I stayed at the Hotel du Vin this week with my husband. We has only one night in Bristol and were looking for a boutique hotel. Although our Sat Nav didn't find it when driving in, we managed to spot it straight away by using our eyes and the address. We weren't lucky enough to secure one of the hotel's parking spaces out front, but the NCP car park we were directed towards was only a short walk away. Our room wasn't ready when we arrived at 1pm but the friendly receptionist directed us towards the bar and said that she would try to hurry it along. We opted to go shopping instead and when we returned at 5pm (and a little lighter of wallet) we were checked into Villa Maria. My first impressions of this very large room was that it was a bit like walking into a hotel version of Abercrombie and Fitch - dark blinds, dark wooden wardrobes etc. The bed was large with lovely comfortable pillows. The mini-bar was well stocked. The bathroom was lovely with double glass doors. Yes, they were only partly frosted, but we managed. The bath and shower were impressive - both very powerful. The only niggle was not having a rail for the hand towels - had to keep leaving it on the side of the sink which was fine but did mean that the corners got a bit soggy. We didn't go to the bar - it was empty when we returned from our evening out at midnight but it looked very nice. Breakfast in the morning was really lovely. A great choice of continental and a lovely array of cooked options too. Check-out was a tad on the early side for my liking (11am) but they will apparently endeavour to arrange a later check-out if you ask. All in all I really enjoyed our stay and found the Hotel du Vin to be friendly, stylish and comfortable.
