Bordeaux with a dog – What is the best accommodation with a dog in Bordeaux?
More and more structures (hotels, campsites, apartments, palaces, unusual accommodations) now receive dogs. Faced with this ever-increasing offer, I had to prioritise certain selection criteria to satisfy my dog’s specific requirements.
Because yes it is very great that a majority of hotels, especially in Bordeaux, now accept dogs, but under what conditions? Many hotels admit dogs but are not at all adapted to pets and are not adapted to… It is often to attract guests that many hotels accept dogs, so be suspicious before making a reservation.
Of course, one of the first criteria to select a dog friendly hotel in Bordeaux will be to have enough space in the room and ideally a small garden. This is what I recommend as a priority selection in your research.
If your search was not successful and/or the hotels answering these criteria were all full, check that there are at least green spaces nearby for your dog’s needs but also for his walks.
This is what I looked for first and foremost while keeping my requests and conditions for:
- Good location for tourism;
- Reasonable price.
This is my selection of the 2 best dog friendly hotels in Bordeaux: 1 dog friendly hotel in the centre of Bordeaux and 1 dog friendly hotel at the Lake of Bordeaux.
Best hotel in the center of Bordeaux accepting dogs
Here is the hotel I recommend for a tourist vacation in the center of Bordeaux: L’Escapade Bordelaise, côté jardin
As it is impossible to find a hotel with a garden that can well accomodate dogs in the very centre of Bordeaux, I suggest you a beautiful guest house ideally located in the centre of Bordeaux and right next to the Bordeaux public garden.
This way, you can enjoy all the advantages of being located in the centre of Bordeaux while having the facilities to take your dog out to do his needs or to go for a nice walk with him. Indeed, by having the public garden just outside the hotel, your stay in the heart of Bordeaux will also be perfect for your doggie!
In addition, you will enjoy a very warm welcome, spacious, comfortable rooms and delicious breakfasts!
Another and not least advantage: its excellent price-quality ratio.
Best hotel at the Lake of Bordeaux accepting dogs
For those who want to spend more than one or two days in Bordeaux, the ideal is to stay near the Lake of Bordeaux. This is the best hotel I recommend for a stay with your dog right next to the lake: Mercure Bordeaux Lac.
Indeed, choosing this location is perfect for the comfort of your dog:
- large bedrooms, green spaces;
- near the lake to take it out for a walk and to have it bathed….
In addition, this hotel is also perfect for a tourist vacation because line C of the tramway is only 5 minutes walk away and will allow you to reach Bordeaux city centre very quickly. You should know also that it is also very close to the casino of Bordeaux (2 minutes by foot).
Finally, this hotel is perfect for a relaxing holiday with your dog:
- Garden with trees;
- Outdoor swimming pool;
- Restaurant serving traditional French cuisine and a wide choice of wines;
- Beach of the Lake of Bordeaux;
- Free parking in front of the hotel.
Bordeaux with a dog – Planning formalities and documents
Wherever you travel with your dog in France, you should check in advance that he has a microchip and that his medical certificate is up to date with his vaccinations. Of course, his health certificate will have to follow your dog everywhere, especially if you are doing on a road trip in France….
And for those who are travelling by flight with their dog, it will also be necessary to plan other procedures (European passport, airline agreements…). For this reason, it is strongly recommended to contact and question the airline directly well in advance.
