Danish pastries are provided in the mornings and cakes in the afternoon. Apples, water and biscuits are also available at all times. Delegates are welcome to help themselves from the coffee stations throughout the day as part of the delegate packages.
Conference lunches at The Lensbury are much appreciated by delegates and for some are a major factor in their decision making process. There is always a tempting selection of hot and cold dishes on the buffet as well as soup, salads, desserts and cheese. There is something for everyone and special diets can be catered for too. If your delegates would prefer a working lunch, The Lensbury has a range of trolley lunches to choose from. Simple sandwiches and fruit to more elaborate fare is all available as required.

Residential rates at The Lensbury always include full English breakfast and use of the leisure facilities. Accommodation is based in two buildings - The main Clubhouse and the Ascot Building. The Clubhouse offers accommodation over three floors and the bedrooms stock comprises a mixture of room types from standard single rooms to executive and deluxe rooms. The single rooms are very comfortable for the business traveller with a wider than average single bed and en-suite shower room.  Double rooms have a standard size double bed and are slightly larger than the single rooms. Superior rooms have air conditioning, a king sized bed and many have baths. The executive rooms are the most recent additions and offer a touch of luxury with Nespresso coffee machines, fridges, large walk-in shower cubicles and wide-screen televisions. The Ascot building is located across the car park from the conference centre. It is a separate block of bedrooms offering peace and quiet away from the hustle and bustle of the main hotel. All rooms in the Ascot block are superior rooms and have direct access to the leisure facilities.


Besides holding a meeting at The Lensbury, the facilities make the venue ideal for teambuilding, company away-days and off-sites. The Lensbury’s own water sports team run a range of teambuilding activities with water-based challenges a speciality.  This year the team have purchased two new dragon boats and are delighted to be able to offer this exhilarating activity from The Lensbury grounds on the river Thames. There is also raft building, kayaking and canoeing. For land-lubbers there is the unique Earth Ball. This large, canvas ball can be used to play a variety of games either competitively or just for fun. The Earth Ball was originally developed by a university in America and The Lensbury is the only place in the UK to have adopted it as a teambuilding activity. External teambuilding companies are welcome to run events at The Lensbury for your delegates if required.
