What is the most important factor when booking a venue for a Christmas party?

 

The Library Room at Chewton Glen

(menu)

chewton glen 02 - chewton_glen_02.jpgMartin Skan, who owned Chewton Glen for 40 years, chose this bright room as his office – and it’s easy to see why. Kitted out with one-way windows and its own entrance just off the main forecourt, it provides a private space from where to watch the comings and goings of the hotel – and, as our insider points out, it’s great for celeb-spotting!

During the day, it’s set up like a boardroom, accommodating up to 16 delegates on large comfortable directors’ chairs, with natural daylight pouring in through a strategically placed skylight. At night, the chunky centrepiece table converts for snooker, with a resident pro available to offer lessons for guests. You can let air in (and smokers out) through French windows that lead out to a small paved patio and the hotel’s comfortable lounges are just adjacent. There is also a large pull-down screen with projector, a 50in plasma TV, Bose surround-sound speakers and an en-suite loo.
