Best Loved Hotels

Despite the very best efforts of the Luftwaffe, Victorian "improvers" and Twentieth Century town planners, there's hardly a corner of Great Britain without a notable landmark to bring history alive, and this includes many of Best Loved hotels. From the footsteps of the legendary Dambusters to London Art Deco, from an Elizabethan manor to beautifully restored coaching inns, our selection of historic hotels has something for everyone.

HISTORIC HOTELS

PETWOOD HOTEL, LINCOLNSHIRE

Built as the country home of an Edwardian baroness, the Petwood was also wartime Officers' Mess of the legendary 617 "Dambusters" Squadron. With the aviation memorabilia-adorned Squadron Bar and the hotel's newly-restored Petwood gardens to explore, this is a perfect retreat just 30 minutes' drive from historic Lincoln.

Glenmorangie House - photo

A stunning Highlands escape overlooking the Moray Forth and a short distance from the famed distillery. This is the authentic taste of historical hospitality in a home, not a hotel. You will not need keys for your room, or a TV to distract you from the views and the company. Real fires, rare drams, walks on the beach, sumptuous dining and unforgettable Highland hospitality.

Stately red brick Elizabethan manor house situated on a 500-acre estate of Shropshire working farmland and ancient oak woods. The four rooms in the Manor House proper are particularly evocative: traditionally styled with antique furniture, silk curtains and chandeliers perfectly complement the intriguing period features such as fireplaces, mullioned windows, small intriguing alcoves, oak floors (some sloping) and wood beams and panelling (along with at least one secret door).

TOWN HALL HOTEL, LONDON

Town Hall Hotel - photo

The Town Hall is an exuberant piece of Edwardian architecture built for the Bethnal Green council in 1910. A 1930s extension added the magnificent Art Deco interiors which have made the building so attractive as a film location (think Atonement, Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and TV's Poirot among many others). Following a meticulous renovation which won accolades from architectural preservationists far and wide, sleek and stylish Town Hall looks better than ever, and you can enjoy staying in this stylish and historic building.
