We were looking for a one night stay and wanted something a little bit special and in a great location. So often hotels bill themselves as luxury or high end and fall short and disappoint - The Hotel du Vin, did not disappoint. We booked a superior room with a claw foot bath in the bedroom. The super king bed was dreamy with Egyptian cotton linen, beautiful soft pillows and mattress and the room had a pretty balcony overlooking a courtyard. Thankfully the room was also air conditioned. The room came with Smart TV, a mini bar and a Nespresso machine.
The hotel itself was charming, elegant and quirky. Lovely bar with a sunny terrace, attractive dining room and just a minute round the corner from the quayside. Parking was not a problem as we were lucky and found a space in the small hotel car park, however we were told there was another if this was full. There is a £10 overnight charge though for both! Staff were really friendly and helpful.
We dined at the restaurant and the food was good although the breakfast didn't quite meet the same standard. I would not hesitate to stay again - however I might choose a room only rate and dine out next time, as eating and drinking at the hotel can push your bill up quite considerably and frankly there are some fantastic places to eat nearby and worth a try. Thank you - fantastic stay!
