Home truths

  • Yes the hotel is located on the grounds of the university, but it's very much private, and away from 'student life'!
  • The hotel supports training from the adjoining hotel management school. Far from being amateur, we witnessed extremely attentive and high levels of service from individuals that may well become the hospitality stars of the future.

History of the hotel

Wivenhoe House's fascinating history stretches back to 1759 when Isaac Rebow asked Thomas Reynolds to build the mansion house, which is now Grade II listed.

Set in the grounds of Wivenhoe Park the hotel and surroundings were immortalised in canvas by renowned British artist John Constable, when he was commissioned by the then owner Major-General Francis Slater Rebow in 1816. The resulting painting now hangs in the National Gallery of Art, Washington DC.
