AA Silver Star Award

Nestled in 110 acres on the Hertfordshire and Essex border, Down Hall Hotel & Spa is an impressive 4-star Italianate country house. The interiors are equally striking: the ornate lounges and galleries are adorned with feature antiques, light-flooded windows and chandeliers. With easy connections to central London (45 minutes away by train) and Stansted just down the road, even city dwellers can enjoy secluded country house grandeur without a long journey.

The 99 bedrooms are spacious and comfortable, reflecting the grandeur and history of the property. Feature Rooms are particularly luxurious with elegant antique beds and large windows offering views over the magnificent landscaped gardens.

The AA Rosette-winning Grill Room restaurant serves up modern English cooking prepared with fresh ingredients from Down Hall’s own vegetable garden. The ornate dark wood tables, large windows and Italian wood flooring offer the perfect backdrop for enjoying perfectly cooked classics such as roast chicken tarragon and slow cooked pork belly. The cocktail bar is a great spot for light snacks, an aperitif or night cap, and the fun moves out onto the terrace in warm weather. We also highly recommend the traditional afternoon tea, served either in the Main House or in Ibbetson’s tearoom in the gardens.

Exploring those gardens is a delight (look out for the Cedars of Lebanon), and the hotel can arrange for a luxurious picnic if given two days notice. Indulge in a game of croquet, tennis, giant chess, or head for the gym, steam room and sauna. The new Eden Spa offers an impressive hydrotherapy pool, as well as a host of ESPA body treatments and facials, manicures, pedicures and beauty treatments in its four treatment rooms (including a couple’s room).
