Built over 150 years ago as the last of a long line of noble houses stretching back to Roman times, Stoke Rochford, near Grantham, is regarded as one of the East Midlands’ premier conference and meetings venues as well as a country house hotel.
Set in 28-acres of glorious countryside beside a quintessential English stone village, Victorian stone mansion Stoke Rochford Hall offers stately comfort amidst historic surroundings, but with state of the art facilities, and is continuing to invest in its future success.
A £250,000 restaurant refurbishment and £200,000 new-look gym has helped boost facilities for both leisure and business guests at the venue, which also boasts 26 flexible meeting areas plus a dedicated IT suite, spectacular breakout areas on the outside terraces and a neighbouring 18-hole golf course.
Now Stoke Rochford has joined GDS, a worldwide reservation tool used by travel agents and online travel sites.
“Here at Stoke Rochford Hall we offer our guests, whether they are here for leisure, a conference or meeting, the very best experience in what is a magnificent and historic setting. This latest development means that we are even more accessible for those wanting to book terrific accommodation in a beautiful setting,” said General Manager Barry Clark.
As well as powering the content of ‘traditional’ travel agencies, GDSs also provide pricing, availability and reservation functionality to many online travel agencies.
Agents can now access Stoke Rochford Hall’s booking profile on GDS, using the relevant code depending on which system they use:
AMADEUS – HO XGMSRH
GALILEO – HO A2399
SABRE – HO 217988
WORLDSPAN – HO 27771
Boasting 15 superior bedrooms located within the Mansion itself, there are also 31 standard en-suite rooms within the original, stone-built Old Stable Courtyard and a further 45 small en-suite bedrooms in the Old Stable Courtyard or adjacent Woodland Lodge.
For conferences and meetings, Stoke Rochford is capable of catering for groups from 2 to 300 - and able to hold up to 400 guests at any one time – and features oak panelled rooms with ornate ceilings, including the Grand Hall with its fine grey stone, carved chimney piece.
But its most remarked-upon feature is it's incredible 'wow' factor, as visitors catch a glimpse of the Hall from the winding, sweeping approach road through the grounds.
