Earlier this month we ran a great value deal from Malmaison hotels, offering a three-course dinner, bed & breakfast at a remarkable £99. That offer expires on 11 November, but the good news is that a largely identical offer is available from its sister hotel chain, Hotel du Vin, and this one runs until 18 November.
The sale rate is £99, £109 or £119, depending on the property in question, with the breakdown as follows:
- Birmingham – £99
- Brighton – £119
- Bristol – £119
- Cambridge – £119
- Cheltenham – £119
- Edinburgh – £119
- Exeter – £99
- Glasgow – £119
- Harrogate – £109
- Henley-on-Thames – £109
- Newcastle – £99
- Poole – £99
- St Andrews – £99
- Tunbridge Wells – £109
- Wimbledon – £109
- Winchester – £119
- York – £99
Is this a good deal?
As with the Malmaison offer, given that a three-course dinner and breakfast is included, this is a genuinely good value deal.
The 3-course dinner is usually £19.95 and breakfast £16.95 per person – that’s a total of £73.80, so you’re effectively paying £25.20, £35.20 or £45.20 for the room alone. Given that room prices at all hotels are always materially over £100, there’s some real savings available.
What’s availability like?
Pretty good at the time of writing.
Here’s Newcastle (£99) in January:

Are Hotel du Vin hotels any good?
Much like sister chain Malmaison, Hotel du Vin hotels are generally quality boutique 4 star affairs, with well-regareded food and some very interesting locations. The Wimbledon property is set within the 34 acre Cannizaro Park:
The Winchester property is on Southgate Street, right in the centre of the city and seconds from the cathedral:
Sticking with our example, the Newcastle hotel is refurbished Edwardian building on the banks of the River Tyne, originally home to the Tyne Tees Steam Ship Company:
