The Place

Barnett Hill Hotel is the newest member of the Alexander Hotels family joining the Group in September 2016.

Barnett Hill is a beautiful Queen Anne style property, built in 1905, set within 26 acres of lovingly maintained gardens and woodlands, sitting in the heart of the Surrey Hill area of outstanding natural beauty just outside Guildford, Surrey. This idyllic location is 15 minutes from Guildford town and 45 mins from Central London. Since 1944 Barnett Hill has been used for training, conference and events, with bedrooms later being added; to date it now serves as a beautiful venue for leisure, dining, wedding and conference events. Bedrooms at Barnett Hill show historic and contemporary personalities. Each room is individually decorated, many are in the main house and other located in an adjacent bespoke accommodation building. Our new owners have exciting plans for refurbishing and redeveloping the property to give it that Alexander Hotels sparkle. These plans are well underway with the main hotel areas and bedrooms due to be completed this Spring with a luxury spa development also planned.
