A short stay in Georgian elegance

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 13, 2007

The stay at Sopwell House was as part of a large work event - which included a two night stay over and a large gala dinner on a Saturday evening.

I was housed in apartment 14, which was an interesting residence - large bedroom and bathroom, not to forget the lounge/kitchenette and the small terrace outside the bedroom.

It was comfortable enough - although I would say that I had some problem deciding if the towels were clean or not clean. I also thought the breakfast offering was a little mechcanically produced. The coffee was good.

Unique Quality: The eraliest mention of Sopwell House seems to be in a 1603 deed which refers to "New Barnes" the home of Richard Sadlier. In 1665, the Duchess Alice took up residence there during the great plague and the fire of London. In 1670, Sir Harbottle Grimston (Earl of Verulam) bought the house and at the beginning of the 18th century Edward Strong, a master mason, leased the house. In 1902 Prince Louis of Battenberg leased the house as a country home. The house was converted to a hotel in 1969. It changed ownership again in 1986, and is now the property of Abraham Bejerano.
