Arawa B&B
Ranked #2 of 2 Oxted B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 7, 2011

This house is not a B&B - too small. We booked this place as we were attending a wedding nearby. However, we left pretty swiftly after arriving. The house was dusty and old fashioned. The room was pokey, dusty and was just generally dingy. The towels in the bathroom look like the one that one keeps in the garage in case of any flooding! The bed looked old and lumpy and in light of what els we had seen; could well have been not washed since the previous guest. Who knows. Just terrible.

The b&b was perfectly adequate, clean, though our room was not ensuite. The host was reasonably friendly. However, £40 per person was at least £20 too much for the standard of accommodation - for £80 I would expect somewhere larger (and with ensuite facilities). The cooked breakfast was fair, but not remarkable. Having seen various hotels and b&bs on 'The Hotel Inspector' recently, I do not think this place would get its tariff approved as value for money.

To find an accommodation spontaneously is hard to do. We were lucky to find such a B&B. David is friendly, served us really well (the breakfast - really tasty, and very british), and we never felt annoyed. He gave us tips for visiting London (Visit the science museum!! There is a 3D cinema, very cool)
The location is calm, there is a train station close to the B&B. The bedrooms are not soo small, and there is a television and internet you can use.
We came by car, so we were flexible. But you should never drive into the city, you have to pay for it and to find a parking lot is impossible to do.
London is great, there are a lot of places to visit, we didn't do one of the sightseeing tours (expensive for students).
All in all, we enjoyed our stay here in London.

My collegue and I stayed with David at Arawa for four consequetive weeks, from beginning to end we felt very welcome and comfortable. David always made sure we were comfortable and went out of his way to ensure this. Which was very much appreciated.

David also manages to get the balance of host perfect, not around too much to bother you but around enough if you need him. Hosts that can be around too much can annoy me.

The breakfast is one of the best I have had, very filling and very tasty!

All in all a nice play to stay, thanks David.

I had walked 31km from London and arrived tired. I was greeted by the offer of a proper percolator brewed coffee, It was bliss. The size of the room was adequate , but comfortable with a TV and like the bathroom very clean. I had eaten earlier in the day and just wanted to sleep, but was told there was a Weatherspoon nearby if I wanted an evening meal. The location in a quiet neat street was easy to find. The generous breakfast set me up for a further 35 km walk the next day.

We stayed here during a walk on the North Downs Way. This is a very small B&B with 1 family room (1 double + 1 bunk) and 1 twin room. The 6 adults in our group booked the place out.

The rooms are quite small and basic but perfectly suitable for a short stay. The B&B is less than 10 minutes walk to central Oxted. The breakfast was good, filling and fresh, although instead of serving 6 breakfasts to 6 people they put the individual items in the centre of the table so we could serve ourselves. Although some people might prefer this, I personally just found it annoying.

In summary, this is a good place to stay at a reasonable cost if you want basic B&B accommodation in the Oxted area.
