Grand Hotel De Bordeaux & Spa
Why we like it
- Luxury hotel in the heart of the Golden Triangle, close to all the major sights.
- Located opposite the Grand Théâtre; both buildings were designed by architect Victor Louis in 1776.
- Plush rouge fabrics, vintage furnishings, Bordeaux stone and original floral creations define Jacques Garcia's lavish interior.
- Home to Michelin-starred restaurant, Le Pressoir d'Argent..
The Michelin-starred restaurant Le Pressoir d'Argent is the ideal location for a sumptuous meal. You can enjoy a signature lobster dish made at your table using one of only five silver Christofle presses in the world.
A first-class service: finding a suitable cruise to fit my parameters; managing to extend the time during which the offer would remain open so as to give me more time to discuss the trip with my travelling companion; and finally making all the train and hotel bookings to make the whole holiday as trouble free as possible. I cannot speak too highly of the way in which everything been conducted.

The Grand Hotel de Bordeaux benefitted from an authentic restoration in 2007, reviving it to its former prestige and 18th century grandeur. Blessed with a stunning location opposite the Opera House, The Grand Hotel is an ideal base from which to explore the region, located on the famous Golden Triangle, known as the 'quartier des Grands Hommes'.
Inside, no two rooms are the same, with 127 spacious rooms and suites to choose from including the fabulous Royal Suite, which has its own private terrace and Jacuzzi. Decorated in the baroque style, each room offers its own unique personality through opulent furnishings, chandeliers and rich fabrics.
After a busy day of sightseeing you can grab a bit to eat in The Orangeries' winter garden before unwinding at Les Bains de Léa Spa, which has a panoramic Jacuzzi terrace overlooking the city.
Warm summer's evenings were made for hotel's rooftop bar, where you can retreat for cocktails and canapés as the fiery French sunset illuminates the sky at dusk.
