The Best Luxury Hotels for a Staycation in the UK
With the announcement for an international travel ban in the UK, a summer holiday abroad is starting to look less and less likely for Brits.

Read on to find out which are Finance Monthly’s favourite luxury hotels in the UK and get booking!
Just a 45-minute journey by car from London, Coworth Park is a five-star hotel housed in a stunning building that was finished in 1776. The interiors are refined and modern and the general vibe exudes luxury and affluence. With a Michelin-starred kitchen headed by chef Adam Smith, an exquisite spa, 240 acres of meadow (including a tranquil lake in the middle), an equestrian centre and its own two polo fields, Coworth Park guarantees lots of entertainment for the whole family.
The hotel has confirmed that it’s ready to open its doors for guests on 17th May, with The Barn and Drawing Room terraces opening for a meal on Monday 12th April.

The Cary Arms
Set beneath the pink-soil cliffs on Babbacombe beach in Devon, The Cary Arms & Spa is a chic inn that perfectly captures the beauty of the English seaside. Located inside the curve of a bay, the hotel offers its guests jaw-dropping views of the endless sea and the old jetty (where both locals and seals can be seen fishing) and immense tranquillity. A true jewel in Devon’s crown, this beautiful hotel needs to immediately be added to your list of hotels to stay at as soon as we’re allowed to travel around the country.
Guests will be able to stay at The Cary Arms’ rental cottages from 12th April, with the rest of the hotel officially opening on 17th May.

The city is Edinburgh. The address is 1 Princess Street. The place is the magnificent Victorian building with a clock tower right in the Scottish capital’s heart. The stars are five.
If you’re planning a staycation in Scotland and are looking for Edinburgh’s most iconic hotel, look no further than The Balmoral. Dating back to 1902 when it was built as a grand railway hotel, today the hotel offers world-class facilities, including Michelin-starred dining at Number One and award-winning afternoon tea at the Palm Court.
And if its ultra-convenient location, grandeur and opulence are not reasons enough to book your stay at The Balmoral, the fact that J.K.Rowling secretly lived there for six months to complete the last Harry Potter book might be that extra push you needed to do it.

The Royal Crescent Hotel & Spa
When thinking about Bath, an image of its 150-metre-long sweeping crescent instantly pops into most people’s heads. It is one of the finest examples of Georgian architecture in Britain and in addition to being tourists’ favourite spot for a photo, the crescent is also home to The Royal Crescent Hotel & Spa – a luxury hotel that perfectly blends modern luxury with 18th-century elegance. The interiors combine graceful opulence with design motifs from the Georgian era – think curvaceous staircases, high ceilings, gorgeous chandeliers, original artworks and antique furnishings. The hotel has a wide range of first-class amenities befitting its five-star status, including the three-AA-rosette Dower House Restaurant and the award-winning Spa & Bath House.
The Royal Crescent Hotel & Spa will be opening for outdoor dining and afternoon tea from 14th April. Spa days can be booked from 14th April too, while the full hotel will start welcoming guests again on 17th May.
