The main building was constructed in 1831 by Richard Greenall as the vicarage to St. Matthew's Church, and it is delightfully quaint with porthole windows in some of the bedrooms and a spiral staircase sweeping up to the impressive Tower Suite. The hotel has blended tradition with what it likes to think of as the new tradition of glamorous decadence and indulgence, and this perpetuates throughout the establishment, from the rooms to the restaurants, to the spa and beyond. In addition to 24-hour reception and check-out services and lift access, facilities available to guests at this 146-room, family-friendly spa hotel include a bar, restaurant and conference facilities. Furthermore, guests can take advantage of Internet access and room and laundry services for a fee. Extensive car parking facilities are available for guests arriving by car.

All of the en suite rooms overflow with contemporary style and glamour, from the designer headboards to the beautiful counterpanes.
