The Sugar House, Narrow Lewins Mead, Bristol, BS1 2NU
Hotel du Vin Bristol is set inside a grade II listed restored Sugar House and the owners have carefully created a boutique-feel inn while maintaining much of the character of the building. The 40 rooms are brimming with original features, from the exposed brick feature walls to the gorgeous double-height design of the loft suites. Expect handsprung mattresses, Egyptian linens, roll top baths, drench showers, plasma TVs and air conditioning as standard. The bistro, all primrose yellow pannelled walls, wood floors, Parisian café-style tables and chairs, soft lighting and wine bottles aplenty, serves European dishes with a relaxed, informal vibe. Oh, and there’s even a library to steal away to with a good red and an hour to kill.
Hotel du Vin - Bristol also has a Restaurant:
Hotel du Vin - Bristol is part of the following Travel Ideas:
"One of the newest hotels in Bristol is the conversion of an eighteenth-century sugar factory of which Bristol had over twenty in its industrial heyday back in the eighteenth century. With its Janneau Bar, duplex bedrooms and distressed brickwork bistro, this is about as unlike an airport hotel as you can get. Nine miles away on the A38 through Redcliffe and Bedminster lies the rural Bristol Airport, a pleasant 20-minute drive if you time it right. Ask advice at reception about that."
"Bristol: If something a little bit more sedate is what you’re after, then celebrate the new year Chinese style at the Bristol Museum and Art Gallery on February 21 where staff have organised paper folding lessons, Chinese calligraphy classes, a special Chinese-themed tea and even laid on a Chinese lion. All this is free and a wonderful chance to introduce young children to this ancient culture. Meanwhile at Eastgate Oriental City at the Wai Yee Hong, the new year demons will be scared off with the lighting of an oriental firecracker followed by a Yi Quin lion dance troupe performing their martial arts skills. Stay: Hotel du Vin. Set in a restored sugar house, the hotel’s 40 rooms have loads of great original features with exposed brick walls and double-height loft suites. It’s luxury all the way here, with handsprung mattresses, Egyptian linens, roll top baths, drench showers, plasma TVs and air conditioning as standard. Don’t forget to visit the bistro, a dazzle of primrose yellow walls and Parisian-style café tables. Super."
"Hotel du Vin has just turned 20 and the old Sugar House in Bristol is one of its newest hotels. This is a dark, cozy place to warm yourself up after hitting the shops in Broadmead and Cabot Circus. Here you’ll find chains like House of Fraser, River Island and New Look in easy reach of the hotel but more individual shops like Makers, Blaze and Rag Trade if you walk up the aptly named Christmas Steps to Colston Road. Before heading to your duplex room in the hotel’s luxurious loft make sure you call into the Janneau Bar and Library on the first floor for that well-earned drink."
"Another top hotel for your weekend away is the Hotel du Vin. It’s romantic and relaxed, with standard or deluxe rooms or five loft suites and an extensive wine list to help you unwind. Enjoy a pre-dinner drink in the Bistro or relax in the library, before dining on local produce. If shopping is your thing, you can easily walk from the hotel to Broadmead or Cabot Circus. Walking the other way, you can reach the river, @Bristol or a host of trendy bars in less than five-10 minutes."
"I’m a West country girl and lived in Bristol while working for the Western Daily Press. I was lucky enough to be in situ as Cabot Circus was built - a fantastic shopping destination that mixes high street favourites with pop-up boutiques and special events. House of Fraser, Harvey Nichols, River Island and New Look all have huge stores here. Stay in the nearby Hotel du Vin & Bistro and enjoy a glass of vino after your day of shopping in the Janneau Bar or adjoining Christies Library."
"Situated in the restored Sugar House, Bristol’s Hotel du Vin is near to the popular waterfront area and close to the city centre. It offers has forty bedrooms, including several stunning double-height loft suites. It even has a library where you can prepare for your meeting."
"A lot of Bristol merchants made their fortunes refining sugar from the Caribbean in the eighteenth century. The new Hotel du Vin in Narrow Lewins Mead was one of Bristol’s 20 sugar factories. Today it’s a great bistro in the classic HDV style of distressed brickwork and eclectic furniture. Resident chef, Marcus Lang is held in high local esteem. There’s also a comfortable library and 40 bedrooms, including several loft suite duplexes."
"For a naughty weekend away, the Hotel du Vin chain is a favourite and its Bristol outpost is particularly cool if you’re trying to impress. Lying in a restored 1700s sugar warehouse close to the waterfront, it’s all stunning double-height loft suites, low-lit bistro and courtyard drinking. The 40 bedrooms’ interiors won’t disappoint, particularly the delightfully squishy white Egyptian cotton linen on the huge king-size beds and free-standing roll top baths big enough for two."
"This magnificently restored 18th century sugar house is totally unique and looks over the rejuvenated Bath waterfront. It has an amazing secluded leafy courtyard, ideal for drinks receptions. The 4 function rooms are style personified and ooze class with high vaulted ceilings, arches, lots of natural daylight and private terraces with great views."
