I chose Hotel du Vin because I had previously stayed in the hotel a few years ago when it was under the previous management, and wanted to see what the Hotel du Vin chain have done to improve it. Unfortunately the answer was, 'not much.' The hotel is slightly tricky to approach by road as it is not well signposted...

Went as part of Sunday night stay, dinner and breakfast package and what great value. Our second visit as we enjoyed it so much before. Can't fault the service, we had a problem with our air con in our room and without hesitation they moved us, in fact upgraded us! Room was amazing. Love the outdoor pool. Food great too...

Being too weary to drive home we stayed here, a walk in and book moment. Young lady on reception was excellent, very helpful and courteous and fixed me a great room overlooking the lovely garden. Fantastic old building, originally the eye infirmary and was a typical hospital type layout but don't be put off as it has charm, the floors...

My partner and I visited the hotel in March for a spa day (long overdue!). I appreciate the management may not want their staff to be behind a desk, to get up and greet their guests but I was a bit taken aback when I saw the reception area. Two tables put together did not make a good first impression....

.... but it was fantastic value for money for the whole package! A group of friends visited yesterday, having got the voucher via Travelzoo. We had a leisurely drink on the patio in the beautiful, sunny and quiet gardens, then went to the pool. This is as described - a section outside (where we enjoyed the sun) and a swim-into...

First impression on arriving- still like a hospital in the reception and corridors. Our room was pretty small, and most things didn't work, especially the bath plumbing. We were moved to an even smaller room which was clearly a single in which a double bed had been squeezed. Wardrobe was for one person. Restaurant is lovely and modern (being an...

The standards at the du vin were very good. Unfortunately the only reason I booked was for the gym and this was very poor. One running machine one bike and a multi gym which wasn't very easy to operate

Thank you so much for your feedback and kind words. The Gym is small and nice luxury when away from home. We will definitely look at the operating instructions and review the equipment at the next refurbishment stage. We hope that you will consider staying with us again. Please feel free to contact me directly if you have further suggestion...

It's expensive at £200 a night and have stayed in better Hotels for less, but it is what it is. Dinner for 4 at £200 was steep, but the food and service was good, even if the restaurant feels like a hotel dinning room and not a Bistro. The room was excellent with a large king size bed and a...

This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel. Service was just as good as last time. Josh on reception needs a special mention he did all he could to make our stay enjoyable.
