The Old Vicarage Boutique hotel, situated in the centre of the historic town of Southwell Nottinghamshire in over an acre of conservation area, was formerly a Vicarage linked to the Local Holy Trinity Church from 1847 to 1946, when it was then sold to the Nottingham County Council who subsequently opened its doors to guests as an old age peoples home and respite care. Sadly for the local community this was closed in 1999. Unfortunately after standing empty for several years, the building went into disrepair but was saved and extensively refurbished by Suzanne Fitzpatrick who bought the property in 2005, in an auction with a dream to turn the very much dilapidated building into something special, which after 2 very long and hard years she did. Bringing to life what is now the beautiful and exclusive Vicarage Boutique Hotel.
The Old Vicarage Boutique Hotel opened its doors to the public for the first time on the 1st May 2009. Bringing Southwell’s first unique hotel and fine dining experience, taking comfort and personal service to new heights. And over the last 6 years, has received astounding reviews and awards for the hotel and intimate weddings, which they hold onsite, and is now being recognised as one of the most exclusive wedding venues in the Midlands including one rosette for the restaurant.

We had the pleasure of using your hotel for my fathers funeral (celebration of his life). Although a sad day for all, much joy and pleasure was spent for an afternoon tea at the vicarage with close family and friends. The detail in every aspect was second to none and the staff and Suzanne couldn't do enough for us. What a wonderful way to celebrate his life. Thank you so much.


The Old Vicarage is not simply a hotel it is an experience, and one that we can not recommend highly enough! We had our wedding & reception here yesterday and had the most wonderful day. This place is simply stunning with every minute detail thought out. Suzanne and her team are amazing and so attentive, without being intrusive and nothing was too big an ask. We were made to feel instantly welcome and we can not thank them enough for ensuring our day was perfect!
