Private landscaped gardens and Surrey woodlands are the setting for this Victorian manor house. Despite the rural location, the Macdonald Frimley Hall Hotel & Spa is a short trip from Heathrow, just off the M3. For the meetings crowd, there are four spaces to look at, all with free Wi-Fi. The largest is the Frimley Suite, which can be subdivided. The White Room has stained-glass windows, an open fire place and views of the gardens, while the book-lined Library is good for smaller gatherings. If the weather’s good, there are outdoor activities such as laser clay-pigeon shooting and archery, if not, the Vital Health & Wellbeing Spa is open to groups.
