Immerse yourself in the charm and sophisticated ambience of Bordeaux’s heyday in this elegant 18th-century hotel, set right in the city’s historic Golden Triangle.

Many original features adorn the classic rooms and suites, each with their own specially-designed wallpaper and richly-upholstered furniture; the excellent soundproofing means you’ll sleep undisturbed, in spite of the hotel’s central location.

There’s an excellent spa with a whirlpool tub and spa-day packages, and a popular restaurant, Comptoir de Seze – which hosts a buzzy Sunday brunch – as well as a retro smoking room with Havana cigars.

The hotel even owns a private six-hole golf course 10 minutes outside of the centre, which makes a great breather between sightseeing.

This luxurious stay suits couples who like their creature comforts, and want a holiday feel as well as a city break.
