Dating back to the 15th century, this delightful hotel is peacefully located in beautiful parkland designed by 'Capability' Brown. Spacious, individually designed bedrooms and stylish public areas are beautifully furnished with antique and period pieces. The different wings of the house - Tudor, Georgian and Victorian - all have their distinct identity. For a true sense of the past, why not stay in the Queen's Suite, where Elizabeth I slept in 1575. Afternoon tea is served in the impressive Great Hall, Tudor Bar and Lounge and dinner is available in the award-winning Cedar Restaurant, with its original beams and stonework, an impressive inglenook fireplace, and candlelit tables dressed in fine white linen. The hotel has its own cinema and The Grayshot Spa features an ozone pool, treatment rooms and fitness studio.
