New Tunbridge Wells boutique hotel One Warwick Park has now been officially rated as four star by the AA, following its first visit by inspectors.
The hotel, which is less than five months old, secured a merit score of 81 per cent, placing it at the top end of the four star rating nationally.
The inspector judged the hotel and its team on cleanliness, hospitality, service, bedrooms, bathrooms and food for the first time since it opened in July following a multi-million pound transformation.
Following the visit, AA Hospitality tweeted: “Great stay last night @onewarwickpark. Interesting art gallery underground link. Good to see @TempleSpa products too!!”
Close to the Pantiles, One Warwick Park brings together the former Brew House Hotel, the Old School House, and neighbouring buildings to create a 39 bedroom hotel, including one suite, plus restaurant, terrace bar and function rooms.
Andrew Daniells, chief operating officer of Markerstudy Leisure, the company which owns and operates One Warwick Park, said: “It was always our aim to achieve a four star rating at our first inspection, so to achieve this so soon after opening bodes well for the future and will spur on everyone in the team to even greater performance.
“Everyone involved with achieving this fantastic inspection is to be congratulated and it’s good news that the town now has another great place to stay.
“We have built an enthusiastic and talented team and this official rating confirms the feedback we are getting from guests of the hotel and L’AMORE restaurant.”
