The Maids Head Hotel has acquired a rare 1950 Bentley Mark 6, left hand drive convertible, with a Park Ward body. Only four of this particular model were made and only two survive.

The Mark 6 was Bentley’s first post war luxury car and was manufactured between 1947 and 1952.

This is the hotel’s second classic car; earlier this year a 1963 Bentley S3 was purchased and has proved very popular, taking hotel guests on chauffeur driven explorations of the city. The bride and groom at weddings hosted by the hotel are also able to take a spin in the Bentley, with the Hotel’s resident chauffeur, and have photographs taken at Pull’s Ferry, at St James Hill, overlooking the Anglican Cathedral and the city centre and in the Market, buying an ice cream.

Christine Malcolm, General Manager, the Maids Head Hotel said: “We are very excited with the addition of this very rare Bentley to the Maids Head’s family. The new Bentley will also be providing classic car experiences for our guests and will, I am sure, be a very popular photography ‘prop’ for our weddings.”
