Expert reviews

New York Times review:

“La Course townhouse is on a quiet street just steps from the green Jardin Public and the C tram that goes south to the Gare St. Jean. It’s a fine base for exploring boutiques and bars. There are bicycles, a small gym and steam room, and a wine cellar where tastings can be arranged.”

Featured in New York Times’ 36 Hours in Bordeaux.

Frommers review:

“Right opposite the Jardin Public park, this beautifully appointed luxury chambre d’hotes offers a friendly reception, a wine tasting cellar, and easy access to the shops of Chartrons. If you want to “push the boat out,” the “Under the Stars” suite has a glass roof and private terrace with a small pool.”

Telegraph review:

“La Course is a Maison d’Hôtes de Luxe. That translates as a former family home flipped into a spellbindingly luxurious B&B. Grab a bottle of Bordeaux from the cellar, steal a platter of snacks from the fridge, then snuggle up in front of the log fire.”

Home away from home

Was fantastic. Cosy with an extremely friendly staff that made you feel so welcome. Took care of every need and loved that I was able to use a bike to get around the city anytime I wanted!

Honeymoon weekend at La Course

Clothilde, Coline, Léa and Lucie went above and beyond to make our stay extra special. Our room, Suite Soires was very clean, specious and the bed was super comfy. The location was perfect, all the main attractions were in walking distance. We loved our walks in the Botanical gardens just outside of the hotel. We would love to stay here in any future visits to Bordeaux!

The pool was stated as heated however despite the staffs best efforts the water was too cold for the whole of our weekend stay

French charm and gorgeous accommodation

Our room was on the second floor - Superior suite and had a large bedroom, a separate bunk room and large bathroom and separate toilet. it is one of 5 suites. Downstairs is a lovely kitchen dining room and outdoor tables for breakfast which is cooked and served for you by delightful staff. there is a wine cellar and glasses of wine can be purchased. it’s a beautiful old but refurbished three level French terraced place. Lea was incredibly helpful when we were arriving later and provided instructions as to how to access our room via text as well as email. Would definitely stay here again !

A place to unwind and relax but still feel at home during your stay.

I don’t know where to start! This place is a true gem and wish could have stayed longer than one night. So many little details that made the stay feel so relaxing. The bath tub is out of my dreams. The staff were so friendly and warm, and the breakfast was a great. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

A little oasis in the middle of Bordeaux

Loved staying La Course, must be the most friendly and service oriented guesthouse I've been to. Wonderful breakfast and bikes for the guests to use. Too bad we stayed only for one night. Will definitely come back!

Our room had a bath tub with no cover or curtains, making it difficult to shower without splashing down the bathroom. But minor detail really, everything else was really great.


11 September 2022


The room was beautiful and even nicer than the photos online. Loved the wine machine and breakfast was great. Perfect location by lots of eateries. Staff was very helpful.

cannot fault it. perfect place for everyone!

Exceptional - we were treated like Royalty. Made our Anniversary trip feel spectacularly special.

Full included breakfast in our suite at no additional cost was the icing on the cake. Staff knew our names before we had even met them, and couldn't have been happier to help us with recommendations for restaurants and hear how our day was on our return. Facilities and rooms were of the highest standard of quality and cleanliness. Lots of little extra touches such as a mindfulness journal in the room. Very quiet and idyllic location - occasionally heard a car in the distance or other guests faintly in the halls, but otherwise very peaceful.

It would have been nice if more of the snacks on offer (such as the baguettes and spreads) were included - the paper honesty system was a little confusing as we weren't totally sure what we had to pay extra for, so we just avoided it altogether. We read that cakes were included but couldn't find any. We couldn't figure out how to use the coffee machine, so perhaps some instructions next to it would have been helpful. The "hammam" was really just one small room, and treatments were at an additional cost - so I wouldn't really say it included spa facilities. Would have preferred proper shampoo and conditioner in the room rather than just a single generic all-in-one body and hair wash (which turned my hair to straw!)

cherished memories forever ! stylish comfortable exquisite stay with stunningly good breakfast on the balcony of our own

absolutely exquisite Bordeaux town house with a huge open plan front room and sitting room leading to an outside area and breakfast room. A super warm welcome and brilliant hosts. it was like being part of the family in the dream house. our room was the Green eco room with the balcony and this was thee best room for us because of the outside area and value for money.

the bed was not huge and although it was a double bed, it was a bit of a squeeze for me and my very tall partner. there were not many storage facilities but it was perfect I’m the end for 2 nights.
