We really enjoyed our stay at CB. The location is so convenient to the surrounding wine region and the little refurbished town in which it is based, Bages, makes for a nice walk; it even offers a few nice stops like the Bages Bazaar, Café Lavinal, a bike shop, and the butcher shop. If you desire a longer walk or run, head west across the main route and into Pauillac where you can run along the waterfront or shop with more selection. The hotel’s grounds are lovely, impeccably maintained and the establishment’s small size gives it a very cozy feel. The staff is exceptionally thoughtful and service-oriented. Everyone treated us with overflowing kindness. The hotel has a decent restaurant (see other review) and there is an elegant porch out back, where you can survey the vineyard over a glass of wine. It’s the perfect spot to sip wine and relax (unfortunately, my wife’s allergies were extreme when we visited and thus we could not partake in extended outdoor activity). We stayed in an amply sized suite that had a comfortable bed with full separate bathroom. The toiletries, although good quality, were a tad sparse. The complimentary breakfast had a variety of offerings. We visited a number of chateaux in Pauillac and this was truly a wonderful base of operation. It was a delight coming back each evening or during the afternoon and not having to drive back into Bordeaux proper. I did not see a gym but they do have a pool, We look forward to visiting CB again and enjoying the amenities and delightful staff.
