Whatley Manor is a hotel, restaurant and spa complex housed in a former farm and estate building, located in Easton Grey in the southern Cotswolds, near Malmesbury, Wiltshire, England.

Situated now on a 12-acre (49,000 m2) garden, the long term farm site was known until its conversion to a hotel in 2003 as Twatley Manor, and at one time was home to the master of the Beaufort Hunt.[1]

Bought by a Swiss hotel chain, the house was renamed and redesigned into a Swiss-influenced interpretation of modern Cotswolds architecture, added to by a construction team led by MITIE Group with a 12,000 square feet (1,100 m2) spa and health complex. In October 2007, the 23 bedroom hotel which is part of the Relais & Chateaux group was voted ninth "Best Holiday and Wellness Hotel in the World" (number one in the UK) by the Swiss business publication, Bilanz.[2]

The hotel has two restaurants (the Dining Room and Le Mazot) and a non-residents bar. In 2005, the Dining Room won its first Michelin star under head chef Martin Burge.[2] In January 2010, the Dining Room was awarded a second Michelin Star.[1]
