An overnight stay at the Hotel du Vin, York, booked at 24 hours notice after a week in the N Yorks Moors, provided some much needed luxury and comfort. We had La Grande Dame - a suite room in the attic. Quiet, everything you could need, 8' bed, twin rain showers + a roll top bath - but NO plug near the mirror to use the hairdyer. The design of the room - colour scheme, decor, furnishings - was excellent and a great choice.
Dinner in the Bistro was very good. Plenty of choice, sensible sized portions and first class, friendly service.
The only niggle was the £10 car parking charge, which was swiftly taken off when I pointed to the price of the suite, and said I did not think at the rack rate it was appropriate to charge for parking.
All in all, would go back there at any time to Hotel du Vin. York is a beautiful city and it was a pleasure to re-discover it after many years.
