My wife and I stayed for 3 nights in August 2016. The hotel was perfect for a short break, very clean, staff very friendly and helpful and good location, however rooms are very small but as we were out every day it was fine.
There is a shuttle which runs from the airport to the train station departing every hour on the hour for 7.40 euro, then the hotel is across the road from the train station.
The old town of Bordeaux is a good 20 minutes walk from the hotel but a tram runs every 10 - 15 mins for 1.5 euro, located about 50 m from the hotel, very handy.
However, the white building next door to the hotel although discreet and quiet is a strip club. There would appear to be a few of these in this area of town opposite the train station.
The yellow open top bus tour is a must.
The wine tour with Top Growth which you book at the tourist office is FANTASTIC, you collected and dropped off at the tourist office, really good fun and the wine is beautiful.
Gordon Ramseys restaurant is a must eat at place, slightly expensive but the food and service are second to none - try the Beef Wellington!
Definitely do not eat at Restaurant L'Entrecote located 3 to 4 doors down from tourist office, there is no menu as everyone is served the same thin garlic covered steak and fries - not good, really not good. less
