“Undersells itself”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2013

We were struggling to find a hotel in the Medoc/ Bordeaux area, and came across this by chance. In sweltering heat, we needed effective air con, and wanted a hotel with good food. The hotel did not say that it had air con, and rather underplayed itself; it is next door to a busy road too, so we booked it online, and took the risk. There are no big signs on the road pointing the way.

Happily, it way outperformed our expectations. The rooms are very comfortable and large with great air con, and with no noise from the neighbouring road. As the name implies, the grounds are very pleasant, and a first class meal out in the garden was much enjoyed on both evenings. The hotel is in the North Medoc, 90 mins from Bordeaux, but it is close to some very good beaches, is close to the famous and not so famous vineyards, and there is much to do and see locally, including an excellent oyster market 20 mins up the road. The owner, Michelle, is English, and her husband is the chef. They are happy you for you to drink your own bottles, charging minimal corkage, which is a bonus if you are flying home. All in all, a very good experience.

This is a charming small palace with approx 10 rooms. Nicely decorated rooms. The garden is beautiful with a nice pond and big lawn. Dinner was very good. The only thing missing was a a swimmingpool. Staff, including the owner, are very friendy and servieminded.

Michele and Jean have created just that -- a homey-feeling chateau! It's a lovely spot, well located in the Medoc. Our room was on the ground floor in the front of the Chateau and it was huge. Michele was incredibly helpful and set up a full day of winery tours for us - and she picked the perfect wineries to visit. She also recommended all of the top sights in the area and gave us a very helpful map. We had the prix fixe menu at the Chateau's restaurant - Jean is a terrific chef and the meal was excellent (and so reasonably priced too). We had a superb bottle of wine (recommended by Michele) and sat in the solarium as the sun set, having a nice chat with Michele and Jean. We felt so at-home and well taken care of at this wonderful hotel.

Room Tip: We enjoyed our stay on the ground floor but next time I would request a room on an upper floor.

My wife and I only spent one night at Beau Jardin but wish we had stayed longer. Everything was so perfect. First, the hotel is a beautiful Chateau. Our room which was the cheapest room of the hotel was large and very comfortable. We had a wonderful 3-course dinner at the hotel for only EUR25! The choice of wine was great as you would expect and prices were surprisingly affordable. But what made our experience truly unique is the wonderful personality of Michel and Jean who have been managing the hotel for 7 years now. Michele is the most gracious host you could find: extremely friendly and attentive. Jean is the wonderful chef. What a talented couple, so passionate about giving their customers the best possible experience.

We spent 2 nights at the Chateau Beau Jardin in April. Michele was extremely helpful in giving us tips on chateaus to visit for winetastings and other local attractions. The rooms were quite well equiped and comfortable and breakfast was very good-the juice Michele serves was great! If you stay there or are in the area, do not miss their restaurant-it was the best meal I had in my 10 days in France. The grounds were also lovely-we enjoyed having wine and snacks by the pond on our first night there.
