From conveniently located town-centre hotels to exquisite country houses, Warwickshire has a great selection of luxury hotels, all of which are within easy reach of the country's renowned tourist destinations, such as picturesque Stratford-upon-Avon and Royal Leamington Spa. All major towns also have direct train links to central London, and the county has easy access to the national motorway network via the M40 and other key routes.
Exclusive Stately Homes
Few houses in England are quite as grand as Charlecote Park, which lies just a few miles to the east of Stratford-upon-Avon and dates back more than 400 years. The house, a Grade I-Listed building, is surrounded by nearly 200 acres of beautiful grounds and is noted for its imposing Great Hall, featuring a stupendous barrel-vaulted ceiling. It's also just a short drive from luxury hotels in and around Warwick and Stratford-upon-Avon, offering everything from spa treatments to gourmet food.
No visit to this area of England would be complete without booking tickets to see at least one Shakespearean play at the renowned Royal Shakespeare Company. Based in Stratford-upon-Avenue, the venue welcomes hundreds of thousands of theatre fans every year, and is within walking distance of many elegant restaurants and a number of luxury hotels, such as the Mercure Stratford-upon-Avon Shakespeare Hotel, housed in an exceptional Tudor building.
History Meets Modern Day Sophistication
Stratford-Upon-Avon is, of course, famous for The Bard himself, but there’s plenty to see around this beautiful part of the country. Harvard House is a spectacular Elizabethan landmark purchased by successful businessman John Rogers. His grandson, John Harvard, is credited with founding one of the world's pre-eminent higher education institutions, Harvard College of Harvard University in Massachusetts, in 1636. And sitting right next to these historical riches are plenty of modern hotels offering the very best in luxury accommodation. The Stratford is a sophisticated four star establishment with emphasis on the visitor experience, exceptional fine dining and uniquely decorated rooms, all with the latest technology, such as WiFi and in-room entertainment.
Warwickshire has a proud medieval heritage filled with castles and crenelations. While it may not have played a key role in the Wars of the Roses, the Hilton Warwick/Stratford-upon-Avon hotel is a modern-day marvel, noted for its immaculate rooms and excellent conference facilities.
