The White Horse is located in the middle of Dorking on the main street. It's in a very good location if you don't have a car since you can walk to many pubs, restaurants and shops nearby.
I stayed 4 nights in room 115 while working in Dorking. The staff were very helpful and friendly. They let me check-in early after an overnight flight from the US. I was in room 115 in one of the buildings at the rear of the hotel. It had 2 windows overlooking the rear driveway, a queen size bed, 2 comfortable chairs around a table, a desk with another chair, an armoire containing a TV, refrigerator and tea maker, a trouser press and a good sized closet. The bathroom was large enough for one person and was well appointed and lit. The tub/shower had good water pressure and plentiful hot water after a wait of about 30 seconds. The heat was off during the day and when I asked about it I was told that it was on a timer and would come on at night. The next night the heat was on and overwhelming. It must have been 90 degrees Fahrenheit in the room. I opened the 2 windows and turned off the heat via the valve on the radiator and got to sleep a couple hours later. After that the heat was fine the remaining nights. I ate breakfast each day in the hotel. They offered a buffet with hot and cold choices. The eggs were a bit rubbery but tasted OK. Everything was else was fine. The WiFi Internet access worked well in the hotel lounge, but I could not get a usable signal in my room.
