We were greeted nicely although it was Friday at 3 PM and they only had a small woman to escort us to our room. She tried to help us with our luggage but it was really too heavy for her and we ended up having to carry it on our own. Spacious room with air conditioning that marginally worked. Poorly lit bathroom to the point that it was very difficult to see what I was doing when shaving. Room was mostly clean but could have used better vacuuming. Hallways in the hotel had tired carpets and the small elevator had a distinctly unpleasant, almost rotten smell. Arrived back to the room on the second day, after being out from 10 AM to 4 PM. The room had not been serviced.
Very overpriced. About 265 Pounds per night. Criminal really! Overpriced and poor quality breakfast with a terribly over salted egg white omelet. We also treated ourselves and guests to dinner in their acclaimed Bistro du Vin. Mediocre would be a generous term for every single appetizer and main course produced except for one chicken dish.
At check out time, they were efficient in taking my money but noticeably neglected to ask me how my stay was, or whether I needed help with my luggage. We moved our own luggage again.
Overall, a completely lack lustre stay. I feel cheated. I would never consider staying at a Hotel du Vin again.
