There are some great options for meetings and conferences to the South of London that can work out more cost effective than holding your event in the city centre. A couple of hotels that have come to our attention recently are the Crowne Plaza Felbridge which has just been re-branded following a £3 million refurbishment. The hotel offers 116 bedrooms and meeting space for up to 500 delegates in theatre style with 8 additional meeting rooms. There is also a restaurant, bar health club and spa.
The East Sussex National Resort is located near Brighton and offers 104 bedrooms and meeting space for up to 600 delegates. There are 2 championship golf courses, spa, health club, restaurants and bars and the outside space makes it an ideal venue for team building activities including motorised vehicles.
A collection of three hotels all on the stunning the 400 acre private Farncombe Estate just outside Broadway in the Cotswolds. There is ample space for external team building activities. Each venue is individual styled each a little different. The Fish Hotel has 67 comfortable, contemporary bedrooms across 3 buildings (the Farmhouse, Outhouse and Stables) a restaurant with terrace, and conference and meeting facilities for up to 120 delegates. Foxhill Manor offers total luxury and is perfect for exclusive use with its 8 stunning bedrooms, a screening room, drawing room, dining room, bar, gardens and a pantry full of goodies. The property comes with a private chef and a dedicated host butler to take care of all your needs. The Dormy House has 98 individually designed bedrooms, 3 cosy lounges, a choice of places to dine, semi-private dining rooms, gardens, golf and now a fabulous Spa. House Spa, with its 16m infinity pool, gym, thermal suite and treatment rooms, is available for use by guests at Foxhill Manor or Dormy House properties. The perfect place to relax.
