Frimley Hall was originally designed and built by Mr G W Fowler.
He later sold it to Mr J F Wright whose fortune and fame came
from the manufacture of domestic boilers and soap, namely Wright's
Coal Tar Soap, which is still in use today. His wife,
formally Miss Avery, came from the family who manufactured Avery
Scales, which were soon to belong to housewives across the
Our beautiful hotel, including its William Morris design
wallpaper, is a Grade 2 listed building and one of the few
remaining buildings of its size and age in the area.
Macdonald Frimley Hall Hotel & Spa is well known locally
for its excellent cuisine, with the Linden Restaurant holding two
AA Rosettes. It is also regarded as the premier wedding venue
in Surrey and is often host to large corporate companies for
conferences and annual award dinners. Guests can enjoy our
luxurious Vital Spa which is fully equipped with a 17 metre
swimming pool, rock sauna, steam room, state of the art Technogym
and five beauty therapy rooms using the finest Elemis products.
My career started some 36 years ago in Manchester, washing
dishes in a four star hotel. During my early years of
training, I was fortunate enough to be sponsored by my employers to
attend college on a three year day release course to learn to
become a chef, as one of my passions is cookery. I decided
that this was not the career path for me so then spent the next 12
years learning about every aspect of hotel life and eventually
gaining my first General Manager position in 1992. Over the
last 25 years my survival (and sometimes sanity) can be attributed
to the love and support of my wife and four children - two boys and
twin girls! I am fortunate enough to have a hugely supportive
team here, who are fully committed to delivering the highest
standards of hospitality, quality and service to our guests.
I do hope that you have a memorable and enjoyable visit to
Macdonald Frimley Hall Hotel & Spa.
