The facility is well maintained. The room is charmingly decorated but is very small. The garden is very big and relaxing. There is a pool but very very small. It's not for swimming. In the hotel itself, there is nothing to do. The wifi is very weak so at the terrace, it's no good. It's a good base to visit...

Location a bit odd -entrance just off busy congested road. We nearly turned around and left but glad we didn't. The back garden of the property pleasant and quite small. Pond with swans and ducks coming and going. We had a room overlooking the front garden area/driveway. Room quite small but pleasant. Wardrobe space quite limited (freestanding wooden wardrobe) Ok...

The stay at this particular chateau has been the most memorable one that I could think of in recent times. The hospitable ambience which we enjoyed is a true testament of French culture and has earned commendable appreciation from each and every member of my family. I would highly recommend this place to any traveller looking for the finest experience...

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary for an exceptional lunch outdoors. The menu is very well priced (I want to say cheap given the culinary talent involved). We would have gladly paid three times more, to give you an idea of how fantastic the presentation and execution was. If you want an explosion of flavors, this is a hidden...

La Reserve is a lovely estate property with an excellent restaurant and chef and very attractive outdoors ground. There is also a pool and small spa. The chateau and rooms are very nice. The main limitation is that it is located about 15-20' outside of the center of Bordeaux, so you have to drive on the highway to spend time...

A beautiful chateau about a 20-minute drive from the city centre. We spent one night here and were surprised by the chateau’s location – it’s in the back of an industrial estate! But the grounds and property itself are stunning. It does smell quite old in there and there was a lot of dust in our room around the kettle/tea...

Definitively not a typical "chain-hotel" , amateurs of restaured old houses may love it. Very close to the airport, in a rather industrial/scholar part of great Bordeaux where a taxi drive to the center of Bordeaux will cost you approx. 45€. Around the big house there is a nice garden with a beautifull terrace. Rooms are OK, nothing special. Breakfast...

Hotel has good location for airport and ring road. Not good for town centre : buses are erratic and tram stop is about 15 mins walk. Outdoor facilities are awful : pool is tiny and mostly indoors .

A perfect base to explore The Bordeaux area. Talence is a 20 minute tram ride to Bordeaux center, and very easily accessible to airport. While Talence itself is unremarkable, this hotel and restaurant is incredibly special. The staff was warm and very accommodating. The hotel and grounds peaceful and lovely. The dinner was one of the best we have ever...

I was in Bordeaux for one night and stayed at the La Reserve. I did not have dinner there, only breakfast. Breakfast is cold stuff only (you can make yourself a boiled egg) and the quality of the food is excellent. Very good coffee, different types of preserves, cheese, and cold cuts. Of course you get yoghurt and other healthy...
