The hotel stands on a busy-ish road in the Medoc region not too far from Bordeaux. We had chosen it to use a base to tour the wine growing regions and also to try and find some memories of the Cockleshell Heroes raid on Bordeaux in WW2 (will be known to British readers but probably no one else). The rooms are reasonably spacious and clean without being luxurious. Despite the hotel being fairly close to the road there was no road noise even in wet weather. We might have been unlucky in room 17 as either the walls are very thin or whoever was in room 16 was deaf and had the tv on late and loud. No problem the next night. The hotel is mid range but the restaurant is not. The hotel owner is a former high level sommelier and his level of knowledge plus the French love of food produces a very pleasant evening. We ate there two nights and the cuisine was just excellent and we received superb advice on the choice of wine.
If I was staying longer I think I would probably try and find a slightly more attractive or atmospheric hotel further into the Paulliac/Margaux region but I would certainly like to take the restaurant with me. Well recommended though.
