Laura Ashley launches hotel and wedding venue

Love Laura Ashley? Then how about holding your wedding ceremony and reception at its new hotel in Hertfordshire?

Laura Ashley has opened its first hotel, in Elstree, Hertfordshire. The Manor Elstree has 49 rooms, plus four function rooms with a capacity of 10 to 124 people and a wedding planning service. The Tudor-style hotel and grounds can be hired exclusively for weddings and is licensed for wedding ceremonies.

All rooms are furnished with Laura Ashley homewares and there are four suites, all with individual decor schemes, views to London and separate sleeping and living areas. Rooms start at £150. The grounds would make a pretty back-drop for wedding snaps: there are 10 acres of land, which include a giant chess board, rose garden and expansive views to London.

The wedding planning team are taking bookings now and have availability for this year. Phone 020-8327 4707 for more details and pricing.
