• A Victorian Manor House

    Conveniently set in the leafy suburb of Walmer

Exclusive Luxury Accommodation

Nestled in a lush English garden setting in the leafy suburb of Walmer.

Built in 1898 Hacklewood Hill is one of the few remaining Victorian Manor Houses in the city, and as such retains much of the elegance and grace it would have boasted when its first inhabitants – a young doctor and his family – once lived here.

Guests are greeted with intricately stained-glass doors, gleaming wooden floors and the gentle sheen of wooden banisters lovingly buffed and polished for more than a century. Wandering around the house’s two reception rooms, your eye naturally gravitates from one fascinating period piece to another.

Luxury Rooms

The manor house’s eight luxury en-suite rooms which are equally as enticing, especially as each so perfectly captures the essence of the Victorian Age. Each is individually decorated in palettes ranging from pastel blues and rose bedecked pinks to more masculine browns and reds.

Special Occasions

Situated in the beautiful leafy suburb of Walmer, Hacklewood Hill Country House is the perfect setting for any special occasion. From weddings to birthdays and baby showers, Hacklewood offers a beautiful backdrop to celebrate special occasions. We also offer equipped conference facilities.

  • Wonderful hotel

    Wonderful hotel. We stayed for one night at the Hacklewood Hill in early October booked via Trailfinders what a wonderful charming victorian style hotel. The room was impeccable but the food was out of this world gourmet standard but reasonably priced. I wish we could have stayed more nights
