Overall a pleasant stay, plus points include nice decor in the room and restaurant, nice large shower and comfy bedding. The staff were also friendly, and it was handy to have parking right outside the inn.
However, the lighting in the room was not good for women, the shadows from the lighting meant putting make up on was very difficult, and we resorted to using small vanity mirrors propped up against the window. Our room happened to over-look the area where all the Biffa bins are kept for the inn, which didn't create a very nice view, but was also a pain when they were emptying bottles into the bins at midnight when you are trying to sleep. The windows are not double glazed.
Breakfast was fine, but the continental options were very limited with few cereals.
Overall, I would use this inn again, but I would specifically request not to be put in a room over-looking the bins again.

Goldalming is something of a Surrey jewel, with its cottages nestled against a backdrop of beautiful wooded hills by the River Wey. A few miles up the road is Guildford, where you can explore the cathedral and its 20 acres of parkland, or stroll around the gardens of the old castle. The National Trust's Clandon Park mansion and 18th century Hatchlands Park are well worth a visit too. ... more less
