As home of the Edge Hotel School, Wivenhoe House attracts the support of the UK’s hospitality industry and several hoteliers have chosen to illustrate their interest in the success of the School by sponsoring suites, decorated in the style of their best rooms at their own establishments. As the hotel is just minutes from the University of Essex, our accommodation is perfect for a visit to the University.

The garden wing offers contemporary bedrooms all maintained to the highest standards throughout. Whatever room you choose at Wivenhoe House, each one includes an AppleMac computer, tea and coffee making facilities, minibar, room service, safe, dressing gowns and toiletries from The White Company.
