We stayed at Du Vin on the recommendation of a friend. We loved the location, just off the Brighton sea front and at the edge of The Lanes. The staff were very friendly, and we very quite impressed with the very large lobby bar and restaurant. We did not eat at the restaurant as it was fully booked on our arrival. It appears that many locals eat there so if you're planning to stay we would recommend you book a table ahead so you have the option. We wound up eating at the Indian restaurant across the street that was very nice and which we would recommend.
The room was "OK" - clean and well appointed, but a bit boring. The ensuite bath and shower, however, were very nice. Note: there is no lift, so you must be able to carry your own luggage up the stairs. The parking arrangement is at a public garage about a ten minute walk that seems like twenty when it's raining. This hotel's rating would definitely go up if they added valet parking!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Hotel du Vin Brighton is situated in the Lanes conservation area, a pebbles' throw from the seafront. Its 49 bedrooms are housed in a collection of eccentric Gothic revival and mock Tudor buildings erected, appropriately by a wine merchant on the site of an old inn. Among many interesting features are a heavily carved staircase and bizarre gargoyles, while the original double-height hall now houses the wine bar and Laroche tasting room. The perfect venue for a picturesque wedding or party is the impressively large and airy Dome room. For the best tankered of local ale, Pub du Vin is one of Brighton city center's treasures with its classic pub dining. Out with the Brighton hotel is the wonder and inspiring town itself, with quaint streets dotted with fabulous shops, and of course the famous pier and promenade. ... more less
