Gorse Hill hotel was originally built as a country mansion for John Ingram in 1910, but he lost his fortune with the sinking of the Titanic, and was unable to ever make it his home. The property was bombed in World War II, an was later used as a transport training college before being turned into a hotel. It was refurbished in 2017.
Set in the pretty countryside of Surrey less than 10 minutes' drive from Woking, Gorse Hill is surrounded by extensive landscaped gardens. Guildford, a 20-minute drive away, is home to the Guildford Museum, Guildford Cathedral and medieval Guildford Castle.
The modern mansion building now features a well-equipped gym and an à la carte restaurant and bar, which serves fresh dishes and crafted cocktails. The bedrooms are all elegantly furnished to a high standard. You can explore the public areas of the hotel for yourself with the Virtual Venue Tour.
