The Hotel du Vin
at One Devonshire Gardens is a 49-room luxury hotel occupying an elegant row of
Victorian townhouses in Glasgow's West End neighborhood. While there's not
a great deal in the immediate area, car access is particularly easy and
the city center is a 15-minute drive away. The property’s period features have
been superbly maintained and the chain's focus on food and drink means top-notch
dining options. While rooms are full of high-end touches, some are indeed of a refresh and a few can feel gloomy. Overall, it's an excellent example of the du
Vin chain and one of the finest hotel's you'll find in the Glasgow area.
traditional elegance set in grand Victorian townhouses
Housed in a row
of impeccably presented Victorian townhouses, this Hotel du Vin cuts a
particularly impressive figure from the outset. Originally constructed in the
1870s, the hotel was first opened in 1986 in the number one building and
eventually expanded to occupy all five; it was bought by the du Vin chain in 2006.
Inside is no less grand, with all the trapping of its 19th-century origins on display, from
beautiful stained glass windows to old mosaics to crown moldings to wood
paneling. Every effort has been taken to maintain a sense of history, with
vintage wallpaper, antique furnishings, and gilt-framed oil paintings
contributing to the hotel's air of aged refinement. As one of the most
distinguished hotels in the area, it attracts plenty of well-heeled travelers; it is also no stranger to the occasional celebrity guest, such as George Clooney and Kylie Minogue. The hotel is also popular with weddings and
has been licensed for ceremonies.
on tree-lined road 15 minutes' drive from central Glasgow
The hotel is
located on a peaceful tree-lined road that runs parallel to the busy main road
that leads into the north of Glasgow. It is set on the outskirt of the city's
fashionable West End neighborhood, and the surrounding area is largely residential
and upmarket with little in the way of dining or shopping within walking
distance. The location is particularly convenient for those arriving by
car and it's about a 15-minute drive into central Glasgow.
Rooms have luxury touches
and smart traditional styling -- though some are a little dark.
The hotel's 49 room are decorated in a tasteful blend of contemporary styling, traditional elements, and splashes of tartan. Plenty of the building's original features, such as high ceilings and bay windows, have been retained. Upscale comforts include hand-sprung mattresses and Egyptian bedclothes; in addition, minibars, espresso machines, and iPod docks all come as standard. Smart, vintage-style bathrooms include separate roll-top tubs and rainfall showers, as well as robes and slippers. Suites are particularly spacious and plush, and some offer standout features such as saunas, jetted tubs, four-poster beds, and direct access to the hotel's secret garden. A few rooms, however, are looking a little in need of a refresh, while others are lacking in natural light.
high-end dining options with impressive wine list and cellar
As with most
Hotel du Vin properties, the eating and drinking options are a highlight. The
hotel's oak-paneled bistro is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and offers a
variety of dining options including a la carte, prix fixe, and seven-course
tasting menus. Unsurprisingly, there's also a real emphasis on wine, with a
dedicated sommelier as well as a wine cellar with hundreds of labels. A lounge
bar with a real fire and wingback chairs provides a cozy place to relax while
the Whiskey Bar has dozens of rare and old whiskies to try. There is a small fitness room and Wi-Fi is
available free of charge throughout.
