A Victorian Manor House
Conveniently set in the leafy suburb of Walmer
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.
A black and white checkerboard tiled veranda overlooks a sparkling swimming pool, perfect for leisurely dips on hot summer days – while the well-established garden beckons for a quiet stroll or perhaps even a civilised game of croquet on the lawn. The more energetic can opt for a gentlemanly game of tennis or just choose a secluded spot in the garden to enjoy the abundant birdlife which calls the grounds of Hacklewood home.
In order to truly experience Hacklewood Hill Country House at the height of its Victorian glory, guests need to make a point of opting for dinner at the house’s five-star restaurant. The dining room has a magnificent chandelier, crystal goblets, starched linen and superbly trained waiters serve a splendid array of cordon bleu dishes that emanate from the kitchen.

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
