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.
