We finally got to the castle and as we got closer, we saw, and heard, a group of children which must have been at a birthday party charging the castle with their swords. We got to the castle which was probably the highest point in ...

We finally got to Shakespeare's birthday place, a house which has been a little restored but for the most part left the same as it was.

different motorways, skirting Oxford until we came to the place of

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel du Vin & Bistro Birmingham
Check the price of the room
I booked the room through Laterooms. the price quoted was room only @£110.00.
When I checked out the bill showed £125.00. I pointed out the error and was told that the rate advertised by Laterooms was wrong and the correct rate was £125. However, they did reduce the room charge to Laterooms price. Just a small niggle on an otherwise excellent stay but still made me feel uncomfortable when checking out.
Spa excellent; ask for Madelaine. And food superb.
Well it didn't start very well when we pulled up outside the front door, with a car loaded with all the accoutrements it appears necessary to cart around to support a 1 year old, only to find narrow doors, steep steps and no doorman to help out. After a lot of prodding the receptionist did help us to our room, but it was an inauspicious start.
Lovely food with a good city location but the brutalist feel of our large room spoilt this hotel for us. We were told we were upgraded but I think this room " Courvoisier" is the one they can't sell as a deluxe. It is located on the first floor over the restaurant so you hear the entrance door banging incessantly until the room has been prepared for breakfast the next morning. Thankfully this isn't too late, around 12 30 am but bad enough if you were paying £150 +a night, clearly unacceptable. Our room sounds exactly the same as an earlier TA's upgrade, very big, in shades of brown, black, grey and white. The floor covering was a nasty shade of dirty beige/grey and I am not sure what it was made out of but it was definitely more suited to a factory than a bedroom floor.
As someone who is more used to B&Bs, I can confirm that it was well worth shelling out the extra for this wonderful treat. Great room with a vast bed, lovely understated decor, and excellent (but unobstrusive) service. Loved the two bars too (Champagne bar and Cellar Bar) which both had a great atmosphere.
The only slight hitch I could find was the breakfast staff who were rather vague/disorganised, but it really didn't detract from the overall great impression.
We booked a SPA weekend at the hotel together with our friends. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the bubbles bar team were especially efficient.
Took advantage of HdV's B&B deal from their own website last friday night.
Loved every minute
Just got back from a weekend here. Loved it from start to finish. The rooms are huge, the bed is big enough for four and the most comfortable thing you'll ever sleep in. The staff are obliging and discreet. The roll top baths are wonderful, but the 'monsoon showers' are the biggest treat! Considering a room here costs just a tenner or so more than Malmaison, I'd stay here every time in preference (and I'm usually the Mal's biggest fan!). Highly recommended.
Modern luxury and real character in a City Centre location
I was intially extremely impressed by the decor of the lobby of the hotel and the sense of space afforded by the tranquil courtyard.
My deluxe room was a good size and the bathroom (s!) were tremendous with a freestanding bath and the best shower I have ever tried.
The bed and linen were of excellent quality. I didn't get up in time for breakfast but lunch and dinner were both great. The wine list wwas a bit boggling but the sommelier was very helpful.
I would recommend this hotel for both business and pleasure.
This is part of the small Hotel du Vin chain of hotels which are run by a group of wine loving directors. As a result, they run weekend wine tasting courses at this Birmingham outpost of the group.
Just came home from a trip which included 2 nights at the Hotel du Vin. The hotel, a converted hospital, is centrally located-- within walking distance of Birmingham's Arts Center, City Hall, museums, bars and restaurants. The rooms have kept some details of their original building, especially in the bathrooms, and are modern yet comfortable in decoration with spacious-enough rooms compared to most boutique hotels I have stayed in. The warm and friendly atmosphere created by small details and a very efficient and welcoming staff keep this place from being coldly ultra-trendy. The restaurant is ok--not fabulous (due to somewhat overambitious and unevently executed food), though as one would expect from the "Hotel of Wine" with a good and rather well-rounded wine list. Would stay here again, and would recommend it to others!
