The recently refurbished Wivenhoe House hotel is everything I hoped it would be. The venue is stunning, the service is excellent and the food is out of this world. Great value for money also. I will definately visit again and will be telling all my friends about this fabulous find!

If you're looking for something that is different from a chain, this hotel is for you. A classy mix of individually furnished boutique rooms and more standard alternatives, Wivenhoe Park caters for all tastes and budgets. Our room was extremely large and very well furnished, over looking the university parkland and sunken garden. Service was impeccable & the food in the Signature restaurant was excellent - a quality fine dining experience. Ideally located for the university, commercial park and knowledge gateway this gem does not deserve to be kept a secret...

Having undergone an extensive refurbishment and a new build programme, Wivenhoe House stands proud once again in the grounds of Wivenhoe Park. The main house has 16 rooms and suites currently available and 24 additional rooms will be available from September. Our room was large and very comfortable with a sofa, two arm chairs and an occasional table with two additional chairs. It also had a good sized bathroom with a huge 'victorian' bath as well as a large walk-in shower. Dinner in the Signatures restaurant was wonderful - a true fine dining experience!
