My wife and I stayed for two nights Fri and Sat 16/17th Nov.while visiting our daughter who lives in Godalming. We had not read any reviews so went with an open mind. We knew we had to change rooms for the second night to a family room as our room had been booked. Both rooms were generally very tired. There was mildew in the shower in the first room, room 20 and only one of the four wall lights worked, the carpet had seen better days and was stained. However although very disappointed we were resigned to put up with this, as all we really wanted was a good nights sleep having driven for 5 hours from Cornwall. It was then we began to notice the noise coming from outside. Shouting screaming, generally lots of noise from lots of people, which kept going until 2,00am, there was no question of being able to sleep and by then we were so stressed we were unable to sleep the rest of the night. We had already paid on the internet so moving wasn't possible. When we told the woman who runs the hotel with her husband she was well aware of the problem which apparently comes from two nearby pubs which stay open until 2.00am. She also said that she could not guarantee that the room we were moving to, room 8, directly above room 20 would not have the same problem. Here again only one of the 5 wall lights worked and there were loose floor tiles in the bathroom. There was noise again, but because of the position of the room the volume was much less, and we did get some sleep at last. Although there was lots of noise during the night of some guests running about and knocking on doors. When we arrived down for breakfast the police were there as apparently the noise during the night had led to one of the rooms being thrashed.
The fire info on the back of the doors in both the rooms we stayed in were left blank where information should have been filled in.Generally it feels the hotel is not in great shape, and there are not enough staff to run the place properly. All in all not a great experience.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms 20 and 8, and any other rooms that side of the building,and don't expect perfection. Room 8 has single beds.

Located in the very Heart of godalming it's was very convenient for work,food good and well priced,staff polite and keen,breakfast excellent with a good choice,overall I'd stay again .it would be nice to see some tempting dinner bed an breakfast offers this always appeals to me so I know what the price overall i will be paying.
Small parking area but adjacent too large public car park just a bit tricky to find.

The Royal Hotel is very central,being situated on Godalming High Street. The room was clean with a comfortable bed. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The hotel has a pleasant bar area. I paid £75 for one night in a single room(B and B),booked through Booking.com. The accommodation is quite basic for the price,but probably reflects hotel prices in general in the U.K. When next in the area I will try to find somewhere cheaper,but would certainly recommend this hotel.

we booked a luxury room with a bath , were given room 3 . it only had a shower , i complained and was told that the booking agents had got the description wrong , were given a comp bottle of wine . big deal. there was a boiler in a cupboard in the room . kept us awake from about 6.30 amswitching on and off. The sound proofing to other rooms was awful . this room looks nothing like the photos! most other things about the place are okish

Room Tip: dont pay for a luxury room
