BRITAIN'S LEADING collection of
LUXURY and BOUTIQUE HOTELs
Great hospitality is the key to Pride of Britain’s longstanding reputation for excellence in hotel-keeping. The consortium is a not for profit organisation that belongs to its member hotels, a collection of 50 independent, mostly family-owned, luxury hotels in some of the most beautiful locations around the British Isles. Each has its own distinctive style and character but all of them are run by people with a passion for great hospitality, verging on the obsessional.
The management of the consortium reports to a board made up of member hoteliers, currently chaired by David Morgan-Hewitt, Managing Director at The Goring.
Hotels range in size from just 12 rooms at Maison Talbooth in Essex, a member since the consortium was formed in 1982, to over 140 at Luton Hoo in Bedfordshire, the setting for a number of famous films. Many of the properties in Pride of Britain stand in extensive grounds, such as Hartwell House in Buckinghamshire, Gravetye Manor in Sussex and The Lake in mid Wales. A few overlook the sea, including The Grand Jersey, Bailiffscourt and The Thurlestone which stands above a stretch of National Trust coastline near Salcombe. For those seeking quiet solace, Lords of the Manor and Barnsley House are just two perfect suggestions in the Cotswolds, while the more active will enjoy Calcot Manor or The Dormy House. The Torridon in the Scottish Highlands is our most northerly member (apart from MV Hebridean Princess when at sea) soon to be joined by Airds at Port Appin which was elected in December. Three London hotels complete the set: The Goring, The Capital and The Arch.
When you book to stay at a Pride of Britain hotel you have the assurance that it has been inspected and approved by its fellow members of the consortium. And if you decide to call our office on 0800 089 3929 your enquiry will be handled by one of a small team of professionals who know the hotels well, can check availability and offer you the best rates.
