Modernist style meets motor-racing heritage at Brooklands Hotel, set directly on the historic turn-of-the-century Brooklands circuit, the first of its kind in the world. The purpose-built hotel is a stylish, contemporary building in glass and stone, and is located next to Mercedes-Benz World, offering on-track experiences and vintage vehicle exhibits, and a 5-minute walk from Brooklands Museum, home to a range of classic racing cars and aeroplanes. RHS Garden Wisley is 15 minutes away by car and the Thorpe Park entertainment complex is 20 minutes' drive from the hotel.
Art Deco flair, inspired by the racetrack's 1920s and 1930s prime, runs throughout Brooklands Hotel, which has vast wood-lined lobby hung with a dramatic wood sculpture. Guests can enjoy British cuisine in the 1907 Restaurant, Bar & Grill, which is named after the year Brooklands circuit opened and features wood floors, leather banquettes and floor-to-ceiling windows. The plush bar, quirkily decorated with silver propellers, has an outside terrace. There is also a gym and a chic spa, whose main attraction is a rustic-vibe outdoor relaxation area with a hot tub overlooking the racetrack.
Guestrooms are kitted out in modern décor with a smart red, black and grey colour palette. All rooms have free Wi-Fi and flat-screen TVs with a wide range of channels. Higher room categories add sitting areas and balconies with track views, while 1- and 2-bedroom suites have living rooms, dining areas and furnished terraces. Room service is available 24 hours.
