The hotel chain was founded in Winchester in 1994 by Gerard Basset and Robin Hutson, who had both previously worked at the Chewton Glen hotel where Basset was the head sommelier and Hutson the Managing Director. The name "Hotel du Vin" was a reference to Basset's wine expertise. At the time Basset was a Master Sommelier; he went on to become a Master of Wine (1998).

KSL Capital purchased the Hotel du Vin chain and the Malmaison hotel chain early in 2013, before selling both hotel brands to Frasers Hospitality for £363m in 2015.[1]


Subsequent hotels were established in other locations including Brighton, Tunbridge Wells, Bristol, Birmingham,[2] Harrogate, Henley-on-Thames, Cheltenham, Glasgow, York, Cambridge, Exeter, Newcastle,[3] Poole, Wimbledon, Edinburgh and St Andrews. As of 2015, Hotel du Vin were operating sixteen hotels across the UK in university locations, cathedral towns and cities.[4]
