“Excellent all round!”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

We chose the hotel randomly from the web. The outside of the hotel suggested that it might be an old building which had seen better days. Quite wrong! Inside it is spotless, furnished in a contemporary style, warm and comfortable. The bathroom in our room (number 1) was large and well equipped, including a hot towel rail. The breakfast was a quality full English. Parking was fine for the number of guests. Given what you can pay for far less in that part of England, I rate it as excellent value for money. (For good "pub grub", try the Leathern Bottle just down the road.) Highly recommended.

Thanks you for your kind review.
We put a lot of work modernising the interior a few years ago so that everything is modern inside although it was important for us to keep original features from the Victorian part of the building.
We have started to update the outside after a very hard winter and already it is looking better.

This Hotel although small is excellent, the staff are friendly, the rooms are very clean and well presented. I only stayed the night as I used it as a stop of before going to Heathrow to catch a flight. I would certainly stay there again if and when I was in Godalming.
As a six foot something guys I could have done with a larger bed, but that is only a minor problem.

Very good value, lovely breakfast and very friendly service. The rooms was a decent size with nice furnishings had more of a B&B feel which is nice- more home like. I even left an item behind and they kindly posted it back with no cost to me and very efficiently, I was most grateful!

Its not often that you can say you really enjoyed your stay at a new hotel but from the minute I entered I was warmly greeted and felt at home. Check in was quick and easy. The hotel is Spotlessly clean and well laid out. My room was modern, warm and comfortable, the shower was hot and powerfull. Breakfast was well cooked and delicious, breakfast room was spotless. Staff were brilliant and extremely courteous. Will definately stay again when i am in the area.

For £60 with breakfast, this was very good value for money. The bedroom and en-suite were very clean and bright. The people working there were very courteous. The breakfast was good. No complaints whatsoever and would stay again.

Room Tip: I'm sure therooms at the back benefit from being quieter.....no road noise.

I ended up arriving quite late due to a delay at heathrow airport, so they allowed me to check in at 11.15 without fuss despite saying last checkin is 10.30 on the website.
The room was clean, comfy and modern.
Breakfast in the morning was spot on.
I couldnt find anywhere cheaper and there is no need! Godalming Hotel provided everything for a lovely B&B feel with the privacy of a hotel.

We booked this place last september,when we arrived we had the shock of our lives,they insisted on taking the full payment before we saw our room,which was 3 nights at £70.00,which we foolishly paid,we were then taken to "the room" which looked more like a prison cell,we asked for a refund of 2 nights,we were willing to pay the 1st night,but were refused any refund,we were both unwell,my sister with a brain tumour and had just lost her sight and had a 6 hour drive to get there to visit a terminaly ill friend,withthis in mind we were not in a position to fight....
I shudder when i think of this place.

Mr P - I remember you booked a room through an booking agency and had a change of plans and tried to cancel your booking. That is between you and the booking agency and is determined by the conditions you accepted when booking with them.

Your comments are totally unrepresentative and unfair since your real problem was your booking. We try hard to give very good value for money and most reviewers agree that we succeed at this.

I have total sympathy for any family tragedies which we are all susceptible to.

I also wonder why it took you 6 months to send in a review
