As the first of its kind in the UK, the EDGE Hotel School is a four star hotel and conference facility run entirely by students. Students will spend 80% of their time gaining valuable experience working in the hotel, whilst the remaining time will be spent in seminars and lectures. 

Boutique hotel suites were created within the grade II* Wivenhoe House - the wartime home of the SAS.  Additionally, an insensitive 1980's bedroom wing was demolished to create room for 24 contemporary bedroom suites within a new elegant and flexible hotel pavilion.  This combination of room types gives students exposure to range of hotel environments.

The new pavilion cantilevers over the modern day equivalent of a 'Victorian garden wall' that accommodates the Conference Centre, Gallery and Brasserie.  These public areas take advantage of the surrounding views across the restored terrace, Sunken Garden and Vegetable Garden - all set within the Heritage landscape.
