I stayed at the hotel for three nights in November. It was in an excellent location for visiting the downtown area. A lot of shops and restaurants nearby as well as two different tram stops. The main tourist office is about 7 minutes by walking which is convenient for joining walking or wine tours. If you have a bit of... More

Everything good about our two day stay at the Grand Hotel Francais. This is a classic French style city-centre hotel that has recently been carefully and tastefully renovated. Friendly welcome, small but immaculately presented room with very comfortable bed and modern stylish bathroom. The buffet style breakfast had plenty of variety and was of good quality. The location is just... More

I'm giving this place top marks not just because of the usual things: clean comfortable rooms (granted some smaller, some larger), pleasant decor, great location, very good breakfast, etc. Those are all true. I'm giving it kudos because of a very unusual occurrence. We had a group of ten friends staying here one night before a riverboat cruise. Early on... More

My headlines say it all! The hotel is clean, the service is friendly and efficient, the rooms are comfortable (especially the beds), the location is extremely central to the places you would wish to visit and the shops, restaurants too. Breakfast is great and the breakfast room is nicely presented. I enjoyed having freshly squeezed orange juice among the many... More

If you arrive by train, you can take the tram to the hotel and only have to make one connection. Very easy to navigate to the hotel from the tram stop. The hotel is very well situated near the Opera House, lots of shopping and restaurants. This was an ideal location for us since we were touring wineries for two... More

We stayed here after a long travel day from Toronto-Paris-Bordeaux. The room was very large by European standards, and spotlessly clean. We took a short nap, then went out to explore the city....very easy to do as this hotel is situated within easy walking distance of the heart of the city's shopping and restaurant area. Back to the hotel where... More

We stayed here for a long weekend in September. The hotel is in a very good position just off one of the main streets with their smart designer shops. It is within easy walking distance of the main famous sites: the Grand Theatre, La Place de la Bourse and the banks of the river Garonne. The hotel has been kept... More

Very nice hotel, very clean and tidy, helpful staff, a couple of our friends had a small wait for room but we did arrive a little early, we got our room so they were able to leave their luggage in our room, so went out for a coffee and then went back and they were able to access their room.
