Met here with colleagues for a conference day. The staff were smiling and friendly. The facilities were good and the seating was comfortable (we sat a lot!). The table lay out was circular (what we wanted) and the tables did not wobble. The ladies bathroom was clean and in good condition. We had a useful day.

Great food, lovely welcome, nice breakfast. Could do with some modernisation. It very cost effective for a clean and comfy bed for the night. I'd personally not stay more than 2 night here, but I tend to prefer 4 or 5 star hotels.

On initial booking-in, the staff member on reception was not a happy bunny, for some reason or another!! Another staff member behind the bar was extremely frosty and unwelcoming. What's with the non-eye contact at the Elstead??!! We only stayed one night and decided to eat elsewhere in the evening due to our "experience" on arrival. You lost out to... More

This hotel is a budget hotel without the low cost price tag. We stayed here for tow nights at the price of £280. Was disapointed. Staff were quite frankly odd. The room and whole hotel was dated. The leisure area was so cold the pool and jaquzzi absolutey freezing. Had to get in the suana to heat up. We had... More

Dear Nicol. I am sorry that you found our staff "odd"! I am a bit confused and frankly bewildered because, as you will see from other reviews guests, we have had great reviews about our staff. The pool and whirlpool is maintained at a temperature of thirty degrees which is slightly higher than most hotel pools. Any higher would be... More

I've stayed in quite a few hotels in the area and the Elstead is best for quality and service and yet competitive rates. The only problems we had was with the bathrooms and as soon as we mentioned it, the manager Tony, quickly sorted things out. Rooms- clean, well decorated and spacious. Food (dinner and breakfast) very good, service excellent.... More

A traditional English hotel which to be fair may need a bit of tender love and attention in a few places but which busy hotels don't? Our room was large and comfy with TV and tea and coffee making facilities with a lovely en suite with piping hot water. Only downside there was the restriction on the bath / shower... More

It's central, clean, welcoming, friendly and, even compared to so-called budget hotels, cheap. The restaurant food is good - and good value - and there's something decent to drink even at the northern reaches of the wine list. The food from the bar is perhaps less good judging by my two visits, even though it comes from the same kitchen.... More
