The third Hotel du Vin & Bistro is an intriguing change in style, reflecting its distinctive location in a group of early industrial buildings in central Bristol known as The Sugar House. Dating back to the 1700's, over the past 300 years this site has seen a variety of different uses, including clay pipe manufacture, tobacco processing and, in more recent times, sugar refining.
Interiors and decor are in a styling more often associated with the contemporary vogue for loft and warehouse conversions, with simple whitewashed rubble walls and steel columns artfully revealing the buildings' working pedigree. As in the sister properties at Winchester and Tunbridge Wells, the bedrooms are named after famous wine houses and feature superb beds, CD players, iron cast baths and power showers. The focus of the hotel is an open flagged courtyard complete with fountain, strongly reminiscent of the many French hostelries designed in this manner.
The Bistro offers simple cooking of outstanding quality prepared under the guidance of chef Eddy Grey, together with a wine list of remarkable range and value. From the opulently decorated Lanson Room to the cigar festooned walls of the Janneau Room, featuring a full size antique billiard table, Hotel du Vin Bristol offers all the delights with which we are now familiar in a new and unique setting.
