The only thing French about the Hotel du Vin is the great Wine List in the restaurant (and it stretches beyond French wines) - the rest is a true market leader in British hospitality (other chains - wake up and take note). From the classic, well thought out and comfortable design, to the friendly, attentive service - this place is a real winner. No stuffy Reception Desk on arrival - just a 'low', old fashioned writing desk and a friendly welcome. My room was not massive, but was well designed, with a large bathroom. Stand out points were the fresh coffee presses (when will other hotels stop serving instant coffee...), rain shower head, and the oversized bathroom amenities. Only one small negative - the sink was quite a shallow design and therefore not great for shaving. The bar has sumptuous sofas to flop into and the restaurant offers a wonderful selection of 'classics' - both of which are staffed by a friendly and attentive Team. A first class experience. I can't wait for my next visit to a Hotel du Vin.
