“Great location, lovely building, fantastic service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2012

We stayed at the Hotel du Vin with my parents and brother as a birthday treat for my parents.

The hotel is in a great location a short walk from St Philip's Cathedral and nearby shops. The building is the former eye hospital and is spectacular. The interior has been very effectively and sympathetically converted. My parents stayed an extra night and ate in the bistro. They had a lovely meal and enjoyed the people watching opportunities. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. We made use of the valet parking service which was very convenient.

We have just two small niggles:
- the first room we were given was small and the large bed meant that I cracked my shins twice within ten minutes of checking in;
- the room was also dark with only a very small window and limited lighting.
The reception staff responded very positively when we raised our concerns and allowed us to view other rooms, one of which we chose and were very happy with. The new room was large and airy with big windows letting in lots of light and a great Juliet balcony. The room also had a fabulous walk-in shower. The room was on the interior overlooking the glass roof of a public room on the ground floor so no views but wonderfully peaceful. I still cracked my shins a couple of times which I think is due to the design of the beds.

Room Tip: Ask for an internal room to avoid city centre noise and ask for one with a Juliet balcony for lots o...

I am a regular customer at Hotel Du Vin Birmingham as I am there regularly for business so when I heard about the sudden price increases I was not surprised. I was unhappy with the fact I was not offered any discounts. Hotel Du Vin still offers high quality accommodation and I shall be returning but as a result of increased pricing I will not be returning any time soon.

Stayed at the hotel for my sisters wedding. The wedding was amazing and n the main we had a wonderful time in the rooms too. Bed big and comfortable, although do try not to keep banging your leg on the bed end, tea/ coffee in the room was good, shower rather good too. Breakfast was lovely but I'd have liked semi skimmed milk and low fat spreads as an option without asking. The floor boards creaking did become a problem as you can hear the ones in the rooms above,below and your own.

Suggestions : if you have new people on the desk for check in, could they be shadowed by more experienced staff to avoid frustration. Could they also be reminded that they represent the hotel and first impressions are very, very important especially when hoping for repeat business. Sour faces do not make the right impression. The lighting situation in the main reception in the evening may need looking at to avoid accidents or have more lighting around the steps
