Weekend Escapes
Read our review of Fairmont Windsor Park

Set in 40 acres of pristine grounds is the brand new super-luxe Fairmont Windsor Park. It’s a country estate – about an hour from London – with the style props to match its royal neighbours. Spa with your friends, enjoy date night dining or a mini break with the family, Fairmont caters for all, with the aim for you to escape the everyday for the extraordinary.

Previously a private home, Fairmont was rebuilt from scratch while faithfully respecting the exterior of the Jacobean manor house that previously occupied the spot. The hotel was a blockbuster project that took four years to complete and a no-messing budget in the region of £200 million.

There are 251 rooms and suites – including the new Treehouses showcased at this year’s Chelsea Flower Show. You’ll also find seven bars and restaurants to try. There’s the wood-panelled whisky lounge Library Club, opposite to the Orchid Tea Room, a charming afternoon tea lounge and a more casual wellness spot, Greens Café. If gin is your thing, you’ll love the Botanicals Bar, located in the Middle Eastern/European restaurant Moreish, offering a range of local and international gins.

Dinner is served in the modern British restaurant 1215, overlooking the private terrace and manicured gardens and firmly connected to local history by taking its name from the year the Magna Carta was signed in nearby Runnymede. The menu is a celebration of local, seasonal produce and the highest quality ingredients.

Fairmont also boasts a seriously swish super spa which features a beautiful indoor pool, a courtyard hydrotherapy pool, cryotherapy chamber providing a three-minute blast at minus 110C; a thermal suite, stunning marble Hammam, a Himalayan Salt Room, 18 treatment rooms, hair salon, barbers, an aesthetics skincare clinic and VIP spa room.  And that’s not all there’s also a state of the art gym offering bespoke training, consultations and group classes, plus spin and reformer pilates studios, outdoor gym and tennis courts. You’ll need a lit down after trying that lot.

Rooms from £523. Call to visit the spa or book in for lunch, dinner or afternoon tea.
