“Excellent stay to while circling around the Bordeaux Wine region”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2012

We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this little hotel and were surprised by the very nice rooms and the charming service. Also their winery for shure is worth a visit (and a degustation...)

Also their restaurant recommendations are well worth a visit and will round up a relaxing wine trip day nicely.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2011

My partner and I spent four wonderful nights at Hotel Rollan de By this past August and had a truly wonderful time. We came across the hotel through Trip Advisor and were honestly a bit nervous by how positive the reviews were (seemed too good to be true), but our trip was absolutely perfect. The hotel feels very small and intimate, service was great, and breakfast was delicious. We enjoyed going on some long runs in the surrounding vineyards, and also found the hotel's recommendations of other local restaurants and tourist sites to be very helpful. Begadan is a bit further north in Medoc, so if you are planning to spend much time in Margaux area further south be prepared for a bit of a drive, but a beautiful drive at that. The offsetting positive of being further north was the great access to beaches just 30 minutes due West.

Found this hotel just as good as we were expecting. Our room being the smaller and cheapest was lovely but if you need a bath you will have to pay the higher prices. The hostess was extremely helpful and provided us with a lovely breakfast. As a hotel it is a shame there is no restaurant. Also be warned it can be a little noisy during harvest time!!!!

We stayed here for 3 nights and it was fantastic. Marion was incredible from our first point of contact right through, nothing was a problem and we felt right at home. The breakfast was amazing, beds super comfortable and the wine from the hotel vineyard was excellent. Only wish would had stayed longer.

We stayed for 3 nights during which time we ran a marathon at Pauillac. The Hotel was an absolute joy to come home to after such a long hard day. Marion was faultless in her hospitality, she had waited up for us on our first night after a long drive from the airport, and was there whenever we needed her without being intrusive. Thanks so much again Marion! :) Melody and Jon.

Room Tip: Both the rooms I saw (Rollan de By and Haute Condiass?) were beautiful.

Before we arrived at the hotel Marion already emailed us and was kind enough to look after my wife's gluten allergy for breakfast.

The rooms are very nicely appointed and our bathroom was bigger than many hotel rooms, containing both a bath and a walk in shower.

The hotel is located in a very quiet location, and has lovely gardens for your use.

Marion was also kind enough to show us the winery. We couldnt help but buy a few bottles too - lovely wine.

Highly reccomended.

When initially researching hotels in the Medoc region of Bordeaux, my husband and I found only one hotel which had consitently high ratings: Hotel Rollan de By. And having visited for a (woefully short) 2 night sojourn, I can quite frankly find nothing to fault this loveliest of hotels. There are only a few rooms (6 if I remember correctly) each individually decorated and named after grape varieties. Our room 'Cabernet' was beautifully appointed with a large, comfortable bed, big bath and shower room, seating area and TV, free wi-fi, and top-notch comforts befitting any 5 star hotel. We arrived late on a Saturday evening, to be met by the Manageress, Marion Cousin, who kindly made us a light meal (although the hotel does not serve dinner). She had also ensured that my gluten-free dietry requirements were catered for at breakfast (a rare attention that most other places seem to conveniently ignore). Marion was incredibly helpful and accommodating: she gave us helpful advice on places to visit, wineries to explore, and restaurant recommendations. On our last morning, Marion offered to escort us to the local Chateau Rollan de By winery, showing us the cellars and going through the history of the estate, which was extremely kind of her and very enjoyable. I would recommend Hotel Rollan de By to anyone looking for a peaceful escape to the beautiful northern Medoc region. A setting slightly back from the main road ensures quietude and relaxation, yet with a handful of delightful local restaurants a stone's throw away. Hotel Rollan de By get's my five star vote: something which so few hotels can match in my opinion (and I'm travelling most weeks, so I've seen a few!)

Room Tip: Suggest top floor room to benefit from the view over the grapevines, but all rooms are superb.
