|THE LYGON ARMS HOTEL, BROADWAY|
At the centre of Broadway is The Lygon Arms, a traditional inn, rich in history and charm. More than this, The Inn is also an international-standard hotel with an enviable reputation for the finest cuisine and the best of 20th-century comforts. It has three acres of grounds which include lawns, flower gardens, croquet and floodlit tennis for the exclusive use of guests. The Lygon Arms also has its own spa and conference facilities.
Gazing into a huge and ancient log-burning open fireplace, you can easily drift back in time to a very different England. The Broadway parish register has the first reference to The Inn in 1532. In the 17th century, it served both sides of the Civil War - Oliver Cromwell stayed here before the decisive battle of Worcester in 1651 (Cromwell Room where Oliver Cromwell spent the night above left) and Charles I also used The Inn to meet his supporters.
The Inn has 77 rooms including 6 stunning suites, some dating back to 1532. Half of the bedrooms are situated in the original buildings, and half are located in the award-winning Garden and Orchard wings. Every room and suite at the Inn has its own distinct character, individually decorated and furnished in traditional country-house style, many with fine antiques, but combined with the technology of today.
The Lygon Arms also has four rooms in a beautiful thatched cottage situated in the Inn's beautiful walled garden - The Orchard Cottage fulfills everyone's dream of a romantic English cottage. We strongly recommend that you call The Lygon Arms to discuss your specific requirements and they will ensure that find the perfect room for you.
A few steps across the courtyard Luke's Broadway an exciting new restaurant serving fresh, locally sourced food, headed up by chef Luke Thomas. At the Lygon Arms there are lots of charming lounges in which to relax, including Gin Corner, the Tapestry Room or the Drawing Room. Enjoy an expresso, a glass of champagne, or maybe traditional afternoon tea with finger sandwiches, dainty cakes and scones with jam and cream.
