New look for Surrey’s Oatlands Park Hotel

Former Surrey royal residence, the four-star Oatlands Park Hotel is set to reopen following a four-year multi-million-pound refurbishment to restore its period features and upgrade its facilities.

As part of the transformation, 120 of the hotel’s 144 guestrooms have been redecorated and updated, and a new restaurant and bar, The Mulberry and Bar 1509, have been added.

A brand-new glass ceiling has been installed in the guest foyer, alongside a hand-crafted brass and glass chandelier and the addition of natural marble and oak timber flooring.

The hotel’s multiple meeting rooms and conference spaces have also been upgraded, while the hotel’s extensive grounds have been landscaped and remodelled.

Originally the site of a Tudor Palace commissioned by Henry VIII in 1538, Oatlands Park Hotel in Weybridge has been described as ‘the jewel in Surrey’s crown’.

Throughout the renovations, the historic hotel façade has remained intact and the character of the grade II listed building and grounds has been carefully maintained.

Reflecting the history of the hotel, the lobby has been refurbished with marmorino walls, recreating the Italianate style of the building as it would have looked in the 19th century.

The hotel is also planning to add a luxury spa, more conference rooms and 33 extra bedrooms.

Oatland Park Hotel’s General Manager, Ness Sekakmia, said: “Our objective was to create a fresh new look and feel, by carefully preserving the rich royal history of the building and estate, while sympathetically adding contemporary facilities of the highest possible standard.

“We believe that we have succeeded in our mission to create a truly unique facility that will provide exceptional experiences for our guests for many years to come.”
