Whatley Manor opened this year as one of the country's finest private hotel. Until now, the sophisticated, internationally travelled clientele to whom it will appeal has had a limited choice of hotels of a truly international standard outside London. Whatley Manor, tucked in the Wiltshire countryside just 30 minutes north of Bath, is set to change this.
The hotel concept is relaxation - a place of escape from the pace and rhythm of everyday life. The vision has been to create a hotel that is a destination in its own right, a hotel with a luxurious yet understated ambiance.
Set within 12 acres of timeless English gardens, Whatley Manor has just 15 rooms and 8 suites, all individually decorated in an eclectic mix, both contemporary and classic with an overriding aura of style. There are 2 restaurants giving a choice of formal or informal dining experiences; a boardroom and luxurious 40 seat cinema; and a spa.
The spa, Aquarias is one of the most exclusive spa experiences in the UK. Based on the European bathing culture, Aquarias is a true spa complete with tepidarium, a sequence of thermal cabins, a magnificent hydrotherapy pool, VIP suite and wave dream sensory room.
The entire hotel can be booked for the ultimate in hospitality. Whatley Manor is a true original in an increasingly predictable world.
