Facilities at Boringdon Hall Hotel

Named 'the enchanted place on the hill', Boringdon Hall is a five star hotel famous for its magically imposing nature and detailed history - both of which add to the magnificent character of the hall.

The Devonshire manor became crown property following the dissolution of the monasteries by Henry VIII in 1539. The monarch later granted the property to his courtier Thomas Wriothesley, the Earl of Southampton, who was a royal favourite. Since then, Boringdon Hall has since had a rather extravagant makeover, giving this stately pile a serious air of perfection, with devotedly designed interiors, 40 sumptuous rooms and suites, a well-stocked bar and two tantalising restaurants – the 3 AA Rosette fine dining Gallery Restaurant, and the Great Hall where lighter bites and afternoon tea is served. 

Whether it's exploring the exquisite wine list in The Gallery Restaurant, sipping on a heavenly cocktail in the Secret Bar or refreshing with a Boringdon Gin & Tonic in the Great Hall, our well-considered menus are an experience for all the senses. 

Gaia Spa is a purpose-built wellness spa set within the grounds of Boringdon, a completely unique space for relaxation and reconnecting with nature, designed with the need for complete wellbeing in mind.

The Great Hall

At the heart of Boringdon Hall, the Great Hall is a grand yet welcoming space where afternoon teas, aperitifs and light lunches can be enjoyed in front of a roaring log fire. In the summer, the Great Hall comes beautifully alive as light streams in through the magnificent leadwork windows.

The Hall is adorned with tapestries, ornate carvings and oak panelling, which give it a distinctive and unforgettable ambience. The focal point, however, is of course the great mantle above the fireplace which depicts the coat of arms of King James I. Bearing the date 1640, it is exquisitely ornamented with the figures Peace and Plenty.

Traditional steam room

Crystal Salt Steam Room

The steam room differs from the sauna with a softer heat of 48°C - 50° C and virtually 100% humidity. Infused with salt and essential oils, inhaling the salty air (known as halotherapy) has health benefits particularly for the respiratory system and skin. The room features a quartz centre piece which helps increase energy (chi) whilst bringing more balance and harmony to your life. 

Aromatherapy Steam Room

The benefits of steam rooms or showers have been known for thousands of years. The 40° - 45° C heat opens the pores to aid detoxification. The heat and humidity may bring health benefits ranging from aiding stress relief, to body cleansing, to soothing aching muscles or arthritis with the added benefit of essential oils to influence your mood. 

Laconium

The Romans invented the Laconium as a room to start the spa journey and is heated at 30°C - 35°C (this will not necessarily induce perspiration), raising the body temperature this tricks your body into thinking you are starting to get a fever, this in turn helps improve your immune system. The room temperature is achieved by heating the walls and benches allowing you to get great deep warmth penetration through your body when you relax on the benches with your feet on the foot stools. The experience is further enhanced with the injection of relaxing aromas along with the latest light colour changing system.

Herbal Sauna

Heated between 65°C - 70°C, blended with natural herbal and plant oils such as Eucalyptus and Lemongrass which can be inhaled or absorbed by the skin giving medical benefits as well as making you feel revived. 

Finnish Sauna

Enjoy the soothing experience of the traditional Finnish sauna at a room temperature of 80° - 95°C. The Finnish sauna has a  number of healthy effects on the body, it helps raise defenses against infection, has a strengthening effect on the immune system, it also has a positive effect on those who are suffering from varicose veins and subsequent cold showers activate the circulation. The sauna heat causes an enhanced blood circulation which may alleviate skin diseases. Relaxation of the muscles assists the recovery of problems related to the muscles and ligaments. The heat also has a positive and soothing effect on the respiratory tracts.

Tepidarium Style Loungers

There are two heated beds poolside which are curved ceramic loungers to relax on whilst a gentle heat permeates up through your body.

Extremely disappointing

Anon, stayed: November 2018

Our room key never worked we had to return to reception every time we wanted to go to our room.
20 per night for a dog the least I would have expected would be a few dog treats.
Service in the Mayflower and at breakfast appalling. The staff constantly have their back to you, so you have to actually get up from the table to attract them. The venison had run out so had the wine we wanted.
At breakfast they take forever to take your order for hot food again you have to go and look for staff.
The courtyard rooms and corridors linking to main building are in serious need of updating.
Spa had too many groups of hen party type ladies, chatting animatedly in the relaxing areas.

Restful and rejuvenating break

WT, Hampshire, stayed: October 2018

Everything we could have wished for and needed to make it a wonderful and relaxing four night break. Delightful Elizabethan Manor House with lots of nooks and crannies to quietly read the paper or a book after a hearty breakfast. The spa was one of the best we have visited. I really enjoyed my before breakfast swims and my ultra pampering spa treatments. All the staff, without exception, were excellent, helpful and friendly without being intrusive. Lastly, but certainly not least, the food was amazing in both restaurants. We looked forward to our evening meal throughout the day! We left feeling rested and rejuvenated and we will certainly be returning. We have already recommended Boringdon Hall to several friends.
