Why We Love It

  • The hotel originated as a priory for an Order of Benedictine Nuns until 2009 and still maintains a Gothic style throughout
  • Worcester city centre and its 11th-century cathedral is 15 minutes’ drive away, and the Malvern Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty are a 20-minute drive
  • The Walled Gardens at Croome Court, Hanbury Hall and Gardens and Eastnor Castle are all less than 30 minutes’ drive away

Overview

Set within 26 acres of Worcestershire countryside, Stanbrook Abbey Hotel is a former monastery that dates back to the 16th century and is steeped in history. "Guests will always find a quiet, private space to relax" amid its stone cloisters and Gothic stained-glass windows, says The Daily Telegraph.

One of the highlights of this Grade II-listed building is the bell tower, which offers views of the surrounding gardens and countryside.

Stanbrook Abbey Hotel is 15 minutes' drive from the centre of Worcester, which has an 11th-century cathedral, and 20 minutes' drive from the Malvern Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Commandery, an extensive war museum in Charles II's former headquarters during the last battle of the Civil War, is also 20 minutes’ drive away.

The Walled Gardens at Croome Court, Hanbury Hall and Gardens and Eastnor Castle are all less than 30 minutes’ drive away.

The on-site restaurant, offers daily breakfast, afternoon tea (pre-book to avoid disappointment) and dinner. Alternatively, George's Bar, with its floor-to-ceiling windows and views out over the front lawn, offers light snacks.

Additional facilities include an underground games room and a snooker room.

With a nod to the Gothic arches prominent throughout the building, each of the rooms feature arch-shaped padded lilac headboards. Some rooms also feature mullioned windows.

Wi-Fi is free.

Retains the feel of its history as a convent with the modern addition being a functional part of the building sympathetically blended in. The atmosphere is exceptional and the service and friendliness of the staff is exceptional.
Other Comments
This venue is exceptional due to its history. If anyone is looking for a wedding venue this is the best I have ever come across, it must be seen to be believed. It has everything, the chapel the nuns used, bride and groom suits for preparation, incredible atmosphere. This hotel is one of the best venues I have stayed at and we will definitely make a return visit. Must have afternoon tea.
