If you’ve bagged tickets to the Wimbledon Tennis Championships, you’ll be wanting our guide to the best hotels in Wimbledon, which are all a short walk from the courts.
If you’re visiting during the other 50 weeks of the year, there’s still the Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum and tours of the historic club, and if tennis isn’t your sport there’s plenty to do in other parts of Wimbledon; upmarket shops in the Village and Wimbledon Park Farmers Market are a popular way to while away a Saturday morning, while the Common with its Windmill Museum is a must for nature lovers and Wombles fans alike.
Did we mention it’s all under 20 minutes from central London on the train? Here are our picks for the best hotels in Wimbledon.

The best hotels in Wimbledon
Cannizaro House, an elegant mansion set in its own parkland, has quite a history, having played host to Lord Tennyson and Oscar Wilde, but it’s now part of luxury hotel chain and Hotel du Vin. The building consists of 48 sympathetically refurbished rooms and grand communal areas, as you’d expect from a chain which always puts intelligent, thoughtful design high on its list of priorities. There’s also a restaurant on-site, a bright Orangery and an attractive al fresco terrace, all boasting, as you might also expect, a well chosen wine list.
The Dog & Fox has been a Wimbledon staple since the 1800s, and, in its current incarnation, is a gastropub popular with locals, serving craft beers and hearty seasonal fare. Upstairs there are 17 one-of-a-kind boutique hotel rooms. All are spacious, with big windows, tall ceilings and luxury bathrooms. The rooms are kitted out in country plaids with heritage-style furnishings, giving guests the impression of a rural hotel, but with a London postcode.
On the edge of Wimbledon Common and just a 20-minute walk from the tennis club sits this pub with rooms. The dining room has a high-end feel, attracting local foodies with generous roasts and gastropub favourites. The venue also has three hotel rooms, each with clean and simple furnishings, coffee machines and queen-sized beds. A breakfast of fresh fruit, pastries and toast is also included in the price of the room.
For a comfortable, convenient stay in Wimbledon, the Antoinette is a large hotel with free parking located on Wimbledon Broadway, near shops, the train station and the New Wimbledon Theatre. The rooms are modest, though most have king-sized beds and some have their own private balconies. All residents also have access to the hotel’s roof gardens. There’s also The Lambourne, a cocktail bar and kitchen serving British cuisine.
For wallet-friendly lodgings during tennis season, you can’t go far wrong with a Premier Inn. It might not have much in the way of style or atmosphere – once you’re inside you could be at any one of their locations – but these cheap and cheerful hotels can be relied on for the basics. There’s a restaurant on-site for convenience and the tennis club is just three miles away, easily accessed via a bus ride and a short walk.
