"Satis House" said Pip, "that's a curious name".
"It's Greek, Latin or Hebrew, maybe all three, for enough", she replied. "It means that whoever lives in the house could wish for nothing more."

That is the explanation given for the hotel name by Charles Dickens in his book "Great Expectations". Dickens was a friend of the family who owned the house between 1812 and 1878 and undoubtedly visited on occasions. The atmosphere created in this fine 18th century Grade II listed country house, set in three acres of parkland, is one of friendly relaxation. From the moment you enter the house and step onto the original York stone paving in the Entrance Hall, you realise that Satis House is a hotel with its own unique character.
