Our visit was an overnight stop on a Sunday in late February, so the restaurant was not open, so had to go out for a meal. Otherwise the hotel performed well, staff cheerful and friendly and also helpful. Room was a bit stark but comfortable

Excellent modern clean hotel. Thoroughly recommended for families and couples. Perfectly located near to trams and motorway and some eateries. The pool was spotless and the staff very helpful. A great place for a trip to the Gironde.

If you want a clean hotel and nothing else this is a good choice. However, the location is not good at all you are better off spending a little more and stay closer to the city center. We did not feel very safe walking to the "tramway" just because the area feels abandoned or rundown.

I stayed here for 4 nights as I was attending a conference at the local Palais des Congrés centre. It's an area that's very handy if you're there for a meeting but it's a bit soulless otherwise. That said the tram only take about 25 minutes to get into the centre of town and a ticket isn't expensive. The hotel...

We stayed in the weekend and the hotel is "empty", restaurant even closed. But service is up to standard. There are many restaurants at walking distance. We had a a car and the location near the rocade and a few minutes drive from the city centre, the cité du vin also, was perfect for us. Breakfast is up to this...

Very upset with our stay here. We were plagued with mosquitos in our room which usually I would never complain about or write a review on here about as I know it's not normally the hotels fault. However after being bitten horrendously and up the majority of the night then counting over 15 in your room you know there is...

A pleasant hotel, renovated rooms, good breakfast with great coffee and croissants . Beautiful surroundings with a swimming pool and terrace around the pool . The only remark is not heated water in the pool , we were in June, the day was hot, but it was almost impossible to swim in cold water. The hotel has a flat roof...

A good bed and an okay room although we were bitten to death by mosquitoes overnight - windows closed, air con on full blast - but completely ineffective! Friday night in summer and a large hotel restaurant in the gourmet city of Bordeaux? Guess what - "restaurant ferme". Seemingly it's a 50/50 chance of a Mercure restaurant being open nowadays,...

We like a Mercure - we know what we are getting. A privilege room always offers dressing gowns , slippers, good coffee, but in France .... not English tea. We were given a voucher for a welcome drink - Thankyou . In my head this hotel overlooked La Lac , I could not have been more wrong. The pool and...

Very nice rooms, dinner was fantastic. Bordeaux sur lac looks a lot like an American resort with many hotels and restaurants. It's about 15 minutes from Bordeaux by car. It's cheaper to stay there than in Bordeaux.
