Relais and Chateaux delivers again on a fabulous hotel! Saint-James has the appeal of a modern trendy hotel while giving the aesthetic of countryside tranquility. The bar area is somewhat modern, yet has a cozy wood-hearth fireplace. The rooms are modern while offering breath taking views of the vines and pool below, the fields beyond, and Bordeaux cut by the... More

We stayed at Le Saint James for a quick honeymoon break after Christmas. The place is wonderful and the building stunning. We had big expectations because is a relais & chateaux hotel. The room was huge with fantastic views over Bordeaux, very simple decoration but all design furniture. The service was very efficient and professional but we missed attention to... More

This hotel is a wonderful relaxing oasis near the heart of Bordeaux yet in the quiet suburban village of Bouliac. Great hiking trails nearby. Wonderful hotel. Wonderful views from the hotel known as the "balcony" of Bordeaux.

Tranquil and sophisticated hotel nestled in a vineyard. We had a ground floor room that led into the grapes, it was beautiful and fully exploited by our crew at night. The staff, particularly the bellhop/caretaker was amazingly kind,..he made sure we knew the night time codes to get in late, made sure we had bottled water, and even drove us... More

We were a group of 6 adults and 3 kids who signed up for the canelé-making class at Côté Cours, the cooking school of Hotel Le Saint-James.

Staff super friendly. Property beautiful. Couldn't find anyone in bar any time I went. Lots of noise could be heard in my room in the morning which was unfortunate. Also, mini bar didn't have all it said to do had to make point so not charged. Dining room beautiful. Staff pleasant. Overall, hotel a nice experience. Just a few kinks.

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.
