Bags of facilities will keep all the family amused. Unwind with a glass of champagne in the riverside whirlpool and watch the comings and goings on the River Thames. Or why not mess about on the water yourself and hire one of the hotel's day boats instead? Splash around in the indoor and outdoor swimming pools, enjoy a pampering treatment in the award-winning spa, play a game of tennis, and kick back with a film in the outdoor cinema (summer only). A playroom with PS4 console and Xbox will keep young ones amused plus there's food to feed the ducks and treats for the family pet too. There's a river theme inside with toy ducks on display in the lounge.

Style & Character

The Runnymede suits everyone - families with young kids and teens, couples, business travellers, guests celebrating an occasion. We love the quirky giant ornamental apples and over-sized deck chairs in the garden, which are fun to clamber up into.

Service & Facilities

An early morning swim in the decent-sized indoor pool is a great way to start the day. Dog-friendly duplexes, which have a private entrance, offer a welcome pack of pooch pillows, bowls, towels and treats.
