Stayed in Tunbridge to atend a hospital appt nearby - travelled from manchester. Although our main purpose of stay was to attend a hospital appt we wanted to turn it into a 'mini break' I agonised between this hotel and Spa Hotel up the road. So glad I picked this hotel! Due to a few bad reviews we didnt plan on dining in the Bistro - had a wander round Tunbridge which is filled with 'chain' restaurants. We decided to just opt for the Bistro and were not disappointed! The food was exactly what it sets its stall up to be 'Bistro' dining - though it is slightly on the pricey side! Wine was very nice. The rooms are pleasant if a tad small - but then how big does your room need to be? The rooms are quite dimly lit to fit in with the Hotel Du Vin sultry style and mirrors are not in abundance! Breakfast was simply divine! A great array of continental options with homemade flapjacks and apple loaf along with homemade preserves followed by a lovely grease free fresh breakfast - it was refreshing to have scrambled eggs in a hotel that were not rubbery and inedible! All in all we were both very pleased - having stayed in many 5 star top ranking hotels this was a refreshing change and delevered in every way!

BISTRO: Open all week, and under the tutelage of head chef Daniel McGarey, Bistro du Vin is at the heart of our hotel, a classic, French styled, elegant and informal setting for lunch, dinner, to meet, celebrate or simply pass the time.
