My wife and I was presented on our last night with a card machine as we were about to leave the dining room, and thus paid by card for what we clearly thought were for the evening drinks, but I was unaware that I was also paying for our evening meals that was already inclusive in our breakfast and dinner package and thus already paid for. I have already sent an email to the hotel, but no response to date.

Highly disappointed. Having stayed and eaten here before I reserved two rooms only to be told they cannot accommodate me in the restaurant for dinner with a colleague and guests. Despite rooms still being available online, directly and through agent sites the restaurant is full. No priority to hotel guests it would seem resulting in a lost booking of around £500-£600 on this occasion and my company looking for alternatives in the future. On review of recent feedback there seem to be a good number of low ratings at the moment - no doubt Covid will be the scapegoat.

Fantastic stay. Booked into a Junior Suite Garden room. Room was fabulous, and the air con a real bonus. The staff were so helpful, nothing was too much trouble. We had our evening meal and breakfast in the restaurant and again, faultless. A huge heartfelt thank you to Thomasz who with his team made this a special occasion for us.

We had to cancel a trip to Boston, USA due to US travel restrictions. We decided to make use of the time off by visiting a couple of UK destinations we wouldn't normally visit. First was Winchester and the Hotel du Vin & Bistro. We splashed out on a 'Deluxe' room for 3 nights. One attraction of this hotel is we have stayed at other Hotel du Vin before and been impressed. This is also the original Hotel du Vin so thought it would be the 'flagship' hotel of the chain. Didn't pay too much attention to room when we arrived as we needed to get out for early dinner reservation. Next morning we looked a bit closer at the room and noticed - - Badly cracked bathroom sink - Water stains on ceiling - Crumbling wall above fireplace - Mummified wasp and cobwebs on window frame - Room mini-bar(fridge) didn't work (not stocked due to Covid but card said we could use for our cooling own drinks) - In room safe did not work (no power) All this is bad enough, but when you pay £282 per night (including parking charge) for a 'Deluxe' room it is even less acceptable. We know that many other hospitality venues used the time they were closed due to lockdown to renovate their rooms and facilities. Not here! We informed reception of the faulty fridge and safe. They apologised and said they would get maintenance to sort them out. Nothing happened (while we were there). A real shame as the hotel is in an excellent location. Just a few minutes walk to cathedral and city centre. We will now avoid Hotel du Vin in the future. Following Winchester we stayed at Mal Maison, Oxford (same hotel group) and that was excellent - at £440 per night MUCH better value.

Having previously enjoyed very positive dining experiences at Hotel du Vin, sadly this was not one. The lovely ambiance of the garden setting was spoilt by a disappointing meal and service. There was a long wait to be served and wine that was ordered for the first course was being located “ in the cellar” and failed to materialise until the first course was finished. The waiter clearly didn’t think this was a problem, despite a full bottle of red sitting on the table for the main course! The chateaubriand, although tasty was presented in think wedges like it had been carved with a hack saw, rather unappealingly. The sauces, however, were delicious, including the fries and sides. It was an expensive birthday treat which didn’t rise to the occasion.
