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.

We have visited Woodlands Park Hotel on so many occasions and have never been disappointed.
We celebrated renewing our wedding vowels here a number of years ago. We held the service, a sit down meal for 60+ people and then an evenings entertainment for approx. 100. The staffs attention to our requirements was faultless. It was an amazing, memorable day.
We celebrated a relatives 70th birthday. We had dinner in one of the venues private rooms. Again the staff were amazing. Drinks on the terrace in the evening finished the day off a treat.
We frequently take afternoon tea at the hotel. Both in the restaurant and in the garden are lovely. The tea changes from time to time and so always something new to try. It is by far the beast afternoon tea for miles around both in quality and value for money. I would always recommend the champagne afternoon tea.
Outstanding setvice in beautiful surroundings, with a great deal of interesting history. Highly recommend every time.

Afternoon tea with my cousin
Reviewed 1 week ago

Had afternoon tea with my cousin on a nice sunny day.
The tea arrived and it looked very nice with scones cream and jam,sandwiches and cakes. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. We had kir royals to start, teas. We finished off with a glass of prosecco in the garden. The hotel has lovely gardens and grounds and the interior is well kept. We had such a lovely day and would recommend the hotel for afternoon tea. Well done.

6 of us stayed here on the weekend for a trip to Epsom racecourse. The service was excellent, the food was delicious, the rooms were perfect and the grounds were beautiful.

We arrived very early in order to get to the races and were well looked after, we were given a room to get changed in and our bags were taken to our rooms whilst we were out. Our suit bags were even hung up in the wardrobes!

Breakfast on the terrace was lovely and we ended up staying for a couple of hours after checkout to sit and enjoy the grounds with a beer!

My boyfriend and I came here for a nice weekend away and it did not disappoint. The hotel and hotel grounds are beautiful. We stayed for one night and had a table at the hotels restaurant. The service was fantastic, despite being understaffed we did not mind that there was a wait on the food as we enjoyed it so much when it did come. The staff were also very apologetic and offered us a couple of drinks on the house to compensate the wait. The rooms were lovely and the bed was very very comfortable! I would recommend staying here.

Tea for 22

A splendid venue to celebrate a 40th wedding anniversary. The guests were welcomed with Kir Royal followed by an excellent selection of teas and sandwiches.The warm scones which followed with clotted cream and strawberry jam just melted in the mouth . The Pimms jelly and Battenberg cake completed the spread. It was nice to see that gluten-free eats were available for those unable to eat ordinary food.This was a celebratory tea in the traditional English way . The Continentals miss so much by not having this. It was a hot and humid day we were fortunate to have the air-con in the room and afterwards we were able to spillout onto the terrace and sample the garden view.
