The seven-bedroom Manor hotel in Hanchurch, Staffordshire, has closed because forward bookings were not forthcoming.
Adam Fitzgerald, a director of Number One Brunswick Court, the parent company of the hotel, said the decision had been taken to focus attention on other areas of the business, which include commercial, residential and retail properties.
"We had a successful year last year, but the forecast for this year was not so good and we can not sustain the business," he said. "The eight couples who had booked their weddings at the hotel later this year have been informed and their deposits returned."
Six members of staff are being made redundant as a result of the closure of the hotel, which is situated in a GradeII-listed 19th-century building.
