“lovely stay”
Reviewed 26 March 2009

We stayed here for our mini-moon after our wedding- so has lovely memories for us.

We'd booked a standard room and it was spacious and classy-def one of the best 4* hotels we've stayed in. The roomservice and general service was fantastic; they even included a free glass of champagne at dinner for us.

10 minute walk into town

Rooms are truly unique, you do expect that with Hotel Du Vin and the price does reflect it. Free standing bath in the bathroom, massive shower. Heated floor, two sinks.

Over the bar and road, but silent.

Couldn't work bedside lights.

Flat screen on the wall, slal digital channels

Minibar

Couple of sofas and chairs (hurt foot in the night!)

Peaceful, cosy, would like to try all the other hotels in the chain

All food excellent

Staff were friendly and efficient

Stayed here for a Sat night in March. Arrived early so we could take advantage of the free parking (very handy). Our room wasn't ready so our bags were secured. When we returned to the hotel our bags were already in the room and they had hung up the suit carrier in the wardrobe - nice touch.

The hotel itself is excellent, just what you would expect from HDV. Our room was average sized but well furnished and very clean. The monsoon shower was excellent and the complimentary toiletries were of a good quality.

The reception staff were helpful and the bar staff were friendly. The bar is quite expensive but you expect the prices with this chain. They did have a great selection of whisky which was great!

I would highly recommend a stay in this hotel, but avoid the restaurant at all costs.

This was one of the worst restaurants i have ate in, very poor service and sub standard food. A total let down.

My husband and I had a romantic get away without our three children last weekend. We stayed in a standard room at the back of the hotel. The room was great with a huge bath and shower and beautiful soft bedding.

Food in the restaurant was very enjoyable but our favourite part was visiting the bar where the lovely french bar man kept suggesting drinks for us to try.

Brilliant service, faultless infact. We felt totally cocooned and pampered. The deputy manager was amazing

All in all a fab getaway. WE WILL BE BACK.

A classy choice - I loved my room, with its huge open plan bathroom, roll-top bath and walk in monsoon shower. Well worth it for the quality of the beds and bedding alone.

The food is great too - but its main let-down is service. Needs more staff in almost every area. Reception check-out was slow and flustered with a big queue. Dinner service was ungracious and inattentive, despite insisting it was impossible to have our table 20 minutes earlier than booked (Lots of empty tables) - because the kitchen wouldn't be able to cope. More like the restaurant staff wouldn't be able to cope!

Anyway - it wouldn't stop me going back (I have a stay booked later this week in fact), and if the service is better i'd rate it 5.

Booked a "Lazy Sunday" break and our room was in an annex next to the hotel. The cost for the night was £169 DB&B. (Normally £149 but because its Valentines weekend we had to pay £169)
The staff on arrival were lovely and very professional, the room was very hot, small but nice.
The bar was expensive (£6.45 for a small wine, i asked for this to be checked on checking out and was told that it was right....WoW!)
The menu was small and the food in my opinion was very average. Starters were fine but for the main course, I had a steak with Chunkey Yorkshire chips ( i got 5 chips) also the sauce had a very thick skin on the top. My wife had the Salmon Fish cake.....and thats what she got A Salmon fish cake and nothing else......its a good job she ordered a side salad.....

This hotel is nice, but if i had paid anymore I would have been very disappointed.

My friend and I used the hotel as a base to meet up for our annual girly weekend, and were highly impressed with our stay. Having stayed in one other York hotel which was beautifully furnished but lacked in every other area we were slightly worried but need not of been as Hotel Du Vin was far superior.

At Hotel Du Vin the welcome wasn't particularly warm to begin with and I was a little perturbed that they got our room rate wrong a few times however, the receptionist and her colleague were more friendly as time went by and our initial reception forgotten. The rooms were lovely, the showers with their monsoon heads were fantastic, beds comfy and the hotel public areas very relaxing and comfortable. Only small gripe was that the mini bar was really well stocked up and very tempting but having to pay for bottled water a little cheeky in this day and age. However, complimentary coffee and tea were top notch.

Breakfast was excellent, the fresh fruit and danish pastries of a very high standard and the cooked breakfast couldn't be faulted, can recommend the bacon benedict, for once the sauce was spot on.

Walking into town was easy and the station only 10 minutes away so for location it was perfect, and we will definately return on our next visit to York.....
