Lovingly converted from a Grade II-listed mansion, Hotel du Vin Tunbridge Wells is one of this beautiful spa town's architectural landmarks. We've enhanced the authentic Georgian period detail, and, of course, added our own characteristic flourishes throughout. Stroll in the beautiful gardens, enjoy the clink of glasses on the terrace or dine al fresco with wonderful views across lush lawns to the ornamental gardens of Calverley Park. Take afternoon tea in the Dom Perignon Lounge. Flop into a leather sofa with your favourite tipple or explore our extensive wine list in the Burgundy Bar. Celebrate a family get-together or stylish wedding in one of our quirky private rooms. Relax with a digestif and fine cigar in the atmospheric Cigar Bothy. Tuck in to tasty, seasonal dishes in our trademark bistro. All before sinking into a hand sprung mattress with Egyptian cotton bed linen on your huge custom-made bed in one of our 34 idiosyncratic bedrooms, complete with fluffy towels and robes, and monsoon shower or roll top bath. Business or pleasure, you'll be royally taken care of at our hotel in Tunbridge Wells.
