Lovely hotel, room spacious and well appointed, staff very helpful and friendly. But the designation 'luxury hotel' is pushing it a bit, and it is over priced. No matter how nice the room, I do not expect in a luxury hotel to be disturbed by the sound of the occupants of the room next door moving around and talking. If... More

Excellent food, good presentation and efficient service for lunch. Overall a very pleasant occasion but the service in the Bar area needs to improve ahd the hotel generally needs to attend more to the physical comfort of their patrons. It was a cold, wet day yet the Bar area fire had not been lit and the room was cold -... More

Nice place. Pretty quaint house in keeping with Winchester's decor and we had a starter of garlic prawns and the figs. My prawns were good but there wasn't a lot to the figs although they were good. I got the chateaubriand and wine deal thing for £50 which came with fries and a side. It was pretty good and filled... More

This is a review of a dinner I had with a group of five in the bistro. I have been to the Hotel du Vin several times over a number of years and it had a great reputation about 15 years ago.

My husband and I returned last week from our annual short break which we take for his birthday. As owners of two small companies, we go away as co-directors, relax, unwind and at some point find we quite like each other. I suppose you could say we are HdV regulars, we love the brand, it is instantly recognisable where ever... More

Absolutely fantastic! There were 6 adults and two children in our party. We were very well looked after from start to finish. A wonderful table adjacent to the buffet, delicious food and attentive, efficient service. Champagne and birthday cake in the bar after our meal..Couldn't have been better. The Sunday lunch is amazing value for money. A truly memorable birthday... More

A warning for the unaware: Do not believe a word of any glowing report on this doomed hotel. Lousy, almost inedible food, lazy untrained staff with no knowledge of the wine list or how food is prepared, a messy disorder to the restaurant, a bar in which no-one wants to serve. And, yes, like another contributor we too sat for... More

Once upon a time this Bistro was turning out truly excellent food created by skilled professionals and served by well trained staff. How things have changed since the Hotel du Vin chain has been sold on twice since it was founded in 1994. I took the family there yesterday for my wife's birthday and although we had a great time,...

We were sent an email offering 3 Autumn courses for £19.95 per person and a free 500ml carafe of wine. The menu sounded interesting and we booked for a Wednesday evening. The historic dining room is a good place to be and the staff were welcoming. My wife enjoyed her smoked mackerel and heritage beetroot starter. I chose meatball ragout... More
