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


Room 101 at Stoke Park Club


Stoke Park Club - 109_Pavilion_Junior_Suite_Room_resized.jpgCombining good looks with serious comfort, 101 is one of 28 new bedrooms in the Pavilion building at Stoke Park Club, where the contemporary interiors form quite a departure from the traditional style of the main clubhouse. All are individually decorated, albeit in a similar style, and this one’s definitely for the film buff in your group (the more literary-minded will be pleased to know that any resemblance to George Orwell’s 1984 ends with the name). Two plush modern updates on the art deco cinema chair dominate the sitting area, overlooking a 42in high-definition flat screen TV that can also be viewed from the bed. Just to their right hangs a framed poster for Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey, which together with Andy Warhol lithographs, a neon light and bookshelf stocked with contemporary fiction lend the room a funky feel.

It’s a touchy-feely space, with super-thick carpets and crisp monogrammed linen. And, although strictly speaking a room rather than a suite, it does offer the option of using a sizeable walk-in closet as a secluded office (it has windows and a second desk). The comfort continues in the bathroom, where luxurious black marble hides underfloor heating and gorgeous toiletries by in-house spa brand SPC.

All 28 Pavilion bedrooms are located on the first and second floors, just above the club’s award-winning spa, and come with their own breakfast restaurant and meeting/private dining room – block-book them all and you’ve got the run of the place.
