Hanbury Manor, A Marriott Hotel & Country Club Review: Marriott Hanbury Manor is an impressive, almost brooding structure, built in the late 1800s in the Jacobean style. Sculptured chimney stacks; elaborate carvings on staircases, molding and trim; stained glass windows and ornate paintings make this property atmospheric and full of character inside as well as out. Hanbury Manor Crèche offers children's activities and childcare for kids up to the age of eight, allowing parents to attend classes at the Club or book a relaxing treatment at the spa. There are four dining options: formal dinners at Zodiac Restaurant; afternoon tea, light fare and drinks at Oak Hall & Cocktail Bar; international cuisine at Oakes Grill; and the casual, sporty atmosphere of Vardon's. There are special menus, private party nights and discount packages for the festive season. Hanbury Manor has 1,300 square meters of meeting space, expert planners for conferences and events and on-site exhibition space. Only 25 miles from London, it features area highlights such as Paradise Wildlife Park, Cambridge University, the London Eye and St. Albans Abbey. Hanbury Manor has made a significant effort to reduce its carbon footprint, offering homegrown produce, apple juice and honey, recycling more than 90 percent of its waste and preserving the surrounding habitats.
