We had a fabulous stay at Stoke Park Hotel recently. The team there is very welcoming and friendly. We stayed in the Pavilion, which is a separate building also housing the pool, gym and spa. We were dining in the main house and they provided transport between the buildings as it was raining, which was much appreciated.
The dinner was delicious and breakfast was superb! The hotel has extensive sports facilities including indoor, grass and clay tennis courts, a 2 story gym, hot yoga room, classes and a golf course. There are a selection of meeting rooms most with direct access to the grounds, so perfect for summer events.
Ashorne Hill Hotel is an interesting mix of the historic manor with its original features and the purpose built conference centre. There are 38 meeting rooms and 110 bedrooms and with 35 acres of land there is lots of space for team building.
Macdonald Alveston Manor in Stratford-upon-Avon is a lovely hotel. A real mix of historic elegance and modern comfort. After a very relaxing stay I wouldn’t hesitate to put it forward for meetings of up to 150 or as a base to explore the town. The bedroom was very comfortable and quiet, the food delicious and the staff were all very friendly and welcoming.
Dartington Hall Hotel, Totnes, is set around a medieval Courtyard in a 1200 acre estate with 25 acres of grade II listed gardens so is perfect for team building activities. The whole venue is packed full of original features. There are 50 bedrooms and 10 meeting rooms, and the dining rooms serve delicious, locally sourced food too.
If you are looking for a modern venue offering something a bit different, we could look at the Jaguar Experience for you. It is located just outside Birmingham and has contemporary conference facilities, ranging from a boardroom for 22 to a room for 300 in theatre style to the Reception hall pictured below. As well as holding your meeting here they also provide Manufacturing Tours and driving experiences to make your day truly memorable.
