My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights. I was not aware of the architecture or restaurant when I booked this room. I went strictly by the Relais & Chateau name. We stayed at a different Relais & Chateau the night before-which was a castle. That said, we enjoyed this hotel for what it was. Each one is different... More

It is honest to clearly say that we didn't like the architecture and the style of the hotel at all. This probably has affected my judgement. To the advantage of the hotel I must say that the location is very good and nice, overlooking their vineyard and the city of Bordeaux. Also the reception was very kind and welcoming. The... More

This was our first time at Le Saint-James and we look forward to returning. The staff were extremely helpful, friendly and efficient during our stay. The hotel is a striking combination of old and new architecture and with its art gallery and modern furniture it provides a welcome alternative to classic French hotels. There is an attractive garden with vines... More

First time we went there was for our engagement 3 years ago. We came back this year again in the same suite (top one with the Jacuzzi on the terrace). Suite is spacy enough and furniture is quite original. Low windows allow the view on Bordeaux from your bed. But the most amazing view on Bordeaux and its surroundings is... More

A hotel stay can be influenced by many things and without doubt our very positive experience at the Le Saint James owes much to the General Manager Anthony Torkington and his staff. We were most fortunate to be upgraded to chambre 10, a blissful experience if ever one is to be had in a hotel room. This space is magnificent... More

We stayed here as p andart of a trip through France. From the welcome on arrival to departure, the staff couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. The outside (from the back) of the hotel looks a bit odd, but don't let that put you off. The rooms are exceptionally comfortable and the pool a delight. We had our dog... More

Overnight stay in this iconic and astonishing hotel where modern melts into the traditional. Perfect for exploring BX ... a lovely pool awaits you at the end of the day, lovely views over the vineyards, innovative and delicious food and impeccable service. Only one thing to complain about: our stay was too short!
