“Excellent stay and wonderful surprise menu”
Reviewed 7 September 2012

Last minute trip so took a "suite", recently tastefully redecorated. Although effectively on the main road just by the bridge, still quiet with double glazing. Lovely bathroom with roll top bath and separate WC. warm welcome. Evening meal was excellent...we had the "menu surprise" which was sumptuous...filet du bar, tournedos Rossini and then a plate of six mini desserts.
Breakfast well presented and generous continental -8 euros.
We would certainly return if travelling that way...just off A63 junction 21...ideally placed for a stopover from the autoroute.

Room Tip: The north facing room was cooler in August

On our way to spain we did not want to do the whole trip in one day, for that reason we decided to stop somewhere around Bordeaux. We knew this logis from a one night stay some five years back and that made us decide to choose the domaine du pont de l'eyre again. What do you get a very nice logis, decent rooms, good beds, big bathroom and a separate toilet at least that ws in our room number 4. The quality of the beds is ver good, we had a very good sleep, the ret of the room needs a bit of attention, doors to bathroom and toilet diffiult to close, a broken lightbulb needs to be fixed etcetera, but maybe that is french "charme" it did not bother us too much though. The main reon for choosing this logis is the quality of the fod in the restaurant. Eric, the chef has worked in a few very high standard hotel restaurants in Netherlands before setting out to france to start his own logis. He is a masterchef, the quality of the food is outstanding, only the food should make us come back definitively, what a treat, and the best of all, not expensive at all. Everybody reading this should decide to make the domaine a stopover. Furthermore free wifi, as always a plus for me. I guess I will be back when I am around Bordeaux again.

Locating the hotel was a little difficult, as it is set back from the road, down an unmade drive. We were welcomed by Erik, the Dutch owner/chef, who was happy for us to leave our car in the car park for ten days whilst we went off on our bikes. The hotel is an old mansion house, next to the river, with bar, restaurant and gardens. The bedrooms are spacious, with high ceilings and old, traditional furniture. The bathrooms are a real treat-roomy, fully tiled, with double basins and everything required. The large windows in the bedrooms made up for the fact that the air conditioning wasn't working.The beds were comfortable and we were not disturbed by traffic noise.
The restaurant was first class and well patronised on the two nights we were there. There was a range of menus, all using locally sourced food, including fish and oysters from nearby Arcachon. The food was well-presented and delicious. The service was friendly and efficient and the decor and ambiance of the restaurant were relaxing and pleasing. Good coffee at breakfast.
Some of the public areas looked in need of refurbishment, including the stained carpet in reception, but I think that the quality of the rooms and the restaurant makes up for this.
This is a lovely hotel and provided a good start and end to our cycle trip. The cycle pathway is only two minutes from the hotel, which made this a very convenient place. My only suggestion is that they need to provide a secure place for bikes overnight, as we had to lock ours up outside.
