A gorgeous Georgian manor house that's now a wonderful hotel, Swinfen Hall is an absolute treat. Friendly staff throughout make you feel special and the public rooms are just amazing, with many mementoes of the family that used to own the property on show in the bar and dining rooms. Our bedroom (the cheapest double but still pricey!) was spacious with great views over the main drive and a good-sized bathroom. The bed was very comfortable and we had free apples, water and biscuits. Tea and coffee facilities were available in the room including a cafetiere and proper milk in a flask rather than those awful plastic pots.
We didn't eat there in the evening but breakfast was impressive - some continental offerings and then a choice of various cooked dishes. Nice to go to a place without the buffet!
The grounds are lovely and include a deer park. We borrowed some boots and went out for a walk around them after breakfast.
Perhaps the only downside of our stay was the bathroom was a bit dated but it was clean - and that is a very minor downside!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Swinfen Hall Hotel is a beautiful Georgian manor house set in 100 acres of parkland incorporating formal gardens, a private deer park, wild hay meadows and woodland. Although the hotel has been described as 'an architectural gem' and is blessed with a wealth of historic features, we also embrace the creature comforts of the here and now. Flatscreen TVs, DVD players, IPOD docking stations and free wi-fi are standard in all our bedrooms alongside bathrobes, mineral water, a good selection of guest amenities and a well-stocked hospitality tray. In addition to our AA 2-rosette Four Seasons restaurant which is open for lunch and dinner, we have a Bar and Terrace menu for light snacks and offer a delicious traditional Afternoon Tea. We also have a magnificent oak-paneled Edwardian ballroom with a raised stage and fully-sprung dance floor, which is a wonderful venue for wedding receptions, presentations and private parties. We are proud to be an AA Inspectors Choice Red Star hotel - come and visit us and see what this means. Our little oasis of peace and calm lies on the A38, two miles south of the historic city of Lichfield, ½ a mile from the M6 toll road and only 20 minutes from the heart of Birmingham. ... more less
