We spent two nights at the Bristol Hotel du Vin in October 2013. The building is very well situated in central Bristol and is basically charming, as are many of the remaining older buildings in central Bristol (sadly rather overshadowed by terrible post-war planning). I really wanted to love this hotel. It was certainly convenient, with good amenities (bar and really very nice restaurant), but our spacious room was filled with bulky, heavy furniture (are many guests very overweight?) and there was not nearly enough lighting to compensate for the small original windows and dark furnishings. The room felt gloomy and oppressive. It was also not as clean as it should have been - when I moved a chair to use the desk, the light highlighted a thick coating of dust, there was black mould growing on the silicone joint sealant in the walk-in shower and the bath tub was grubby and felt rough to the touch.
I will be returning to Bristol in the next few years and I will try another hotel next time.
