New member property joins the Classic British Hotels group: from 1 February 2024, the Forest of Arden Hotel & Country Club will expand the Classic British Hotels portfolio in the heart of the midlands. The 214-room hotel offers an excellent location and is easily accessible. It’s also one of the premier golf destinations in the UK.

 

The Forest of Arden Hotel & Country Club is a top UK venue located only 10 minutes drive away from Birmingham Airport and the NEC complex. It’s home to extensive leisure facilities featuring a fitness centre and a pool complex. Guests can visit The Cedarwood Spa to be pampered with deep-tissue massages, aromatherapy, or beauty treatments; and the Fairway Bar & Grill restaurant serving British cuisine, delicious afternoon tea and craft cocktails. Guests can also enjoy the terrace and food at the Zest Restaurant, a lively sports bar serving hearty dishes. There are 18 meeting & event spaces with the capacity to host events for an intimate 6 or up to 350 people.

With leisure at its heart, the hotel features two of the Midlands’ best 18-hole golf courses, including the championship Arden Course, a putting green and driving range on site. Set within 10,000 acres of ancient woodland where deer roam free, it’s no surprise that the four-star Forest of Arden is a firm favourite amongst golfers.

Phillip Allsopp, Classic British Hotels’ Managing Director said: “We are delighted to welcome Forest of Arden Hotel & Country Club to the Classic British Hotels family. This property embodies the essence of British charm and hospitality, and we are confident that it will contribute significantly to the exceptional experiences we offer to our guests.”

Forest of Arden’s affiliation with Classic British Hotels opens up new opportunities for guests to experience the best of British hospitality, combining the hotel’s vast offerings with the collective excellence of the Classic British Hotels portfolio.

Raj Chahar, General Manager at the Forest of Arden Hotel & Country Club, expressed excitement about the partnership, stating, “We are thrilled to be part of this distinctive collection and look forward to continuing to provide exceptional service to our guests. This collaboration allows us to showcase the beauty of our property to a wider audience and aligns perfectly with our commitment to delivering memorable and authentic experiences.”
