Hotel & Accommodation
Surrounded by 50 acres of grounds and gardens in the Staffordshire countryside, Hoar Cross Hall sits at the end of a winding driveway. Built in 1871, the Elizabethan manor house was commissioned by Hugo Meynell Ingram, whose family presence is still evident in the form of hand carved monograms in the ballroom, and has Jacobean overtones by way of turreted water towers, lofty gables, 48 chimneys and mullioned windows. The hotel has 96 bedrooms, all with the traditional sumptuousness of a stately home.
Dining at Hoar Cross Hall is a spectacular event with breakfast held in the former ballroom, characterised by William Morris wallpaper, Sienna marble mantelpieces, and the 19th century ‘wedding cake’ ceiling. Lunch and dinner however are located in the contemporary setting of the Hugo's restaurant.
