This magnificent town-house hotel, set in five acres of beautiful English country gardens with lake, is remarkably close to the city centre. The Newling Ward family converted the 500 year-old building in 1965 and continue to own and run the hotel. The 30 bedrooms are individually styled, with many overlooking the lake and gardens, and the award-winning orangery style restaurant shares the same views. Enjoy breakfast, lunch, bar snacks, cream teas and dinner served in a choice of dining areas.

Stayed overnight to attend a function nearby. Although a wedding and other small functions were taking place in the hotel (we were informed of the events and given enough notice prior to our stay), we were given a lovely room with beautiful views well away from the noise.

A two night stay was bought here for my Christmas present. When we arrived the hotel was busy with entertainment in many of their function rooms spilling out into the lobby with everyone having a good time. Pleasantly our room couldn’t hear the noise so by time we retired

What is Sunday Lunch like?
Dear Roger2585 Generally we offer a traditional Sunday lunch with roast beef and all the trimmings. We have a varied menu and a 2 course or 3 course pricing option. This style of menu will recommence on Sunday 4th January 2015. For this coming Sunday our menu retains a festive twist.
