Stayed here for the second time in 2 years, comfort, furnishings and decoration of the rooms are top class; unlike a lot of hotels wish that we could have spent more time in the room than we did! Staff are very friendly and attentive, staying here couldn't be easier!

Had the set Christmas Menu today, waited 45 minutes for the starter to arrive a version of crab, prawn and avocado cocktail which was very lacking in avocado. Unfortunately the beef bourguignon was a chunk of dry beef with mushroom and a spoonful of gravy. The accompanying vegetables were adequate, the star of the meal for me was the cheese...

I couldn't have been more disappointed, despite having previously loved many of the other HdVs Room was disappointing with the bathroom showing definite signs of age (grout coming away around the tiles, dripping tap, limescale all over shower head) - plus very noisy air conditioning in the room Service was also very poor. Whilst having champagne in the bar -...

My favourite hotel chain, reliable, classy, excellent service with the feel of a boutique hotel. Very handy setting in the centre of Winchester, beautifully decorated with a lovely cosy feel and wonderfully friendly staff. I didn't eat on this visit but have in the past and the food is amazing. We had impeccable service from the red haired barman and...

Lovely hotel, room spacious and well appointed, staff very helpful and friendly. But the designation 'luxury hotel' is pushing it a bit, and it is over priced. No matter how nice the room, I do not expect in a luxury hotel to be disturbed by the sound of the occupants of the room next door moving around and talking. If...

Excellent food, good presentation and efficient service for lunch. Overall a very pleasant occasion but the service in the Bar area needs to improve ahd the hotel generally needs to attend more to the physical comfort of their patrons. It was a cold, wet day yet the Bar area fire had not been lit and the room was cold -...

My husband and I spent two nights, had dinner one night and breakfast one morning. Our deluxe room Renault was adequate in almost every way with water,shoe shine etc. However it so dark we were unable to read. The windows were permanently fogged up with condensation.The outer window frames were rotting. Despite being double glazed the road noise was bad...

Nice place. Pretty quaint house in keeping with Winchester's decor and we had a starter of garlic prawns and the figs. My prawns were good but there wasn't a lot to the figs although they were good. I got the chateaubriand and wine deal thing for £50 which came with fries and a side. It was pretty good and filled...

This is a review of a dinner I had with a group of five in the bistro. I have been to the Hotel du Vin several times over a number of years and it had a great reputation about 15 years ago.

My husband and I returned last week from our annual short break which we take for his birthday. As owners of two small companies, we go away as co-directors, relax, unwind and at some point find we quite like each other. I suppose you could say we are HdV regulars, we love the brand, it is instantly recognisable where ever...
