Major leisure attraction unveils £16m hotel

This summer Warwick Castle will unveil a medieval themed hotel, promising visitors an immersive and authentic experience.

With a £16.4m investment in the hotel development, Warwick Castle will accommodate more than 300 overnight guests, adding to its existing accommodation in Caesar’s Tower Suites, the Knight’s Village Woodland Lodges and the Knight’s Village Medieval Glamping.

As guests walk into the hotel they will come face to face with talking historic portraits that give guests an insight into the centuries of history that have taken place inside Warwick Castle’s grounds.

The exterior of the hotel will resemble a medieval long hall, with a rough cast render, timber cladding and shingle roof tiles.

Each room gives a nod to the Wars of the Roses, with rose motifs, chambers draped in rich coloured fabrics and featuring wooden beams and shields.

Liam Bartlett, general manager at Warwick Castle said: “We are incredibly proud to announce that we will be opening the doors of the Warwick Castle Hotel to the public this July. Our brand-new hotel immerses guests in Warwick’s rich history whilst also delivering modern luxuries to make the experience even more special. Our new hotel is also fantastic news for the local visitor economy, ensuring a high-quality offering for overnight visitors to showcase everything that this town has to offer.”
