I've been going to Hotels du Vin since their first establishement in Winchester and have visited many others. This is not up to their usual standard, indeed, the four star listing is suspect; I don't know any hotel with such small standard rooms could come under this rating. The rooms (and there was more than one in our family group)... More

What was The Magdalen Chapter is now Hotel du Vin, so we were told that they're in the process of transformation. The junior suite we had was a triumph of style over practicality - an unnecessarily too -intelligent lighting system that won’t let you just turn a single light on and off, a lack of mirrors in well-lit areas of...

We attended this restaurant with a group of 6 for a birthday celebration, so so so disappointed at the service! We were left waiting for almost 30 minutes just for drinks which then came back wrong and were never put right. we then ordered starters and had to ask for bread. when the bread came there was 4 pieces for...

This is somewhat of a different Hotel Du Vin and is more like a conventional hotel, not as quirky as the many others I have stayed in, plus no walk in showers which I love!! However, on a recent stay there I did find the bar/lounge and outside area very pleasant, the restaurant area is also very nice. I enjoyed... More

I stayed here the weekend just past with my husband in a studio room, the highest room category. We had been offered a preferential rate and some added extra’s after a disappointing stay a few months ago, and decided to make the most of this and book the best room. Our room had fantastic views over Exeter, was spacious with... More

Lunchtime business meeting. An excellent house red; a good main course, but not one of such quality that helps me remember what it was; superb Crème brûlée for dessert (no doubt the best I have eaten), and nice coffee to round off a very nice meal. A very pleasant and attentive staff. I would describe this is fine dining, at... More

Was surprised to see the Magdelen Chapter had been taken over by Hotel Du Vin. Stayed here on 2 separate occasions. Although they seem to be training up a lot of new staff they are all polite, friendly, and seem to be supported by a senior member of staff! The rooms are gorgeous! My favourite feature are the speakers in... More

Booked a room at the Hotel du Vin in Exeter via Booking.com as it looked just the ticket having flown down in a very expensive private aircraft. On arrival my friends dropped me off in the morning and we asked if we were able to leave their car in the car park and the hotel allowed us to. I asked... More

I note that some recent reviews have been negative, but my experience was very positive. I was given a warm and friendly welcome on arrival. I then took a friend for tea in the bar and we agreed that this was one of the best pots of tea we had ever had in very relaxing surroundings. The bed in my... More
