural base in Paye Basque with good accessibility."
Mendi Alde is actually a collection of buildings which make up the hotel in the pleasant Basque village of Osses. The restaurant provides a good standard of cuisine, with outdoor areas onto a garden as well as a bar. The price of the stay was quite expensive - the most of any of our touring stops along the Pyrenees - but this may reflect the popularity of Paye Basque, particularly in July. Osses is situated in a flat valley bottom surrounded by tall hills and within short striking distance of the higher mountains and the Spanish border, as well as a comfortable drive to the coastal resorts. It is quite idyllic in its situation but appears also to be on a busy local commuter route, despite its very rural disposition. be careful when walking along the 'main' road - cars can suddenly appear from around the corner! We also visited some local villages - the architecture resembles Switzerland more than France and the Basque churches are unique internally. St-Étienne and St-Jean-pied-de-port are hill towns well worth visiting 30 mins drive away. If you are travelling eastwards from there you must take the high road through Esterencuby and through the Foret d'Iraty towards Larrau. The scenery is stunning, although the road is narrow and steep at times. Try to take the little road south through St-Jean from Arneguy on the French side - you follow a narrow valley with Spain within spitting distance on the opposite side. Magical.
