Having visited the Macdonald Hotel in Windsor and loved the stay, we were presented with a fantastic opportunity to revisit one of our favourite hotelier offerings, but this time in leafy Surrey – and we were rather impressed!
Frimley Hall is a very charming historical setting and we enjoyed every minute of our visit late last year. The hotel and its setting seem perfect for a romantic getaway, a short escape or even a wedding – it really is gorgeous.
Firstly, we strongly recommend staying in a feature room during your stay at Frimley Hall! We were lucky enough to be in the Princess Alice room (which really touched my partner, who`s childhood favourite book happened to be Alice in Wonderland), and this expansive 2nd floor room had a lot of character and antique charm. Also, its bay window perfectly frames the gorgeous grounds of Frimley Hall below. It was also a rather nice touch to receive a bottle of pink fizz on arrival to toast the beginning of what was a lovely evening.
For more space, the hotel recommends a suite which can easily cater for 4 guests and are also packed with the antique detailing and charm of the feature rooms.
There is also a spa and gym on site for all of your needs. We didn`t have the pleasure of visiting the spa, but the hotel describe it as your ticket to tip-top well-being. Feeling energetic? Take a fitness class or hit the Technogym, then bask in the heat of the steam room after enjoying the 17-metre pool. Whether you’re taking time out for yourself, sharing quality time with a loved one or having fun with the girls, we’ve got just the Spa treatment for you. How about a hot stone massage or revitalising beauty treatment? Better yet, book one of our Spa breaks. There are plenty of golf courses nearby, too. Whatever your pleasure, we’ve got it covered.` Intriguing!
The Linden Restaurant
Recently awarded two AA Rosettes the Linden restaurant is of a very high standard and utilises only the freshest local ingredients to hone in a very enjoyable dining experience. Perfect ambiance, dark atmospheric lighting and attentive service only stood to enhance the overall experience for us and made for a delectable winter meal. If you are looking for something a little more casual and relaxed, then you can take a seat in the Sandhurst Lounge for a cocktail, or two.
Feeling rather cold and chilly on arrival, I went for the pot roast corn fed free range chicken supreme, with fondant potato, buttered baby spinach and café au lait jus. Perfectly moist and with oodles of balanced flavours, this dish had heart and elegance in abundance – delicious. For something a little more delicate, I would also recommend the pan seared organic Salmon fillet with buttered new potatoes and spring greens. The salmon was light, wonderfully fresh and packed full of flavour. This trend of delicate food, but with hearty flavour, really is a trend we experienced throughout our dining experience. To finish, my partner went for the vanilla créme Brule and shortbread biscuit – which was simply gorgeous. There is also a range of dishes available for a small supplement, depending on how extravagant you are feeling!
Breakfast is also served in the Linden restaurant and we have to say we were left a little disappointed. We found quite a few other visitors waiting to be seated, as the result of a sudden influx of hungry diners.
