Stay at this contemporary hotel in the heart of historic Exeter, and enjoy a relaxed vibe; Hotel Du Vin offers the ideal base to explore the vibrant cathedral city. Formerly an Eye Infirmary, the iconic redbrick building is home to 59 individually styled bedrooms, a bistro-style restaurant, bar and library as well as the REN spa with a little inside-outside pool and two treatment rooms. Striking architecture and walled-gardens with outdoor seating for alfresco dining, set the backdrop for a unique experience. Situated just a short walk from the city centre, and a stone's throw from the cathedral, it ticks all the boxes for a city escape.



It's fun to hire bikes and cycle the towpath from the quayside to the Turf Lock - a fabulous pub overlooking the Exe estuary with ample outdoor seating and delicious local food.

By car: Exeter is around 4 hours' drive from London, under 2 hours from Brighton and 1 hour from Plymouth. There is on-site parking for £15 per day.
By train: Exeter St David's is a 25-minute walk or short taxi ride from the hotel, reached in around 3 hours from London Waterloo, 1 hour from Bristol, and 3 hours 30 mins from Penzance.

Food & Drink

The herb-crusted cod with Brussels sprouts, confit potato écrasée and sun-blush tomato chutney was hearty and wholesome, followed by fresh, floral raspberry and elderflower trifle.
