How to book


Feverboy73, Tripadvisor

Booked a Christmas 3 day break and we were very pleasantly surprised at how lovely it was. The hotel is stunning and the staff are all extremely welcoming and friendly. The break included breakfast, lunch and dinner and of course on Christmas Day we had Christmas dinner and an evening buffet. There was also a quiz which was fun and we were able to mingle with the other guests. The food was very nice throughout the stay and we can honestly say we didn’t go hungry! We stayed in the Hilton Honours Suite which was truly amazing. The room was lovely and clean and the bathroom had a separate bath and shower with twin sinks. Extra touches throughout the stay made it special such as managers drinks reception, stocking hanging on the door and Christmas cake sent to the room. Would definitely return.



find us, however you travel
By car:

Whether approaching Wivenhoe House from London and the South or Ipswich and the North via the A12, take the exit marked Colchester (A133). Follow the A133 towards Clacton, ignore the entrance to the Knowledge Gateway, continue along the A133 then take the B1028 for Wivenhoe before turning right into Boundary Road, then right again into Park Road. The entrance for Wivenhoe House is shared with the University of Essex but Park Road leads you through Wivenhoe Park and you will be able to see the glorious house from the road.

For Sat Nav please use CO7 9HT and then follow signage to Wivenhoe House. Please note, some Sat Navs may direct you to the wrong side of Wivenhoe Park so please check our PDF Map
