The unique combination of charm and modernity will render a stay in one of the 214 rooms or suites - all furnished with period pieces and equipped with every facility - totally unforgettable.  The century-old park contains the open-air pool, a tennis court and a five-a-side football pitch. The snack bar is the perfect place for a quick bite to eat or even a light lunch. The recently opened Regina Sporting Club is the hotel’s wellness centre to which admission is totally free.  The indoor pool is heated and packed with invigorating water features. The multi-sensory showers and the different musical and colour features provoke an instant feeling of wellbeing. Rounding it all off there is a sauna, Turkish bath and gym. Beauty treatments are chargeable.  The hotel has two restaurants – the Liberty, where it is also possible to stage banquets and special events and the Charleston that, with its a la carte menu, offers a wide choice of seasonal dishes. Gluten free and kosher menus are also available.
