I booked hotel du vin for a romantic break over christmas for my fiancé and I. The hotel itself was extremely conveniently located for getting in and out of York from the motorway and included access to a big car park which is a bonus for hotels in the city. It was then a 5 minute walk to the wall of the old town and nice bars and restaurants along the water ten-fifteen minutes way which could be walked along the wall itself!
The hotel itself was luxurious and our room was much bigger and more beautiful than we had anticipated. The staff had really gone the extra mile and had a local Yorkshire beer on ice for my fiancé which was requested (and forgotten about by me) when I initially booked. The bathroom was huge with lovely deep bronze bath and walk-in power shower and the bed was extremely comfortable with newspaper outside our door when we came out in the morning.
The staff at the hotel were extremely friendly and down to earth especially the lady on reception on the 23rd when we arrived to check-in. Even offering us an umbrella for our walk.
The bistro although expensive had beautiful and well cooked steaks and a special atmosphere that added to our romantic break. I would highly recommend this hotel to couples and can't wait to return next time we visit England!
