The 4-star Manor Hotel in Hertfordshire offers boutique accommodation in the countryside, just 30 minutes from London. It is listed in The Times's Cool Hotel Guide, which praises its "elegant" style and "excellent service".
Tucked away at the end of a curved driveway in Elstree, the Tudor-style Victorian house is surrounded by 10 acres of manicured gardens. It has a large terrace with views over a pond, and there's a big chess set on the lawn.
The hillside manor retains many of its original architectural features, including the dramatic wooden fireplace in the centre of the grand reception hall. The décor features neutral colours, rich fabrics and ornamental pieces.
The Cavendish Restaurant, which has two AA Rosettes, serves modern British dishes. The Terrace Bar has views over the gardens and has panoramic views including London on a clear day. It's an ideal spot for afternoon tea with a glass of champagne.
There are 49 rooms: Standard Double Rooms are in the contemporary wing of the hotel. Most Superior Rooms (also in the contemporary wing) have direct access to the terraced garden area and views of the hotel grounds. Deluxe Rooms are in the main house and some have views of London. Some Suites also have views of the capital. Wi-Fi is free throughout.
The property has been featured in The Guardian, The Daily Telegraph, Country Living and the London Evening Standard, as well as television programmes and films. Previous guests include Peter Sellers, Tom Cruise and John Cleese.
