Stayed here on business just before Xmas. I have stayed at the Hotel due Vin in Bristol a number of times and found it to be excellent. This however felt different somehow. Not so friendly and a bit dark and dingy, especially the bar with purple walls, dark wood and low intensity lighting. It was all a bit depressing. Service...

I took my partner for dinner in the Bistro for her birthday last week. The hotel is beautiful on the inside, the bar is very lovely with comfortable seating and a welcoming fire in the middle of the room. The staff were fantastic. They took our drinks order and we ordered our dinner before we sat down in the restaurant....

Lunch with friends who recommended the restaurant, service a little slow and took 45 minutes to receive our tomato soup starter. Luke warm and needed seasoning however, the second course was a visit to the buffet which was delightful. A full spread of fish, meat, salad and sauces, my favourite being the hand carved salmon. We all had the Aberdeen...

To start I had the Beef carpaccio with a Scotch egg on top followed by the Mutton which was superb. You know what you're going to get at the Hotel du Vin, great food, excellent service and...

Purely by coincidence my husband and I (both 31) ended up in a Hotel Du Vin again for NYE this year (having stayed in the Winchester branch last year). This time we stayed the night but had our own private celebration plans so I cannot comment on the Tunbridge Wells NYE dinner and dance package. We had the most lovely...

Recently stayed at Hotel du Vin for 10 days on a trip to UK. Was impressed by efficient and friendly service from Reception, to Bar & Restaurant to Housekeeping, I especially enjoyed a very good wine list and the fact that, unlike many places, they actually had Royal HungarianTokai in the Bar. I stayed in Cottage Annex which suited me...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel du Vin Tunbridge Wells is set in one of the town's architectural landmarks, a Grade II-listed sandstone mansion built as a private residence in 1762. We have retained its authentic detail carefully, adding our unique touch to the 34 bedrooms with antiques and memorabilia. Guests can enjoy a game of boules, dining on the garden terrace with its wonderful views across Calverley Park, or a wander through the hotel's very own vineyard. BEDROOMS: Housed within this impressive building are 34 timelessly styled bedrooms and stunning suites, all featuring luxurious handsprung mattresses, fine Egyptian linen, deep baths and powerful drench showers, plasma TVs, DVDs and air conditioning. BISTRO: Open all week, and under the tutelage of head chef Daniel McGarey, Bistro du Vin is at the heart of our hotel, a classic, French styled, elegant and informal setting for lunch, dinner, to meet, celebrate or simply pass the time. Dine on the finest produce the Kent has to offer from local heroes such as herbs and seasonal vegetables from local nursery chef's herbs, meat from Woodlands Farm and fish from Chapman's of Sevenoaks. These are only a handful of the suppliers included within our homegrown & local philosophy. ... more   less
