Check Rates


The 4-star Runnymede-on-Thames Hotel & Spa occupies an idyllic spot on the River Thames, near the historic Runnymede Meadows spot where the Magna Carta was sealed in 1215. It is just outside Egham in Surrey -- close to Windsor and its famous Castle, Ascot Royal Racecouse and LEGOLAND® Windsor Resort -- and also features an award-winning spa, a gym, two swimming pools, and a range of boating options including its own unique creation, the HotTug – a relaxing hot-tub soak combined with a tug-boat cruise along the river.

The Runnymede-on-Thames Hotel & Spa sits between Egham and Staines-upon-Thames, about a mile and a half on either side of both towns. It is just over five miles from Windsor -- home of Windsor Castle, the oldest standing castle in the world -- and St. George’s Chapel, and seven miles from LEGOLAND® Windsor Resort. Royal Ascot Racecourse is seven miles away and Chessington World of Adventures is 11 miles. Alternatively, the area is great for walking outdoors, especially along the River Thames, and for boating or relaxing by the river.

The hotel offers guests a choice three on-site restaurants, including: the Lock Bar and Kitchen -- a relaxed and informal restaurant serving seasonal home-from-home-style food, as well as Sunday roasts; the buffet-style Leftbank Restaurant; and The Lounge, which serves light lunches, drinks, teas, coffees and cakes. The on-site spa has a 5-Bubble-Spa award from the Good Spa Guide, and includes a eucalyptus steam room, a Jacuzzi, a sauna and a variety of treatments (extra charges apply). The property's sports and fitness facilities include a gym, tennis courts, a dance studio, and two swimming pools -- both indoor and outdoor (the latter is open from May until September only).

All rooms include complimentary use of the hotel’s spa, gym and outdoor pool, and its private jetty relaxation area on the Thames. They also come with free Wi-Fi, tea- and coffee-making facilities, air-conditioning, bathrobes and slippers, a mini bar, iron and ironing board, blackout curtains, LCD televisions with movies on demand, same-day laundry and 24-hour room service. Many also offer river views or views of the courtyard.
