La Maison Bord'eaux
Ranked #96 of 174 Hotels in Bordeaux
Reviewed 17 June 2011

Stayed in Bordeaux for just two nights as part of a 17 night tour of France - the city was a nice surprise and we were warmly welcomed by the manager's son - Mr Bonnet. (once we finally found it). Thank goodness for sat nav, also worth mentioning that the sign of the hotel is exceptionally small and in a one way street. So if you happen to drive past you have to go around again!
We were shown to our room which was in the stable block - the building is lovely and so nice to have a courtyard to look out on even though you're in the middle of the city.
Although very modern in design we found the room not to be very functional in some ways - nice to have tea and coffe making facility but the sockets were way under a desk, so had to plug in at the sink in the bathroom area. Also I don't think chipped cups are acceptable in this price range. We stayed in the room named Jean and I liked the decor, however the colour makes the room very dark.
We didn't have breakfast but I think 15 euros each is a bit pricey, although this seems to be the going rate in most of the hotels we stayed.
We didn't visit Bordeaux to watch t.v. but thought we'd catch up on some news - only one English speaking channel - CNN.
We enjoyed our stay in Bordeaux and the hotel we would describe as fine but would probably look for something else if in the city again.

Room Tip: look out for the tiny name plate of the hotel

This hotel is in a fabulous old building - charmingly converted into a stylish, modern hotel. Everything about it was good - location (quiet area but very close to the city centre), our room (large and beautiful with a lovely terrace looking out over the city), bed (huge and with fabulously-comfortable bed-linen), tea & coffee-making facilities (a big plus for anyone from the UK!), bathroom products (wonderful - by Hermes), breakfast (delicious and plentiful). The welcome is extremely warm, and the service very professional. I strongly recommend this hotel.

When there are so many websites available with photographs, and review services available for hotels such as Trip Advisor, I truly believe that if you have a bad hotel experience these days it is probably your own fault. The trick is to know what you want, and make sure you choose it.

Reading the reviews for this hotel, I can understand the point of view of the negative ones, but the real issue is that they have not made the correct selection. We stayed in both the orange room (Melanie) and the lilac room (Violette), and found them quite delightful, particularly the latter. We delighted in them for exactly the same reasons as critics objected to them. Would my parents like it here? Absolutely not. But we loved it, and will definitely return.

One comment with which I cannot agree, however, is that the owner is rude. I cannot imagine this to be the case, unless confronted by extreme rudeness in a guest.

As I said in my heading, this is very definitely a case of chacun a son gout. If you don't know what that means, you probably shouldn't stay here.

The Hotel itself is quite nice set in its own courtyard trendy, but absolutely no atmosphere. When we arrived were shown to our standard room which absolutely stank of drains. When we asked if something could be done we, sure enough we were shown a couple of other rooms and decided to upgrade to a superior room. Having negotiated a new rate with the owners son we were relatively happy although there was still a feint smell in this room too. Long story short when we checked out the Owner tried to renegotiate the rate with us for a higher figure when we objected he got quite nasty and reverted to the rack rate.

I am not spitting my dummy out because I didnt get what I wanted it was genuinely the worst display of customer service I have ever experienced

Our only mistake was not agreeing the new rate in writing with the owners son

This hotel (which is much like an upscale North American B&B) is situated in a lovely old stone house and its stable, both inside a courtyard that is hidden from the street. It is about a 10 min. walk from the center of the old city, with the remains of a 2nd century Gallo-Roman amphitheatre a few buildings away. Our room (upstairs in the stable) was large as was its shower room - quite a contrast with the many Parisian hotels we have stayed in. We found the staff to be friendly and efficient; the continental breakfast was filling and typical of what we were served elsewhere in southwestern France - breads, juice, fruit, yogurt, prosciutto, cheese and excellent coffee. As this was our first trip to Bordeaux, we were interested in seeing as much of the old city as possible, and were out walking for most of our for 4 day visit. I suspect that a car would be a hinderance as the old streets are very narrow and parking is at a premium.
In summary our needs were relatively simple - we wanted a large comfortable room with breakfast, close to the city center, and preferably in a heritage setting. For us la Maison Bordeaux was a perfect fit.
