On the approach to Hartwell House, the visitor sees first a magnificent pair of iron gates in the centre of a stone building. This has its origins as the menagerie, one of the original garden buildings by James Gibbs, which was expanded during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries to include stables and riding school. The building, now known as Hartwell Court, consists of 10 suites and 6 bedrooms, all decorated and furnished to the same high standards as those in the house. Some of the suites have galleried bedrooms and there are ground floor suites suitable for disabled guests. Hartwell Court has its own private garden, with original statues of Juno and Zeus from the early eighteenth century gardens at Hartwell. Several of the bedrooms have attractive garden views and some ground floor rooms have garden doors. Guests staying in these rooms have easy access to the meeting rooms and to the Hartwell spa and of course to the House itself. We can offer a choice of two delightful ground floor rooms in the hotel adjacent to the Soane Dining Room, which can be used for private luncheon and dinner parties. There is the Octagon Room, created in the style of a tented pavilion with views of the gardens which will accommodate 18 people, or the larger Doric Dining Room which has room for up to 30. There is a generous sized swimming pool surrounded by an arcade with comfortable reclining chairs, from which resident guests can enjoy views from the terrace. The Spa has a whirlpool spa bath, a steam room, and two saunas and a well equipped gym. We also have a Hairdressing and Beauty Salon and a solarium. In the gallery overlooking the pool are the Spa Bar & Spa Cafe serving drinks and light refreshments throughout the day. Daily delegates can enjoy the benefit of the Spa Bar and the Spa Cafe.
