About

When you deserve a delicious break from the usual routines, nowhere fits the bill more perfectly than the sublime Macdonald Berystede Hotel & Spa. This glorious Berkshire retreat has everything you need for a day of decadence or a stay of complete contentment, so get ready to surrender to an exquisite temptation.

With Ascot Racecourse a two-minute drive away, the Berystede buzzes with life come race weekends. Artworks and room names give a playful nod to its horsey neighbours (or should that be neigh-bours?) - for example, you can enjoy a cocktail on the Royal Enclosure Terrace.

But there’s more to Macdonald Berystede than just its fabulous Ascot location. Outside, landscaped gardens and a grand, turreted facade provide a fairytale backdrop for your pampering break. Inside, there’s a real country-house-retreat feel, thanks to magnificent stone fireplaces to the sweeping oak staircases. The main building is Grade II-listed and dates back to the 18th century, while the spa boasts a contemporary glass-fronted extension.

Besides Ascot, the local area plays host to some extremely picturesque countryside. The understandably popular Legoland is a short drive away, and you can soak up the history and heritage of Windsor as well. Be sure to find time to visit the Castle while you’re in town, but don’t forget the high-end stores as well!

With more than 120 luxurious bedrooms and all the amenities you’ll ever need, you just know overnight getaways will be perfect at the Macdonald Berystede Hotel & Spa. You’ll also enjoy the tranquil spa with its large indoor pool, outdoor hydrotherapy pool and six peaceful treatment rooms. The gym is modern, welcoming and friendly, and the award-winning Acanthus restaurant is a must-visit for lovers of fine dining and ambient surroundings.

Please note: This Hotel operates a cashless system.

The Spa & Wellness at Macdonald Berystede Hotel & Spa

Whether you’re planning a catch-up, a celebration, or simply need some me-time, nothing says indulgence like a spa break to the Macdonald Berystede Hotel & Spa.

An oasis of tranquility nestled in leafy grounds, it makes the perfect pampering retreat. Put your robe on and your worries down, because the facilities here are extensive, with everything you need to help you unwind. 

First stop, the bright and airy indoor pool - at 18m it’s long enough for laps, while comfy beds are perfect for poolside lounging. Go on a thermal journal through the sauna and steam room, then cool off in the ice igloo and experience showers. 

There are a range of luxurious Elemis treatments to try, but will you melt into a massage or treat your skin to a facial? Whatever you decide, the relaxation room or a luxuriously heated stone bed will be waiting for you when you’ve finished.

Be sure to leave time for the outdoor hydrotherapy pool. Surrounded by woodland and bathed in the sounds of nature, there’s ample space for a catch-up with your nearest and dearest. Or just feel the sun on your face as you lie on one of the sun loungers dotted throughout the manicured garden.

Apply the final finishing touches to your spa escape with a mani/pedi or beauty treat, then float out of the spa, glowing from top to toe.

The Gym & Fitness at Macdonald Berystede Hotel & Spa

Serious about your fitness? So is the Macdonald Berystede Hotel & Spa. Whether you’re already a self-confessed gym bunny or are considering restarting your regime after a break, friendly staff are on-hand to help you reach your full fitness potential.

Called Vital Health & Wellbeing, the gym is kitted out with the very best Life Fitness equipment, with free-weight and cardio zones, as well as a stretching area. You can also track your progress from the Life Fitness Connect app.

Add some variety to your workout with a group exercise session. There are low-intensity options like yoga or high-energy cardio sessions from Les Mills. They’re a fantastic way to get fit and have fun with friends.

But if you thought visiting the gym was all hard work and rough towels, think again. Here, fitness, first-class service and luxury go hand in hand. Where else could your post-workout routine involve a delicious, nutritious lunch on a sunny terrace, a relaxing massage or a sauna?

Restaurants & Food at Macdonald Berystede Hotel & Spa

Ultra-indulgent spa breaks need ultra-indulgent food to match. Luckily at the Macdonald Berystede, you’ll find the food is as fine as the spa treatments! 

Acanthus Restaurant

This AA-rosette-awarded restaurant serves delicious modern European cuisine in elegant and contemporary surroundings. Enjoy your dinner with a side-helping of beautiful views. Large windows afford a breathtaking backdrop of the hotel’s landscaped gardens, while the dining room centres around a pretty ornamental tree.

Royal Enclosure Terrace & Gardens

Time for a sundowner? The Royal Enclosure Terrace provides the perfect suntrap for a cocktail or two, with views over the beautiful grounds. There are shady spots if it gets too hot. The terrace is open from April to October, depending on the British weather.

Diadem Bar & Wentworth Lounge

When it’s time for a nightcap, there’s no better place than this cosy bar. Sink into a leather sofa and sip a whisky or signature wine from the cellar, or get the bartender to mix you something fruity.

The Spa facilities and therapists are really good. However hotel food, accommodation and attention to detail leaves a lot to be desired.

My best friend & I have very demanding, sometimes stressful, but rewarding jobs. A morning of complete relaxation, a head, neck, shoulder & back massage followed by lunch was just what we both needed. Would recommend it to anyone.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does Macdonald Berystede Hotel & Spa do afternoon tea?

Sweet tooth? Walk right this way. The afternoon tea at the Berystede is a must-try, served on the terrace in the summer, or in the cosy bar or lounge if it’s chilly. 

Expect three stylish tiers of pure indulgence, with cute cakes and on the bottom, warm scones and savoury pastries in the middle and dainty finger sandwiches on the top. Don’t miss the afternoon teas with themes that match the season, for example - enjoy tea with Santa when December comes around.

Does Macdonald Berystede Hotel & Spa have a swimming pool?

It sure does. There are 18 glorious metres to swim in, so it’s ideal for lengths, laps or a spot of aqua aerobics. The pool area has plenty of natural daylight and fantastic views of the grounds.

Does Macdonald Berystede Hotel & Spa offer accommodation?

The hotel has more than 120 rooms, with categories ranging from Standard to Suites. Here on a special occasion when only the best will do? Book a room in the turret. Turret suites have four-poster beds, separate living and dining areas and gorgeous garden views.

Is there disabled access at Macdonald Berystede Hotel & Spa?

Yes, the hotel is fully accessible. Accessible bedrooms have extra space, wet rooms, handrails and reachable alarm facilities. The spa has a hoist into the pool, along with accessible changing rooms and treatment rooms. 

What time is check-in and check-out at Macdonald Berystede Hotel & Spa Hotel, Spa & Golf Resort?

Check-in is from 3pm and check-out is at 11am.

What is there to do at the Macdonald Berystede Hotel & Spa?

Have a day at the races! Ascot Racecourse is the home of Royal Ascot, the ultimate stage for the best racehorses in the world. But it also plays host to a wide range of smaller race meetings, plus the course is a popular venue for concerts, conferences, banquets, exhibitions and parties throughout the year.

How far is Ascot from Macdonald Berystede Hotel & Spa?

It’s just over a mile away, so about a 20-minute power walk. Ascot is really pretty with a high street filled with boutique shops, restaurants and independent stores, so it’s well worth the effort.

Is Macdonald Berystede Hotel & Spa family friendly?

Yes. Family rooms and complimentary cots are available on request, there’s a children’s menu to keep the well-fed and watered and children can blow off steam in the garden.

Children under 16 can splash about in the swimming pool between 9am and 11am and between 4pm and 7pm when accompanied by an adult, but they can only use the indoor pool.

The big draw for kids has to be Legoland, just a 12-mile-drive from the hotel’s front door. Older thrill-seekers will love the rides at Thorpe Park, just a 20-minute drive away. The Harry Potter Studios and Windsor Castle are also within easy reach.

Is Macdonald Berystede Hotel & Spa Hotel, Spa & Golf Resort dog-friendly?

Sorry - no pets allowed, although guide and service dogs can stay for free.

Does Macdonald Berystede Hotel & Spa have a golf course?

There’s not a golf course on-site, but the Berystede Hotel & Spa does offer golf break as it’s partnered with nearby Pine Ridge Golf Club, a 12-minute drive away. Enjoy 18 holes of championship golf on undulating greens with year-round playing conditions.
