A fine hotel in the grand Victorian style with many retained and restored features sumptuously refurbished last year to a high specification and excellent quality. We enjoyed a very reasonably priced weekend break with excellent dining and facilities. Two sitting rooms, open fires, gardens, terraces, bar, dining room, full sized billiard table, boot room. Also, superb 18 hole golf course with very knowledgeable pro and well stocked golf shop with a good selection of new and used golf clubs for sale. Buggies and powered trolleys available. And leisure centre with pool, spa, sauna, steamroom, gym & all weather tennis courts all inclusive with exercise classes, health and beauty treatments, bar, fully equipped function room open to non- residents.
This was one of my best hotel stays ever, the hotel is surrounded by outstanding scenery adjacent Mole Valley with many attractions in the vicinity. I was wary of the previous reviews about the receptionists but we found all the staff to be very warm and welcoming. Excellent breakfast, afternoon teas, bar snacks, dinners and Sunday lunch carvery on offer at excellent value. Extensive wine list, champagne by the glass & local ales.
