Tylney Hall Hotel
This elegant and splendid hotel is a wonderful retreat for those looking to relax and unwind.
Luxury hotels in Hampshire come in many guises, but what makes Tylney Hall Hotel so special is its period ambience. Walking into one of the bedrooms or suites for the first time is a little like stepping back in time but with all the comfort of modern day living.
Each room is a little world unto itself and has been decorated and furnished individually with period pieces to enhance its own particular charm. Sweep back the heavy drapes that frame the high period windows in many of the rooms and you will be rewarded with breathtaking views of the rolling Hampshire countryside.
The Health Suite at Tylney Hall stands in what used to be the stables of the house and offers a wide range of relaxing treatments from Kerstin Florian using natural elements including mud, algae and essential oils, and VitaMan the male grooming experts whose treatments use products from the Australian bush with plant, herb and fruit extracts. If you’re feeling a little more energetic, there is also a well-equipped gymnasium and an indoor pool to help sooth away any stresses of the day.
The outdoor swimming pool is tucked away in its own walled courtyard and has been recognised nationally for its uniqueness. The pool stands in the shadow of the Main Hall and its poolside loungers attract just as many sun worshippers as swimmers. Being something of a sun trap, it also makes a quiet spot to relax and enjoy an evening drink.
After pampering yourself, enjoy a meal in Tylney Hall Hotel’s AA awarded two rosette Oak Room Restaurant. The menu boasts both seasonal specialities and signature dishes and naturally everything is prepared to order. The cuisine is complemented by a carefully chosen wine list and the quiet and attentive service completes a memorable experience.
If you are looking to enjoy the finest afternoon tea in Hampshire then spoil yourself with high tea served in one of Tylney Hall’s period lounges. What could be more quintessentially English than a selection of blended teas, and home-made sandwiches, cakes and scones smeared with strawberry jam and clotted cream, all served on the finest bone china. The only choice you have to make is where to enjoy the experience, either reclining in the ornate splendour of the Italian Lounge, enjoying the view of the gardens from the Grey Lounge, or for a more private tete-a-tete, the Library makes a cosy hideaway.
The spectacular gardens at Tylney Hall were created by one of the great English garden architects and designers, Gertrude Jekyll. Guests can while away many peaceful hours wandering and discovering delightful and picturesque landscapes.
From the Italian and Dutch gardens with the wonderful sights of the lake and the Hall framed with Redwoods to the green watery wonderland of the Water Gardens, Tylney Hall’s outdoor space is renowned for its striking beauty, romantic atmosphere and idyllic setting.
Lovers of traditional weddings in and around Hampshire flock to the baronial hall setting of the Tylney Suite. Its high vaulted ceiling and minstrels’ gallery create an old world atmosphere that is as luxurious as it is special, making the Tylney Suite a much sought after Hampshire wedding venue where the romantic possibilities are endless.
For organisers of conference venues and other business events, whether it be a small board room style meeting or a major conference or theatre style presentation, there are 12 well-appointed conference and banqueting suits to choose from.
The setting of the Grade II listed main Hall, standing in acres of landscaped gardens, together with its stunning oak panelled reception and period lounges and drawing rooms, immediately sets the scene and adds an extra degree of importance to any meeting or conference.
With its relaxed and friendly service, a stay at Tylney Hall Hotel is an experience you will savour and remember forever. For more information, please visit www.tylneyhall.co.uk
