No expense has been spared in the renovation of this 17th-century Grade-II listed hotel, the first venture from the Signet Collection formed by ex-Beaverbrook hotel boss, Hector Ross.
Nicola Harding’s modern stylish décor blends seamlessly with the historic building’s creaky floorboards and nooks and crannies. Twists include a retro jukebox in the cosy, book-filled library, and door signs depicting King Henry ‘In the Tub’ (do not disturb) and a tennis racket-wielding Queen Anne ‘Out to Court’. A huge commissioned map of the area by illustrator Gwen Burns hangs in reception. The vibe is relaxed and buzzy.
