The Godwins Hotel is a charming Grade II listed building noted for its striking red brick gothic appearance. It was built in 1879-1880 for William H Godwin of Godwins Tiles, who had their factory in the neighbouring village of Lugwardine.
In October 1853 the Hereford Times declared of Godwins Tiles that “the variety of designs and the richness of the colours were alike and very much admired”. For half a century they enjoyed national and international acclaim and brought unprecedented attention to a quiet corner of Herefordshire. 150 years later these beautiful multicoloured tiles covering floors, fireplaces and wall borders are still appreciated by our guests.
Outside there is a large car park with a lawn to one side and a stone-slabbed patio, plus a large children’s play area. One unusual feature is a large tree stump from which has been created some fascinating and quirky sculptures.
The Godwins offers modern and stylish décor in their 6 luxurious bedrooms, that is perfectly complemented by period furniture, creating a contemporary yet comfortable ambiance within the walls of this extraordinary building. Guests are sure to enjoy a good night’s sleep and one of the rooms has a four poster bed.
All rooms are furnished to a high standard and include a full English breakfast.
