“Excellent overnight stay - sadly too short”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

We stayed on a Friday night, arrived and were told that we were upgraded to another room.
Roederer Cristal
WOW what an awesome room it was.
Huge Bed, two baths, the shower is bigger than the average hotel room. We cancelled our Bistro reservation and ordered room service as it was more fun to stay in the such a great room.

The food was as good as ever, nothing was too much trouble for the staff, the cot we asked for was already in the room, high chair was provided to assist in the feeding of guest number 3!

The only fault that we can find with the rooms is one echoed by others who have stayed that the pillows are slightly lacking on the comfort side, there are plenty of them but they are too soft on the whole.

Breakfast set us up well for the rest of the day as we wandered around Brighton, the service and choice is great, would do well to carry some of the dishes through to the Sunday Brunch menu.

We will be continuing our tour of the HDV chain - think Winchester or Cambridge are next on the visit list. Hope that they continue the great service that we have become used to.

Room Tip: put down for the option of upgrading when you use their website to book a room - these options not a...

Stayed on a business trip, and being my first time was not sure what to expect from a Du Vin Hotel. Well I was definately wowed. The size of the room, the level of comfort / amenites, the cosiness, the friendliness of the staff, and their 1st class sommelier, Ziggy.
Will definately be back, but next time with the family.

Stayed at this lovely hotel in brighton with a business group at the end of April. The room i stayed in was very spacious and the decor had a British feel to it. I had a large bay window with a view of the ocean which was nice to wake up to. As a group we had a wine tasting with Ziggy which was a fantastic way to start off an evening with a group of work colleagues. Ziggy was outstanding and his knowledge and expertise were 5 star. We had dinner after the tasting which was delicious and Ziggy had even matched wines to accompany. The breakfast the following morning was top notch - Salmon & scrambled eggs, a great way to start the day.

Love this chain have stayed at many, Brighton, Edinburgh, York, Cheltenham and every hotel is great the only thing is the beds are very uncomfortable my self and my husband both wake up with very bad back ache and the pillows are absolutely rubbish they need to address these problems, invest in better thicker pillows please.

Lovely relaxed bar. Drink and food prices are a little pricey but the staff are great and very knowledgable about the drinks etc.

Hotel room we stayed in was fab but wasn't spotlessly clean like you'd expect.

Great place for special occasions or as a treat!

Having checked previous reviews I asked for a quiet room when booking. This appears to be a must with this hotel as the road can be noisy at night and we found the hotel bar to be rather lively one night.

You are unable to park outside as on the edge of the Lanes although there is a bay for a few cars to drop off bags etc outside. We therefore dropped luggage and parked in the nearby NCP car park. This is costly but the hotel does give you a discount voucher for it. This was straightforward and not a problem.

We stayed in the Torres room which is on the 3rd floor away from the front of the hotel and was quiet. It is accessed by lots of stairs and corridors. We did not see a lift at all within the hotel.

Our room was clean and nicely appointed. Breakfast was lovely

It was hard to fault this hotel. The staff were very professional and attentive. This is our new favourite hotel in Brighton and we will be back.

I stayed here with my girlfriend and we bought our dog (pet friendly). The staff were very friendly and helpful from the outset. The hotel is clean and modern and very comfortable. We had a deluxe room which had a lovely bath and huge walk in shower. If there is a drawback it would be that the heating/air conditioning didn't seem to work but this doesn't take away from the way we were treated and made to feel welcome by the staff. The hotel being pet friendly also added to the experience as it was clear that the dog was more than welcome at the hotel too!
