Fodor's Expert Review New Hall Hotel & Spa

Walmley Rd., Birmingham, Birmingham, B76 1QX, England Fodor's Choice

A tree-lined drive leads through 26 acres of gardens and open fields to this moated, 12th-century manor house, where public rooms reflect the hotel’s long history with touches such as 16th-century oak paneling and Flemish glass, 18th-century chandeliers, and a 17th-century stone fireplace. Guest rooms, most in a more modern section, are done in contemporary English country style with plain and print fabrics and marble-tile baths. Sophisticated British cuisine is served in the very grand Bridge restaurant, while coffees and digestifs can be taken in the Terrace Lounge and Bar. The hotel is 7 miles northeast of the city center.
