Next month the Independent Venue Roadshow is taking place at the beautiful Down Hall Hotel & Spa, Essex. Our spotlight blog looks at some of the offerings this hotel has to offer.

About Down Hall Hotel & Spa

Down Hall Hotel is one of England’s most established country house hotels, located in Hatfield Heath, near Bishop’s Stortford on the Hertfordshire and Essex border. Down Hall is only 45 minutes from central London and also ideally near London Stansted Airport in Essex.

Meetings and events

With the option to choose between the ornate historic function rooms within the Main House, or the West Wing’s newly refurbished contemporary meeting space, the 12 meeting spaces at Down Hall offer something for every occasion.

Spring 2019 marked the re-launch of the completely rejuvenated event space in the West Wing of Down Hall. With a newly created private entrance, the new space is suitable for up to 220 delegates and offers the choice of 7 function rooms and a private lounge & bar. They also have a new landscaped garden that can be used for a cocktail reception and accessed via the car park, all within an exclusive self-contained area of the hotel.

Their Main House function space is perfect for formal private dinners and corporate events looking for a sense of history and grandeur whilst still featuring all of the modern touches expected. It also benefits from being adjacent to their stunning hotel lounge.

Dining at Down Hall

The Grill Room restaurant serves exciting dishes from a modern English menu prepared with ingredients sourced from their own vegetable garden. The seasonally changing Grill Room menu and Sunday lunch menu have guests returning to the restaurant time and time again. Traditional English Afternoon Tea can be taken in the Lounge, Ibbetson’s Tea Lounge or The Grill Room restaurant. During summer months, Down Hall can also prepare a delicious picnic for you to take onto their stunning grounds.


Their brand-new treatment rooms are made up of three single rooms and one double room for couple treatments. At Eden Spa they offer a huge range of luxury ESPA body treatments, massages and facials, Jessica manicures and pedicures, waxing and treatments for men.

The spa includes a sauna, hydrotherapy and outside relaxation space.
