For our first FAM (Familiarisation) trip of 2023 we headed to the stunning De Vere Beaumont Hotel in Windsor. Joined by four of our lovely clients, we were really excited to see this hotel and in particular, the vast range of meeting and event spaces. Our MLC Connects FAM trips are not only a great way for us to experience a hotel’s facilities, allowing us to add them to our venue portfolio, its also a great opportunity for our clients to experience this with us. Connecting event professionals with the best London and UK venues is our passion.

The hotel

Located just minutes from J13 of the M25, 15 mins from Heathrow with train links to London, De Vere Beaumont Estate has 58 event spaces and meeting rooms for conferences, meetings and training, with 40 acres of grounds for team building.

The trip got off to a great start

We arrived on a Friday afternoon after a very straight forward train journey to Egham where we were met by a private car to take us to the property. Arriving on a Friday meant our guests were able to switch off from work responsibilities and enjoy a more relaxed stay. We checked in to our stunning hotel suites in the White House section of the property before meeting our wonderful host for welcome drinks.

Impressive events spaces

After a few glasses of bubbly, we were ready for a tour of the property and were blown away with the number of stunning spaces.
The modern Hanover Suite, which has just finished an extensive renovation, offers a versatile space for larger conferences for up to 700 guests. Located in the main house, the suite has state-of-the-art technology and AV as well as it’s own lounge area, that is also currently undergoing a refurbishment.

The Conference Village stands at the side of the main house and offers four suites including the Balmoral for up to 180 people. Over in the White House, The Remenham, The Roxburghe and The Barramundi are popular with event bookers looking for smaller meeting rooms with their art-deco style and luxury finishes.

Back in the original house, the Buckingham & Wessex suites offer a range of meeting rooms and are located close to The Chapel, the grandest of the spaces at the estate. Having recently completed a luxury refurbishment, the Chapel was built in the 19th-century, the painted, vaulted ceilings and stained glass windows create a unique setting.
Enhanced with 21st-century features, each space also offers intuitive, smart technology, superfast Wi-Fi with a maximum bandwidth of 1Gb up to 100 m from the hotel, nutritious food for well-being and a dedicated conference host.

A luxurious evening

After our tour, we made our way back to our hotels rooms to freshen up, before making our way to the 1705 restaurant and bar to enjoy dinner with our hosts. The food, company and wine were divine.

Following dinner we headed to the bar for a night cap before retiring to our rooms for a restful nights sleep.

After a leisurely breakfast the next morning we made our way back to the train station feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.


We loved our FAM trip at De Vere Beaumont, we are still talking about it. The event opportunities (whether business or leisure) are endless, and we can’t wait to return soon.
