Kilworth House offers glorious Victoria opulence in eight acres of stunning relaxation – just minutes from the M1 in South Leicestershire.
This Grade 2 listed building not only has a it’s own orangery but an outdoor theatre offering world class entertainment. In Summer 2019, they’ve produced a re-imagined CATS by Lord Webber.
This hotel is the triple threat of modern luxury, history & elegance + superb value. You cannot fail…

As you leave the M1, within 10 minutes you’ll arrive at the hugely impressive grounds of Kilworth. From the second you arrive you’ll be enchanted as you drive through the vast gardens whilst being blown away by the classic British beauty.
The house itself balances classic decor with 2019 modern hotel needs. This is done spectacularly.
The grounds are impeccably kept and the hotel is a rare gem in the Leicestershire countryside.
Downstairs the reception area has many rooms for you to relax. All designed superbly – your views across the countryside are breathtaking.
There’s several areas for you to relax outside too if it’s a beautiful sunny day like today. Naturally, you can walk for miles.
You cannot miss the enormous orangery which has been spectacularly turned into a bar and restaurant.
I can’t think of anywhere more glorious to enjoy afternoon tea. The epitome of Britain at its best.
You cannot fail to be impressed by the scale and history…
As you make your way through the hotel you’ll be wowed by the attention to detail. Kilworth House is flawless and you can see the dedication of the entire staff before your eyes.
Their vintage luxury is consistent throughout the hotel. There’s a serenity which is delicious.
Once at your room, you’ll love the remarkable size and the modern / classic elegance.
We stayed in ‘Sheridan’ on the second floor…
The welcome couldn’t be warmer. Nothing is too much trouble. You’re even offered freshly made tea or coffee from room service on check-in which is a classy touch.
Forget tea and coffee, there’s complimentary Port once you get to your room. Wow, that was a treat!
In-room you’ll get all of the 2019 amenities + apples, fudge and bottled water to enhance your visit. There’s naturally dressing gowns and slippers for comfort.
Although the rooms are designed in a classic country house hotel style, the bathroom is sensationally fitted and modern – one of the best I’ve ever seen anywhere in the world…
It’s truly impressive. In London the bathroom would be the size of your entire room in most hotels.
There’s lovely touches in Sheridan. As well as fabulous 2019 design with separate areas for the bath, shower and toilet screaming opulence, the free-standing bath is a gorgeous touch.
Please be aware there are steps to the bathroom. Also, there’s no air conditioning at this hotel although you’re provided with a fan. Wifi is naturally complimentary and high speed.
You will of course get high-end shampoo’s etc. There’s a lovely selection of Clarins items available…
With all luxury 5* hotels you get a turn down service whilst you’re at dinner or at the show – Kilworth is no exception. The height of classiness and a lovely touch.
Downstairs you are welcome of course to take advantage of the restaurant for lunch, dinner or even afternoon tea and of course breakfast is usually included.
The linens on the bed are divine. As good as you’ll find anywhere in the world. They’ve truly thought of everything and cut no corners. Everything feels indulgent…as it should for this standard of hotel.
Breakfast itself is a decadent affair. There’s nothing they don’t serve and nothing is too much trouble.
From fresh fruit to toast and yoghurts – through to the Full English Breakfast you’re welcome to sample it all.
You cannot fail to be impressed by the freshness of the local produce cooked to perfection.
After breakfast you may wish to use the small gym, although, if I were you I’d simply walk around the astounding and beautifully kept grounds.
I cannot wait to return to Kilworth House. This is what makes Britain Great!
Huge congratulations to all involved. A class act from start to finish!
Checkout is 11am.
