Bishopstrow Hotel & Spa has announced it has become the first hotel in Wiltshire to be accredited by global network Small Luxury Hotels of the World (SLH).
The 19th century, 32-bedroom country house, is one of just 28 hotels in England to be accredited by SLH.
There are more than 520 SLH accredited hotels around the world, across 90 countries.
Bishopstrow Hotel & Spa was recently acquired and transformed by South West-based boutique hoteliers, Ian and Christa Taylor, owners of the Kaleidoscope Collection.
Ian says: “Since we took ownership of Bishopstrow in the summer, it was our ambition to join the prestigious SLH collection, alongside one of our sister properties Homewood.
“Small Luxury Hotels represents the pinnacle of boutique hospitality: properties which are more than somewhere to lay your head, that capture your heart and mind during a stay, and provide unique, memorable moments.
“To be accepted into SLH at the beginning of our ownership at Bishopstrow speaks volumes for the journey we’re embarking upon.
“I am so proud of our entire team at Bishopstrow, who strive daily to deliver a luxury experience with a touch of playfulness and an infectious spirit.”
Managing Director of Bishopstrow Hotel & Spa, Jonathan Walker, added: “We have been long looking forward to becoming a member of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World; at the heart of what we do and what we stand for is to be passionately independent.
“Therefore, SLH is a perfect partner as we invest and further enhance our guests’ experiences at Bishopstrow Hotel & Spa over the coming years.”
