Burford Bridge

Mercure Burford Bridge Hotel, Surrey

The 4 star Mercure Burford Bridge sits at the foot of Box Hill, with Mole River running at the bottom of the spectacular gardens. The 57 en suite rooms each feature air-conditioning, broadband, two telephones with modem connections, tea & coffee making facilities & a minbar. The hotel is ideal for visiting the historic town of Dorking and its scenic surroundings including nearby attractions like Polesden Lacey and Chessington. The hotel boasts a heated outdoor swimming pool, a 2 AA Rosette winning restaurant, cocktail bar and lounge as well as 7 conference and banqueting rooms.

The Hotel was founded in 1254 as the Fox and Hounds and parts of the existing hotel date back to the 16thCentury. In 1882 the hotel became the Hare & Hounds and in 1905, when Surrey Public Trust purchased it, the name changed permanently to the Burford Bridge Hotel. Queen Victoria, Jane Austen, Wordsworth, Sheridan, Keats and Robert Louis Stevenson have all frequented the Burford Bridge over the years.

We have chosen this hotel specifically for its location. It’s not too far from Heathrow or Gatwick airports and it is less than 2 kilometers to the Dorking British Rail station, making travel into the Central City (and elsewhere) a simple matter. It’s handy to the Motorway system we will use to get to/from St Georges and perfectly located for our final rounds at Sunningdale, The Berkshire & Walton Heath.
