Warner Hotels specializes in short UK breaks designed exclusively for adults. Within the portfolio, there are 15 rural and coastal hideaways, all a stone’s throw from some of the country’s best-loved beauty spots. This is no off-the-shelf hotel chain, offering Grade I & II listed manor hotels through to picturesque villages by the sea.
Bed & Breakfast breaks offer all-you-can-eat breakfast. Dinner, Bed & Breakfast also includes three-course evening dining that’s big on flavour with plenty of choice and a reserved seat for the evening’s entertainment.
Guests are invited to do as much or as little as they please! There is plenty of culture and history surrounding each hotel, plus local walking and cycle paths courtesy of the partnership with ViewRanger. Within the estates, daily activities include archery, yoga, gin tasting, garden tours and spa treatments. Live music, shows and festivals guarantee a lively atmosphere with star turns by famous faces from the stage, screen and radio.
From a holiday camp on Hayling Island to 15 unique country and coastal properties Warner Leisure Hotels celebrates a 90-year milestone in 2022. The brainchild of Captain Harry Warner back in 1932, it has developed into a UK-based holiday group that specialises in short breaks exclusively for adults (over 21s).
The collection includes eight country house hotels in the English counties of Oxfordshire, Berkshire, Cheshire, Herefordshire, North Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire, Somerset and Warwickshire. There’s also a Victorian folly near Snowdonia in North Wales. Mostly Grade I and Grade II listed with period detail and heritage grounds and gardens, they’re a true who’s who in the history books. William of Orange, Henry VIII, Jane Seymour, William Pitt and the Queen Mother count among former guests.
Coastal hotels and villages
Five hotels and villages are located in Suffolk and on the Isle of Wight and Hampshire’s Hayling Island with sea views and easy access to some of Britain’s most celebrated beaches and coastlines.
Rooms range from suites with four posters and roll top baths to contemporary chalet-style lodges by the sea to suit all styles and budgets.
Music and shows
Live shows and dancing every night are Warner Leisure Hotels’ trademarks. Of the properties, 11 feature a purpose-built theatre and dance floor for concerts by visiting acts, choreographed shows from the hotel team, comedy, tribute sets and festivals. Three of the hotels have cabaret restaurants with dining and the show in the same venue. Visiting stars include Jane McDonald, Katherine Jenkins, Anton Du Beke and Erin Boag, Tony Hadley The Hairy Bikers and Trevor Nelson.
Every hotel has an indoor pool (Sinah Warren also has one outdoors) and there are complimentary activities within the grounds.
