Situated amongst 7 acres of land in the rural outskirts of Wolverhampton is the lovely historical Mount Hotel. This 154-year-old building has benefited from a recent refurbishment and newer extensions that have been tastefully added over the years, in a manner that hasn’t compromised the character of the original venue. 

Indeed, what struck us most during our time here, was the choice of either modern contemporary meeting spaces or the more classical late Victorian and Edwardian era rooms, most notable of which is the Great Hall – more on that later on!

The classical feel to this venue is first noticed as you enter the stately reception area, where friendly staff will make you feel right at home. From here, the Drawing Room Bar & Grill, bedrooms and meeting rooms can all be easily accessed.

It also has to be said, that sitting in the tranquil terrace that overlooks the beautiful gardens, you never would have guessed that getting here would be as easy as it is either. With the M54 and M5 only a short drive away and with London Euston only being a 1-hour journey from the nearby train station, access is no issue here.

It has to be said that we loved the bedrooms! All 67 rooms are modern and tastefully designed, with king sized beds throughout and even fourposter beds in some of the suites. We loved the feature windows in the old house and really appreciated the large feel to the rooms.

RESTAURANTS & BARS
The Drawing Room Bar & Grill is a 2 AA Rosette awarded restaurant that serves a superb selection of contemporary British homemade food with a twist. Whether you are after a quick snack, afternoon tea or a hearty meal, you can be sure to have a great time here as you enjoy some gastronomic delights while overlooking the hotels beautifully kept gardens. 

While the restaurant is modern and bright, the bar is more traditional and in keeping with the character of the old house. What combines the two however, is the nice and relaxed vibe that can be found in both areas. Should you wish to detach yourself even further, then the decking and terrace area outside allows offers you even more room to escape.

MEETING / CONFERENCE ROOMS
There are two types of function rooms at The Mount; Modern and Traditional – and we loved them both! The older part of the hotel is home to the Great Hall and several other smaller meeting rooms, all of which are full of character. In contrast to these rooms in the newer part of the hotel are the modern suites, with clean lines throughout. These two opposing styles enable you to cater for a huge range of events, ensuring your delegates needs are perfectly met.

With ten rooms available and with capacity to seat anything from 2 to 120 people, the Mount is perfect for any small to medium sized events. While all meeting rooms are located on either the ground or first floor, the hotels Gardens are also available for private hire – absolutely perfect for teambuilding or BBQ events.

As the largest room at The Mount, the Great Hall can comfortably accommodate up to 120 guests for more formal sit-down events and up to 250 for buffet functions etc. This capacity, coupled with the gorgeous period features of the room would make it an incredible location for awards evenings, launch parties, medium sized conferences or most obviously – weddings.
