CHARACTER & STYLE
In keeping with the building's history as a coaching inn, it's warm and cosy, with a laidback feel. Dim lighting, gorgeous stone fireplaces and rugs add to the snug factor. It's believed that Oliver Cromwell stayed here before the Battle of Worcester and addressed the Parliamentary Army from what is now the Cromwell Room - the place excudes history through and through.
The staff are welcoming and affable, providing good, friendly service. There's a well-equipped spa, complete with a swimming pool with a retractable roof, steam room and saunas. Wellness facilities also include a nail bar, treatment rooms and gym. There's a pleasant garden tucked away at the back of the property; there's even a helipad, too.
