I was looking forward to our first visit to a Hotel du Vin. Reception which seemed to be full of people was very helpful. We were shown to our room. The window at the side overlooked part of the university teaching accomodation. The sash cord of the window was broken. From the dirt, it clearly had not just happened. Below the window to the right was a side roof where several of the slates were broken with pieces in the gutter. If the management is prepared to let their guests see such lack of care, there is clearly something wrong with the management. The room itself was really boring unless you think a black ambience and a wine picture on the wall is oo-la-la and exciting. The best feature was the bathroom floor which was heated. The hotel itself is tired and scruffy and certainly overpriced. I would not stay again.
