"Sitting in a former royal hunting ground and with landscaping originally designed by England’s greatest gardener, Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown, the setting of this grand country manor amidst acres of formal gardens and parklands, including an English Heritage listed Lebanon cedar tree, offers an escape where time slows and natural beauty bounds.The hotel’s boutique selection of 41 exquisite rooms and suites are to be designed by Dennis Irvine Studio with the height of sophistication and refinement in mind.The rooms will be divided across the main house and The Brew House, a Grade II listed 18thcentury outbuilding. The Langley Spa, a world-class wellness centre will feature an indoor and outdoor pool, thermal area and five expansive treatment rooms. A specially designed fitness suite by leading personal trainer and author, Matt Roberts will use technologically advanced systems and equipment."
You have to love Marriott's copywriters, name-dropping Capability Brown. The keyword is "originally." I'm sure there are no traces of his work today.

And while a Grade II-listed building may sound impressive to Americans -- let alone something dating to the 18th century -- it seems like every building in England has a Grade II listing. The real gems are Grade I.
