The Best Hotels to Stay at in the United Kingdom

The hospitality industry in the UK is world-class, and there are many top-class hotels you might want to check out.

Whether you’re after five-star boutique hotels or some iconic yet glamorous hideaways, the UK has them.

Below, we list some of the most popular, highly-rated hotels to stay in the United Kingdom. Check them out and, who knows, you might find your next best hotel destination.

The Balmoral

“Balmoral” means “majestic dwelling” in Gaelic, which is quite an appropriate way to describe the Balmoral in Edinburgh, Scotland.

The North British Railway company built this hotel in 1902, where porters took guests from their trains to the hotel’s reception area. Today, it is the flagship of the Rocco Forte hotel group.

Fresh and modern, the rooms of the Balmoral have clean-lined furniture as well as contemporary color schemes — rustic whites and browns, splatterings of spring green, red-orange, royal crimson, and blues.

Reviews of the staff and service are five stars. Check-ins are fast and efficient, and visitors can opt for upgrades, too.

Edgbaston Hotel

Hire an affordable car in Birmingham airport and head straight to the Edgbaston hotel. This 20-room boutique hotel offers exquisite accommodation, restaurants, and services.

Continental and buffet breakfasts? Not a problem. These options are available daily at the hotel.

If you want a hideaway that offers timeless elegance and flawless care and courtesy, Edgbaston is the place.

Lucknam Park Hotel & Spa

Let this Chippenham hotel sweep you off your feet with its brilliance. Lucknam Park Hotel & Spa is a sight to behold.

It offers a fine collection of Greek elements like Acropolis paintings, urns, and Hellenic motifs. Still, it’s undoubtedly English.

The largest bedrooms are classic, canopied four-posters, while Classic and Garden rooms are slightly more contemporary.

The food — exquisite.

Dishes are mostly locally sourced, the six-course menus are filling, and the Brasserie is flawless.

To add to the ambiance, thick linen cloths wrap the table while chandeliers light up the room overhead.

If you’re in search of something classic and old school — the peace and silence — then consider heading straight to the Lucknam Park Hotel and & Spa.

The Gainsborough Bath Spa

Located in Bath, England, the Gainsborough Bath Spa is what you would call a magnificent luxury hotel.

This 18th-century Georgian hotel keeps a modern look inside its walls. The rooms have large comfortable double beds that sit well with elegant Georgian walls and towering ceilings.

Room service? Five stars.

You can pamper yourself with comfort food right after a session at the spa. Get a taste of their signature Gainsborough cheese & bacon burger, if you want.

If you’re searching for delightful spa treatments, comfort, and luxurious service, the Gainsborough Bath Spa is the place to be.

University Arms Hotel, Autograph Collection

The University Arms Hotel is Cambridge’s pride, having been voted the “City Hotel of the Year 2018” by The Sunday Times.

This turreted hotel was first a coaching-inn in 1834. Fast forward to the present times, the hotel is now a hulking fixture where glamorous, slightly Victorian-style bedrooms await visitors.

The ground floor restaurant and bar is called the Parker’s Tavern, where you can enjoy the sunlight during the day and the comfy ambiance at night.

If you’re in search of style, character, and exquisite cocktails, they’re in the University Arms Hotel.

Cromlix Hotel

Get some real Scottish Highlands to feel when you arrive at Cromlix Hotel, which sits on a 34-acre woodland and offers lovely walks through the countryside.

There are only 15 rooms in the main house, with five suites and a Gate Lodge. Each of them is decorated fancily. The vibe is traditional yet not ancient.

French Chef Albert Roux is in charge of the kitchen, so you’ll enjoy intimate French tastes.

If you want to experience larger Highland locations without actually going there, Cromlix Hotel is where you’d wanna go.
