“Pretty little hotel just outside Bordeaux”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 February 2014

This was a delightful find - rather than battle with the traffic and parking problems of Bordeaux, Gradignan is just off the motorway and ideally located especially if you are on your way up through France to the Channel. Staff were courteous and friendly - although a bit surprised when my SatNav directed me to turn right into the cobbled courtyard (which is pedestrian only!). However when they realised I hadn't meant to invade, they laughed and pointed me to the private carpark at the other side of the hotel - and right in front of the main entrance (Bad Garmin!!). The room was small but comfortable with the normal accessories of flat screen TV, toiletries and the added advantage of WIFI. But the best to come was the restaurant, just across that little courtyard. Delightfully decorated and superb food and wine at reasonable prices. Definitely one to return to.

The staff at the reception is always excellent & friendly and i have stayed in Chalet Lyrigue many times over the last two years.Rooms are small but okay and clean. The breakfast is French and the restaurant is very good and i consider it to be one of the best in the Bordeaux region !Wifi is nowadays in the hotel for free and of good qaulity.

I ended up in this hotel by chance located near Bordeaux in small city , Gradignan, I am really happy about this quiet time spent in this hotel. Old design, but really clean, looks like vintage, very nice services, breakfast really Frenchy and the place, sort of garden is beautiful, really very nice. It could be a business hotel, but the size is limited, for family it is cool, I will, for sure, be back in this hotel.

A really pleasant hotel with a friendly welcome.
Unfortunately the restaurant was closed but we had a couple of places recommended, opting for the one called Le Moulin just down the road, a deceptively small looking place a little tent like that was actually quite large inside and ended up being VERY busy. The food was tasty but service was a little slow....

The rooms are medium sized and with basic furnishing. Complimentary wifi was provided. One grouse was the lack of a tea/coffee maker which can be uncomfortable in hte morning, as you have to walk down a long corridor (at least where I was put up) onto the ground floor and then go to the adjacent restaurant which serves breakfast. We had dinner at this restaurant and my colleague liked the oysters very much. The reception is manned till evening only and be sure to take the door opening codes if you intend to stay out late.

My wife and I spent an excellent night at le Chalet Lyrique. Quiet and clean with comfortable twin beds, the hotel is a very good value for the price (75.50 Euros.) However, the rooms are more basic then one would expect for a three star hotel.There is, also, a 6 Euro supplement for dogs.

Breakfast (9 Euros) is served in the adjacent restaurant. While there is a limited choice, both the baguette and croissant we had were wonderful (and very fresh.)

It should be mentioned that all the personnel that we encountered were extremely pleasant.

On the other hand, the restaurant meal itself was very ordinary. However, we were dining that evening with a group of forty or so, as part of a birthday celebration. So perhaps this is not a fair estimate of their overall quality? Nonetheless, the restaurant was recommened and was a disappointment.

The hotel is located in the center of a small town only a few minutes off the circular road at Bordeaux and is easy and convient to find (though the limited free parking behind the hotel is a bit trickier.) There's plenty of free public parking nearby. Altogether, a very positive experience regarding the accomodations.

Room Tip: So far as we could see, all the rooms should be quiet. The hotel is set back, and lies between, two...
