Our hotel is conveniently located in the market town of Moreton-in-Marsh at the head of the beautiful Evenlode Valley in the English Cotswolds.
The White Hart Royal Hotel was once a coaching inn. Its reputation was enhanced when King Charles I sheltered in the inn following the battle of Marston Moor on 2nd July 1644. A copy of the King's unpaid bill is commemorated on a plaque within the entrance lobby.
The principal part of the hotel was built of sandstone under a pegged oak roof in the early 17th century. It was substantially extended in 1773 and 1782 and now these original buildings have been substantially and lovingly restored following a major refurbishment programme supervised by conservation officers from Cotswold District Council – there are no modern extensions to this grade II listed property. The hotel's collection of period artefacts and paintings reflect the four centuries of its evolution while guests now have use of facilities equipped to 21st century standards.
The hotel is featured in an episode of Michael Portillo's Great British Railway Journeys.
Our restaurant refurbishment has been completed and looks amazing. Only photos will do it justice (watch this space) but extra seating and tables hopefully means we have responded positively to demand from our customers and guests for more booking availability
