Official star rating:
Just opposite the landmark Grand Theatre in the heart of the Golden Triangle, Bordeaux’s 230-year-old Grand Hotel is once again the shining star of its luxury hotel scene.
Originally designed by the great Parisian architect Victor Louis as a vast, private mansion, this neo-classical masterpiece sits proudly in a prime location on Place de la Comédie, Bordeaux’s central square.
Behind the impressive facade, the interiors are equally grand thanks to a thorough renovation by top interior designer Jacques Garcia’ vaulted ceilings, chandeliers, marble surfaces and opulent baroque flourishes. Filled with the spirit of Bordeaux’s renaissance, it oozes colour, elegance and class.
The elegant Michelin-starred Pressoir d’Argent restaurant, named after its silver lobster press, is one highlight; the magnificent Spa Guerlain and roof-terrace Jacuzzi is another.
Wine lovers will adore the dedicated wine concierge for arranging visits to and tastings at Bordeaux’s most prestigious chateaux.
The location is ideal for sightseeing – and you’re in the heartland of Bordeaux’s beautiful architecture here. The surrounding Golden Triangle is a lively, bustling area, busy night and day with cafés, restaurants and high-end shops filled with locals and visitors.
