hire the uk's only hottug
at the runnymede-on-thames in surrey
Please note our HotTug is now in storage and will be available to hire again from May 2017
The HotTug at the runnymede-on-thames hotel offers you a totally new and unique mobile bathing experience that combines the best of two watery worlds, a relaxing soak in a hot tub and a cruise down our picturesque stretch of the river Thames.
A wood fired boat-cum-hot-tub, this ingenious little vessel is the newest, and most quirky way of bobbing along the River Thames. The brain child of Dutch designer Frank de Bruijn, the HotTug uses a specially developed wood-burning stove to keep the water a balmy 38°C, and a silent electric engine to send up to six soakers merrily downstream.
Float down the River Thames as you sip a cold drink and soak in steaming hot water - a truly fantastic experience you'll never forget. When the tug is filled, there is only a narrow rim between you and the water, making you feel truly at one with your watery surroundings!
Please note that the HotTug is available to hire from May to August:
- The HotTug is available for non-residents to hire from Monday-Friday*
- During weekends and bank holidays, hire is exclusively for hotel residents - why not book a weekend break with us!*
