I decided a while back to only write reviews if i'm blown away or very disappointed by a hotel. Unfortunately this was the latter. The Hotel Du Vin is an expensive place to stay. The basics absolutely must be ticked off seamlessly, but are not : We had a shoebox of a room called Laroche, nicely decked out and all,... More

Another fab hotel by HdV. The staff were incredible, especially the reception team who greeted us by name and were always attentive and ready to go the extra mile. The room was spotless and well appointed. The bar is well stocked and has a gorgeous terrace area. It is a little noisy at night and sadly the terrace closes at... More

I have now stayed in Hotel du Vin in three different locations: Winchester, Henley and the latest, this weekend, in Brighton. The service was exceptional with all staff very pleased to help: they really show their enthusiasm and love of their roles. I am always delighted by the interesting and quirky buildings that du Vin manage to source or their... More

Having had not such a great experience on our first visit to this hotel we returned with some trepidation. However we were delighted to be welcomed to a beautiful room that although only a whisper away from the hustle and bustle of The Lanes was like an oasis of calm and tranquility. Dark Star has a slipper bath in the... More

This hotel is beautiful, in a great location and has gorgeous rooms. The restaurant was nice and the food was okay (nothing too special). The reception staff are very professional, the bar staff are good fun and mix up excellent cocktails. The bar itself is a great spot to hang out.

My fiancee and I were taking a trip down south to visit a family member and decided to stay at our favorite hotel for the night. We were fortunate enough to be able to book in to the Cristal suite which we have stayed in previously, The suite is most probably the best available in Brighton, with its 8' by... More

We felt extremely unwelcome during our stay. The receptionist was pompous and arrogant in his responses when we would ask for any information. We decided to order room service and received a £15 hot dog with chips that you could probably get for less than a fiver at the Pier! Ridiculously overpriced for both quality and service. They didn't even... More

Like most of the Hotel du Vin chain, this is an older building adapted for hotel use, on Ship St just off the resort's seafront. The rooms are on different levels around a nice courtyard, and some are quite small, even by HdV standards. Ours did not even have an exterior window (they filled it in to find space for... More

Best night sleep ever! Could not recommend this hotel enough. I stayed here for work after a dinner for charity that was hosted by the hotel. The service was fantastic and our room so beautiful with absolutely everything we needed. No horrible UHT milk but a proper carton of real milk in the mini bar so you could have a... More
