My wife and I stayed her as a weekend break to get away from it all - it was a spur of the moment thing and we were looking for something special; a little luxury.
Hotel Du Vin in York is a very new building - we've stayed at the more historical one in Bristol and whilst the York site lacks the character, it still has all the great halmark service you would expect.
The rooms are extremely comfortable and quiet - we'd been a bit concerned when we were shown to our room as it was so close to the road, but I can honestly say we didn't hear any traffic noise throughout our stay.
The reception team were very helpful and the bar staff were friendly too.... we took advantage of the bar until the wee small hours and it felt almost as though we were at home - the sofas were comfortable and we even borrowed a chess board from one of the bookshelves and enjoyed a game!
There's a very quaint 'Cigar Shack' outside for the smokers amongst you - a inspired design and such a change from the usual 'bus shelter' stuff you usually get.
We'd been warned that car parking was limited, but we had no problems and there always seemed to be spaces.
I'd recommend Hotel Du Vin for service alone - the fact that you also get a really nice room too is the icing on the cake.
We'll definitely be back....
