As a family we arrived from Cape Town en masse for an initial two week stay. I had done a lot of research into accommodation prior to our return and wanted us to be as comfortable as possible while we acclimatised and found a home. I couldn't have wished for a better experience. It was a pleasure to deal with... More

Charming B&B in a central location. The property overlooks an open green area and has view further over the Mole valley. Accommodation was wonderful, hosts were very willing to help us get the maximum from our stay. We had the "family room" which was wonderfully appointed and had its own kitchen facilities. The location gives easy access to the high... More

The most charming hosts - nothing is too much trouble even making some drawers when asked! Delicious breakfast and lovely "extras" in the Dining Room for "nibbling"! I cannot rate this highly enough. Especially the Teddy Bears in all the rooms - great touch. Thank you and I come from Cornwall - The Land of B &Bs!

We stayed two nights at The Walton's. Having previously lived in Dorking we didn't know this area existed. The house is in a beautiful setting with picturesque views of the countryside and gardens. Great location close to the centre of town. We chose this B&B having read the reviews and also didn't really want to stay in a hotel. The... More

We are extremely confident Vicky will look after our guests in our absence, she is part of the extended Walton family and a true treasure. I'm so glad you enjoyed staying in Rose Hill... More

When I first wrote a review I was hesitant to say all the nice things I could as rooms do book quickly. I spend a lot of time in Dorking and this is my third year of stay at The Waltons; and my second year for very extended stays. My only "complaint" is that we don't see enough of the... More

I stayed at the Waltons for one night in November, only giving a days notice. Maggie Walton could not have been more helpful, despite having her hands full with a sick grandchild. The house was beautiful, the room large, well furnished and very clean. A very welcoming choice of cakes, fruit etc. in the dining room, made it feel like... More

We loved this house during our spontaneous visit of England. If you want you can have a typical englich breakfast or a generously Continental breakfast ( with perfect soft boiled eggs from the garden and self-made marmelades).

We were thrilled the room was available for your family at such short notice and that you managed to get into London and enjoy the city, then escape back to the tranquil setting of Dorking.

We loved The Waltons’ house. It was a dark winter evening, when my wife and I arrived. But as we stepped inside, it was warm and light, the walls were full of pictures I wanted to look at, a dog was wagging its tail and a friendly cat was lying stubbornly in the middle of the corridor. Upstairs, we were... More

Stayed here for one night as we were attending a party nearby. What a beautiful building and location. We were welcomed by the dog, cat and John who showed us to our basement apartment (although we had only booked a double room) pointing out the breakfast room (and home made cakes en route).
