Check in efficient, room smelled of smoke or a strange stale odour, toilet pan black , lack of hands on power sockets, mirror positioned inside wardrobe door no sockets to use hair straighteners or tongs. No power socket by the bed, bed was comfortable. Breakfast poor no available clean tables with settings, no plates for the food, no large spoons, very limited cheese and Ham , all cold counter needed replenishing, lack of tongs for ham and cheese had to use fingers. Lacked any Fruit salad.

In the Mercure standard but a bit noisy (ventilation of bathroom 6th floor)

QUiet good and in the Mercure standard. Staff is really professionnal and sympathic. Only one trouble the noise of the bathroom ventilation in the 6th floor is very high even when the door is closed. It was the same for my collegue at the same floor.

Localisation is great and check-in experience was great. The gentleman at reception was very welcoming and very efficient! Room was a good size and very comfortable. Loved that each room had an author :-) Check out was very friendly too. On improvements side > Breakfast was very disappointing, we arrived at 07:40 (first guests there) and there was no one to great us, so we just started serving ourselves, after 5 min a lady showed up dressed very casually. This is the list of negatives from the breakfast : - no welcome, no forks on the table, knife to cut bread is rubbish, the lady was clearly not bothered about us, she was more concerned about getting items from the breakfast bar and then going to the kitchen (she was clearly having breakfast herself). The thing that bothered us the most was that the phone kept ringing and it's very loud (it really doesn't make for a smooth start of the day) and when more guests arrived, the lady allowed them to be using the breakfast bar WITHOUT a mask. I was very surprised to have this experience at the hotel, we often stay at Accor Hotels, including Mercure and never, never had such an experience at the breakfast.

We have stayed here a number of times and it’s always a nice place to stay. Rooms are excellent, common areas could do with some updating as starting to appear tired

The only thing that we found disappointing was the quality of some of the staff working in the bar and dining areas. There was a party atmosphere with their non-resident friends, with little attention paid to paying guests who seemed to be treated as an inconvenience. Intermittent poor tinkling at the piano, impromptu intermittent dancing in the lounge area and lots of noise.

Dear VICTOR B., We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay at the Hôtel Mercure Bordeaux Lac. we apologize for any inconvenience caused during your stay. we hope to welcome you back to our establishment

Traveler301415 Business - TripAdvisor review

I was there for 9 nights , it could not have been better .Mr Bolaingue the director made sure that my every wish was fulfilled including my special steak tartar made by Christophe the chef who I have to say has a fantastic god quality menu . His kindness and attention are equal to none . The same apply to all the staff , Martin , Valentina ,Hugo, Mathias from the beverages section , Thomas , Antoine , J Michel, Marianne , Morganne from the reception thus without the chambermaids . I definitely recommend this hotel , I went there on business however they made it a holiday . Many thanks to every one of you it will be a dream to come back as I am living in UK .

All the team of Mercure Bordeaux Lac is very thanksful for your comment, and to read that you had a wonderful time. We are looking forward to welcome you again very soon ! Sincerely,

For a business hotel, it's not worth 4 stars. The cleaning is seriously lacking. Outside in and around the pool it is especially filthy. Nobody seems to care. In the rooms there are stains and damages everywhere.

Really good hotel, with good access, car parking and just a few minutes walk to the city tram network.

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

Glyn H Couples - TripAdvisor review

Very comfortable room & bed which was well serviced by room staff. Excellent, helpful & friendly staff throughout, many of whom spoke good English. This hotel's location provides easy access to Bordeaux city center via the well known tram system.

Hello, Thank you for your comment, we hope to see you back soon

A quiet stay

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 break

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.

MariaM2720 Families - TripAdvisor review

We arrived at 9pm with two kids after driving all day and we could not have any food at the hotel as the restaurant was closed on a friday night!! Also, we did not have enough towels in the room for the 4 of us and the shower was dirty

Dear Maria M, Thank you for sharing your opinion on Trip Advisor. It is true, as you can see on our website and as we indicate during check in time, that the restaurant is closed during the week end. But we have 5 good restaurants at walking distance that we can recomand to our guest. Concnerning supplementary towels or any inconvenience you may have, we have our "2424" staff who can give you assistance during your stay. Do not hesitate to contact them. We would be very pleased to welcome you again. Sincerely yours Benjamin REVERDY General Manager

Excellent hotel handy to do business in Bordeaux

Marc F Business - TripAdvisor review

We made a mistake on our booking on internet. The staff was helpfull and found another Mercure hotel for us. Then we came for 2 nights and were satisfied with the large room, modern and very clean. Good buffet breakfast. The restaurant was closed so we had to find another place to eat and many restaurants are closed on Sunday night. This hotel is located closed to the shopping center and the city center as well as the highway.
