Mercure Letchworth Hall Hotel in Hertfordshire has a varied and fascinating history. Guests find themselves following in the footsteps of some of the most illustrious names from the past as they admire the Grand Hall or wander in the beautiful grounds.

Built in the early part of the 17th century, the hall stands on the site of a 12th-century Norman manor. Fairview Hotels refurbished and relaunched in November 2009 after a £1.3 million upgrade that produced all mod cons but took care to retain and restore many of the historic features that make staying at the hotel such a special experience.

The unmistakable atmosphere of a grand country estate surrounds the four-star Mercure Letchworth Hall Hotel, providing an oasis for guests and visitors seeking escape from busy everyday life yet still within easy reach of road and rail networks.

Cluster general manager for Fairview Hotels Tony Murdock said: “Our goal is to ensure that the Mercure Letchworth Hall Hotel is one of the best in Hertfordshire. Everyone at the hotel is working hard to ensure the right people are sourced so that our food and service levels will delight our visitors. I want Letchworth to be at the front of people’s mind when they are choosing a wedding venue and we will ensure we do our part to make their day very special”.
