Upscale hotel housed in a 1750s Georgian manor house set on 120 acres of parkland

Situated on 120 acres of beautiful parkland and developed around a 1750s Georgian residence, the Johnstown House Hotel and Spa mixes tradition and history with modern elements. Certain parts of the hotel, such as the reception and lobby, are housed in the original house, with its beautiful decorative crown moldings and decor that evokes another era -- chandeliers, patterned wallpaper, plush brocaded curtains, wooden antique pieces, fireplaces, and oil paintings in gilded frames. Other areas are more modern, such as the light and airy lounge in the sunlit atrium, and the modern spa and leisure center facilities. Common areas are bright and inviting, though a bit dated in parts, with carpet flooring and plaid-patterned couches. Though the Pavilion Restaurant is a bit lackluster in its decor -- patterned burgundy carpets that match the upholstered chairs, yellow walls lined with a smattering of framed photographs -- the Coach House Bar is a lovely, homey space with a stone fireplace, wooden floors, comfortable leather seating, and a traditional wooden bar with atmospheric red lighting.

The hotel attracts a mix of guests with its varied facilities that include an extensive spa and leisure center, as well as conference and wedding facilities. Self-catering apartments draw families, large groups, and encourage extended stays, and the property's various training facilities, pool, and large, modern fitness center make it particularly popular with sports teams.
