Development Works Completed

2nd May 2019

In May 2019 Paton Developments completed a refurbishment and new build project at Gorse Hill Hotel in Woking Surrey.

Paton Developments were appointed to refurbish and refresh the beautiful mansion hotel, designed by the architect Edward Warren, who was best known for designing Churches and parts of Oxford College.

The master plan for bringing the property back to its former glory included, renovation and refurbishment of the reception, bar, restaurants, customer lounge, gym, bedrooms and corridors.

Following the renovation and refurbishment Paton Developments embarked on a ground up construction of a new build 11,000sqft conference and function facility.

Along with the new build work, they also developed and built a new road infrastructure and landscaped the surrounding grounds.

The design and build of the contract was completed within a record breaking 12-months and the new build construction sympathetically reflected the classic existing Georgian Period Mansion House building.

Gorse Goes Fast

5th November 2018

When Active Hospitality acquired Gorse Hill in January 2017 there was only a 10MB line serving the whole venue and we’re not sure how it functioned.

We immediately upgraded this to a 100MB line to ensure conferencing clients could conduct events without having drop outs in the line and our leisure guests can stream and browse the web with no buffering.

With continued improvements to the venue we are delighted to announce that we have a full 1Gb line now active (1000MB).  With more and more people using Streaming Services such as Netflix and Amazon Prime, we are now able to deliver a service that blows all our local competitors out the water and provides our guests with a service that they should expect as the world develops.

We can also create dedicated bandwidth for corporate clients looking to have a super fast connection for their event and not be effected by other guests on site.
