A no frills 3 star hotel. Nicely and recently decorated and very clean. Apart from a few seats and the breakfast area, no common use spaces. The breakfast was fine, if not great. Very little hot food... more

We had two room for five nights at this hotel, and it was ideal for a short Autumn break in Bordeaux. The hotel is perfectly situated in the old part of the city, close to two main streets, but on a p... more

Owner Response
BWGHF, Propriétaire at BEST WESTERN Grand Hotel Francais, responded to this review
Dear Madam, dear Sir, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience in our hotel and would like to introduce you our sincere apologies for not been able to satisfy your expectations. As you point out, our location is ideal, all points of tourist interest, and various kinds of shops and restaurants are within easy walking distance. We have also maps of the city available to all our customers and we respond with pleasure to all their questions and requests. Our staff, whether the cleaning service, breakfast service or reception service is trained and aware every day to the wellness of all our customers. We try to always respond favourably to their request and do our best to ensure that their demands, it is met as evidenced by the other reviews. About your husband's teeth problem, you came to the reception explaining that he had suffered for several days, we questioned you about the nature of pain and called the dentist immediately. This one, was supposed to contact you directly (we gave him your room number), which the receptionist informed you before you go out for a walk. She also advised hospital emergencies in case of excessive pain. The dentist does not call back and we regret it. When you're back the next day at the reception to tell us that you had finally found another dentist, the receptionist presented his apologies for the inconvenience. On the other hand, you had booked a standard room. The room you have occupied is a Superior room, contemporary style and with a large balcony. We had upgraded you for free, spontaneously and especially with pleasure for your comfort. About our breakfast, it is offered to all our guests and is in the form of buffet free service and will, there are various organic breads, homemade cakes, fresh fruits, cheeses, various meats, local products and orange juice squeezed at the minute…. It can also be served in your room free of charge upon request. Our breakfast room is actually quite small, because we have a hold building, in case of overcrowding, so we have to clean and straighten quickly the tables so that each customer has a place. However, we also want to ensure that the buffet is always clean and appetizing and every customer to be welcomed as it should. We regret again that our hotel has not fully satisfy you and hope to have the opportunity to be better hosts. Frédéric and Sandrine Auriacombe
