We were a peculiar party - three doubles for three single women, including one in her late 80s who was treating the other two. Two sets of somewhat odd requirements, but HdV met the lot really. Loved the rooms friend and I had - wonderful monsoon shower and giant bath, a little balcony (mainly intended for smokers I suspect as it's on the north side of the hotel), not unreasonably priced mini-bar. Had dinner one night - service and food spot on, and drinks both - extensive wine/drinks list could have kept us amused for many an evening.
Helpful staff pleased the octogenarian especially. She was so taken with hotel/food/service that she thought we could look for HdVs for our future annual weekends away. Dead right - we had already come to that conclusion. Lively enough for us, peaceful enough for her; we liked quirky, she liked soft bed; bar delighted us, room service kept her very happy.
Only mild gripes...Coffee at breakfast really awful: tasted like stewed percolated disguised in a cafetiere, but the latte was great. No radio in rooms - it should be easy to provide this on telly shouldn't it?
Friend and I weren't paying, which obviously rather colours our views. For a treat, it was pretty much divine.
- 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
