Our visit to Hotel Du Vin in York was a last minute decision, booked on the day of arrival.
We had previously stayed at Hotel Du Vin in Harrogate so had some degree of confidence in the brand but it's always slightly unnerving arriving at a previously unvisited Check In with that initial uncertainty as to what lies ahead. All apprehensions were quickly allayed. The lady on Reception was fantastic - friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable. Our room was great (due to a minor hiccup we had to change rooms but this was organised with a smile and without further ado despite the hotel being almost full). As ours was a fleeting visit there was little chance to enjoy the bar and restaurants - but all areas looked comfortable, inviting and uber clean (we saw one of the team literally scrubbing the floor). Breakfast was very enjoyable - we opted for the full English but feeling a pang of guilt I requested to trade the black pudding for the healthy option carrot and ginger sausage. Good choice! All in all, Hotel Du Vin is not a stand alone owner-operated offering - but despite being part of a larger group and a medium sized hotel, it still manages to encapsulate many of the features that we find so compelling in smaller boutique hotels. On our next visit to York we would have no doubts whatsoever as to our first choice of accommodation. Definitely Hotel Du Vin!
