Great room, huge potential
I work in the industry and I know how difficult those functions are stressful and time planning and consuming.
Dewi and his team were challenged with my requests, but nothing was too much trouble. The food was good and tasty, got to be honest, they exceeded my expectations, but it is important to keep it simple.
They know what they are doing and got Jenny - my wedding coordinator on my side to liaise so it is easier.
The room itself is sterile. no need to explain that you have to decorate it and light it up - it is add cost on your side, but it is worth it.
Here the room in video how it looks.... enjoy and you should trust them and go for it. I have done my research due to the fact that I am a caterer myself and those are the best value to money and location / overall experience.
other places are pricey and old fashion, too expensive and fancy food,
You got to be honest with yourself and keep it simple, traditional and they can do the ceremony too... so why going elsewhere... well done guys at HDV

Profit over experience
It’s a shame the hotel put profit over our experience and booked another wedding, and another function, at the same time as ours.
This overwhelmed the team who worked so hard against the clock. Despite this, details were missed that I’d discussed multiple times previously.
Overall our guests absolutely loved our wedding and the venue, but there were a lot of comments on how inconsistent the service was. Not just during our wedding but during the entire 4 night stay.
If using this venue just know the staff will do everything in their power to make your day special, but the hotel will prioritise their profits.
Your staff couldn't do enough to help and the food was excellent.
The room was perfect for us and it was a wonderful way to celebrate our marriage ."
“We also would like to thank you for the continual support and guidance you personally provided us with to keep us reassured in the lead up to our big day. “
“All in all everyone at Du Vin Brighton did their part to make our day a memorable one and we look forward to enjoying many more visits. “
Everything was Perfect
All the best

Memorable Wedding Weekend
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and the team at the HdV Brighton for a superb effort on Saturday, hosting our wedding celebration. It was a thoroughly painless experience, made so by the professional and caring team that you have in the hotel. Everyone was incredibly kind and helpful throughout, offering up assistance without needing to be asked, and doing so with a smile on their faces. The canapes were delicious and plentiful, and the buffet was very well received indeed – lots of positive comments from our guests. The bar staff were incredibly helpful, on several occasions really going out of their way to serve. And of course, you were fantastic too – it was great to have you around all day for those little things that need someone to help with. You were a huge help and we both thank you for everything. I think it should also be said that there were a large number of guests who were impressed with both the venue and the service. Also, the rooms were great – ours was particularly lovely.
All in all we had a completely memorable weekend, and the HdV played no small part in that – so thank you!

Perfect Intimate Wedding
Bev was brilliant and from the minute we were introduced we knew we were being taken care of. She was attentive when showing us around and we were impressed with her honesty and expert knowledge when we pitched forward some of our ideas.
On the day itself both Bev and Lilly were on hand to help. They took charge when we looked a bit lost and confused and made sure everything ran to order. Lilly was absolutely fantastic. From start to finish she worked extremely hard to make sure everyone had the right food and drink and we even got her dancing to grease lightening in the evening and she has some serious moves!! We loved her and she is a real asset to the team at HDV
Overall we had the best day, beautiful venue, top notch food (most divine creme brulee and evening buffet) and wonderfully brought together by the team at HDV.
My perfect Day
