“Wish I could have stayed longer”
Reviewed 20 July 2010

Spent a Friday night here. Lovely rooms (though a bit tricky to find as they have names and not numbers) with a big bath in the bedroom and nice furnishings. Friendly, bright staff. The bar is open late which was quite handy. Would certailny recommend and wish I had had longer there.

The location was great, walking distance from the town centre, lots of shops there. The food was great, we had dinner there as it was our wedding anniversary, so treated ourselves, and we weren't disappointed. Breakfast was also superb. Staff were very attentive. The toilets were fantastic, they even had a flat screen Tv in them ... how cool is that!!. The room was extremely very elegant and contemporary, and all the rooms are different. tye en-suite had a monsoon shower over a roll top bath, which was also fantastic. The decor again was beautiful. even the corridoors very beautifully done out. Would highly recommend, but it wasn't cheap....... this was definately 'You get what you pay for' type of hotel. would go again, or try one of there other hotels.

We are travelliing from overseas and this was our first time in Cheltenham. The loaction of the hotek was wonderful and our room was immaculate. The bed was comfy and the room was spacious. The food was good but nothing to write home about, a little on the expensive side. We spent our days exploring the town and visiting the art gallery and museum. I have heard about the wonderful music festival and would love to come back for it. I would definitely stay at Hotel du Vin again if I am ever fortunate enough to make it back to Cheltenham. Thanks to the staff for making my stay such a a pleasant one.

Stayed her for one night only and quickly wished we had booked in for a longer stay! The room was fabulous, very spacious with a fantastic bathroom. Great amenities in room, from air conditioning and robes to tea/coffee and at long last an hotel with a proper hairdryer! Can't fault it!! Also the staff on reception where extremely welcoming, taking you to your room personally.Used the bar, but not the restaurant. The bar was big, airy and friendly. The service was excellent. A bit pricey for drinks but you expect that in any hotel bar. Overall would recommend a stay at Hotel du Vin in Cheltenham! Looking forward to our next visit.

My boyfriend and I stopped here between the 28th and 30th of December, 2009, after reading reviews on TripAdvisor. It was an elegant hotel; we were given a big (but somewhat understated) room with a massive bed. No fancy decor here. The bathroom was very compact but no complaints really – the heated floors were appreciated due to the cold weather. The service at breakfast was a bit of a let-down; we waited approximately 30 minutes for a small and basic serving of Eggs Benedict. There seemed to be a shortage of staff so this could have explained it. We ate out every night so I cannot comment on the restaurant. The bar decor was aesthetically pleasing but there could have been some more intimate seating available, but still, it was cosy. Again, service could be a bit more at your service! Overall, a beautiful hotel but it lacks in any intimate charm and warmth. Worth a visit if you’re in Cheltenham for a few days but it lacks any va-va-voom. I guess it's more for business, friends or family guests, and not so much for those seeking a romantic getaway. I am sure you'll enjoy your stay!

We stayed with HDV on their Sunday deal and upgraded our room to one with a rolltop bath in the bedroom for £35 based on spending more than £70 in the brasserie. The great thing about our stay was that after we booked we were told that the restaurant was closed as they were holding a wine dinner with Ian Botham, Bob Willis and Geoff Merrill. We were offered a discount on the tickets for the dinner which we snapped up as Ian Botham is one of my sporting heroes. Food and Botham Merrill Willis wines was excellent and great stories from Messrs Botham Merrill and Willis.
We also had Sunday lunch in the garden at the rear of the hotel during the mini heatwave that we had which was very good.
Hotel was beautiful in a really nice part of Cheltenham. Room was excellent with a monsoon shower in the bathroom as well as the bath in the bedroom.
I think the normal hotel rates are a lot more than what we paid but would be good value for what is a great hotel with excellent service. We also managed to get a spa treatment at very short notice.

I had a wonderful stay at the HdV in Cheltenham and would highly recommend it for those wanting to be close enough to central Cheltenham to walk the town centre. The breakfast was just OK but good enough. The room was very nicely furnished and the bed was quite comfortable. Would definitely stay here again.
