About Scimitar Care Hotels PLC

We understand that choosing suitable care and accommodation for yourself or a loved one can often be difficult, confusing and sometimes upsetting. We realise that people's perception of care for the elderly is tainted by the image of an institutional, impersonal 'care home' or 'nursing home'.

Scimitar Care Hotels is different. As providers of first class elderly residential care in Hertfordshire, Essex, Cambridge, Enfield and London, we opened our first residential care hotel for the elderly in 1973. Our goal then was to afford a standard of accommodation and level of service to match the expectations of the most discerning resident. Over forty years later our reputation for care and quality is second to none.

Our establishments cater for and provide personalised care for the elderly, supporting those both with and without Dementia. We specialise in offering respite care which is available throughout the year, allowing you to book upto one year in advance of the actual stay. This can allow you a short break of your own, or ensure that your loved one's needs are being met whilst you are away.

  • Thank you for a wonderful experience.
    There is no doubt that a spell in your home is an uplifting and enjoyable time. I didn't have time to say goodbye to everyone, so please pass on my regards. I eagerly look forward to November and my next stay with you.

  • On behalf of all the family I wish to thank you and all the staff who work for you at Five Oaks, for the love and care given to Mum in her two year stay with you. It was a comfort to us all to know she lived in comfortable surroundings where the atmosphere was welcoming and that all her needs were met. She was happy there, she told us so, what more can I say? Seeing Mum treated with such tender care made it easier for me.

  • I wanted to thank you all for your kindness and support whilst my Nan is in your care. My Nan always compliments her time with you and I know you all have become part of her family during her time there. We love her sense of humour and her cheeky ways, we also take comfort in knowing that she has excellent care and attention during all her time with you. Thankyou all so very much for all you do.
