All of the rooms have awesome views of lush landscape and the Bordeaux city centre. The hotels are well appointed and luxurious. Hotel staff was wonderfully helpful in setting up wine tours and restaurant reservations. Also the hotel restaurant was excellent and shares the same great views of the city!

Just outside Bordeaux this hotel is a great base for exploring the area and the Bordeaux vineyards. Unusual contemporary decor considering this is a Relais & Chateaux property. Awesome views of the city of Bordeaux with easy access by car. Very small town with only 1 casual restaurant, which is excellent and worth going to instead of the high prices... More

Very comfortable, modern rooms with views of the Bordeaux old town and river valley. Gourmet meals except on Sunday when you have to eat at a great bistro across the street also run by the hotel. Staff was very accommodating with early check-in and late check-out during non-busy week. Town is very small, so a car is necessary if you're... More

Great setting with an incredible view on Bordeaux and surroundings. From the room you have a permanent changing tableau that changes every minute. The service was superb and the meal we had in the gastronomic restaurant was worth every penny. It's really worth a stopover and it stays as a not to forget experience.

We stayed here for 5 nights after selling our house near Bordeaux and finding ourselves "homeless" for a short time. We have eaten in both the gourmet hotel restaurant and at L'Esperance on many occasions over the years, but had never stayed in the hotel. We chose the hotel for 2 main reasons ... Firstly, we are devotees of Relais... More

Just not our cup of tea. It is an unusual place and setting and on one hand, this makes it interesting. At the other hand, we might sound old-fashioned but we love the more typical R&C locations. Rooms are good and was nice to swim but .... hmmmm, could have been better after all.
