The Macdonald Alveston Manor has a long and interesting history dating back from before the Norman Conquest.

The first building on the site is thought to have been an Anchorite cell, circa 960. Later a small monastery was built by monks from Worcester. The same monks also erected the first wooden bridge to improve the original ford that was used to cross the river.

Alveston Manor is referred to in the Doomsday Book and in 1086 it was seized from Wultan, Bishop of Worcester.

In 1562, during the reign of Elizabeth 1, the Manor building was sold to Sir Ambrose Cave for £1007 3s 6d. Sir Cave later sold it to Ludovic Greville. In turn his son sold the property in 1603 to Richard Lane; whose father’s effigy is affixed to the walls of the Saxon church remains in Alveston.

The present building is a wonderful myriad of different historical periods. The Manor Bar contains 16th century panelling; the centre of the house is Elizabethan; the gable nearest the road is from the era of William & Mary and the widows in the centre of the building are Queen Anne.

Whatever the reason for visiting our beautiful part of the UK; perhaps a Shakespeare enthusiast, looking to escape with the family to nearby Warwick Castle or simply visiting the area on business, you will be guaranteed one of the most comfortable night’s sleep in the town.  Your stay will be further enchanced by the significant ground floor and meeting space refurbishment.

Passionate about serving simple, yet good quality, flavoursome food, the Macdonald Alveston Manor has one rosette for the quality of the food, presentation and service, so it’s worth dining at the hotel during your stay.

When the exploring local attractions or the business of the day is done, the high tech gym, swimming pool and spa are designed to rest weary legs ad revive tired minds.  Indulge in an Elemis treatment or simply watch the world go by from the poolside.
