Stayed here for a night while transiting through Bordeaux. The first attraction was the price, however there were several other features that were noteworthy: - free shuttle to the airport - ease of checkin/checkout - reliable Wi-Fi The rooms are basic, but one probably doesn't need a lot from an airport hotel. The staff was very friendly and helped provide... More

Very conveniently situated for Bordeaux airport this is far from a bland chain hotel! The reception area is full of film and sport memorabilia, great fun and every time we came through we spotted something we hadn't noticed before. Everyone we met, including the lovely Boston, were friendly and welcoming. Our room was small and the en-suite shower room tiny... More

I'd say there are about 20 hotels near the Bordeaux airport, but this individually owned hotel is the only one that offers a free shuttle bus earlier than 6 am. I usually take the early Amsterdam flight and have stayed at L'Escadrille a few times. all other places advise to call a cab, which in my personal experience.....get's you one... More

The decor is truly nuts but not in a horrible way. The room was very basic with a small en suite and small TV. The bed was comfy and the staff friendly. Very good value for money and a 2 minute drive from the airport. Would defiantly stay there again.

Do not be put off by the strange decor, this is a great budget hotel. Had a problem on arrival, the room I was given hadn't been cleaned. The friendly owner immediately gave me another with profuse apologies. This one was spotlessly clean. The room was smallish but adequate, and the bed very comfortable. It was also very quiet, despite... More

Travelers beware, the price may seem good, but it's not worth it for getting no sleep at all. The room and the bathroom was very clean. They also a offer a free shuttle service to the airport although there's a key drop-box at the Bordeaux airport, so you really don't need a ride if you rented a car. The lobby/dining... More

Positives; friendly receptionist when we arrived. Nice simple breakfast. Clean. Just weird; the whole hotel is filled with toys. EVERYWHERE!! On shelves and all over the floor. Problem is, nobody is allowed to touch the toys! And we had two small children with us. Our kids OF COURSE wanted to play with the toys! There was Lego all over the... More

This is more of a problem with the reservation , but certainly includes the hotel. Our trip over was a disaster from the start causing us to miss flights and delayed connections. Our first night after flying all day and night resulted in our missing the flight from EWR to BOD (Bordeaux). We finally arrived in Newark, NJ at midnight... More

Cheap hotel, decent room, with all the amenities such a room has (but I had an empty soap dispenser). Breakfast is very basic. I would not pay extra for it. I would have something in the airport. The hotel has a shuttle to the airport. The big dog that wanders in the dining room area might not be to every... More
