We’ve been to Le Saint James in Bordeaux a few times before so knew we would have a lovely setting for a special family celebration.
Le Saint James Bordeaux helped us celebrate three birthdays in one day!
We were gathering to wish happy birthday to me, to mademoiselle and a happy anniversary to my parents. They were all milestones so a nice family meal was in order.
We book a Saturday lunch for all of us. We particularly enjoyed our lovely aperitif on the sunny terrace and the beautifully presented food.
Mr Big, Mademoiselle and I stayed at the hotel. My sister stayed at Mama Shelter (read my review). My brother and parents had their usual arrangements.
It was our fourth time at Le Saint James. We first came 12 years ago as part of a Bordeaux region road trip with Mr Big. And then a couple more times for a nice escape.
Le Saint James Bordeaux review: what we truly thought
Each time we really admire the architecture and the position. The buildings have been created by famous French architect Jean Nouvel and The brown colouring of metal goes particularly well with the reddening leaves of the vineyards in autumn.
What we liked
What could be improved
So as you can see, we still think it’s a good and different place to stay in Bordeaux. In the summer the pool setting is really a treat. I just wish they had a tad bit of refinement to the rooms and the breakfast.
