“Awesome - loved our stay here.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2011

My husband and I stayed at Les Seraphines for three days during our holiday a few weeks ago. We loved our stay. Our room was beautiful and clean, breakfast and the hospitality shown to us were very nice, and the home was only a short walk from the center of town. We would definitely stay there again if we're lucky enough to return to Bordeaux!

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 2 and absolutely loved it!

We booked rather late so ended up with fewer options for our night in Bordeaux and were very happy with how great Les Seraphines turned out to be. The B&B is located close enough to easily walk to all the main sights downtown but far enough that it is very quiet and peaceful. The B&B is newer and the owners completely remodeled the building, the rooms and the eating area were fantastic. Emmanuelle was a great host and provided good ideas of where to go and what to do.

While Les Seraphines was not our first choice before arriving in Bordeaux, that turned out to be a very happy accident. This is an incredibly quiet location for being in the middle of a big city. It's opened fairly recently, so all the rooms are in great shape and are very artistically decorated. Emmanuelle is fluent in English, which is a big plus if you don't speak French. She could not have been more helpful in giving directions to places and offering suggestions of things to do. This is close to a tram line and is actually within walking distance from the train station, as long as you like walking.

What a wonderful find in Bordeaux. We booked this two days out from arrival and could not have been more happy with our stay. The inn is located a little out of the way, but it's totally worth the extra 10 minute walk to the center of town. The rooms are wonderfully decorated and the hosts are amazing. They care about you enjoying their city and do everything to help you. Breakfast each morning was lovely with homemade jams. I would not hesitate to return and send friends their way.

There is free parking - if you can find a spot on the street.

The hostesses are extremely helpful and will chat with you over breakfast about your stay and activities in town. They provide up to date info about weather and goings on about town on a chalkboard in the common room. Jams made by various family members are on offer at breakfast along with homemade yogurt and muesli - if you ask for it. We even had local canelés one afternoon.

The rooms are impeccably clean and unique. The price is worth it compared to other locations in town, despite a slightly longer walk out of the old town in the evening. A comparably priced hotel in the middle of the action isn't nearly as clean or as comfortable.

This is a fantastic B&B. It is about 15 minutes walk to the centre of town and only a little further to the riverside.
The room we stayed was perfect - a good size and beautifully designed, with a comfy bed and a great shower. All very clean and in very good condition.
There is a nice communal sitting/breakfast room with nibbles and drinks available for the guests.
The owner (Emmanuelle) was very friendly and helpful - giving us a lot of information about what to see and do.
We wish we could have stayed more than 1 night.

This B&B is a hidden gem. It was a fantastic experience. Located 15 min walk from the city center, is very convenient without being noisy.
We stayed there for 4 days and 3 nights. Our room was extremely comfortable, everything new and sparkling clean. The breakfast is so jummy, with freshly squeezed orange juice, freshly baked bread and homemade yogurt.
Our hosts, Emmanuelle & Florence, were completely charming and helpful. We had such a great time that we ended playing Scrabble together one night, as if we were old friends. Highly recommendable.
