This week’s venue spotlight, chosen by Ann, is Barnett Hill Hotel in Guilford. This beautiful hotel is set in the heart of the scenic Surrey Hills, and once was the private home of the Thomas Cook family.

The Barnett Hill Hotel is surrounded by 26 acres of beautifully manicured gardens including stunning antique sculptures and features. The hotel is a Queen Anne-style mansion with beautiful contemporary features contrasting with original features. The luxurious bedrooms are located within the Mansion House, The Courtyard, and the Gardener’s Cottage.

As well, Barnett Hill is dog friendly. They have a selection of pet-friendly rooms that include a comfy dog bed, bowls, and treats. Nearby, there are plenty of scenic walks to take dogs, or for guests to stretch their legs.

Barnett Hill is home to a 2AA Rosette Restaurant. The Oak Room serves fine dining for guests to treat themselves and feel luxurious. Also, the hotel offers afternoon teas as well as private dining opportunities. The hotel has the 1905 Bar for guests to unwind after their delicious meal. They serve locally sourced tipples whilst looking over a garden view.

Barnett Hill Hotel has nine meeting rooms, the largest of which is the Garden Suite. This room has beautiful views onto the garden to the side of the House and holds a maximum of 42 delegates cabaret style.  The hotel is just 45 minutes away from both Gatwick Airport and London, and just a short distance from the M25, making this hotel very accessible. As well as meetings and conferences, the hotel also offers team-building activities including human table football and ‘knockout’ style games.

Why I Love This Venue

The hotel is perfect for Groups or Incentives, Board Meetings, Private dinners, it exudes Contemporary Chic meets Country House Hotel. It is set in a quiet, tranquil location but only 45 minutes from Heathrow and 3 miles from Guildford.  Team building can be organised within the grounds from Croquet to a Guided Wellness Walk within the Woodlands.  It is a great venue for exclusive use with a mix of meeting rooms for intimate meetings, dinners and a mix of 44 bedrooms and suites.  As well, the terrace areas great for drinks receptions.
