We needed a comfortable room for a Saturday night in Brighton that would allow us to bring our dog, and was a few rungs up the ladder from your average Brighton B&B or guest house, so we checked into the Hotel du Vin at great expense. It was comfortable, the staff were pleasant and helpful but for the price the room was small and surprisingly tatty around the edges. All extras were expensive so we swerved the mini bar, and as the hotel was stuffed with three wedding parties that night, we didn't get to have a drink in the bar. The best bit was the bathroom which had a big double ended bath tub and a wonderful giant shower. For an extra £20 we added breakfast to our booking and enjoyed a plentiful plate of kippers, eggs, croissants etc in the dining room the next morning. To avoid the madness of Saturday night stag and hen doos it was money well spent but I would have expected a bit more bang for your buck in terms of space and perhaps a few freebies...maybe a bottle of water at least?
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Hotel du Vin Brighton is situated in the Lanes conservation area, a pebbles' throw from the seafront. Its 49 bedrooms are housed in a collection of eccentric Gothic revival and mock Tudor buildings erected, appropriately by a wine merchant on the site of an old inn. Among many interesting features are a heavily carved staircase and bizarre gargoyles, while the original double-height hall now houses the wine bar and Laroche tasting room. The perfect venue for a picturesque wedding or party is the impressively large and airy Dome room. For the best tankered of local ale, Pub du Vin is one of Brighton city center's treasures with its classic pub dining. Out with the Brighton hotel is the wonder and inspiring town itself, with quaint streets dotted with fabulous shops, and of course the famous pier and promenade. ... more less
