Hotel Du Vin Exeter

Exeter, Devon

The Exeter based Hotel Du Vin, a “contemporary wonderland” as Alastair Sawday dubbed it, is set in the heart of Exeter. Take a step inside the iconic building, formerly an Eye Infirmary, where historic walled gardens and striking architecture create the backdrop for a truly special experience. This glorious Exeter hotel is brimming with its own charm and unique personality. Stay in one of the gorgeous rooms and suites, each with comfortable beds, Egyptian cotton sheets and power showers or roll top baths.

Hugo Dalton was inspired to mural the lounge wall, opening out onto the magical terrace and garden perfect for sketching faeries, writing novellas or simply sipping a glass of Pinot. If the weather doesn't inspire you, a short meander through the hotel library certainly will, whilst the call of the bar and bistro is sure to tempt you with its fantastic range of bottles and beautiful French-inspired menus. Finally nestled in the relaxing walled garden, The REN Spa is the perfect place to recharge and enjoy a little piece of tranquillity in the city.
