About Great Fosters

Stroude Road, Egham
Surrey, TW20 9UR

Great Fosters is a wonderful example of Elizabethan architecture.  Set amongst 50 acres of stunning formal gardens, the hotel makes the perfect venue for a wedding ceremony and reception. This grand building became a hotel in the 1930s and has been sympathetically converted by the Sutcliffe Family. Great Fosters possesses a plethora of original details and features and is designated as a Scheduled Historic Monument and Grade 1 listed building. Tempting menus are combined with vintage wines to ensure that your wedding breakfast is a gourmet experience, while the hotel’s gardens – with a Japanese bridge, lake, fountain and Saxon moat – provide an idyllic backdrop for photographs. Following the celebrations, why not stay overnight in one of our 41 luxurious suites or rooms. Special room rates are available for wedding guests too. Our professional and experienced wedding team will be delighted to advise and assist in planning and organising an unforgettable day.

A Perfect Day
Venue Service

By Rachel, on 01 Jul 2019Date of Wedding - 15 Jun 2019

Thank you and your team so much for all your help over Georgia and David’s wedding. They could not have wished for a more perfect day. All the staff were amazing and nothing was too much trouble even the weather turned out fine. We have the happiest memories and loved every minute of it.

A fabulous Day
Venue Service

By Georgia & David, on 01 Jul 2019Date of Wedding - 15 Jun 2019

Thank you so much for everything over the last weekend, it was such an amazing day we all really did have a great time! The staff were all amazing and the food and drink great! I’m sure we will see you again soon!

HUGE Thank You
Venue Service

By Melissa Jane, on 01 Jul 2019Date of Wedding - 03 Jun 2019

David and I would like to say a HUGE thank you to yourself and all the team who helped make our day extra special and smooth. We had such a wonderful time. Thank you for our lovely card and drink in our room. Was so nice to walk into the room and see that. Sorry I never got a chance to say goodbye the next day. Hope you liked your plant. Can you tell me the name of that lovely man who was with you in the morning when I came downstairs. He helped me get into my car? He was helping a lot during the evening as well. I would like to send a thank you card :)

What an Amazing Wedding

What an amazing wedding it was !! Everybody had such a brilliant time. We’ve had so many gorgeous messages from our guests, all full of praise for Great Fosters ! Well done and thank you to Jose and all his team.

Amazing day but disappointing service before
Venue Service

By Stephanie, on 26 Jul 2019Date of Wedding - 04 Jan 2019

We had our wedding and reception at Great Fosters and the day was absolutely perfect but the communication in the lead up was disappointing. We had to change co-coordinators as our was not able to meet us and had not contacted us to arrange sooner. We felt the service was very un-personal and at times unhelpful. However, on the day Jose was the manager on duty and was absolutely fantastic.

Beautiful Venue, rude staff who are not helpful
Venue Service

By Leah Mouatt, on 14 Jan 2019Date of Wedding - 19 Apr 2018

The venue is stunning you can not fault it! My Partner and I were spending £36k on our wedding but according to the wedding planners at Great Fosters that is not their average budget. The wedding co-ordinator I was given was shocking, so bad I ended up requesting a new one. She miss quoted the price of the day which we agreed to and paid our deposit and signed contracts based on, only to be told at a later stage this was wrong and we would need to pay more. I was also told that the wedding room the bride and groom are given the night of the wedding could be upgraded (you would only need to pay the additional costs from room x to room y) however this isn't the case. If you cant see the room they were giving you to one of your guests (its too noisy a room to rent out to anyone outside of the wedding party I was told) you have to pay the full fee for the other room. In the end we cancelled our wedding here as we couldn't believe how awful the staff were. Whilst it is beautiful, it is also very expensive when you add the packages together and the staff are appealing.

Thank you!!

By Yvonne & Nick, on 31 Jul 2017Date of Wedding - 05 Jul 2017

Nick and I would both like to say how grateful we are for Giulia's assistance and help throughout our wedding planning process. We would also like to thank the reservations team, Jose, Danesh and everyone that helped us. We would certainly like to spend an anniversary at GF in the near future. The buffet was absolutely fantastic and bounteous indeed. The food and drinks all round were enjoyed by our guests too. We highly recommend GF and we were delighted that you were able to accommodate our requests. We look forward to staying at your hotel in the near future. Warm regards from us both. Yvonne & Nick

Thank You!
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Glenister, on 03 Jul 2017Date of Wedding - 29 Jun 2017

We just wanted to say THANK YOU to you and Jose especially for making our day the best it could be. The rooms were beautiful and the Barn took my breath away. Thank you for all your patience and support! And Jose was fantastic on the day, he made us feel relaxed and our guests were so happy. Great Fosters is such a beautiful venue with fantastic staff to match. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts from me and Dan, our friends and family. I'm sure our next engaged friends will be getting married at Great Fosters! All of the suppliers were fabulous especially Nicola with the flowers, Party Lights and of course, Damian the DJ from Firebird. All the best for the future !!

Our Wedding Day
Venue Service

By Sara & Rob, on 13 Jul 2017Date of Wedding - 25 Jun 2017

We would like to thank very much Giulia and Jose for organising such an amazing day for us and please also pass on our thanks to the wonderful staff you had working on our day. We had an absolutely amazing wedding and also had so many positive comments about the venue, the food and the staff. We most certainly be coming back to celebrate as often as we can to Great Fosters as it will always hold a very special place in our hearts. Many thanks. Sara

The wedding was amazing,
Venue Service

By Sarah & James Bower, on 05 Jul 2017Date of Wedding - 23 Jun 2017

The wedding was amazing, surpassed all our expectations, the Barn and Orangery looked incredible and better than we hoped. We knew we would have Jose on the day, but did not realise how hands on he would be from the moment we arrived and how attentive yet discreet in his support, and organising the rest of the staff. All our guests were so impressed with the venue, food and particularly the service, which was excellent throughout the entire day. Clearly, it was also very easy for all our suppliers to work with you on the day; the florist, Firebird, band etc. everything was taken care of - we didn't have to get involved with anything.

Thank you
Venue Service

By Lauren & Michael, on 25 Jul 2017Date of Wedding - 03 Jun 2017

A very BIG thank you to you and the team for all of your help and expertise organising our wedding- we had the perfect day! We have had so many compliments from our guests about the food, fabulous organisation and how friendly and helpful the staff were on the day- we cannot thank you enough as the smooth running is down to your expert approach. We very much hope to visit in the future to celebrate anniversaries and birthdays! Many thanks again. Lauren and Michael x
