Pleasant hotel and restaurant with busy bar and friendly atmosphere. Parking can be a little challenging as it is tight and limited, but there is a good atmosphere and the rooms have an individual and personal style. Recommended.

We spent a great night here for our 20th wedding anniversary. The (paid for) upgrade from a Superior Room to a Principal Room, Duval Leroy overlooking the park at the back of the hotel, meant we had a very large and comfortable room with a deluxe sized bathroom (which is one of the reasons for staying at an HdV after...

I checked in without doing any research for this stay last minute. Venue, room and food were 5 stars. Way beyond my expectations. I was particularly impressed with the attitude and service from all staff, especially Ella on reception. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay and wouldn't hesitate rebooking. :)

Really not that great. Given the Hotel du Vin chain is pretty good and I've had good food and stays elsewhere, this one is surprisingly average at best. Have had 2 meals, both of which were "ok" but pricy. The bar is dark and needs redecorating and the drink prices rather silly. So, better than some, not as good as... More

Beautiful venu, amazing food BUT just a shame some of the staff are incapable of doing their jobs!! We had want was supposed to be the best day of our life there (Wedding). Although the staff insured the day started with nothing but stress. My only advice DO NOT have your wedding there!!!! From one unhappy bride and groom 😞

Dear Simon, I am absolutely appalled by your review of the Hotel regarding your wedding. You mentioned the staff here 'insured nothing but stress when the day started'. There was one major issue which was check in and can I just reiterate as stated on your contract: Guest check-in is guaranteed from 3pm. Your guests arrived from 10am expecting rooms... More

Me and my husband booked to go for dinner on Saturday night. We've been a few times to various HDV and always had a decent experience. We were told over the phone that the only available time was 6:30pm, which was fine if a little early. The building itself is very charming, and we were seated at a good corner... More

A Gorgeous manor in a quaint town. The Standard room was small but decorated in style, with a gorgeous bathroom. All amenities were provided with thoughtfulness (tea/Coffee-Nespresso/toiletries/bathrobess and slippers/mini-bar/free wi-fi/freeview tv). The hotel was very busy with lots of different parties booked in for the evening and morning (Saturday and Sunday) which meant the restaurant was booked up for the... More

I took my partner here after getting together again after a 'break' and we found the whole experience fantastic. This Georgian Mansion is in the centre of Tunbridge Wells and yet, when sitting in the lovely garden to the rear, you could be anywhere.From the moment we arrived we were greeted with happy yet professional staff who even let us...
