Room 308 Where we stayed was Perched on the roof, lots of glass, skylights above the bed. Small balcony, very Very minimal cupboard space. Location is a 5min walk from pedestrianized parts of town. Decent breakfast. Beware of rooms adjacent to the bar with thin walls!

my wife & I decided to re-visit the Hotel du Vin brand, after many happy trips some years ago. We arrived at the Exeter location, and checked in. the room was small but clean, the bathroom was a tight fit, with shampoos, etc. fixed to the wall, but the air-conditioning did not seem to be working; it was hot *&...

From the drink in the bar, to a lovely comfy room with excellent bathroom, to good spread at breakfast - this Hotel Du Vin lived up to its usual reputation for a one night stay in Exeter. Ground floor room faced the entrance drive and as the windows aren't frosted, be sure to shut the curtains *before* the bath...

Had a lovely overnight stay, and a great swim with my daughter in law. My upgraded superior room wasn't bad, no carpet and was ok, breakfast was absolutely great, and all the staff were amazing, had a relaxed time, would definitely come back. Thank you

Stayed here for four nights recently. First three were in a superior double, the last night in a deluxe double.....much better. The rooms are small but beautifully decorated and clever use of space. Lovely soft comfortable beds and extremely quiet despite being near a fairly main road. The bistro was about half full for dinner service, and I feel we... More

Stayed here for 1 night during July. The room was great and the bed was so comfortable. The facilities were also good, pool, spa etc. Two things let it down for me. The showers in the room and by the pool were terrible, very little pressure. Breakfast was also a let down. The sausages were really gristly with large, hard,... More

I stayed for two nights at the Hotel du Vin. I had stayed previously when it was the Barcelona Hotel, which was a very enjoyable stay. The hotel looks great, the location is good and it was lovely to eat breakfast and dinner outside overlooking a lovely green space. I stayed in a superior room which was nicely designed with...

We booked a standard double and standard single for one night to attend our daughter's graduation. I spoke with a very nice young man on reception the day before our arrival and asked if they could possibly have one room ready for us when we arrived before normal check in at 3pm. It was great that they managed this so... More

We booked this hotel as a halfway stop off on the way to Cornwall and we were a little hesitant as we had never taken our dog to a hotel before. We need not have worried as the staff at the hotel were so welcoming. We got lucky with a parking spot, check in was easy and efficient. Rooms were... More

After my visit to Hotel Du vin in Harrogate in which I had an amazing lunch, I booked to have Sunday Lunch in Exeter to celebrate a friend birthday. It was completely different story. Food was very poor quality. Staff even worse. Please do not hurry there. Very poor standard well below the average of other cities in England.

Dear Mariabete, I was very disappointed to hear of your recent Sunday Lunch at Hotel du Vin Exeter. I can assure you that our usual standard are much higher than the one you experienced on this occasion. Our Sunday Lunch is a great 4 course meal offering, which include a plentiful French market table with Seafood, Crustacea, Charcuterie, Patés, Rillette... More
