Lovely place and Maggie is a lovely host. Only had a one night stopover on a hiking trip and Maggie had no issues with two very tired and dirty hikers showing up! The room was spacious, clean, breakfast was great, and there are lots of little touches, such as homemade cakes, that make you feel very welcome.

Many thanks for your review, most certainly we have no issues welcoming tired and dirty hikers as I am quite often one myself. As I think I mentioned, you must come back and do more walking because the Surrey Hills are famous for beautiful hiking with special views in several directions. It was really kind of you to remember us... More

What an enchanting place The Waltons is.. My family and I had the pleasure of staying there for 3 weeks whilst we were having some building work done. I can't speak highly enough of the comfy beds, the soft plump,pillows, the crisp white linen and the unique homely atmosphere Maggie manages to create. We really felt as though the family... More

I have stayed just twice, in 2007 and 2016 and felt so welcome and so spoiled each time. Maggie is a consummate host and her beautiful breakfast table, groaning with her homemade preserves and baking was simply divine. The room was so comfortable and the view of the garden enchanting.

Please don't leave so long between visits, especially when you write such kind things about us! I can't take all the credit for our enchanting garden as I have a lovely lady called Lisa to help me a few hours each week. She achieves more in 3 hours than I could in 3 days. It would seem my talent lies... More

Very welcoming owner, lovely spacious room with separate bathroom (with large bath!) Offered tea and home baking on arrival. The breakfast was the best of the trip, eaten with various family members and other guests who said they wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else if they were in the area.

Luckily for me the local hotel I usually stay in was full, so a quick search and I stumbled across the Walton's, situated in the 'Mayfair' of Dorking!

This is quite simply the best B&B i've ever stayed in! Gorgeous house, in a gorgeous location. Beautiful rooms, comfy beds with lovely linen. A wonderful hostess, amazing breakfast and afternoon tea!

I would never stay anywhere else when in or near Dorking! This time, I stayed for several weeks in the basement flat, which was cosy, well appointed, and perfectly stocked for a comfortable stay.

We stayed in the double room. We were visiting Dorking as we are thinking of moving to the area. We wanted somewhere that was central so we could get a feel of the town.
