Top Hotels for Team Building Activities

9 March 2024

Enjoy quality time together away from the office in our inviting hotels and grounds

Familiarity with team building exercises often starts in school, where you would work together with classmates to complete all manner of puzzles and tasks.

When it comes to team building activities as a business, they can be just as important as in your formative years. Beyond having to resort to awkward office icebreakers or hurriedly compiled team quizzes, organising a team building event can have a positive impact on:

  • Helping your team bond in more creative ways than on a staff night out
  • Integrating new colleagues with established team members
  • Building a sense of trust and improved communication
  • Showcasing the importance of teamwork for wider business success
  • Staff being able to express themselves easier in the workplace

At Macdonald Hotels & Resorts, our friendly hotel teams can arrange a wide variety of team building activities making use of both our scenic locations and leading UK events and attractions nearby.

Team Building at Aviemore Resort, Aviemore

When looking to get out of the office or get together in person as a remote team, then our remarkable destination in the Cairngorms is perfect for exploring the best of nature.

With no less than 75 activities possible both onsite and locally, our team at Aviemore Resort works with a variety of outdoor adventure specialists to deliver team building activities including quad biking, gorge walking, zip gliding and world class golf at neighbouring Spey Valley.

Team Building at Bath Spa, Bath

Alongside the opportunity to explore the enchanting city of Bath and its array of historic landmarks including the Roman Baths, we can arrange for plenty of fantastic outdoor activities as part of a multi-event team building getaway.

Fly hot air balloons over the city’s striking Georgian architecture and survey the countryside beyond, or perhaps try your hand at archery, croquet or even tank driving!

Team Building at The Berystede, Ascot

Our inviting woodland setting in the attractive town of Ascot can be your base for team building activities including a day at the races at Ascot Racecourse.

For those looking for something a little different when getting out of the office, we can also arrange an ‘It’s a Knockout’ inflatables tournament on our private lawns, after which we can invite celebrity entertainers or after-dinner speakers after sampling our fine fare.

Team Building at Drumossie Hotel, Inverness

Visit Inverness for a team building event in 9 acres of serene private grounds. Beyond representing an idyllic natural environment in which to switch off from the usual office routine, it’s also the ideal place to embrace Scottish culture with your very own Highland Games (kilts included for the full experience!).

We can also organise many other activities, such as an exciting treasure hunt around the hotel estate or take the fun indoors with air hockey and target golf. There's also plenty to do in the region in terms of historic sites, with Inverness Castle a must visit during your team's stay.

Team Building at Forest Hills Hotel & Resort, Aberfoyle

Escape to the Trossachs for a mesmerising team building stay, where a ready-made outdoor activity playground exists in the surrounding lochs, hills, mountains and forests of the region.

Our on-site adventure specialists can offer a wealth of action-packed pursuits, where mountain biking through picture-perfect scenery can be swapped for navigation on water via canoe orienteering, sailing and kayaking - while nearby Go Ape is guaranteed to thrill.

Our inviting hotel in leafy Camberley caters for small and large work teams when looking to add something special to your team building socials.

Team Building at Linden Hall Hotel & Spa, Morpeth

With 450 acres of private grounds and the wider tranquillity of Northumberland’s spectacular countryside, bringing your team to our Georgian hotel is to visit a tailormade environment for memorable adventure and team bonding.

For keen golfers, there’s our 18-hole parkland golf course to choose from when looking for a day on the fairways. Away from the greens, you can get muddy with a quad biking or segway trek, after which you can talk it all over with a barbeque and drinks in our courtyard.
