Hotel du Vin Winchester Simply Luxurious
Hotel du Vin Winchester is the first hotel that was created in the du Vin family. The hotel is housed in a building that was first built in the early 1700s and is located in central Winchester, making it very easy for guests to get around and to access everything the city has to offer. While this is the smallest of all of the du Vin hotels, what it lacks in size it makes up for in luxurious, comfort and service. When you ask around town for the perfect place to stay, nine times out of ten you will be told to stay at the Hotel du Vin as it has made a name for itself for offering spectacular accommodations. The hotel is surrounded by many beautiful gardens that you can overlook as you drink your morning coffee from the comfort of your room.
Winchester is known for being a historic town and the burial place for many famous kings and other royalty. This is also the burial places of Jane Austen and Keats. Many of the original buildings remain and continue to serve the city as they first did when they were built. One such building is the hospital, still open and operating the day you will feel as if you have been taken away to another world the minute you walk in the front door.
The Hotel du Vin Winchester has only twenty-four rooms but all of the rooms are luxurious and sure to make the guests feeling comfortable and relaxed. Guests can choose between standard rooms, family rooms and suites when making a reservation at the hotel. All of the rooms have plasma televisions with cable and on-demand movies. You will also find a private bathroom in all rooms that have luxurious toiletries, a hair dryer and the signature soaker bath and drench showers. There are some rooms that have separate walk-in showers and if this is something that you prefer you will need to make that request known when making your reservation.
This hotel would not be complete without a hotel restaurant. The Bistro restaurant is open seven days a week and is very popular during the breakfast service as everyone wants to come in and enjoy the delicious full English breakfast that is served each morning. The restaurant is known for specializing in French cuisine but there are other options on the menu as well that are perfect for children or guests looking for something different to eat. Guests of the hotel can choose from a wide range of wines that are stored in the hotel wine cellar and if you are not sure what to pick the wait staff will be happy to make the selection for you.
Hotel du Vin Winchester is one of the leading venues for meeting and weddings in the city. There are a number of meeting rooms that feature state of the art audio equipment, an LCD projector and free wireless internet access.
