We have stayed here several times before and loved it. I think we have always had a superior room before and last time we were upgraded to a deluxe so have always had huge rooms and space.

This time I booked a standard room with king sized bed and it was a tiny pokey little room (Echinata something like that) 3rd floor back with attic ceiling over the bed which made it very hard to get in and out of the right side of the bed (and I am only 5'5") had to crawl in and out. So stupid as they have put their standard bedside table on the left side which takes up so much room, there is none on the right side and no lamp. With just a little thought they could provide a narrower table on the left side to enable the bed to move over a little so that the right side would have space for a table and a lamp.... no genius required. We are beginning to realise just how formulaic the chain is, same food same furniture even if it doesn't fit! Usual good bathroom, huge and actually too big for this room - would be better to give over some of the space to the room.

I also would have thought it was good business practice to see who is a return visitor and give them a decent room!

Has really put us off especially as we had just visited the branch in Winchester which was very disappointing, still like the Mal Maison in Leeds though.

My Husband and I are regular guests at Hotel Du Vin Bristol and absolutely adore the understated luxury of this boutique hotel. Totally understated, from the outside you could drive past and not even realise it is there. Walk in off the street and you find yourself in a tree adorned courtyard totally hidden away from the hustle and bustle of the city streets. Very french, very Du Vin. Having stayed at a number of the hotels in the Du Vin portfolio of properties (Harrogate, Brighton and Edinburgh), Bristol is by far our favourite. The hotel is a sympathetically restored building, originally a sugar refinery and the architects have clearly retained its most noble features with bedrooms and suites that are reminiscent of New York loft apartments complete with exposed brick and sturdy iron pillars in rooms that are minimalistic in their decor . We always choose to stay in Beringer (rooms are named after wines), one of the luxury range of rooms - and well worth the additional cost. Egyptian cotton linen bedding, a waterfall shower, a huge freestanding roll top bath and a state of the art coffee maker adorn the room to name just a few of the fine detail that Hotel Du Vin afford their guests. Add to this the vast list of fine wines stocked at the bar and all in all you might now understand why we choose to return again and again. Oh, and as a last word it is walking distance into the city centre attractions that Bristol holds.

Room Tip: If you have stayed at other hotels in the Hotel Du Vin chain they welcome return visitors and are often willing to negotiate room prices.

The hotel lived up to its reputation. From the welcome (nice friendly staff) to check out. The hotel room (a large room - one up from standard room) was beautifully decorated with a fabulous large bath and monsoon shower. The bed was comfortable and had great feather pillows that you sink into. The breakfast was leisurely and with the complimentary newspaper and a nice pot of tea was a great start to a Sunday. The only slight issue maybe parking. We were lucky enough to get one of the few free hotel spaces but the parking in the nearby multi-storey may be expensive for the weekend. This hotel has the whole package, great rooms, a well stocked bar and attentive staff.

We had a night away at the Hotel du Vin in Bristol and stayed in one of their suites. We have stayed here before and always had a really nice stay. I would just say that I feel that the hotel is starting to feel like it needs refurbishing. There is a lovely bar with a "shabby chic" feel but the sofas aren't especially comfortable (or easy to climb out of!). The rooms are well equipped with new coffee machines but it is all starting to feel a bit tatty around the edges with peeling paint in areas and just generally a bit worn. However, that aside, it is a lovely welcoming hotel with very pleasant staff and lovely cocktails!!

Room Tip: The best room is the Harveys suite which has a rooftop courtyard

Well placed, boutique hotel in the centre of Bristol.The large Cabot Circus shopping complex is an easy 10 minute walk in one direction whilst the harbour side bars, restaurants and clubs are a 10 minute walk the other way. Despite it's central location it's surprisingly quiet. The bar and restaurant make the most of the, restored 18th century warehouse building, with uneven wooden floors, original iron work ceiling supports, and roughly painted stone walls with the nails still stuck in their place. Comfy, uncoordinated leather chairs and sofas give the bar area a contemporary feel.

Our bedroom was spacious, well furnished with lots of storage.The bed was unbelievably comfortable - a great nights sleep. The bathroom was an equally good size, with a free standing bath and a large, walk through, drench head shower.

The staff were unobtrusive and polite - if anything a little soulless - but pleasant enough.

The Room with breakfast came to £150. All in all a good deal for what we had. The only down side was parking, with only 8 or so hotel parking spaces outside the front door - so it's a real lottery as to whether you get one or not. The nearest NCP is a short 5 minute walk over the road - but it cost £19 to park over night.

Would recommend as a base for a couples weekend break and/or an overnight business trip. Will definitely stay there again next time I'm down.
