Stay at the stately Champney's hotel surrounded by beautiful Hertfordshire countryside


WHAT’S IT LIKE? A relaxing mix of stately home and stylish boutique hotel, surrounded by beautiful countryside.

The old stately home as undergone huge renovations to become a spa resort with the focus on creating a relaxing atmosphere for guests.

ROOMS ANY GOOD? Very much so, with themes and prices to suit all. The decor is in keeping with tradition.

Our room was very spacious for two people, with lovely views over the countryside.

Heaps of rural charm with lovely home comfort touches including complimentary bottles of water, bath products, robes, TV and free wifi.

EAT THERE OR GRAB A PIZZA? Don’t venture out. The restaurant serves everything from healthy salads and fish – which are marked out as low-calorie options on the menu – through to luxuries such as steak and roast lamb.

There is also a lounge to venture on to with a glass or wine or a cup of tea, and at weekend a pianist plays you to sleep before you head back to your room.

WHAT ELSE? The spa facilities are second to none. Multiple pools, an outdoor jacuzzi, steam and sauna rooms, indoor hydrotherapy pools and

relaxation rooms with dimmed lighting and water beds. Also, if you’re into fitness, there is a brand new cycle studio and urban gym.

SO YOU’D GO BACK? Yes. If you’re looking for a getaway where you don’t have to leave the hotel to enjoy yourself. The staff are incredibly friendly and you can’t possibly leave without feeling much more relaxed than before.

WHAT’S THE DAMAGE? Rates are from £59.54pp a night based on two sharing. See or call 01442 291000.
