About Pennyhill Park
The hotel itself is nestled down a long drive in the picturesque woodlands of Surrey, making it a popular choice to host weddings. The venue boasts 123 acres of parkland, a Michelin starred restaurant and brasserie, a spa – featuring 8 indoor and outdoor pools, a fitness center, a tennis court and a 9-hole golf course.
The hotel was formerly a manor house which dates back to the 1800s. The ivy-clad external walls tower over the outdoor spa facilities which includes a swimming pool and Jacuzzi. The inside of the hotel is a maze of nooks and crannies adding to the rustic feel of the former manor.
Another interesting design aspect of the hotel is that no two rooms are the same. This element further highlights the exclusivity of the hotel, as each experience is unique. The rooms and suites exude charm and elegance, with a mixture of traditional, contemporary and unique styling themes.
Pennyhill Park is the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. The exquisite country setting offers the serenity of sheer indulgence and relaxation. The retreat is so renowned that even English Rugby team live and train on-site during the season. From the stylish décor, outstanding facilities, to the impeccable service, Pennyhill Park is an incredible place to stay.
After being escorted to our rooms, we were able to take a look around the stunning 123 acre hotel and its grounds. Before dinner, we sat on the terrace enjoying their finest cocktails. Their long list of cocktails provided us with thrilling choices. My favourite was the ‘Millionaires Mojito’ which had Elements 8 Gold Rum, fresh lime, simple syrup, mint leaves finished with Rose Champagne – absolutely delicious!
We then moved on to dine in the hotels stylish and vibrant Brasserie, which has been awarded two AA Rosettes. We were served an exquisite three course meal, a few options included smoked mackerel pate, fillet of beef carpaccio, stuffed pork lion and seared tuna loin.
Although we were extremely lucky with the 25 degrees weather, we had, without a doubt, an extremely pleasurable and relaxing experience – I would highly recommend Pennyhill Park to anyone looking for a luxurious and serene break!
