Best Western Welwyn Garden City Homestead Court Hotel

The Best Western Homestead Court Hotel offers rooms with a view in Welwyn Garden City, just 1 mile outside of the city centre. You'll enjoy plenty of peace and tranquility as you wander through the hotel's gorgeous landscaped gardens, or admire them from the comfort of the patio area. However, excellent road and rail links into London mean you'll never be too far from the bright lights and best sights of the capital city. With a selection of things to do in Welwyn Garden City, London and other places of interest in this part of the country, your break can be as busy as you want it to be. From Roman baths and historic houses, to lakes and cathedrals, you'll have the chance to see some wonderful sights in and around Welwyn Garden City itself.

If fishing, birdwatching or rambling are more to your taste, there'll be plenty of opportunities to enjoy these activities as well - just ask at reception and we'll be more than happy to tell you about our favourite spots. If you're heading into London, world-renowned museums and galleries, historic attractions, music venues and so much more will be waiting for you. Nevertheless, when you simply want to kick off your shoes and relax in wonderful surroundings, there's nowhere better than the Best Western Homestead Court Hotel.

The hotel is a great size, meaning large wedding parties, meeting and events can all be catered for, whilst your guests will be treated to beautiful garden views from the windows of our suites. The views inside the Best Western are just as pleasing thanks to the spacious and stylish furnishings. Bedrooms are well designed and include all the modern and comfortable features you could need. Should you wish, bedrooms with kitchen facilities are also available for your convenience.

We are also delighted to offer our guests complimentary access to the local Gosling Sports Park, located just three minutes by car from our premises. (There's limited availability so pre-booking is strongly recommended at the time of check-in).
