The sense of history at this delightfully old-school hotel comes from more than just the magnificent Tudor architecture; several pieces of furniture are castoffs from Buckingham Palace, and one of the beds was supposedly slept in by Elizabeth I. Rooms are large and comfortable, with nicely renovated bathrooms (some have whirlpool tubs). The once-formal restaurant is now a much more casual affair, serving such British classics as daube of venison and Gressingham duck. If
you're after something even more easygoing, there's a bar menu at the Clubhouse overlooking the indoor swimming pool.
