Why we love Hanbury Manor

A jewel for relaxed golf and spa breaks in the heart of Hertfordshire

Marriott Hanbury Manor

A Marriott Hotel & Country Club, Hanbury Manor has been a firm favourite of spa goers looking for a relaxed destination that combines heritage with seasoned, easy going hospitality. A family friendly destination that also manages to hit the right notes for a romantic stay or a golf break, it's good value and a great experience. Here are just a few of the reasons we love it.

"All staff were brilliant! Extremely polite and helpful. We had complimentary champagne for my boyfriends birthday which was such a lovely, thoughtful act from the staff. Overall experience was lovely and we will be making this a regular evening treat." - Georgia

The historic hotel architecture

An impressive former manor house, Hanbury Manor has retained a sense of elegance and grandeur across the decades. Dating back to the 1800s, it was a family home for 113 years, with one of the later descendants having a keen interest in horticulture, establishing an impressive walled garden and famous orchards.

The golf course

The golf course was added in 1913, although it was initially only nine holes and purely for the use of the owner. Today, however, it is a 7,052 yard, par 72, PGA championship course set within the 200 acre estate. It's hosted numerous European Tour and Seniors Tour events, and is a central feature of your stay.

The peaceful and convenient hotel spa location

While Hanbury Manor sits quietly within the extensive estate, it's also incredibly convenient to access, and is a great base for exploring the surrounding area. Located in picturesque Hertfordshire, it's just off the A10 and junction 25 of the M25, within easy reach of London and popular nearby attractions such as:

  • Hanbury Hall and Gardens
  • Harry Potter Studios
  • Hatfield House
  • Hertford Castle
  • St Albans Cathedral

The modern spa

The spa and leisure facilities at Hanbury Manor have everything you need for modern wellbeing but with a Neo-Classical style twist. Columns surround the pool, which us a popular 17-metre space for swimming lengths or lazing in the water. There's also a gym, sauna, steam room and hot tub, treatment rooms and manicure stations. Therapists use a combination of Elemis, Aromatherapy Associates and Made for Life Organics in their collection of treatments.

The warm hotel welcome

Hanbury Manor is a Marriott hotel, and with that comes a conviviality as well as tried and tested expertise that makes you feel instantly at home. It's stylish but unpretentious and easy to unwind in - perfect weather it's a long-looked-forward-to getaway or a last-minute spa break.
