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

My wife and I just finished a short but thoroughly enjoyable stay at Le Saint-James. From the moment we arrived, our every whim was catered to with precision and care.

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!

We had lunch here a few days ago - the service was excellent, the food was historic and the whole experience was so enjoyable. I was the driver so was not drinking (unclouded judgement).

We closed out a recent tour of Southern France with a one night stay at the Saint-James and wished we could have stayed longer. Ironically, if our flight back to the UK had been later we probably wouldn't have stayed here (we tend to prefer St Emilion and the surrounding areas to Bordeaux itself) but it had a great reputation...

We recently visited the school (26/05/2014) and spent some 3 1/2 hours in class, followed by a fabulous lunch. The tutor was very knowledgeable, tolerent of our varying standards, amusing and giving - an excelent choice.

Le Saint-James have an amazing view of Bordeaux possibly from every room and the restaurant. The design has so much attention to detail, from the building architecture, to the interiors. This is such a great place to explore the region. Within one hour drive you can be on a magnificent beach, in the vineyards of the Medoc, St Emilion, etc.... More

It may be a style preference, but I am not a fan of ultra modern minimalist design for hotels. Modern is fine if there are decor touches that warm up the feel. This hotel was situated in a lovely quaint little town right outside Bordeaux, with its own vineyard and lovely gardens and views of the countryside. ( Not convenient... More
