Heathrow's first boutique hotel, The Stanwell, has launched

The Stanwell, Heathrow’s first boutique hotel has officially opened providing the local business community and Heathrow passengers with a new and alternative to the big airport chain hotels. Situated three miles from the M25 and Heathrow’s T5 in the 13th century historic village of Stanwell, The Stanwell was the first airport hotel to open at Heathrow in 1951. Now, following a multi-million pound refurbishment and extension, the Stanwell gets a new lease of life with 54 bedrooms, Zamora’s restaurant, the Atrium Lounge Bar and Knyvett meeting rooms. Set in almost an acre of grounds, the hotel’s semi-rural location belies its proximity to the world’s busiest airport.Special opening rates start from as little as £75.00 for the Classic Double rooms.
The accommodation includes Classic & Deluxe Doubles and Executive Kings, some with balconies, plus The Stanwell Suite with en suite bedroom, lounge, dining/ boardroom and guest facilities, perfect for the business executive or family. Styles and decor vary from rooms in the original Victorian House to the Stables across the courtyard with ground floor rooms leading onto their own patios; and through the atrium the new Garden Rooms, some with French windows opening onto the lawns. Event space can accommodate up to 50 people for business meetings or social events. Named after Lord Knyvett who lived in Stanwell and was accredited with arresting Guy Fawkes in 1605, The Knyvett Room has easy access on the ground floor and natural daylight and measures 60m². Suitable for small meetings, training, and private lunches & dinners and small weddings. The hotel has 45 private parking spaces. Executive chef Manuel Zamora is back with his newly designed a la carte restaurant “Zamora’s” relocated to incorporate al fresco dining on the patio overlooking the rear gardens. The modern, contemporary eaterie is launching a new “eclectic European” menu with speciality dishes.
