We enjoyed a one night stay here in mid-December as part of our three-day first wedding anniversary trip and en route home after a work's Christmas party further north. Hotel du Vin has a great atmosphere, very pleasant bar and dining area along with a small 'snug' which was a cosy place to have after-dinner coffee. As other reviewers have already commented, all the staff were very friendly, polite and helpful.
If you're a smoker, the purpose-built outdoor smoking area at the back is an excellent facility - it certainly makes for a more comfortable smoke on a rainy day!
Our ground-floor standard room in the rear annexe was a good size, with bathrobes, slippers and coffee-making facilities all provided. However, we did find it rather too warm and struggled to work out the heating controls.So with hindsight, we should have asked advice on this when shown to our room.
The hotel is ideally located for walking into the city centre and its large car park is a great bonus, despite the extra charge.
We would certainly recommend this hotel and stay again - although it's on the more expensive side, it's worth it as a treat!
