Stayed here with my 2 friends and the hotel very kindly arranged fro the sofa to be turned into a sofa bed. It was my birthday so we treated the hotel as a base to get ready and go. Reception very helpful, ordered a taxi for us. Breakfast great, facilities great. Would definitely stay again!

Stayed for one night for business and arrived late after 2200. The room was the standard type of double room and more than adequate. Breakfast was good and provided a large choice. Check-in/Check-out easy and although location if arriving by train required a £10 taxi each way, location for main roads far more convenient. Would probably stay more central if... More

Stayed here last night on a trip to Guildford. It was lovely. Nice and clean, good breakfast, showers were nice and hot. Can't complain about anything really. No reason I wouldn't go back there again.

We stayed there at the end of October. We were visiting Surrey university with our son. The hotel is nice, clean, modern, spacious and very confortable. Location is very convenient for university visits. Close to university sports centre. Not far from the city centre. We definitely will visit it again.

Plenty of parking, good choice of food dishes & snacks in restaurant or lounge bar. Be aware there are TV's playing in bar area but with little or no volume. Added advantage is they accept Tastecard with 50% off food for up to 6 people Mob-Fri if you book ahead. Staff friendly but a bit scarce on occasion. Food nicely... More
