Hotel du Vin & Bistro Poole description

Hotel / Conference Centre

Medium (1-150)

ab a bucket and spade. Don a sou'wester. Or simply soak up the relaxed maritime atmosphere of one of England's most beautiful seaside towns. Welcome to Poole. And where better to enjoy the sea breeze in your hair than just off the historic Quayside in a narrow cobbled street at charming Hotel du Vin Poole.
Miles of glorious, golden sand on the cleanest beaches in Britain. The largest natural harbour in Europe. A captivating seafront. Colourful fishing boats. Exhilarating watersports. The largest Arts centre outside London. The wildlife haven of Brownsea Island. Stunning coastal walks. Poole is a delightful place for inspiring meetings, a relaxing weekend break or a smiley summer holiday.
Originally built in 1776, as the 'Mansion House', we've lovingly refurbished the hotel to reflect its nautical past, while adding typical du Vin panache. Original stone stairs and classical columns greet you, with flickering ship's lanterns lighting the way. The courtyard's sail-like awning invites you to dine under the stars. The comfy sofas, and low beams of the Snug welcome you for an aperitif, cocktail, or nightcap. Our expert Sommelier in the Laroche tasting room will guide you, while our delicious hearty, locally sourced dishes in our trademark bistro will please you. Our unique function rooms, 'Port' and 'Starboard', are perfect for celebrating, meeting, or private dining. Our 38 smart and stylish bedrooms are perfect to lay anchor for the night, with their soft Egyptian cotton bed linen, huge custom-made beds, handsprung mattresses, fluffy towels and robes, drenching monsoon showers or roll top baths. Go on, push the boat out at Hotel du Vin Poole.


help you plan your big day in every detail, your own wedding organiser. Their job? To understand and bring your ideas to life (and make suggestions if needed) and then make it all come together on the big day - from arranging consultations with florists and hair stylists to designing the perfect menu and dressing the room.
Formal or informal, funky or traditional, we'll ensure the food and drink complement your wedding perfectly. What would you like? A five-course wedding breakfast, a casual and informal buffet, a completely bespoke dining menu and wine list specifically created for the occasion by our resident Chef and Sommelier?
The choice is yours, but whatever you decide, come the big day, we'll work diligently behind the scenes to make sure everything runs like clockwork.
There are two private rooms for you to choose from: Port and Starboard. Port is our largest private dining room and is an elegantly finished room that retains many original features and benefits from natural daylight. Port can accommodate up to 32 people. Starboard is a slightly smaller room with unique decor, stunning original Georgian fireplace and two large sash windows with views out into the neighbouring church gardens allow the room to flood with natural daylight.
Ideal for more intimate weddings and celebrations seating up to 18 people. The Crow's Nest is a beautifully intimate space with comfortable chairs, soft lighting and a roaring fire. It accommodates up to 30 and is the perfect backdrop to pre-reception drinks and after party chill-outs.
Alternatively for larger weddings the Bistro can also be taken over and can accommodate ceremonies and wedding breakfasts for up to 90 guests. With French doors on to the large outdoor courtyard located to the rear of the hotel, the courtyard can be hired out exclusively for drinks receptions and alfresco dining, and provides the perfect backdrop for photo opportunities.
We work with you to make your special day just that. We have three packages - Simply du Vin, Celebrate du Vin and I du Vin, all of which offer the same exacting standards of service and quality, and include complimentary menu tasting for the Bride & Groom, room hire, silver cake knife, tea lights, place & menu cards and table plan. Then you can chose the variations on drinks included, style of food served and number of courses. It goes without saying you have a vast array of Champagnes and wines to choose from. We will of course, also tailor your day specifically to you, so no matter the request we will make your dream day come true at Hotel du Vin Poole.
If you choose to book the hotel for exclusive use the possibilities become endless. Think of it as a blank canvas, what it becomes is entirely up to you, just tell us what you need. You get your very own Hotel du Vin rooms and all, exclusively yours.
