History of the Hotel

The Broadway Park Hotel was built initially as a country mansion in the mid Victorian era by a Mr Drabble. Mr Drabble was a wealthy Victorian entrepreneur engaged in trade with the South American Continent, dealing mainly with the shipping and importation of Corned Beef.

The property at that time was named Los Altos after one of his many South American estates. At that time the adjoining Los Altos Park also Comprised part of the estate. In the grounds of the immediate house 7 acres of grounds were laid out to landscaped gardens. At one time the mansion also boasted an Edwardian indoor Tennis Court, which was used by Fred Perry for his winter training.

The grounds also included a sunken Rose garden attributed to Lutyens, which has recently been replenished with white Roses in memory of Margo Hook. Margo was the eldest daughter of Robert Barr, founder of Wallace Arnold who owned the hotel from 1989 up until April 2005.

The Wisteria surrounding the Rose garden can be seen at its best in mid to late May and early June when it is resplendent in colour. There are many types of tree in the surrounding Gardens including, Oaks, Beeches, Limes, Cypress and Magnolias.

Many species of wildlife are present including, a pair of Robins, Rabbits, Foxes, Badgers and we are also very fortunate to have resident Red Squirrels. The hotel is now part of the Shearings group since the merger of the two companies in April 2005. We are endeavouring to refurbish the property sympathetically with its history and surroundings to maintain both its character and ambience.
