Sales Manager - Hotel du Vin, Harrogate
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.

Harrogate brims with character. A delightful mix of elegant tree-lined avenues, attractive period architecture, quirky independent shops, cobbled streets, chic bars, restaurants and cafés - and Yorkshire's famous teashops. Sitting opposite the beautiful open grassland of The Stray is our Harrogate hotel, fashioned from a row of Georgian houses in the distinctive old town. Outside, its classic period features provide a clue to that oh so distinctive Hotel du Vin style and relaxed ambience inside. You'll feel right at home. Relax in the walled courtyard and go al fresco. Enjoy an enticing aperitif, cocktail, or glass of fizz in the elegant, informal pewter top bar. Tuck into hearty seasonal fair in our trademark bistro. Explore over 600 wines with our expert Sommelier in the glass-walled wine cellar. Unwind with a digestif in a soft leather sofa in the Cellar Snug. Treat yourself to a pampering in our Health du Vin spa. Hold a business meeting; celebrate a family get-together, private dinner party or wedding in one of our quirky function rooms. And when sleep calls, retire to one of our 48 bedrooms to discover a huge custom-made bed with hand-sprung mattress, soft Egyptian bed linen, fluffy robes and towels, and monsoon shower or deep roll top bath. As they say round these parts, "By 'eck, tha's grand."
