About

Wivenhoe House is a beautiful 18th Century four-star hotel, near to the pretty quayside village of Wivenhoe, and minutes from Britain’s oldest recorded town, Colchester.

Based on the Suffolk, Essex border this hotel boasts a fantastic location, and there is plenty to see and explore in the local area. The hotel has a stylish brasserie offering a perfect combination of classic dishes and modern cuisine, in a relaxed, informal setting, and an outdoor terrace for dining alfresco on those balmy summer evenings.

The brasserie and bar is open every day for lunch and dinner, or if you fancy something a little more special, why not enjoy our impressive afternoon teas, available all week.

With luxury bedrooms suitable for families, to contemporary classic rooms perfect for a couple’s getaway, Wivenhoe House also offers incredible balcony rooms with views overlooking the breath-taking grounds and picturesque countryside.
