This is my favourite hotel in Brighton and I've stayed here numerous times and always loved it - it has a warm, welcoming, luxurious vibe. But the team absolutely surpassed themselves when we held our wedding here at the end of May 2015. The whole experience was incredible and all of our guests raved about the beautiful facilities, the fantastic... More

I booked hotel du vin recently for our wedding night, we stayed in the Chrystal suite which was amazing but far too pricey (over £400). A few days before our wedding hotel du vin called to let me know there would be a £15 charge as I had requested rose petals on the bed. I was really disappointed that even... More

My husband and I have had some bad luck with finding a luxury hotel in Brighton, so I was absolutely giddy when we finally booked the Hotel du Vin. Located close to the water, the hotel oozes charm. The staff were incredibly friendly, and the hotel provided us with the classy stay we had been looking for. We booked a... More

Brighton has that "shabby chic" look bordering on just shabby and the HdV sits well in this. To be fair the common spaces are pretty smart for Brighton and the courtyard is a nice space and is the bar area. The deluxe rooms were finished in the normal "toapy" pretty small and the bed too short for me. The "storm... More

Precious Gem on Brighton Esplanade. The great atmosphere and the amazing staff will delivery a quirky experience made of luxury, history, delicious food and worldwide wine by the sea. Situated in a strategic position, close to the pier and the lanes. Everything is in a easy walkable distance. What else would you need for a special weekend?

Hotel is quite ok but too expensive. For 190 pounds you expect something more. The room was small but very well equipped. The bathroom was ok but needs a renovation (as the room itself). No elevator in the hotel. The WiFi was ok, the breakfast was good. Nice thing was that they cooked the food to order, unfortunately it took... More

Brighton for one night and boy, the hotels were full on the 27th June. Du vin was £355.00 for one night including breakfast. Not what we normally pay but rooms disappeared off the horizon pretty quickly. We were staying in the room named Pendold, next to the 1st floor bar. Not the best location for the money. Staff were very... More

Just want to say how brilliant the team were in arranging and managing my party on 6th June 2015. Pauline and her team did a sterling job and especially the lady who looked after us on the evening, nothing was too much trouble. Would highly recommend anyone wishing to have a special celebration to have it held here. Excellent! Caroline,... More

Spent a lovely weekend in the Hotel Du Vin at the start of June 2015. Upon arrival we found the reception staff to be helpful and friendly. They showed us around the public areas of the hotel, and then took us up to our room. Our room - a superior double - was well appointed - massive bathroom, with roll-top... More

The room was comfortable and well appointed but on the small side. However, the service while pleasant and willing was incompetent and ineffective. We waited in the bar for over 20 minutes before our order for tea was taken and then waited another 30 minutes for the bill which failed to arrive. I think I had to order each component... More
