Judges nominate Manor House as best golf hotel in England
The Manor House Hotel and Golf Club has been nominated as ‘England’s Best Golf Hotel’ in the prestigious World Golf Awards.
The luxurious venue, which features 18 holes of stunning golf set in 365 acres of Wiltshire countryside, has long been regarded as one of the top stay-and-play courses in the UK, regularly featuring in ‘Top 100 Golf Courses in England’ polls.
Its hotel was last year upgraded to a five black-star rating by the official AA Hotel Services – a high-status award only given to the finest properties in the country. The hotel also boasts a Michelin-starred restaurant, the Bybrook.
Dating back to the 14th century and described as a “real gem of a hotel” in the AA report, The Manor House is situated in Castle Combe, near Bath – one of the most picturesque villages in England – and its facilities include a collection of 48 bedrooms and suites.
Golfers can stay in the height of luxury when they visit The Manor House Hotel and Golf Club and all at surprisingly affordable prices, with golf and hotel packages starting from £142 per person.
The World Golf Awards – which are a part of the World Travel Awards, a prestigious event now in its 21st year – aims to celebrate and reward excellence in golf tourism, world class courses & golf destinations.
Golf tourism is an increasingly a vital segment in the global travel and tourism marketplace, with an estimated 600 million golfer visits taking place in 2014 to the 32,000 golf courses and resorts worldwide.
Stephen Browning, general manager at The Manor House, said: “We are delighted to be nominated as the best golf hotel in England in the World Golf Awards – the nomination is a fantastic reward for all our dedicated staff, who do such fantastic work.
“It’s our aim at The Manor House to provide a memorable, high-quality golf and hotel experience to our guests, so it is nice to see our efforts recognised in that regard.
“We now look forward to finding out if we have won, though simply being nominated is, of course, a tremendous honour, and one we are all justly proud of.”
The Manor House Hotel and Golf Club is, along with the Mannings Heath Golf Club in Horsham, West Sussex, owned by the Exclusive Golf. Both venues are featured in the latest ‘Top 100 Golf Courses in England’ standings.
Exclusive Golf was formed in 2010 and is a part of Exclusive Hotels, a prestigious group of individual, stylish hotels in the south of England, located in stunning surroundings and presenting a luxurious tranquillity in beautiful English locations.
