With a guestlist that’s included everyone from Charlie Chaplin to Henry VIII, Great Fosters is a regal retreat steeped in nearly five centuries of history. Grand four-poster beds, Flemish tapestries, and deep soaking tubs distinguish many of the hotel’s 56 suites and bedrooms, while dishes like Herdwick spring lamb and slow-cooked duck ragu don the menus at the Michelin-starred Tudor Pass and the Estate Grill. Be sure to stop into the spa for one of their royalty-worthy treatments.

    The closest independent five-star hotel to Heathrow airport, just 15 minutes from T3!

    At Great Fosters, there's more than enough to fill 48 hours - with two restaurants, our heated pool*, fabulous listed gardens, afternoon teas, treatments and more - without mentioning Royal Windsor - there's scant chance to enjoy everything at Great Fosters in just 48 hours. So why not do 72?

    Throughout 2024, subject to rate availability, we're delighted to offer 3 nights for the price of 2! Quite the invitation we think, to enjoy the splendour of Great Fosters in full - so let's see what you can get up to, with your 72 hours of regal relaxation...

    Dine in style...

    Delicious decisions...

    At Great Fosters, you will be spoilt for choice for supper - from the laid back luxury of The Estate Grill, to the memory-making 1-Michelin star experience of The Tudor Pass, you have two nights sorted for sure!

    But there's more - in the hazy summer sunshine, why not enjoy one of our Enid-Blyton-worthy picnics in the gardens, or afternoon tea overlooking the Saxon moat? In the winter, cosy up by the fire in the Anne Boleyn drawing room for tea, or maybe hunker down in the chic cocktail bar for our iconic Great Fosters burger (also by the fire of course!) - and year round, our Sunday Lunches are a real treat too.

    Whatever you opt for, make sure you pack your appetite! Naturally, being minutes from Windsor in the Surrey countryside, we have plenty of fabulous options locally too, that our concierge team will be delighted to make recommendations and arrangements for.

    Utopia Retreat

    Time to relax...

    With your three night break, take some time for you with a fabulous TempleSpa treatment at Utopia Retreat. Utopia Retreat at Great Fosters includes our art-deco heated outdoor pool & hot tub, as well as a series of treatment rooms, including our medieval treatment tent for a unique al fresco experience.

    If you're feeling the need to burn off a scone or two, we have tennis courts available for booking (and coaching if you fancy it), plus a partnership with the wonderful Egham Orbit - a stunning new fitness destination moments from Great Fosters, available to book & use at a preferential rate. Naturally, there's plenty of space for a jog around the grounds too!

  • Gastronomic Dinner, Bed & Breakfast

    Valid for Travel Now Through 30 Apr 2025

    24 hours of indulgence - a gastronomic occasion

    Introducing our Gastronomic Dinner, Bed & Breakfast; 24 hours of indulgence, including the 7-course tasting menu from the Michelin-starred Tudor Pass restaurant. Available Wednesday - Saturday, subject to availability in The Tudor Pass.

    The Tudor Pass - Michelin Starred Dining

    The Tudor Pass is an intimate, gastronomic restaurant with only seven tables and is open Wednesday - Saturday for both lunch & dinner. The reimagining of an icon, The Tudor Pass is a new chapter in the storied history of this special restaurant, named so to celebrate the unique interactive service style diners can expect – without the noise of an open kitchen.

    Completely refurbished recently, The Tudor Pass is both elegant & intimate, with linen textured wall coverings, sumptuous velvet seating with patterns inspired by nature, and a grand tapestry and huge stone fireplace offering focal points. This unique dining room, contrasting Tudor heritage with contemporary furnishings, is the perfect restaurant for a celebratory occasion or a gastronomic treat.

    Meet The Chef: Alex Payne

    The Tudor Pass is the reimagining of our iconic Tudor Room restaurant, and we are delighted to introduce Executive Head Chef Alex Payne. Alex previous to Great Fosters was at The Thames Table at Crockers, where he was the Head Chef. Alex was born in Egham and spent his childhood only a mile from Great Fosters so it’s wonderful to have him 'come home'.

    Alex’s signature tasting menu, which is available at both lunch & dinner is inspired by classic flavours and seasonal ingredients, harmonised by modern techniques. Having worked for several renowned chefs including Heston Blumenthal and Gordon Ramsay, he expresses his passion for food through his enthusiasm, creativity and theatre. Alex comments “My style of food is designed around classical dishes and flavours but I endeavour to find interesting ways to refine and modernise them to create memories for our diners. By using only the best possible seasonal and local ingredients to produce bold flavours I will be creating an experience for our The Tudor Pass guests that they will warmly remember for years to come’’.
