He went on to establish the popular Hotel du Vin chain in 1994, which made him a multi-millionaire 10 years later when he and his business partner sold the company for £66m.

Zoe Monk, editor of Boutique Hotelier magazine, says that the secret of Robin's success is his "ability to spot where the market is heading and identify gaps in the hospitality sector". She adds: "He creates trends and experiences that tap into a new mindset... after noticing what was missing from the mainstream market."
