The most desirable boutique hotels in the UK have been revealed in a top 50 list - with one of the featured hotels being located in Solihull, near Birmingham.

The top 50 boutique hotels in the UK have been revealed, with a location in Solihull among them. Hampton Manor, a five star hotel near Birmingham, was ranked at 35 on the list.

The top 50 list was revealed on November 22 and was voted on by leading industry experts, travel writers and influencers. Last year, in 2021, there were no boutique hotels from the West Midlands on the list.

Hampton Manor is a luxury hotel based on a plot of land that spans 45 acres. It prides itself on the meals it serves, making it an ideal retreat for any foodies in the Midlands. It houses three different restaurants, as well as an artisan bakery.

Lime Wood Hotel in Hampshire topped the rankings. In second was The Newt in Somerset, followed by Heckfield Place, also in Hampshire. Fourth place was awarded to The Pig at Bridge Place in Kent, while fifth place went to Lympstone Manor in Devon.

Additionally, several special awards were given out at the ceremony. The Unique Experience Award was given to Gilpin Hotel & Lake House, the Best Service Award was awarded to Gravetye Manor, while Number One Bruton was chosen for the Food and Beverage award. Unfortunately, Hampton Manor failed to pick up any of these special awards.
