A first-class celebration!

A first-class celebration
We are now in the midst of the results season when teenagers find out the results of their GCSEs and A levels and students celebrate graduation and professional exams such as law and accountancy finals.

Positive exam results are a great excuse for a special family celebration: to get together and congratulate sons and daughters or grandchildren on the results of many years of hard work and revision. A private dining room at a Hand Picked Hotel can offer the perfect setting: a splendid, intimate room with enough privacy for a relaxed party atmosphere.

Private celebrations are increasingly popular at our hotels. Our guests can choose from hosting a lunch or dinner party in venues which range from the beautiful Orangery at Buxted Park Hotel, Ashdown Forest, East Sussex, to the magical Moorish style of The Alhambra Room, inspired by the Alhambra Palace in Granada, at Rhinefield House Hotel in the New Forest in Hampshire, or the grandeur of Crathorne Hall Hotel, on the edge of the moors at Yarm, North Yorkshire. Each of our 19 award-winning country house hotels across the British Isles, including Jersey and Guernsey, has highly individual, stylish dining rooms, many with striking period features and architectural detail. We have recently acquired St Pierre Park Hotel & Golf Resort in Guernsey and Bailbrook House Hotel in Bath, where we have just completed a £10 million restoration.

Our dedicated events team will help you plan a totally bespoke celebration, offering an inclusive dining package, plus special touches such as a magician or live music, and use of the terrace or lawns for a pre-dinner glass of Champagne. If there are lots of guests to invite, you could host a country house party by booking exclusive use. Seiont Manor Hotel in Snowdonia, with its 28 bedrooms, is a good size for a group of friends and family to stay overnight.

Many of our hotels were once family-owned country houses and we are keen that our guests feel that the hotel is their private retreat – perfect for a special occasion, whatever the reason for celebrating.
