This is place is, as advertised, quite posh. The staff was friendly and helped with anything we needed, even letting us store our rental bikes in the garage over night. We stayed in the Taylor Port room- nice. The bathroom is enormous with a walk in shower that can easily accommodate 4 people if needed =) Would I stay here... More

We booked a stay here to coincide with the England cricket match in Bristol...the cricket was a wash out but the HDV cheered us up! We stayed for two nights and utilised the Sunday night special offer (on Bank Holiday Monday) which included dinner... The food was good, as were the rooms that we had (Chapel Down and Pomeroy)...however, it... More

My son and I were lucky enough to be able to stay at the Hotel du Vin together and absolutely loved it! The only negatives were that the extra bed they put into the room wasn't particularly comfortable for a lanky 16yr old and made the room quite cosy, and the Digi box kept changing its own channels! However we... More

I've been here a few times and it's always a great experience . The room was beautiful and spacious , bathroom was huge . Also the bar and restaurant are great . We had a few cocktails that were made perfectly and the parfait and the mussels in the restaurant went down a treat .

We came for a treat - a birthday meal for my partner. The scallops starter for both; superb. The bouillabaisse was rich, spicy and subtle. The boeuf bourguignon also balanced and lovely. Service from both waiter and semmillion attentive. We had a lovely meal in fact. Loses stars because we were ambushed with the 20% VAT hike in the final... More

My wife and I stayed overnight at this hotel. The hotel and staff were a template of what hotels should be like, everything was perfect. If you have a special occasion, like a wedding anniversary, this would be an ideal place to celebrate. The downside is that it is very expensive and a bit lavish to use just as an... More

We stayed for 1 night in a standard room and were very surprised by the size and quality of the room and the bathroom, which had a roll top bath and a huge walk-in shower. All the staff were friendly and efficient, making you feel very welcome. The food and wine were, if a little expensive, generally of a good... More

We live in Bath and wanted something special for a night away on our anniversary. We stayed in the Harvey's loft room with a private balcony, and had a bottle of bubbly on ice waiting for us. Beautiful room, and all the staff were friendly, attentive and charming. Bistro food was excellent. Parking outside the hotel is limited but an... More

This was the first weekend away my wife and I have had for ages!, although I had requested various upgrades, and they were unable to offer, the room we were given was superb! The serve was excellent.
