Stayed here previously and the standard remains good. Staff are friendly, the waiting staff especially so. A few points:- (1) Bed v comfortable but pillows were a bit sub-standard on this occasion. (2) Window opened & closed awkwardly (have written to the Management separately). (3) Shower produced little more than a trickle. These are things than can easily be fixed... More

I paid just £35 for a one night stay, including a full breakfast, and got upgraded to a double room on arrival. Staff were very pleasant especially the woman at reception and the young lad behind the bar. Wi-Fi was free and worked all over the hotel, good working area in the large bar. Overall, a pleasant surprise.

We have just come back from a two night stay at Elstead Hotel. We were very impressed from the outset - we had dinner in the hotel on our first night and it was very good indeed - silver service with very efficient waiters. We then went into the hotel bar which had music and was very comfortable. The breakfast... More
