“The best hotel to stay in and around Bordeaux”
Reviewed March 25, 2014

This has got to be the The best hotel to stay in and around Bordeaux! the service is 5 star, extremely prompt and extremely courteous. The only French staff (i've experienced) who converse without any inhibition in English. the restaurant is a two star chef who is extremely adaptable and also serves excellent Vegetarian food! this is my 3rd stay at this property and Im definitely going to be back

My wife and I stayed at Chateau Cordeillan for a night in October. We went on the Spirit of Lynch-Bages Wine Tour and had the 9 course menu in the restaurant.

On the positive side, the food was spectacular. Every course was excellent and it worked together really well. The blue lobster was to die for. the service in the restaurant was excellent, friendly, not stuffy at all with great wine recommendations (especially a sweet Vouvray as an aperitif.

The wine tour was interesting and we got to taste and compare 5 different wines including the top label Chateau Lynch-Bages. Having a private tour was nice and relaxed. The only issue was that the (somewhat overpriced) wine was pretty average.

As for the hotel, it was a bit of a disappointment. Considering the not insubstantial cost one might expect something spectacular and to be honest, it is a little tired and quite ordinary.

So go for the food and don't expect much else.

The property is fabulous. It has all the ingredients to make a great luxury hotel in the french wine countryside including the architecture and the service but is lacking the final touch of the interior design found to be overly simplistic. Still this would surely be a hotel I would visit again with an adjustment of expectations.

This is a fantastic boutique hotel. The family Cazes runs the property and is immediately next door to Lynch Bages.

One of the best breakfasts of my life. Gorgeous views while having amazing coffee, croissants, etc.

Will go back when time permits for sure.

Recently enjoyed an all-too-brief (1-night) stay here, though it seemed longer since I was in contact with the staff so much prior to arriving. I went to this area mainly to visit wine producers, and while I speak french and have a few connections, had difficulty getting appointments even 2-3 weeks in advance. It seems that many chateaux now have daily 'quotas' for visitors and once these are filled, that's it. Thankfully, Clemence and other hotel staff here seem to have some connections and were able to secure appointments at some places that had ignored my emails and faxes. I've had similar experiences in Italy, where local hotels can also help to book visits, but it is probably even more valuable here since visits in this area seem hard to come by.
Contrary to what a few other reviewers have said, this is a lovely hotel. My room, although next to a service elevator, was dead quiet and beautifully furnished. The buffet breakfast here is one of the best I have had anywhere, the common rooms are elegant, and the staff is very professional and polite. So what is to complain about?
The restaurant here is also excellent, albeit expensive, so perhaps think lunch, not dinner. My only problem was that it did not offer the property's wines (Lynch-Bages or Cordeillan Bages) by the glass, which does not make any sense. Many wine producers in Italy have restaurants on the property that feature their wines, and this one should as well.
When I return to Bordeaux to visit more producers, this will be my base. Must book well in advance, however, since it is small.

Room Tip: Doubt that there is a 'bad' room here...

This is a difficult review for me as the hotel itself has all the makings of a fine one, but is lacking. Our room was comfortable, as was the bed and it's bathroom more than adequate but it was missing a great deal.

In the first instance the TV satellite system was not working and, during our 6 day stay, remained that way.

The hotel does not offer any facility to eat a light lunch and whilst every effort is made by the staff there was an amazing lack of consistency. Coffee each morning was served in a different way. Some mornings with a biscuit, some with a croissant, some mornings in a cup without a jug of milk!

We sat by the pool on 2 occasions, each time ordering tea. That was served with olives???

The room decor was 'vacant'. Warmth was lacking.

As for the restaurant I regret we were bitterly disappointed. Our meal was lacking in flavour, served cold and not worth the cost attached to it.

I do not favour writing bad reviews but this one needs listening to.
