Frustrated neighbours still blighted by noisy Hotel du Vin


Neighbours to the newest Hotel du Vin property in Wimbledon are not impressed after promises to keep noise at the hotel to a minimum appear to have been ignored.

Local residents living nearby to the former Cannizaro House in London are said to have complained of noise and nuisance coming from the property on more than a dozen occasions in the past month, despite reassurances from various managers at the hotel that they would change their practises.

Hotel du Vin applied for a late-night license last month, which was thrown out by Merton Council but concerned residents feel this had been completely ignored by the boutique hotel.

Local resident Struan Robertson said: “If anything the noise and nuisance is worse than it was before. The hotel has taken no notice of its own policies and undertakings around social responsibility. The impact on our unique environment of Wimbledon Common continues to be blighted by regular and loud music and raucous people in the car park, keeping us awake into the early hours.”

A new late-night license is now being considered by the council, forcing neighbours to ask the hotel to again take into consideration the wishes and concerns of these local residents.

“Our concerns are being ignored by the hotel – it is very debilitating,” added Struan.
