Modern, Executive Luxury in a Classical Georgian Setting.

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.

“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.
