Nestled in beautiful countryside near to the River Mole and with excellent transport links the Woodlands Park Hotel is a superb Surrey wedding venue offering true Victorian splendour in a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere.

 

A short history of Woodlands Park Hotel

The wonderfully grand Woodlands Park Hotel is a Victorian gothic mansion built with no expense spared in 1885 for Mr F C Bryant, the son of the William Bryant, co-founder of the Bryant and May Match Company. Along with its Grand Hall of rich oak panelling it became renowned for being one of the first country houses to have electric lighting.

Popular with Surrey’s Edwardian Society the Bryant family hosted lavish parties and dinners and was regularly visited by The Prince of Wales (later to become King Edward Vll) along with the actress Lillie Langtry.

Sold twice to two further families in 1897 and 1911, improvements included the addition of the beautifully ornate fireplaces in the Ground Floor rooms and the wonderful marble fireplace in the Grand Hall.

After the Wall Street Crash of 1929 the house became a luxury Hotel, costing from four guineas a week, and later becoming a home for the elderly after World War Two up until 1975. The House re-opened as a hotel in 1981 after extensive renovation and modernisation and in 1988 The Prince of Wales Suite along with further bedrooms were added.
