Hotel du Vin Glasgow Review

Once the legendary One Devonshire Gardens, frequented by such celebrities as Luciano Pavarotti and Elizabeth Taylor, the Hotel Du Vin Glasgow is still a destination for those in search of luxury. Made up of a group of Victorian houses on a tree-lined street, the hotel is all about elegance, from the sophisticated drawing room to the individually decorated guest rooms with flowing draperies, Egyptian linens, and mahogany furnishings like four-poster beds. The stained-glass windows on the stairwells are an impressive reminder of the glamorous life. The stylish bistro serves such delights as poached lobster and air-dried duck followed by a warm chocolate tart with pear sorbet. The menu lists more than 600 wines and 300 whiskies.

    Family Rendezvous, Honouring Mr. C. R. Mackintosh

    Just returned (to London, for additional meetings at the Four Seasons Park Lane, via 'first class' rail) from a most memorable family weekend honouring one of my esteemed Scottish ancestors, Mr. Charles Rennie Mackintosh. Delightful time, particularly with the mrs. being able to coordinate her flight/work schedules to accompany me from London (via 'FC' rail, again) for the family weekend festivities.

    This property was a first for me, as almost all of my Scottish times from childhood have entailed staying (living) with various family and relatives; particularly, a most generous family member's country retreat. The Hotel Du Vin did not disappoint us, from arrival to departure.

    Our chosen lodging at the hotel was a Town Suite (charmingly named, the 'Chateau Bauduc') and no complaints. [Should add, this particular hotel was highly recommended by a fun-loving and long-time Glasgow dwelling cousin.]

    Will confess that most of our weekend stay was spent away from the property at various receptions and dinners with far-flung family, friends -- and some select C. R. Mackintosh scholars and disciples. Upon departure from the hotel, promises were made to return in not too distant future.

    Many thanks, Hotel Du Vin staff. Savour your times in a most special and cherished part of the world. (Highly biased, to be sure.)
