“Don't recommend to stay there.”
Reviewed September 14, 2010

Hotel is pretty much horrible. Rooms don't correspond at all to what is shown in the internet (probably one room is renovated, the rest are old, ugly, tiny, filthy boxes). The rates are far too high for what it is and we would never ever consider staying in this shabby place.
Staff is very unfriendly and not helpful.
If you want a bad experience, this is the place to go.
We have been there with several friends using several rooms and everybody has been disappointed by this place, so it does not seem to be an unlucky punch of a particularly horrible room/horrible staff taking care of us.
The village is charming though.
In conclusion: think twice before booking this place and go there at your own risk.

A simple town centre hotel
With very basic rooms and reasonable food
OK for a one night stopover

What a find! In the gorgeous medieval town of Pons, up on a hill behind massive ramparts, the Hotel de Bordeaux is not only a very old hostellry in its own right, being on the old pilgrim route to Santiago de Compostela, but the cuisine is superb and in the summer it is served in the pretty courtyard restaurant outside. It is worth taking a cheap flight to La Rochelle, hiring a car and motoring up here just for the night and dinner in this hotel. I can imagine it would be fantastic for a romantic night away.

The rooms are obviously constantly being updated, we were lucky enough to have the room on the top floor with a huge section of round wall where it ran round the staircase - I have read comments mentioning how small the rooms are here, but that was certainly not my experience, and the beds were fabulously comfortable. The bathroom too was large, modern and clean. It is only a 2 star hotel, but the restaurant should be considered in its own category, 4 stars at least - well worth its mention in the Michelin guide. Check the hotel's own website for details of the rooms and menus. We absolutely loved it!

  • Liked — Comfortable beds, large room
  • Disliked — Hard to say, can't think of anything
