Those that have visited over the last few months will have caught a glimpse of the exciting refurbishment works that are well underway. With Warner Hotels now offering breaks from autumn 2024, we wanted to share a sneak peek of what's to come once the hotel transitions later this year.
All 205 rooms will have a stylish new-look with characterful artwork that reflects the history and natural beauty of the surrounding area. Fans of The Runnymede will be pleased to see that the signature duck association will remain! There will also be 25 newly built rooms and those overlooking the river will have the added luxury of balconies.
On top of providing a restful night’s sleep, each room will also have plenty of perks such as a generous tea tray, soft bathrobes and toiletries.
There will be a choice of two restaurants – Market Kitchen and Brasserie32. Market Kitchen will replace Leftbank and will feature a deli bar, fresh fish counter and a roast of the day, carved to order. At the other side of the property, Brasserie32 will be located in the former Lock Bar & Kitchen with a menu filled with British classics.
The property will also feature The Coffee Nest, an informal setting for sweet treats, tea and coffee, alongside further bars and lounges.
A Brand-new Live Lounge
Those who would otherwise visit London for the theatre won’t be disappointed, as the hotel will host a diverse programme of entertainment in the brand-new Live Lounge. From comedians to tribute acts and party bands, every stay promises an impressive line-up of unique shows from incredible entertainers.
Spa & Wellness
Alongside plenty of entertainment, there will be ample time for R&R at the spa with pools, a sauna, steam room, state-of-art gym, studio room for yoga and other fitness classes, a relaxation lounge, and an extended wellness programme. This is in addition to a range of soothing treatments designed to nourish your mind, body, and soul. From May to September (weather permitting), guests will also have use of the outdoor pool with sun loungers.
For guests who want a more active staycation, there will be a whole host of activities to choose from including tennis, archery, laser pistol shooting, tasting experiences and cooking demos. During the summer months, there will also be boat hire available from the property’s private jetty.
Breaks are available to book online at warnerleisurehotels.co.uk/hotels/the-runnymede-on-thames for autumn 2024 onwards. In the meantime, the hotel will continue to operate as an independent property for stays, dining and spa treatments and days, though we do advise that the hotel might not be looking its best due to construction work.
