Beautifully British Escapes
Designed exclusively for adults
From a holiday camp on Hayling Island to 16 unique properties
Warner Leisure Hotels celebrates a 90-year milestone in 2022. The brainchild of Captain Harry Warner back in 1932, it has developed into a UK-based holiday group that specialises in short breaks exclusively for adults (over 21s).
The collection includes hotels in the English counties of Oxfordshire, Berkshire, Cheshire, Herefordshire, North Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire, Somerset and Warwickshire. There’s also a Victorian folly near Snowdonia in North Wales. Mostly Grade I and Grade II listed with period detail and heritage grounds and gardens, they’re a true who’s who in the history books. William of Orange, Henry VIII, Jane Seymour, William Pitt and the Queen Mother count among former guests.
Coastal hotels and villages
Five hotels and villages are located in Suffolk and on the Isle of Wight and Hampshire’s Hayling Island with sea views and easy access to some of Britain’s most celebrated beaches and coastlines.
Rooms range from suites with four posters and roll top baths to contemporary chalet-style lodges by the sea to suit all styles and budgets.
Music and shows
Live shows and dancing every night are Warner Leisure Hotels’ trademarks. Of the properties, 11 feature a purpose-built theatre and dance floor for concerts by visiting acts, choreographed shows from the hotel team, comedy, tribute sets and festivals. Three of the hotels have cabaret restaurants with dining and the show in the same venue. Visiting stars include Jane McDonald, Katherine Jenkins, Anton Du Beke and Erin Boag, Tony Hadley The Hairy Bikers and Trevor Nelson.
