A grand and historic country pile exuding traditional elegance with fine dining, spa and set in 110 acres of landscaped gardens - full English breakfast included


Down Hall Hotel & Spa is one of England's most established country house hotels. Dating back to 1322, this historic Italianate mansion is set in beautiful grounds and is perfect for those looking for a country getaway. The hotel's classic interiors, ornate ceilings and abundance of natural daylight make for a splendid change from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

The hotel's 98 traditional bedrooms are all individually designed to reflect the character of this historic property. Opt for a compact and comfortable Classic room in the mansion house building, upgrade to an Executive room in the West Wing for extra space in shades of brown and green, or go all-out by staying in a newly designed Deluxe room, located in the mansion house and featuring a calming colour scheme. Please note that Classic and Deluxe rooms have stair access only.

Not surprisingly, this grand hotel and spa comes with a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.

Down Hall's  AA Rosette-awarded Grill Room is the perfect place to enjoy a leisurely dinner in an utterly charming setting - picture dark wood furnishings, Italian wood flooring, elegant chandelier-style wall lights and opulent fabrics. The restaurant serves exciting dishes from a modern English menu which changes seasonally. Traditional English afternoon tea can be taken in the lounge and, during the summer months, the hotel can also prepare a picnic for you to take into the stunning Hertfordshire and Essex countryside.

Elsewhere, The Terrace is a scenic spot to relax overlooking the gardens, and the hotel's cocktail bar offers decadent tipples and a bar menu.


After a day of walking, indulge in a relaxing massage in the hotel's Eden Spa, with ESPA products at the heart of its facial and body treatment menu. There are four treatment rooms in total (three single rooms and one for couples). You'll also find a well-equipped Technogym fitness centre, a sauna and a steam room on site.

Use of the spa facilities are chargeable at £20 per person; treatments are also chargeable, and both must be pre-booked to avoid disappointment.


If you're tired of the traffic noise, shoulder-barging on the tube and general craziness of London, then you'll be happy to know you can be strolling around the landscaped gardens of Down Hall in just over an hour's drive. On the borders of Essex and Hertfordshire, Down Hall Hotel & Spa is conveniently located for Stansted airport, Harlow, Bishop's Stortford and Hatfield Heath, where the hotel can be found sitting prettily on 110 acres of grounds. The setting is perfect for a relaxing break - you'll find many golf courses nearby and plenty of countryside walks to enjoy.
