About The Wellesbourne  
Inspired by 19th English styling, The Wellesbourne is the classic, elegant lounge offering a low-key sanctuary from the bustle of city life. Named after a small village near Shakespeare's hometown of Stratford Upon-Avon, the lounge is reminiscent of old English manor houses.

The Wellesbourne is home to three sophisticated rooms including The Library Room with floor-to-ceiling bookshelves; The Games Room where revelers can participate in a game of foosball or shuffleboard or cozy up to the brick fireplace in The Study, perfect for conversing over Kir Royales.
