Think of a quintessentially British luxury hotel and the chances are it’s one of the four properties in Iconic Luxury Hotels’ exclusive collection: Cliveden House, a majestic stately home on the banks of the River Thames; Chewton Glen, a tranquil haven on the edge of the New Forest; historic Lygon Arms in the rolling Cotswolds; or 11 Cadogan Gardens, an urban retreat in the heart of London.
What makes all the properties in Iconic Luxury Hotels’ collection so successful worldwide is their shared commitment to delivering outstanding experiences in exceptional surroundings while each one maintains its unique, often quirky, highly individual style. They all exemplify what it is to be a truly great hotel.
Immensely proud of its British heritage, Iconic Luxury Hotels partners with other like-minded companies, such as award-winning skincare specialists Oskia and heritage brand Hunter. It has also forged relationships with many local artisan producers – Hampshire-based Naked Jam even forages in the large kitchen garden at Chewton Glen. Equally, many of the ingredients used in the hotel restaurants are sourced from a matter of miles away, making this a truly British company.

THE LYGON ARMS: Set in the pretty village of Broadway, this charming old coaching inn is perfectly placed for exploring the surrounding Cotswolds. Boasting a rich history coloured by the many characters who have stayed here, the hotel offers a range of dining experiences, from brunches and drinks in the Lygon Wine Bar to a seasonal British menu in the Lygon Bar & Grill. There is also a new spa tucked away in a tranquil corner.
11 CADOGAN GARDENS: Overlooking a quiet street behind Sloane Square, this boutique property is the ideal London base for a shopping trip, romantic weekend away or a city break. Comprising four townhouses, the hotel is an intriguing maze of corridors and staircases, with interiors as dramatic as they are elegant. The hotel’s new all-day restaurant, Hans’ Bar & Grill, has proved hugely popular with guests and locals alike.
