Surrey minimoon review: The Runnymede on Thames

We unwind at this gorgeous spa hotel in Surrey

Fancy a relaxing break but don’t want to travel too far? Look no further than The Runnymede on Thames.


Located just 40 minutes away from London, this contemporary spa hotel is the perfect place to retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city.

The Runnymede is surrounded by delightful countryside, close to nearby Windsor and its castle, where you can visit St George’s Chapel – which will be home to not one, but two royal weddings this year.

Beautiful outdoor space for a summer retreat

The hotel is close to so many attractions, and you don’t need to go far to fill your time with fun. Hop aboard one of the hotel’s hireable boats and head down the River Thames for romance on the water.

Unwind indoors or out!

For those who prefer to stay on land, the idyllic spa is a must-visit. Treat yourself to a massage or head to the riverside for an outdoor hot tub session – a real treat for the senses.

We very reluctantly left the tranquil poolside to spend a lovely evening at The Lock Bar and Kitchen – an ultra-cosy way to end the day.
