I stayed at the Best Western Grand Hotel Francais in Bordeaux in May 2010 together with my parents. We booked two rooms. My parents stayed in a Standing Room, which was quite large and nice. I had a much smaller Comfort Room, which was all right as a single room, but would be too small for two people (with luggage). The rooms are very clean and modern, I think that the hotel was refurbished in 2008. Location is central and within walking distance to all main tourist attraction. Breakfast was very good and I enjoyed the freshly squeezed orange juice.
Staff was excellent and very helpful (especially the girls at reception).
About Bordeaux - pleasant city, I would recommend taking a tour of the wine chateaux organised by the tourist office. We also went to St Emilion and took the train - the journey is long (tram to railway station, train to Libourne where you change for St Emilion, then around 25 minutes walk from the railway station to the village), but there aren't many other options (if you do not want to hire a car or take a organised tour).
Overall, we enjoyed our stay at the Best Western Grand Hotel Francais and I would recommend the hotel.
