Having stayed at other du vins the standards you expect were there, fine food, well presented rooms good service, however. There are a few strategic issues with this du vin that need some attention by senior management. Firstly, car parking, the only option is a £16 per night ncp, yes you get 20% discount but its still steep, I cant remember the last high class hotel I stayed at without a car park, even yorks du vin had one albeit at £10 per night. Just bear this in mind because unloading you car with a beady eye out for a traffic warden is not the best start to a luxury break.
my wife and I stayed in the Balfour room, nice but it lacked the kind of character you normally get in Boutique hotels, This room was clearly produced in amongst the alterations of the original building, needs looking at, perhaps some themed books or a "feature" that personalised the room from others, one that reminded you of the opulence of the brand, I felt as though this room was a marriot room with different colours, nothing special.
We did have a couple of minor issues with the maid service, on our middle day it had not been cleaned by 3.30pm, that said we got some free drinks in the bar which was more than fair.Staff were friendly if not a little unimaginative without referral to the manager, but hey ho.
i would stay again but the prices even in a promotion would make me think twice, if the bathroom was a little less premier inn I would not object.
So come on Du Vin, I know you can do a lot better so us the magic you show elsewhere, I know you want to.
