Dubbed a contemporary wonderland by Alastair Sawday, Exeter's Hotel du Vin is housed in an iconic building in the heart of the city. This former Eye Infirmary, with its striking architecture and historic walled gardens, is the newest property in the Hotel du Vin stable. It has its own unique personality with a Hugo Dalton mural on the lounge wall, opening out onto the magical terrace overlooking the gardens where you will also find The REN Spa. The trademark French-styled bistro serves classic dishes with a modern edge and boasts unsurpassed wine cellars and eclectic furnishings and is open seven days a week for lunch and dinner. Bedrooms are sensitively styled according to their own layout to ensure they maximise the available light, with bold colours and contemporary wallpaper, adorned with luscious thick curtains and original artwork.
