Royal Berkshire Hotel
| Royal Berkshire Hotel ： ウィキペディア英語版|
The Royal Berkshire Hotel is a country house hotel within a noteworthy example of a late Queen Anne mansion previously called The Oaks and located at Ascot in the English county of Berkshire.
The red-brick mansion was originally built in 1705 as the home of Sir Robert Walpole's daughter, Lady Mary, and Charles Churchill, son of the first Duke of Marlborough and relation of Sir Winston Churchill.
The building was named ''The Oaks'' for many years after its construction, but became known as ''Little Paddocks'' at the start of the 20th century when it was owned by Colonel Sir James Horlick (of the malted milk hot drink fame) until his family decided to donate the grounds to serve as a school for the blind. The building stayed as a school until the late 1960s, and the modern day tennis courts within the grounds are the final resting location of several of the facility's guide dogs.
Modern use of the building as a hotel began in 1971, when the Hoffman family, experienced European hoteliers, renovated the property.
In 2011, the property was purchased by Exclusive Hotels, via the group's sister brand EH Venues.〔(【引用サイトリンク】title=Exclusive Hotels buys former Ramada property in Ascot )〕〔(【引用サイトリンク】title=Exclusive Hotels buys the Royal Berkshire )〕
