Decided to book HdV for my b’day lunch after a couple of great dinners and a wine tasting here. Lucy, who dealt with my enquiry and booking, was fantastic and helpful and always at the end of an email. We used the private dining room which was lovely and created a great atmosphere. Claire, who looked after us on the... More

We drove directly to Poole from Heathrow and had reservations for one night's stay and for dinner. We were to catch the ferry to Guernsey early the next morning. We arrived after a flight from the U.S. and were exhausted on arrival. The staff could not have been nicer. The rooms were well appointed and very comfortable. We had an... More

This cost a bit more than we would normally pay for a night in a hotel - but is was a birthday celebration with a friend and well worth it. The food was superb and had we been wine drinkers I am sure the wine would not have disappointed either as the selection was wide ranging. There is an outdoor... More

I booked the Dinner Bed and breakfast package for my Girlfriends birthday treat. We arrived early on Saturday lunchtime. Luckily managed to get into the hotel's own car park. Checking in was efficient and friendly. Lots of information provided about local sights and where to go. Room wasn't ready, but luggage was taken and we were told it would be... More

The occasion was the celebration of a close friend's 60th birthday, with lunch at the Hotel Du Vin for twenty-plus family and friends. Due to the number of people in our party, a separate room was provided - which would appear to have contributed to the overall experience. Subsequently told we should have been assigned four staff, we ended up... More

Lovely setting in the old part of town, but a stones throw from the quay. Staff were friendly and helpful from our arrival and throughout our weekend stay. Room as always at HDV was beautifully designed with a seaside feel, was clean and extremely comfortable. Dining and bar areas also create a great atmosphere, the cocktails were a particular highlight... More

It is, on the outside at least, an imposing building. A converted late Georgian vicarage, the Hotel du Vin Poole holds much promise. But it is desperately in need of a facelift. My room, I was more than a little surprised to find, had a bathroom which was barely habitable. Peeling, damp stained and flaking paintwork, with a dank, fusty... More

Welcome revisit, lovely room (Willi). Off site Parking conundrum is unwelcome pain (wet weather 10 mins walk)....cos no "arrangement" currently with adjacent most convenient commercial facility. Front of house British staff bright, friendly, helpful and informative. However, breakfast "tea" request linguistically challenged server interpreted as "coffee" suggesting "ea" phonetic uncertainty. Bizarrely, bar billed bottle of "Champagne" erroneously added to room... More

Dear BobTFleet, Thank you for your feedback and please accept my apologies for the champagne appearing on your bill. Between the bar, bistro and reception we issue a few hundred bills a week and this one went astray.

Not easy to find. On site parking is very limited and cramped. Two pay car parks a walkaway. £10 for overnight parking whether on hotel premises or others (need to validate ticket). Hotel is a merger of a couple of buildings so its a bit higgledy pickledy. Entrance is nice, verging on grand. Rooms are all over the place. We... More

Our building is over 250 years old and has some quirky corridors and rooms, which also affects the parking, which is very limited and with 8 spaces on site, always full.

Love this hotel brand and am making it a mission with my wife to visit every hotel they have. The room was superb as was the rest of the hotel. The food was fantastic however there is very little in the wine list at a sensible level that we wanted to drink. Nothing in the claret's under £45..
