Visiting my sister between Christmas and New Year Barnett Hill seemed like the perfect place to stay. A beautiful Queen Anne style country house in stunning, but out of the way grounds (take your sat nav to find the hotel). There are beautiful features such as originally plasterwork in the long gallery and staircase area and wooden panelling. The hotel is situated close to Guildford, and has full event (conference/wedding) facilities.
Our room was in the garden annex, not in the main house itself and was warm, clean and everything we could have wanted. There was a great shower, comfortable bed and great welcome tray, iPod/iPhone docking station and unlimited free wifi in the room. The decor was country with plenty of storage and work space.
The breakfast, which is included in the price, was brilliant. There was an excellent array of choices from really good fresh fruit salad (made fresh every day) to cereals to hot buffet and items such as fish which can be cooked to order off the menu. The staff were friendly and attentive, and will plate a breakfast up for you if required.
My hotel booking was only for one night originally but having been very impressed I spoke to the receptionist who quickly and efficiently arranged for a second nights stay. The second night was as good as the first, with another excellent breakfast the second day.
All in all one of my best stays this year, excellent room, staff and food. What more could you want? I wil now use this as my hotel of choice when in the area with work or visiting family as he value for money was excellent.
