The Whitaker family owned the nearby Pylewell estate and the land around the hotel from 1874 until the early 1930s. James Whitaker, MP and JP was thought to have used the building known then as 'The Elms', as a courthouse. In time it was being referred to as "Elm-ers Court".

The house was practically rebuilt in the early 1900s by Hugh Whitaker.In the 1940s the house was taken over by the War Office and used as an Electronics and Communication Centre, by the American and Canadian Forces to co-ordinate the D-Day Landings. During the build up Elmers Court was also used as a spy training school; the famous British Spy Odette was trained here.
