Good Hotel Guide Review
Famous politicians and luminaries have pow-wowed and partied in this country pile, once the rural retreat of press baron Lord Beaverbrook. A large white building on a Surrey hillside, it has been transmuted into a lavish modern hotel. Its illustrious past is celebrated with bedrooms named after famous visitors ranging from Winston Churchill to Elizabeth Taylor. It has a well-stocked library, glamorous Roaring Twenties-style bar and Art Deco screening room. A grand staircase flows up to floral-patterned bedrooms with an original fireplace, a luxury bathroom; large windows or a balcony look over the downs. Garden House rooms are funkier, with woodland views. Dine on beautifully presented Japanese cuisine or seasonal, Italian-inspired dishes. A state-of-the art spa opens in late 2018.
