A historic country hotel in Surrey, with award-winning dining and lovely grounds - includes breakfast and three-course dinner

The Lowdown

Woodlands Park Hotel in Surrey, near Leatherhead and Cobham, was originally commissioned by English industrialist William Bryant and built in 1885. Interesting fact for you – it was the first house of its kind in the UK to have an electric light.
Set in beautiful grounds in the Surrey countryside, Woodlands Park is a perfect retreat for anyone seeking an escape from anywhere with a tube line or an air quality warning. Ideally located close to Leatherhead, Guildford, Heathrow & Gatwick, the hotel is conveniently close to the M25 and only 25 miles from London – for those that still require their city fix.
After beautiful modernisation, today the hotel is fully refurbished to the highest standard, yet still retains much of its Victorian grandeur. Oak-panelled rooms and numerous antiques take visitors back to an age of style and sophistication. With its two AA Rosettes and superbly elegant old-school vibe, The Oak Room restaurant is a real find.

50th Birthday Sunday Night stay
Rachel W

We had stayed at Woodlands Park some 5 years ago after an excellent Wedding Reception held there. So for my husband’s 50th we booked the Sunday night “package”. Which consisted of cream tea, a meal in the restaurant (with £35.00 discount per person off food), plus an overnight stay in the Master Suite and breakfast. The hotel is as beautiful as we remember, is calm, the service excellent. The master suite has the most amazing bed, great space, sofas and importantly floor to ceiling black out curtains, which do “black out”. We had the fish finger sandwich for lunch, amazing. The meal in the restaurant was superb, the pork was soft and tasty, the steak massive and cooked to perfection. We were very impressed, having recently stayed at a 5 ***** County Hotel in Surrey, having a three course meal, I can say Woodlands Park provided much better quantity of food, as well as it being much tastier.

We were very pleased to have booked our mini trip and can wholeheartedly recommend going. Well done team!

It has many rooms for events and functions and is a popular venue for weddings.
THe car park is massive so no problems with the car. It is full of oldy worldy character .
The staff are well trained and friendly and the food is first class.

Grand look and feel

Very nice setting, looks and feels quite a grand hotel. Room was nice and had some modern features which was welcome. Breakfast service was a bit on the slow side, and there was limited veggie options on the menu in the restaurant in evenings. Not sure on value as paid for by work, but would stay again if local. Probably not the place I'd stay with children.
