We stayed one night and had the Menu St James in the restaurant. The tasty imaginative cooking with impeccable and relaxed service was a joy. The buffet breakfast the next morning was also lovely. This is a class act in every respect.

After a great deal of research into hotels for a wine discovery trip to the region we booked the St. James. We fully understood that the decor of the hotel is modern and some of the comments are surprising as the website explains this. The Deluxe room we had was perfect, great view of Bordeaux, large, well equipped and comfortable.... More

A very nice hotel designed by Jean Nouvel. The hotel overlooks the city of Bordeaux and had it's own vineyard producing 600 bottles a year. Ground floor rooms are touching the vines and have a pleasant table to seat and read outside. However no privacy as the rooms are full glass and only electric curtains for the night. Beautiful terrace... More

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
