As my review says, this was our first stay at a Hotel Du Vin so had reasonably high expectations. The room was very nice, we were on the second floor in a deluxe double. Bathroom was great although I couldn't help feeling the toilets needed replacing and something a tad more modern brought in. Didn't notice any biscuits or free... More

Reception is a bit dark, and the steps at the front of the entrance a bit odd, but then I'm done with negative comments. An amazingly warm team, knowledgeable and welcoming. Bistro does exactly what it says on the tin. IMHO my kidneys were too devilled, but that was made up for by excellent Moules and a solid rib eye... More

Stopped at the Hotel Du Vin in Birmingham last night and sadly there has been a real downwards spiral in service, it was a very disappointing experience ranging from rooms not ready, luggage lost and a very bizarre experience in the restaurant. Big tip do not order the choucroute this is a traditional meal that does not reflect the description... More

Stayed here for one night as we were attending an evening Wedding reception. I thought the reception area was a bit dark, but the staff were friendly and helpful. It was a bit confusing not having room numbers, they had names instead. There was no guidance on the corridor walls to show which direction you had to go in to... More

I'm a fan of the Hotel du Vin chain and this as a good experience. Surprised to see references below to poor staff attitudes as everyone I met, from reception to bistro to bar, was friendly and helpful - in fact in the bistro almost overwhelmingly so - and the customer care first class. The meal in the bistro was... More

I stayed here for three days and found the hotel very comfortable, the room a good size, clean and well furnished, breakfast was good and the staff friendly. There was nothing negative to say at all and I will stay there again when next in Birmingham.

Reception was dark & cold (one female staff member still had her coat on) but check in was straight forward enough. Rejected the first room as sun was shining through window which drew our attention to the scaffolding outside the window and the layer of dust on the headboard. Second room was smaller but cosier :) Good service in the... More

We stayed as a special treat for my husbands birthday. We are brummies and have stayed at many of the city centre hotels but up until now not HdV. Well, it certainly impressed us and would definitely look to stay again in the future. All the staff we had dealings were great! Polite, chatty, knowledgable... In particular, i'd like to... More

I attended a networking event at hotel du vin birmingham that a colleague of mine had organized 2 weeks ago, i was dissappointed with the LAGGING service and there was a inadequate supply of staff. The staff that were noticeable during the event lacked charm, enthusiasm, hospitality skills and energy. The meetings and events manger was also no help he... More

The lady who checked us in was lovely and even let me know if I parked right outside I wouldn't have to pay for parking the following day (I was lucky, my colleagues wernt) which was a nice... More
