Small Luxury Hotels of the World Adds Four UK Properties to Portfolio

(04 May 2021)
Small Luxury Hotels of the World has added four hotels
in the United Kingdom to its portfolio of impressive properties.

With the simplicity, value and security that
staycations provide travellers in the ever changing world of
COVID19-related travel restrictions and costs, the four luxury hotels in
Surrey, Belfast, Edinburgh and Dornoch, are expected to be
very popular as many decide to stay in their home country rather
than travel abroad.

The Culloden
Estate and Spa in Belfast
joins SLH as the only hotel in Northern Ireland.
The hotel is located on the slopes of
the Holywood Hills, overlooking Belfast Lough and the sprawling
Country Antrim Coastline.

There are 98 well-appointed rooms and
suites within the Gothic property, which was once the official
palace for the Bishops of Down.

Last year the hotel unveiled a
significant renovation to its leading spa, which features a Tylarium (steam and sauna combo), large pool, jacuzzi, and curated
ESPA treatments.


Culloden offers three dining options, fine dining
at The Vesper and more relaxed dining at The Lough Bar and
Culloden’s own onsite pub – The Cultra Inn.

The hotel will reopen its doors on 17 May with
rates from £280 per night including breakfast.

‘Orkney in the City’ is an apt description of
Edinburgh’s much-loved urban retreat, The Dunstane Houses.

Although only a 15-minute walk from Edinburgh city centre, the
hotel owners hail from Orkney and have brought the spirit of
Orkney with them, peppering the hotel with Orcadian gin, whisky,
art and even breakfast produce.

The hotel is split between two
meticulously restored Victorian townhouses which stand across the
road from each other (Dunstane House and Hampton House) and
provide 35 of the most generously sized rooms and suites Edinburgh
has to offer.

Think warm hues of ochre, burnt orange, teal and a
sumptuous combination of locally made tweeds and velvets, dotted
with roll-top baths and open fires. Ba’ Bar is the hotel’s all-day
Scottish dining offering and features one of Edinburgh’s best spirit
collections.

Beyond the characterful and evocative walls, the
city’s Old town awaits, just a 15-minute stroll away, but guests
are only a short drive from some of Scotland’s most sought-after
beauty spots from the fabled peaks of the nearby Pentland Hills to
the mystical shores of Cramond Beach, Gullane or Elie.

The hotel will reopen on 7 May with rooms
from £211 per night including breakfast.

With its waterfront location and royal
connections, The Mitre Hotel
(pictured) can easily be described as ‘fit for a
king’ or his friends at least.

The Grade II-listed property
launched in September 2020 and was originally built in 1665 to
accommodate King Charles II’s courtiers. It has been reincarnated
numerous times throughout the centuries, currently, as the elegant
36-room hotel.

The Mitre Hotel enjoys an enviable position sitting
on the banks of the River Thames in Hampton Court and provides a
relaxed and stylish retreat where no two guest rooms are the same.

Interior designer Nicola Harding has given each room an individual
stamp, with clever use of contrast and coordination. Her
refreshing palette of bold colours and textures gives the hotel an
uniquely playful ambience while paying homage to its heritage and neighbourhood.

Rooms and suites come with either views over the
River Thames, Hampton Court Palace and garden or picturesque
internal courtyards.

Food takes centre stage at the hotel with a
60-cover riverside restaurant (1665), a 70-cover brasserie and bar
(CopperNose), an 80-cover Orangery, and a large riverside terrace
home to the world’s first stand-alone Whispering Angel Bar. The
boat house bar is perfect for enjoying sundowners with a cold
glass of Whispering Angel rosé in hand.

The hotel
reopens on 17 May with a packed programme of activities, including
bike and private boat picnics, Live Jazz on the Terrace and a
‘Taste of summer’ supper club, amongst other entertainment.

Rates the 36-room hotel start from £180 per night
including breakfast.

The award-winning Links House at Royal Dornoch
effortlessly fuses tradition with a modern sensibility.

The hotel
is Scotland’s most northerly luxury destination and sits in the
rugged and romantic Scottish Highlands. It boasts 15 luxurious
rooms, 8 of which are luxury suites and a lavish penthouse
apartment – Glenshiel – the hotel’s most recent addition. All 15
rooms are named after salmon rivers in the North Highlands and
feature underfloor heating, Hypnos beds and Italian linen.

Links
House at Royal Dornoch is enveloped by beautiful grounds and
manicured gardens, including a significant herb garden that
supplies the hotel’s kitchens. Undoubtedly the allure of golf at
the spellbinding Royal Dornoch is a big draw for guests, but
beyond golf, Dornoch town has plenty of attractions, including The
Dornoch Cathedral and the award-winning Carnegie Whisky Cellars.

Further afield, guests can enjoy salmon and trout fishing and
drives around the North Coast 500 – a 500-mile route around the
top of Scotland. The hotel officially opened on 26 April, with ‘a flavour of Mara’ launching the same day – a new dining concept led
by Executive Chef James McDonald designed to celebrate the best of
Scotland’s larder. It perfectly complements the hotel’s other
eateries, The Courtroom and The Courtyard.

Rooms start
from £250 per night including breakfast.
