The hotel is located within 34 acres of Cannizaro Park and adjacent to Wimbledon Common sits close to the All England Club, the home of the Wimbledon Tennis Championships.

At present, the hotel offers several meeting spaces, including the ground floor Viscount Melville Suite with its own terraced garden.

Gary Davis, CEO of Hotel du Vin, said: "We are delighted to continue to grow our portfolio of hotels with the opening of our first hotel in the prestigious location of Wimbledon, London. Set within beautiful grounds, the hotel is well connected to central London, making it a great place for a leisure break, a business meeting or a wedding.

"We will invest a further £1m into the hotel over the coming months to bring our own style of chic accommodation and destination dining here and we look forward to becoming a vital and integral part of the local community," he added.

Cannizaro House dates back to 1819, having played host to Lord Tennyson, Oscar Wilde and even the last Maharajah of the Punjab. 

In April 2014, Hotel Du Vin opened a new property in St Andrews, Fife. Read a review here.
