On arrival to the hotel (Which is only 50 minutes from central London by train) check in was really easy and smooth and the hotel had a welcoming, warm, homely feel to it that instantly makes you feel relaxed.

Our room for the evening was gorgeous, bright and spacious that overlooked the hotels stunning grounds.

The sunlight from the day light pouring in through the room.

After unpacking and replying to a few emails, we headed downstairs to meet the rest of the agents and our wonderful hosts from Oakley Hall Hotel and Hotel Republic.

While indulging in the beautiful afternoon tea spread and refreshments, we caught up with our hosts and chatted excitedly about the schedule for the next 24 hours during our stay.

It was great to see some familiar faces and to catch up with new friends and colleagues as well.

We were then taken on a tour of the hotel where we got to see the meeting spaces, lovely private dining rooms, and the stunning outdoor grounds.

With 50 bedrooms available in the hotel, it’s also perfect to hire exclusively with really reasonable exclusive high rates.

Following our site visit, we made our way to the coaches waiting outside to take us to the Bombay Sapphire Distillery just 15 minutes up the road.

Laverstoke Mill, which is home of the Bombay Sapphire Distillery, is steeped in over 1000 years of history.

In 2013, Laverstoke Mill became the first distillery and first refurbishment to achieve an ‘Outstanding’ design-stage BREEAM accreditation for its distillery process buildings.

These proposals of design-stage sustainability measures have been carried forward into construction and completion.

After a private tour of the sites, we made our way through to take part in a private cocktail making experience. This was a super fun activity and great for team building and corporate away days. Situated just 15 minutes away from Oakley Hall this activity can easily be arranged for corporate groups. We highly recommend it!

Next it was back on to the coach and to Oakley Hall for a quick change before dinner. Making our way back downstairs we enjoyed a drinks reception with the other guests before heading into the dining room for our evening meal.

The menu really impressive, seared trout, venison and tarte tatin, all accompanied with the perfect wine pairings.

A quick nightcap and it was off to bed to relax and make use of the huge comfy bed.
After a refreshing night’s sleep, we headed down for breakfast before making our way back to our room to pack and checkout.

A big thank you to Oakley Hall Hotel, Hotel Republic & Bombay Sapphire Distillery for hosting us. We can’t wait to get planning events with you all very soon.
