Expert reviews

Fodors review:

“Festooned in luxury fabrics and 18th-century furnishings, this posh extravaganza, designed by France’s überchic Jacque Garcia, put Bordeaux back on the world scene with its veritable army of restaurants and bars, along with a swanky Roman bath–inspired spa—all just steps from the city’s Golden Triangle shopping district.”

Frommers review:

“After decades of neglect, the majestic Grand Hôtel was reborn in 2007, with an exquisite interior makeover by decor-maestro Jacques Garcia. Taking inspiration from its neighbor the Grand Théâtre, the lush decoration hints at 19th century theater trimmings, and the unusual color schemes gracefully blend the old and the new.”

Lonely Planet review:

“Beautifully located in the chic, shop-laden Triangle d’Or, this enchanting three-star hotel languishes inside an 18th-century hôtel particulier (mansion) and first opened its doors as Hôtel du Coq d’Or in 1912.”

Telegraph review:

“The Grand has been a Bordelais institution since the 1920s, when it expanded to its current dimensions. Today all of Bordeaux life rotates around this lavish neoclassical monument, dripping with history. A stay here is an unusually decadent and must-have experience.”

The finest hotel in France ! Food , facilities and staff . 10/0

This hotel is one of the best . Location was excellent but it’s the decor and staff that make this hotel special . Amazing !

It’s perfect


5 August 2023

Very good

The location the hotel itself the rooms and the staff

The roof top bar is a complete rip off, charging €18 for regular bourboun or cognac, I believe the same prices in the original restaurant, much better value to be had elsewhere in town and more atmosphere. Hotel should consider dropping prices indoors to create a bit more atmosphere, I'm guessing it's empty because of the prices.

A grand and historic old building — slightly faded grandeur.

This hotel is a grand old dame in the heart of the old city. Ideal for walking about the historic section of the city, through narrow, winding, cobbled streets and past a myriad of outdoor cafes and buildings of prior glory. The hotel, still clothed in yesterday’s finery, is a bit faded and worn and offers plenty of character. Our room matched the rest of the hotel in decor and was small but comfortable. Bed and shower were great. A lot of variety in hot and cold dishes for breakfast but nothing out of the ordinary.

Exceeded service!! Signed up for an IHG membership. Definitely seek out IHG hotels in the future

Room 207 - near elevator, quiet, bedding

Bar no necessary. Takes up too much space in room. Kept tripping on step up into bar area

A lovely, historic building centrally located for walking to sites.

We stayed in a junior suite, spacious. A view of the opera house across the square was an added bonus. The staff was very helpful and the restaurant out on the patio was lovely. Right next to the longest pedestrian street and walkable to the Bourse. Really recommend this hotel.

Bordeaux is a wonderful city and the hotel is in the best location to venture out. We made the most of walking to locations around the Hotel.

Great stay in Bordeaux with easy walking or tram access to all the sights.

Beautiful rooms, great location!

Was a bit expensive.


14 May 2023

Bathed in luxury… beautiful traditional French surroundings

The location was fantastic. Very central to restaurants, historic sites, river walk and parks. There was a fun rooftop restaurant that served drinks only. Over the little balcony off our room that overlooked the opera house.

At the rooftop bar, it would have been nice to order small plates or charcuterie/ cheese plate which doesn’t take a lot of prep


7 May 2023

lovely stay, exceptional staff

historical building maintained elegantly. location across from Opera House and in the center of everything.

no access to the roof after dark, when I take photographs.


16 April 2023

perfect for a luxury city break

The hotel is in the perfect location to explore Bordeaux. We had a room with a balcony overlooking the square and theatre, which was a great private space to relax. There was an excellent selection at breakfast each morning. The staff were all welcoming and helpful especially the concierge team. It was great to have a small swimming pool and sauna available in a city centre hotel.


13 April 2023

Overnight in Bordeaux historic centre

Very comfortable room. Excellent staff. Perfect to wander old town with parking available.

Breakfast very expensive so we just walked round the corner to a bakery. You were required to wear a swimsuit in the sauna and hammam.


27 March 2023

Excellent Experience

The hotel is excellent. We were welcomed by Anton and he was a really kind and helpful person. The hotel room is excellent with night view of Opera. The location is right by the heart of Bordeaux. The best part of the trip was the Spa. Amazing Spa design and really relaxing experience.
