Our appeal is all down to our attitude. Simple yet sophisticated. Informal yet luxurious. Elegant yet unpretentious. It’s a commitment to doing the little things brilliantly. We’re justifiably proud of our collection of 16 townhouse and city-centre properties. Each Hotel du Vin has its own character, shaped by the architecture, history and sensitive conversion of the original building. At the heart of each, our bistros serve French classics with a British twist. And thanks to our close relationships with vineyards and winemakers, our cosy, low-lit bars offer many of the world’s finest and best-kept secret wines.

We are a small team who see beauty in the detail – getting even the small things right for our guests. Thoughtful and relaxed, enjoying the difference that every day brings.

We are always on the lookout for individuals who share our belief in the spirit of true hospitality and in return staff receive the following:

  • 2 complimentary room nights B&B per year for all employees
  • Staff & Family & friends rates
  • 50% discount on F&B
  • Pension Scheme

A brewery for 300 years, we've re-incarnated this cluster of historic listed buildings to create one of the most striking hotels in Avon Gorge. Enhancing its charming, original period detail... exposed beams and brickwork... while adding our own contemporary sparkle. Take a leisurely lunch al fresco in the central courtyard or sample some hearty, seasonal dishes in our trademark bistro. Enjoy a glass of the finest fizz in the light and airy Champagne bar or your favourite tipple at the pewter topped bar, with over 600 wines to sample in the wine cellar. Visit our cosy cigar Bothy or relax on our comfy sofas for a nightcap under low beams in the Snug. You can even celebrate a private party, family celebration or wedding in a unique function room at Hotel du Vin Avon Gorge. Then escape to the sanctuary of one of our 43 beautifully furnished rooms to find a custom-made bed, hand-sprung mattress, soft Egyptian cotton bed linen, fluffy towels and robes, monsoon shower or roll top bath.
