My recent stay in Harrogate was spoilt by the hard sell to up grade everything when booking the night away over the phone before hand, from what sounded like a central booking office for the group, shame, no personal touch.
I was expecting really good food and wine, but was disappointed at the high mark up on the very extensive wine list, hence most people sitting about with a pint of beer before dinner!
Food wasn't bad in the empty dining room, it was mid week but it seemed most residents had gone out to eat! My broccoli with hollandaise was awful, the hollandaise was watery and insipid.
The room was nice and bed was comfortable, good shower and nice smellies.
Was the whole stay value for money? I don't think so, I would rather stayed in a cosy and personable B & B and spent my cash at one of the many other restaurants in town.
Sorry Hotel du Vin I won't be recommending or coming back.
