Although the main attraction is the restaurant (2 Michelin stars), this is a charming hotel set in beautiful grounds. If you don't need to be in the centre of town, it is a good option. Our room had a magnificent view of Bordeaux, the bed was extremely comfortable and generally it was of a high standard. Only complaint was the ineffective air conditioning (badly needed as there was a heatwave when we visited and the temperature was around 37 degrees). It made a lot of noise but did not seem to cool the room at all ! The pool is very nice and large enough for lap swimming. Service was very pleasant, although our request for extra pillows was met with a simple "we have run out of extra pillows and we don't have any more" - which was a bit disappointing. The restaurant is excellent - although I was very pleased that we dined on the terrace as the interior dining room does not have much ambiance. I would certainly stay here again.
