Lovely grounds

Posted 11-Aug-2015
The hotel was bathed in sunshine when we arrived which gave it a lovely feel, we had been out all day at a local attraction and was glad if the warm welcome. The food was really nice and the staff were happy to talk to us about general topics. The decor in places was beginning to show age and use but over all a good place to stay

Pleasant and Peaceful

Posted 20-Jul-2015
Pros: Luxurious traditional look.
Cons: Some of the staff could do with some customer service training. It was the only thing that let the hotel down.
Location: I was there to see a concert at the Epsom Downs racecourse.
Quiet location with nice views. Room was comfortable, tea tray had ceramic teapot and was well presented. Bed was comfortable. Unfortunately the lift and steam room were out of order, but these things happen.

2nd floor room

Posted 18-Jul-2015
My mum was given a room on 2nd floor even though she has heart problems and I asked for a 1st floor room. It would have been fine if the lift was working but this hadn't been working since the last review on here! Food was lovely though and breakfast staff were lovely.

Lovely character hotel

Posted 15-Jul-2015
Always love coming to the area, and this hotel and the surroundings does not disappoint. The staff were friendly and helpful, the room was modern and comfortable, and the breakfast was plentiful and excellent value. My only complaint is that the rooms need some air conditioning during the summer months. Even with both windows open through the night and the ceiling fan on I was sweltering!!

Nice hotel will use again

Posted 29-Jun-2015
Pros: Nice hotel, good sized rooms. Beautiful older building. Room well thought out and space used well. Lots of facilities Clean and tidy. Staff very help
Cons: Needs sprucing up. Carpet threadbare in places and wallpaper in corridors on second floor needs replacing as bits missing
Location: Located out of the way very peaceful.
I stayed there on business as working in Croydon. Got a good rate from Expedia. My room was upgraded, so nice view over the gold course. Breakfast was not available as it started at 8.00 am and I had to be a work by then, however staff made me a coffee. Staff were very helpful. Bed good size and comfortable, but a little soft for my back.

The good the bad and the ugly

Posted 01-Jun-2015
After seeing some of the photos online of the rooms. Thought it would be okay upon arrival checked in and went into a room (not with a golf view) as selected. It was dated very dated holes on carpet and wallpaper hanging off in the hall ways the place is dreadful. We were there with a group of about 8. One of us had the suite which I will say is lovely and wouldn't believe its in the same hotel but room I received was shocking. That a side we had dinner which was very nice, and served by Amanda who was excellent! Couldn't fault her service and made sure everything was OK. Go to sleep that night and the pillows are like paper thin so go to waldrobe to find one spare pillow. Play rock paper siccors with the misses she wins. I thought I'd ring through to reception to get another they tell us there is none and they'll try and sort something out. 20 minutes later door knocks open to what can only be describedasa massive cushion stuffed in a pillow case hardly what we expected. Overall its just a poor hotel and in some serious need of updating and for the price would rather stay in a travel lodge.

Excellent food for room service, comfortable room, only let down was the gym not opening earlier and the attendant not opening the doors on time at 7am!

We thought that some of the previous reviews were unfair to the hotel. We were not wanting the impersonal modernity of newer hotels and found the hotel comfortable and to our taste. Staff were welcoming and helpful.

Despite not complaining about being given a twin instead of a double room (we were too tired to care!), in the morning when checking out we were informed that our breakfast was complimentary to make up for it
