Some work peers and I visited Windsor last weekend as part of the PA Life Club’s second FAM Trip with The Agendo Organisation and the Royal Borough of Windsor.
We travelled down Friday afternoon for an overnight stay at the Foxhills Hotel, and what a stunning venue this three-star hotel is. Located between 400 acres of Surrey countryside, I can hardly believe how close this hotel is to London and Heathrow Airport.
Guests really do want for nothing here, as there is plenty to keep them busy. On-site there is a spa, complete with two indoor and two outdoor pools, a golf course, driving range, tennis court, private dining and numerous meeting spaces.
During our stay, we got to sample some of the delicious fine dining options, from guinea fowl and venison, to plaice and passion fruit soufflé, while our glasses where never short of a bit of bubbly. We really were taken care of.
What makes this hotel unique is the fact that the bedrooms are not connected to the hotel and are about a two minutes’ walk away from the main building. Plus. Each bedroom is quite exclusive, either offering a balcony, small garden and various views of the grounds. It reminds me of a little mini village for guests to stay in overnight.
There are plenty of meeting spaces to choose from too, including The Clubhouse, Library, Pine Room, Beech and many more, all with varying room sizes to ensure every need is taken care of. Plus, if you’re looking for your next location for your annual team-building day, Foxhills can offer group cycling events, croquet, corporate golf days and much more.
After we finished our morning soak in the spa, we ventured on into Windsor town. There’s so much on offer here, from its wide range of shops and restaurants to Windsor Castle, it would be difficult not to impress clients in this town.
Our next pit-stop is the Sir Christopher Wren Hotel. Situated in the heart of the town just a stone’s throw from Eton College, this hotel couldn’t be in a better location. With Windsor train station a few minutes’ walk away too, guests can travel to the hotel with ease.
Inside, a variety of meeting spaces are also available, including the Princess Suite, Sienna Room, Buckingham Suite, Balmoral Suite and many more. Getting the chance to look around the hotel and its many rooms really gave the PAs and myself a feel for what this venue can offer. Plus, thanks to its central location, what more could you want?
After our show round, we were treated to a luxury afternoon tea in The Brasserie, before we all departed and headed home. I can’t thank Agendo and the Royal Borough of Windsor enough for giving us the chance to experience this town again. I couldn’t fault the hospitality we were shown at Foxhills and Sir Christopher Wren, both were so welcoming and attentive during our time visiting.
So, if you’re looking to get out of London, make sure you consider Windsor for your next trip or event.
