Modern, Executive Luxury in a Classical Georgian Setting.
Whether coming to The Knighton Hotel for business or pleasure, you are guaranteed a comfortable and relaxing stay.
All of our 16, en-suite rooms offer the latest in modern facilities and are furnished to a consistently high standard, whilst retaining the character and charm of the original building. The rooms feature a range of configurations, from Jacuzzi Spa baths with shower over in the executive suites, to 'wet rooms’ and widened doorways in our accessibility rooms, with a central lift providing easy access to all floors.
The rooms are located around the central atrium, and accessed via the magnificent 'Cantalibra' staircase, an architectural feature of the hotel that is believed to be the last of its kind in Europe.
At the very top of this staircase lies our penthouse suite, 'The Orangery'. This modern, glass roofed structure has windows on three sides, and affords a wonderful panoramic view of the surrounding Welsh hillsides.

Contemporary Cuisine in Social Surroundings.
The Knighton Hotel boasts the large Offa's Restaurant, relaxed Lounge Bar and new Walker's Bar, in addition to its impressive and extensive Function Suites.
Our spacious and informal Restaurant, open all year round to non-residents, serves a wide choice of good value, classic and local dishes, prepared from locally sourced produce by our Executive Chef, Peter Carr. Peter brings a wealth of experience to The Knighton, having previously worked alongside Heston Blumenthal at the Fat Duck, and at a number of Two Rosette and Michelin starred kitchens such as The Langer Hall Hotel and The Olive Branch. Peter trained in the Vale of Belvoir, near to his family home, and it was here that he developed his passion for food, and honed his flare for cooking.
Our Lounge Bar, with its large windows and comfortable seating, offers a superb range of carefully selected beers, wines and spirits - as does the more rurally themed Walker's Bar, with its originally styled, wooden furnishings.
We also have a daily drop in Coffee Shop that provides a large selection of teas, coffees and soft drinks, as well as home-baked cakes and pastries.

Banqueting Suites for Special Occasions and Corporate Events

Our five distinct function areas make ideal surroundings for everything from family gatherings, weddings or christenings, to business events or weekly club meetings. Whatever your requirements, from twenty people to two hundred, The Knighton Hotel can cater to your individual and specific needs.
Our Function Suite has direct access from both the Hotel, and the street and can be used completely separately from the main building, with its own, fully equipped bar and kitchen area. Stairs from the Hotel Foyer lead directly to the Mezzanine floor, and large double doors on the first floor, accessible via the central lift, lead to Offa's Lounge and the Main Glyndwr Hall.
A separate stairway from the road leads to a small foyer, from which all function areas are accessible without having to pass through the main building.

“The Noble Art of Hospitality”
The Award Winning Knighton Hotel, part of the Rural Retreats and Leisure Group, is a stunning Georgian building which dominates the centre of the ancient market town of Knighton.
Knighton straddles the English / Welsh Border some forty five miles West of Birmingham. While the majority of the town is in Powys, previously Radnorshire, the town's railway station lies in the English County of Shropshire. This unique geographical feature, being neither fully Welsh, nor fully English, made Knighton a key strategic location during the Welsh uprisings of the Eleventh Century, and the later Welsh Revolt led by Owain Glyndwr against the rule of Henry IV in the early Fifteenth Century.
Modern Knighton sits in the Teme Valley, just a short drive from the larger towns of Ludlow to the East, Newtown to the North and LLandrindod Wells to the West, but is sheltered by imposing Welsh Hills on three sides. Close enough to urban centres to be accessible, yet just far enough away to escape their daily rigours, Knighton offers a perfect base from which to reach out and explore the wonderful Welsh Marches.
