I felt compelled to write this review after reading some previous reviews which do not shed a very good light on the hotel, in particular the Bistro. My husband and I spent last weekend at the hotel, and had a wonderful meal in the Bistro on Sunday evening. The staff are absolutely faultless, we stay in nice hotels as treats throughout the year; all I can say is that I have already booked to revisit the Hotel Du Vin in York twice before this Xmas! The food in the Bistro was fantastic, in particular my husband said his steak was perfect, they even made a fresh sauce for him as he didn't want the choice from the menu. The staff throughout the hotel including the Bistro were so attentive and appeared very genuinely concerned that we enjoyed our stay. We have stayed at The Lowry in Manchester and various Malmaisons in the UK, but the HDV York definately has more to offer. The room was lovely, very sumptuously decorated and the hotel itself being in a listed building had a very unique charm and character you wouldn't find in the rival characterless Hilton hotels. We have actually stayed at the Hilton York, although this is more central, the quality of the room, restaurant and service does not even compare. And to say the Hilton is usually more expensive? So impressed were we with the Hotel Du Vin we will be revisiting in October and November, and I am trying to arrange a Spa break for my sister for her birthday in October, hopefully with the Hotel Du Vin Harrogate. If there ever were any supposed problems with the service in York, have no fear because there are no longer. I booked the hotel before reading the reviews and must say I was slightly concerned. However, I am so glad I decided to judge the hotel for myself because not only did we have a wonderful weekend, my husband and I have also found a new romantic retreat.
