For our next Venue Spotlight, Kira has chosen Audleys Wood Hotel.
Why is Audleys Wood Hotel great for meetings and events?
Audleys Wood Hotel in Basingstoke, Hampshire is a luxury 4-star country house. The Victorian mansion was a much-loved home for much of its life. Perhaps this episode in its history that gives the mansion such warmth and comfort to this day. The hotel has a wealth of original features, including ornamental ceilings, stained glass windows and fireplaces dating back to 1669. The house stands in seven acres of beautiful woodlands, gardens, and a pavilion, with stunning countryside, walks all around
Built-in the 1880s as a private home for Thomas Pain, it subsequently enjoyed a rich and colourful history, with owners and visitors including the rich and famous. Today, its 72 spacious rooms are well equipped to cater to the guests’ needs and tastefully decorated in keeping with the traditional atmosphere. Audleys Wood offers an irresistible range of bedrooms, ranging from ‘special occasion’ four-poster suites to deluxe double and executive rooms, all with views over the beautiful hotel gardens.
Audleys Wood is a secluded and easily accessible retreat from the capital. An ideal business venue for anything from board meetings to conference and team building activities. The hotel offers wonderful character and charm, with 5 flexible meeting rooms with original features blended with contemporary décor and lots of natural light.
Why Kira loves this venue:
This venue is its own little escapism from the hustle and bustle of the city with stunning views from the meeting rooms looking over the woodlands. The main hotel rooms have kept their Victorian style with the meeting rooms having a more modern take on the Victorian style but still has that timeless feel.
