Having had the weekend booked as a surprise for my 40th Birthday it was the first time any opf our party of 2 couples that we had stayed in a Hotel Du Vin. From checking in and being shown to our rooms by a very friendly and efficient reception staff we were pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness and quality of the finish in the bedroom and bathroom. We were both in the Minster building which is seperaqte to the main Hotel building and both rooms were quiet even though they looked out onto the main Tadacaster Road side. We booked on a Room only basis and after a meal out and drinks the previous evening we decided not to have the breakfast at additional cost. We did however have a bar lunch the previous day which we found to be adequate but no more if a little expensive.
Our one gripe was when we returned from our evening out for a couple of "nightcaps" the young barman was more interested in cashing up and when we finally got hnis attention were served drinks only for him to vanish for more than 45 mins. When we asked for another round of drinks he matter of factly told us the bar was closed......and of he dissapeared again. Anothe rparty of more than 6 came in after this to be dissapointed.
Overall a really nice stay in a really top notch boutique hotel slightly spoiled by a lack of customer service in the bar......it would not stop us stopping here again though.
