Independent and full of flavour is how we describe The House of Daniel Thwaites; the collection of pubs, inns and award-winning hotels from the family brewery which began over 200 years ago.
Many people will be familiar with the name of Thwaites from the collection of pubs and the brewery. In recent years, the company have been busy behind the scenes developing a portfolio of high quality hotels with conference facilities and spas. Quality, innovation, craftsmanship and warm hospitality were at the core of the business six generations ago and today, they remain an important focus in bringing all the elements together.
The House of Daniel Thwaites
Rick Bailey, Chief Executive of The House of Daniel Thwaites explains more:
“The House of Daniel Thwaites is not another dull collection, it’s not even a brand – it’s a mindset, created through the eyes of the people working in our kitchens, bars, spas and housekeeping of our properties. It’s what differentiates us and putting it all together under The House of Daniel Thwaites is the clearest way for us to help our customers understand us.
“It stands for quality, rich experiences and feeling comfortable and at home wherever you find us.”
The company enlisted the help of its staff in developing The House of Daniel Thwaites. Hundreds of team members were involved in the new proposition and bringing it to life.
“We’re all really excited about it – an organisation powered by our people, with ownership of their own properties, delivering superb hospitality in outstanding properties in great locations.”
Each property in the collection has a unique story, individual character and a superb guest experience. Our team at Findmeaconference are sharing six of their favourite hotels from the collection below.
The Aztec Hotel & Spa, Bristol
This venue has a combination of 20 meeting rooms, suites and syndicate rooms with a maximum capacity of 200 delegates. The Aztec Hotel and Spa was one of the first hotels in the UK to offer delegates attending meetings and conferences the use of free WiFi. The hotel is now taking this service to a new level of satisfaction by offering superfast, 100MB/100MB broadband. This makes it the first UK hotel to offer a self-service speedy option for conference delegates and hotel guests.
The Aztec Hotel and Spa is offering a fantastic two hour team-building option. This can be added onto the end of a meeting or event. You can get full details from the Findmeaconference team on 01775 843411. There’s a great range of activities available through the hotel’s partners MoJo Active.

North Lakes Hotel & Spa, Cumbria
Is there a better setting than the Lake District for a meeting, conference, corporate celebration or team-building event? Our team certainly appreciate the location of North Lakes Hotel which is convenient for the M6 and therefore has great access to Manchester, Newcastle and Edinburgh. It is another award-winner from The House of Daniel Thwaites because North Lakes Hotel has won the Large Hotel of the Year Award at the Cumbria Tourism Awards 2018.
The conference centre welcomes up to 200 delegates and has ten meeting rooms with lots of nature daylight. Why not include some team-building activities like clay pigeon shooting or white water rafting?

A dedicated event manager at the Solent Hotel and Spa is available for organisers at this Hampshire hotel with excellent conference rooms for up to 222 delegates. Creativity is encouraged with the numerous event spaces being flexible and adaptable. The event manager will collaborate with meeting bookers and party planners to tailor a room to exacting requirements.
The Solent Hotel and Spa is ideal for Portsmouth and Southampton. It sits in mature woods and ancient meadowland which is one of the reasons why our Findmeaconference team love it! The peaceful setting makes it feel like you’re miles from anywhere. This is perfect when privacy and confidentiality are important at events such as product development.
Thorpe Park Hotel & Spa, Leeds
No one can say that The House of Daniel Thwaites isn’t a winner with Thorpe Park Hotel and Spa picking up the title for Best Luxury Fitness Spa in the UK! The meeting and conference facilities are pretty good too!
