When it comes to the Grand Hotel de Bordeaux, you couldn't ask for a better location. You can find it located inside the Golden Triangle - the finest shopping and pedestrian area of Bordeaux.

The beauty of the Grand Hotel’s location is extended through the heart of the building. With each guest room designed by the word famous Jacques Garcia, you’ll find a wealth of gorgeous fabrics and furnishings, with unrestricted attention to detail that will surprise you at every turn.

“This hotel provides the perfect base that mirrors the delights of the region.”

When we arrived we received a beautiful welcome, and a swift check-in, we were shown to our room. We experienced an executive room during our stay, which was a well proportioned room with a gorgeous view overlooking the Golden Triangle. We would thoroughly recommend our room, which was as comfortable as it was indulgent.

If the rooms and location weren’t reason enough to stay here, then we’re certain you’d be sold on the spa. Famous for it’s service and facilities, this spa spans 100 square meters, occupying the top three floors of the hotel.

With a panoramic Jacuzzi terrace overlooking the Grand Theatre and the rooftops of Bordeaux, we’re struggling to think of better ways to spend a relaxing and indulgent afternoon. The spa comes complete with a swimming pool, sauna, hammam and fully equipped fitness room.

Not only are the swimming facilities second-to-none in the area, but also the spa treatments offer a little slice of heaven when you’re feeling the need to properly unwind, we recommend you book yourself in during your stay. The massages are rumoured to be out of this world.

Another selling point for us is the Grand Hotel’s attitude to sustainable development. As well as the necessary recycling, the hotel also boasts energy saving light bulbs, and flow regulators on the taps in the bathroom. A hotel always receives bonus points from us when they are environmentally aware, and this was a real plus point for us when it came to the Grand Hotel. As we understand it, they are currently working towards an Ecolabel, which we believe would be thoroughly deserved.

The staff at the Grand Hotel are also a real credit. We thoroughly enjoyed absorbing their local knowledge, and suggest you do the same if you were to visit. The town Cognac itself is not far away, so if you’re feeling like a bit of culture this could be a welcome trip for you to enjoy.

If you’re into more energetic excursions, then you need look no further than the Pyrenees Mountains or the impressive Atlantic coastline. You won’t find much more scenic routes for a long walk; and trust us it’s worth it.

We would thoroughly recommend the Grand Hotel de Bordeaux to anyone who’s visiting the area. We enjoyed our stay from start to finish. This hotel provides the perfect base that mirrors the delights of the region.
