ALBRIGHT HUSSEY MANOR HOTEL
This afternoon we had an appointment with the owner of the Albright Hussey to start planning our Charity Ball. This event will be held on the 24th March 2011 and will be the Mayors Charity Spring Ball. I have created a page in the menu above with that title so that you can keep up to date with ease. As yet we have only booked the date and entertainment, the menu is yet to be decided but there will be a choice and it will be a three course meal.
Tables will be round with ten people to each table, numbers are limited so please once the tickets become available, so book quickly as I would hate it if you left it until all tickets had been sold.
The Albright Hussey is a fantastic four star hotel set in fantastic surroundings, with those now famous black swans that reside in the moat. Below I have cut and pasted a part of its history taken from the Albright Hussey Manor Hotel web-site, I know Paul will not mind my cheek in doing so. I found out a lot about the Albright Hussey that I did not know before, so it is well worth reading.
The Albright Hussey Manor Hotel and Restaurant; a listed Grade II farmstead, with a prestige for excellence in its lodging, cuisine and faultless amenities. Standing in four acres of panoramic gardens in the idyllic, open Shropshire village, Albright Hussey is perfectly located just in the suburbs of the historic city of Shrewsbury. 1st recorded in the Domesday Book as ‘Elbretone’, today Albright Hussey contains all the spell and character of its heritage. In 1292, to avoid confusion with other site names similar to ‘Albrighton’ the name ‘Hussey’ was added after the family who occupied it. The Hussey family remained here till the 17th Century, and the estate passed to the Corbets in 1634. During this period Albright Hussey skilled a wealthy heritage. The Battle Of Shrewsbury was fought on surrounding fields in 1403 and Royalist troops used it as a garrison in 1741. The present cottage, dating back to Tudor times, mirrors a prosperity of heritage. Rebuilt in 1524, the timber framed section is the earliest part, the brick and stone wing being added by 1560. Interior you are to find a affluence of oak panelling, large open fireplaces and original moulded beams create a restful and hospitable atmosphere. The present proprietors, Mr and Mrs Franco Subbiani, purchased the Albright Hussey Manor in March 1988 with their son Paul. They have privately supervised the restoration program paying meticulous care to each detail of this Historic House, making it one of the best hotels in the region. Mr Franco Subbiani, orginally from Florence, features an international image as an Hotelier and with Paul taking the role of General Manager, visitors are surely offered the ‘Personal’ Touch.
