I recently held my wedding at hotel du vin winchester...and loved every second of it. All the staff went out of their way to make my husband and i feel very special and important. From day one the new events manger (who took over managing our day a month before it took place) made us feel relaxed and confident that... More

We had our wedding at HDV in September and the whole day was only saved by the two junior members of staff who worked very hard. The event manager and general manager made all the right noises in the lead up to the wedding but on the day were a huge let down. The room where the service was to... More

I love the Hotel du Vin in Winchester - I've been to a few of the others in the chain and didn't like them as much. I think this is the original one. My family often go here for special meals, and the food and wine are always fantastic, although it's very expensive. We're stayed overnight a couple of times... More

Lovely building, pleasant rooms. Breakfast expensive, cooked breakfast poor quality, someone in the kitchen is heavy handed with the salt. Only ate dinner one evening during our stay. Food was good, but again expensive. Waiting staff pleasant, but not very friendly. More senior waiting staff cold. Would stay again as it is in such a good position in the city,... More

We had a great stay. The hotel staff were attentive (although the breakfast service could have been better), We stayed in the cottage which was quiet and secluded. The bed was too hard for me, but otherwise the room was great. A good selection of teas and a good coffee maker, TV etc. Cosmetics were excellent. I can not understand... More

Like the last reviewer I also had high expectations of the Winchester Du Vin. Yes the location is perfect, a minute walk will take you straight to the main shopping centre, However the hotel itself is best described as dated_yes, it was built a long time ago!, but it certainly could benefit from a bit of care and attention. I... More

This was my first 'Du Vin experience', and I had high expectations. As other people have said, the location, bang in the centre of Winchester, is unbeatable, and most things about this hotel were fantastic: notably, the outdoor patio and garden (plus Moroccan-style semi-open structure, with blankets for cooler days) for al fresco dining/drinking; the ambience; and the natural beauty...

Had a family reunion in a private room, 22 people in all including two children, no choice menu, called in to dine and sat for 3/4 hour waiting for starters, main course very small although very tasty, as was the dessert of creme caramel with coffee to follow, no cheese offered. With no draft beer on tap, a pint of... More

Booked a sunday stay (where you pay £60 for the room as long as you spend £75 in the Bistro on food and wine), this worked out really well. Had a very nice room and the meal was lovely. The staff at the hotel couldn't do enough to help and made us feel most welcome. This hotel also has a... More

Although the location of the hotel is very convenient, our room was overlooking the road and therefore there was a lot of traffic noise. There was also noise from the room above, guests passing outside the room and the cleaner who decided to hoover outside the room at 8am! Although a lot of effort is clearly put into fixtures and...
