“Excellent weekend”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

Been here twice for romantic weekends away, and it feels a lot more expensive than it is. The grounds are beautiful to stroll in - lots of nooks and crannies to explore, a croquet set available to mess around with for free - very relaxing. The pool was clean and quiet, the staff were helpful, and the room was big and comfortable. We didn't try the food on site, but the staff recommended a very good restaurant round the corner on the quiet country High Street. I'd definitely go back again for a cheap evening treat away.

Horsley Park is different. It is slightly run down (chipped toilet, spotted carpets) and the walls are badly isolated. It is fussy about check-out times and hard to find (look for a badly restored Norman church) However, it has a nice atmosphere, a green environment, good staff, ample parking place, the feel of a much more expensive conference venue and free wifi. If you think hotels are for sleeping, not for wallowing in luxury, you'll find the price quite attractive.

Dear Vijgeblad
Thank you for your recent review of Horsley Park and overall positive comments. I'm sure our local vicar would dispute your 'badly restored Norman church' comment but let's chalk that one down to entente cordiale!

Stayed here for work in June just for one night. The room was a reasonable size and very homely. The pillows were perfectly firm, shame I had to get out of bed so early could of slept in peacefully for the afternoon. The food that was being served was really nice, with pleasant serving staff. The only problem was the was to the rooms was very complicated and I have to admit I did get lost a couple of times but it was lovely to walk around the grounds. Hopefully we will stay there again with work and if so I hope I can make time to use the pool and gym. All in all a very nice stay.

Dear MissKjBrown
Thank you for a great review of Horsley Park - I'm afraid the place is fairly expansive but makes getting lost a bit more interesting - I hope you soon found your way. Now that you are an expert you must visit again.

My wife and I arrived last Sunday for a one night stay. It soon became obvious that the new part of the Hotel we had booked into was extremely busy, furthermore this must have been the case as the room adjoining ours appeared to have numerous people arguing with each other at the top of their voices. I reported this issue to the reception manager, who was exceedingly helpful and offered us a room in the towers, the original victorian part of the estate. This was a bizarre experience, as we were given an amazing sized room with a spectacular dual aspect. The down side was the decor, which was shabby at best, with a tatty bathroom, but very clean with a comfortable bed and very quiet. As we paid a last minute low and very reasonable price I was happy to compromise and felt the views and history outweighed any problems. The breakfast is served in the new building and we thought the quality very good with the opportunity to return to the counter to replenish your plate.
To conclude we felt we were treated fairly and the staff deserve a mention as they 'went the extra mile', if we return to the area we will stay at the hotel again, but only in the Towers.

Room Tip: For views and history ask for the Towers but be ready to compromise on up to date decor.

Dear keith m
Thank you for your recent review.
I would have to agree that whilst there are lots of positive reasons to book the Towers, the bedrooms are dated when compared to the contemporary style of the management centre or court areas. Delighted to hear that the team went the 'extra mile' for you - that is a big part of our service culture within De Vere Venues.
Kind Regards,

I did get to stay in the old building, the room was very large, and had great views. One of the views however was through cracked glass...
The bathroom was very large, but dated and suffering from limescale in the bath and some chipped enamel. The bed was comfortable for me, and I slept all night.
The restaurant was good food for an OK price, staff were great. The breakfast was a buffet, so there was plenty to eat - I was up early so there were no queues, and it was a peaceful stay.

This was a bit confusing. Horsley Towers is a Bavarian folly - we arrived to see the red carpet laid out for the wedding on Saturday - but our room was in the more modern Management Centre. Still, both are set in nice grounds far from the madding crowds. The instructions at the gate were a bit off, so we were directed back from one reception to the other. The room was comfortable, though the bed was creaky. The swimming pool was a good size, though the changing rooms were cramped. The gym was adequate for a weekend away. We stayed on Saturday and Sunday nights, leaving on the Bank Holiday Monday morning - later check out at 11am was appreciated. Guildford, Leatherhead and Dorking (Box Hill) are all easily visited but the best was Brooklands.

Room Tip: Try asking for a room that looks away from the car park

Stayed here Sunday night. Set in large grounds, the attractive old park building is set apart from the main hotel rooms. Our room was rather cramped but adequate enough with a very comfy bed and was very clean. All staff were welcoming. After a day touring Wisley we opted for a meal at the hotel. Some prices had increased from those advertised on their website and also the 2 course option was no longer available and neither was the traditional sunday roast on offer. Selection from restaurant was 3 course with starters and desserts being self service, the main meal served by the chef. Selection from starter and dessert were good, but main course - don't bother. Choice of main course on buffet menu was very limited, just bacon steak, or red mullet. My husband chose bacon steak, I opted for red mullet, which was one very small fillet, luke warm and no sauce but came with bean sprouts and a few other stir fry selected veg, other veg were cauliflower, french beans (virtually raw) and roasted potatoes, nothing had any flavour. General choice from restaurant was very poor and vegetarian option was a tart which consisted of egg, small piece of potato, small piece of onion. I am not a chef, but I do not serve food like this! We did mention to waitresses and receptionist about menu being different and quality of food and they were apologetic. However, breakfast was excellent.

Room Tip: Ours was standard room on ground floor but rather on the small side.
