THE ELITE EXPERIENCE

Magnificent historic buildings

D I S T I N C T LY D I F F E R E N T

Since 1985 Elite Hotels has invested in magnificient historic buildings and carefully restored them to their original splendour. Boasting impressive architecture and unique period features, they all have a colourful and fascinating past - visited by royalty, aristocracy, world leaders, VIPs and stars of stage and screen - yet are very individual. The Grand Eastbourne, England’s only coastal five-star hotel, affectionately known as The White Palace, has breathtaking views of the sea and Beachy Head. Our outstanding country house hotels are grand mansions with Capability Brown and Gertrude Jekyll designed landscapes and picturesque settings that include the ‘enchanted forest’ which inspired AA Milne’s Winnie the Pooh stories. What they share in common is they all provide the perfect backdrop for business or pleasure - which one will you choose?

Our four hotels have all been awarded the prestigious Certificate of Excellence by the world’s largest travel website. Based on millions of reviews and feedback from travellers, the TripAdvisor accolade is only given to hotels, restaurants and attractions that rank in the top 10% worldwide.

Whichever hotel you choose, you’re guaranteed to be surrounded by enchanting views. We have estates created by two of England’s most influential 18th and 19th century landscape garden designers – Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown and Gertrude Jekyll – and our gardeners have painstakingly restored features included in their original plans. From manicured Italian gardens to woodland, lakes, tranquil water gardens, intriguing secret gardens, one of the longest uninterrupted views in Hampshire and the tallest Wellingtonia in Sussex, our grounds are full of character and provide year-round interest. Marking their significant historical importance, we host annual garden open days in aid of the National Garden Scheme charity. Our seaside hotel faces sweeping lawns and gardens and is on the doorstep of England’s newest National Park.

RENOWNED ARCHITECT

Luton Hoo was a landmark project for Capability Brown who was hired by two successive owners of the estate. It was one of his largest and most significant undertakings, second only to Blenheim Palace in terms of size and investment.
