Welcome to the world of Elite Hotels

As the world grapples with the COVID-19 pandemic, it is touching the lives of each and every one of us. The wellbeing of our employees and guests is very much at the forefront of our minds at this time and accordingly, in-line with Government advice and their initiative to
“Stay at Home, Protect the NHS, Save Lives”,
we have made the emotional decision to temporarily close our Hotels until we are advised it is wise to re-open.

We fully appreciate this is hugely disappointing for all concerned, especially for those who were planning to celebrate a special occasion with us or to have a well-earned break.

Being an independent and charity-owned Company, our next steps need to be carefully planned to ensure that we come through these daunting times as swiftly and cleanly as we are able. To this end, we will re-open our doors as soon as it is safe to do so.

If you have an existing booking in the coming weeks, our teams will be in touch shortly, or alternatively please e-mail your selected Hotel directly.  Vouchers expiring at this time will be automatically extended by 3 months.  

Until then, our very best wishes and thank you to all for your continued support throughout these troubling days.

Graeme C Bateman, Managing Director

A small herd of wild deer grazing on the lawn...a grand colonnaded facade that recalls ancient Greece rather than the South of England...gardens designed by one of the great Victorian planters...and a White Palace that looks like a giant wave that’s been washed up on the beach and frozen in time...these are just a few of the first impressions guests experience when they arrive at our four highly individual hotels, whether for business or pleasure.  


Behind every door no two rooms or suites are alike. Each one has been decorated and furnished to offer the heights of luxury and their individual characteristics have been enhanced with period pieces and furnishings. The choice of accommodation is outstanding. They range from beautifully decorated and appointed individual rooms to our magnificent Master Suites, some of which include four-poster beds, whirlpool baths and some of the most beautiful views.

Meetings & Events

A business event at an Elite Hotel promises to be as successful as it will be memorable...Each of our five meeting and event venues provide stunning, historical settings.  Combined with modern amenities Elite Hotels provide today's business delegate with a unique portfolio of places to meet, greet and entertain...

Ashdown Park, Tylney Hall and Luton Hoo were all former mansion houses in the days when elegance and style was the order of the day.  Similarly, The Grand at Eastbourne was designed during the heyday of Victoriana, while Warren Weir on the banks of the River Lea, is modelled on the Arts and Craft era priding a business village feel to this state of the art venue.

Our long serving conference and events teams provide dedicated support throughout your event, from planning to completion, and are available to offer advice and direction. 

Tylney Hall in Hampshire, Ashdown Park in East Sussex and Luton Hoo in Bedfordshire are all outstanding examples of luxurious country house hotels which recall an age of elegant living that belongs to a bygone era. 

While The Grand in Eastbourne is the only 5-star hotel to be found on Britain’s coastline and harks back to the days when the Victorian upper classes retired to the south coast for the summer with their vast entourages.

What they all share are outstanding levels of comfort, facilities and service, which include, luxurious spas, outstanding business and banqueting facilities, award-winning gourmet dining, the list goes on...


There are a hundred and one ways to stage a spectacular wedding at Elite Hotels.

Reception and banqueting rooms include a baronial hall, converted chapel and a beautiful summer house overlooking a lake.  And with purpose built venues, and secluded buildings available at all hotels, exclusive and very private use is something we can offer for all sizes of wedding parties.

Spectacular dining options include banquets and buffets and everything in between with a range of catering options that include wedding packages to a la carte arrangements.

And our beautiful gardens and grounds, and period lounges, create memorable setting for those all important photos of the happy couple that will last them a lifetime.

Wining & Dining

Gourmet or bistro, formal or relaxed, a spectacular banquet or picnic on the lawns, the choice is yours at Elite Hotels, and the experience will always be memorable.

Each Head Chef has his own highly individual style but what unites them is their creative flair which is based on sourcing only the finest and freshest ingredients, often locally, and which has been recognised by leading food writers.

They work hand in hand with our sommeliers to make sure that our wine lists perfectly complement their respective menus, and vintages and new world wines are selected for both quality and value.
