My fiancé and I stayed at this hotel recently as we were celebrating our recent engagement and my fiancé's birthday. I mentioned this to the hotel staff in advance to see if there was something special they could have waiting for my fiancée. Instead the hotel graciously and kindly upgraded us to a junior suite for the weekend. We were unbelievably grateful at this kind gesture. The room was incredible. Very luxurious. The only thing we noticed was that there was not a lot of light in the rooms but other than that the furnishings were great and we had a considerable amount of room. To top it off we were given a late check out and other sweets and treats on arrival. A truly exceptional hotel experience. When we return to Bordeaux in the future this hotel will be our first contact. Collapse

We were so excited to arrive at the Intercontinental, the hotel is stunning from outside, driving up and leaving the car with the concierge right outside the front door felt very special, our luggage was taken along with the car keys and it all started very well, we were told we had been upgraded because we had our baby with us, even more excitement! Our room was on the 3rd floor and that's when the little faults began... firstly the third floor has a series of little steps. 3 lots of maybe 3 or 4 steps to get to our room after vacating the lift. Bit annoying with a pram. Especially when staying for 3 nights. Secondly the room, yes it's dark - but it's quite nice being different. It was quite large (no view) I liked the theatre styling and they had left little touches for our son which was a lovely surprise. The room was very hot and when we went to turn on the air conditioning it had no power to it, we mentioned it to the reception who said they would send someone to fix it, when we came back from our evening out the door to the outside was wide open in order to cool the room but the air conditioning was obviously not fixed and didn't work for our whole stay. Breakfast started well, we got there at 10:15 (it finished 10.30) we got a great table in the window, we asked for a high chair and we were told after about 5 minutes. Sorry it's being used. That's it. Nothing else. Just - we only have one and it's in use. Sorry what?!!! Ok well seeing as the one you have is being used our son won't eat? Well as you can imagine we were a tad surprised and eventually the staff went to find Another one on our insistence. The food was nearly always all gone at 10:15 and it wasn't replenished at this time. Which is disappointing when the time stated is until 10:30. Therefore most days they didn't have a lot of things remaining. We went to take a look at the pool, we were showed around and it looked lovely and then the lady at the spa said she would have to check if it was included in our stay (like others who have written in reviews previously we were never given the option to include it or not at the time of booking, nor told it costs extra) anyway we were informed it wasn't included, it would be 50 euros to add it on, ok that's fine, annoying but we were prepared to pay in order to take our son to the pool to then be told that our baby could only use the facilities between 9:30 and 11am - meaning only one 1.5hrs would fit with our stay of 3 nights due to us only being informed after this Time on our first day and our departure time on day three. I hate being victimised as a parent. Fine have rules of when the children can use the spa but then maybe make it inclusive for those parents because to only be able to use the facilities for 1.5hrs a day at 50 euros seems rather expensive to me. The parking was another bug bear at £35 euros a day. We asked for tea one night as none in the room (just tea bags) we were brought the tea on a tray and charged 10 euros for it. Just little irks. We loved the location, how beautiful the hotel was - lots of positives but it let's itself down with the little touches. Collapse

Under the new Intercontinental brand, this illustrious hotel is looking to join in with Bordeaux's renewed touristic vigour. Service was excellent and proudly bilingual (I suspect they get their fair share of Anglophones! Rooms are very old school in terms of lustrous velvets and swooning curtains, but it's all part of the fun. The spa with its counter-current little swimming pool (I kept thinking of Edina in Ab-Fab) was similarly over-the-top. Will come back to sample the roof bar in Summer. Location cannot be beaten, just by the tram and next to the theatre and the main shopping street (France largest, busiest or shoppiest or something like that). Just lie back and enjoy the carpeted walls!! Collapse

Loved Bordeaux. Loved this hotel. Incredible location, you feel you are staying in the heart of the city. Great service. Large room, charming old style hotel. Great beds. The décor may not be to everyone's taste but has its charm. Loved the spa. Again, the décor is different but the pool is relaxing. The counter current machine in the pool is awesome. Spa services were good too. Loved the sauna with a view. Really good team in the Spa. Good bar and Le Bordeaux restaurant is worth a visit with great food and incredibly good value for a prix fixe and the best onion rings ever. Would love to go back. Did I mention the roof top Jacuzzi? Wow. Huge thanks to all the team who made our stay so good. A really special hotel with 5 star service. Collapse

We flew in from Portugal 2 weeks into a 5 week holiday.. A friend had recommended this hotel for all the right reasons.. Location-Location-Reputation.. We were immediately reassured when at arrival we were able through the expeditious assistance of the Concierge to arrange at short notice a private tour of nearby fabled wine makers and the regional towns with their accompanying delights. This being speedily achieved we proceeded to the rooftop terrace bar with a great view of the city, whilst our luggage was spirited into our suite, - an opulent haven of plush fabrics, furniture & finishes.. two bathrooms, separate lounge and all the comforts of home. The bistro and the adjacent Cafe Bellini at the hotel forecourt/on the square were the perfect locations to watch the passing parade, and absorb the wonderful splendour of this fabulous 'refurbished' city. (the Mayor had initiated & had undertaken an extensive 'cleaning' & refurbishment of all the major buildings that had been blackened by decades of neglect, resulting in a truly splendid & well tended appearance of the City Centre) The light rail passes right through the square and is the perfect way to get around the major city thoroughfares, operating on a seemingly 10-15minute interval timetable. Other than that Bordeaux is an easy city to walk around and the Intercontinental certainly holds the pride of place location. We had breakfast in the hotel two out of three mornings and everything on offer was a tasty delight with attentive staff alert to any requirement. We wouldn't hesitate to return to the InterContinental whenever in Bordeaux. Collapse
