De Vere Wotton House unveils £6m renovation

De Vere Wotton House in Surrey, part of the Principal Hotel Company, has unveiled its £6m renovation programme, which is part of a wider £50m investment project in the De Vere country estate hotels portfolio.

The sympathetic renovation at the 17th century Dorking estate has been designed to place the historic Wotton House mansion back at the very heart of the venue, where traditional values combine seamlessly with modern day luxury.

De Vere Wotton House, which sits in 12 acres of listed gardens, has completed all of its bedroom renovations, and has seen 16 new junior suites added to its inventory, all of which are located in the mansion house, bringing the total number of bedrooms to 127.

The transformation has also included a full restoration of Wotton’s principal event space, The Evelyn Suite, which has been returned to grandeur with a fresh new look and sophisticated detailing inspired by the building’s rich architecture.  A neutral palette has been incorporated into the suite to make the most of the natural daylight and picturesque views of the Grade II listed gardens, making it the ideal location for both conferences and weddings.

Caroline Morrone, general manager at Wotton House, said: “As a popular venue for the meetings, conferences and private events market, the renovation project has been planned and designed to appeal to all our customers and provide a contemporary standout venue in stunning surroundings which pays homage to its history and heritage as a listed architectural building.”

De Vere Wotton House is located in the Surrey Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and just 10 minutes from Junction 9 of the M25.

De Vere Wotton House boasts 20 function rooms including The Evelyn Suite for up to 180 guests and The Wotton Suite for up to 200 guests.  The venue has state-of-the-art event technology onsite including free hi-speed Wi-Fi and a dedicated events team and brigade of chefs on hand to create bespoke meetings and event menus.

Delegates at De Vere Wotton House have access to the gym, indoor pool, sauna, steam room and tennis courts, as well as the immaculately kept gardens, which are a highlight of the hotel.
