We were greeted on arrival by the owner who was pleasant and very enthusiastic. However we found the room a little cramped and very warm for us even with the window open a small fan helped a bit. The bathroom was VERY small and there was no space to put anything down except on the floor. On the other hand... More

Dear American guest, Thank you for your review. I just add some detailed facts for Tripadvisor readers to embrasse the full picture of your experience. The room you chose is a 18m2 king : hardly a small room for European standards, with private WC ensuite and open bathroom ensuite. The bathroom itself is rather small because it is more like...

Valérie was such a welcoming hostess, she provided a delicious breakfast every day, our room was very homey and the price was great. She helped out planning day trips (check out the St. Emilion wine tour). My friend and I happened to get stuck in town during the marathon (you NEED to research this before you go because it will...

Merci Sandra for your nice recommandation on Tripadvisor. To help further our readers : Bordeaux hosts big events, but not so many. Bordeaux Marathon blocks the inner city for some hours of the night (because this marathon runs from 7PM to early morning hours... no cars... then) and the loop passes at the end of our street onto St Genes...

Valerie greeted us when we arrived and was terrific our whole stay. She helped us plan our visit into the city-bus,tram- advised us on what to see. A great host at this lovely B&B. Our romm was on the first floor in the front but it was never noisy. Breakfasts were delicious. It was like staying at a friends house

My boyfriend and I stayed for two nights in September. We'd had a long drive from the South and arrived a bit knackered, without having done any real research about what to do once we got to Bordeaux. On arrival, we were given a warm welcome by the lovely host Valérie. The room was stunning and had every comfort required.... More

From previous travels, we have learned that in France the standard on B&Bs is very high and gives more value for money than hotels. Valerie and her gem of a house in the UNESCO part of beautiful Bordeaux raised the bar! You stay in a beautiful home with a hostess who is there for you and makes everything to be... More

Valérie is a wonderful host. And her home is a beautiful original 19th century Bordeaux house, with big bedrooms, high ceilings and a lovely courtyard garden. Breakfast is deliciously French and home made. Even the dog is a delight. There is a fabulous restaurant 600 metres away with a Michelin star chef. All in all, you must stay here if... More

We spent four nights at the lodge in the Kiss Room and had a fantastic experience. Valerie was welcoming and attentive throughout and her delicious breakfasts kept us fuelled up during our cycles in the day time. The room itself was comfy and attractively decorated and remained warm even during the cold April nights. Valerie was helpful with tips and... More

The room was beautifully appointed, breakfast was lovely and Valerie was so helpful with maps, bus and tram times and suggestions on places of interest to visit (with directions).
