            Peaceful relaxing setting/location! Professional, knowledgeable, friendly, helpful staff. Wonderful room overlooking the golf course. Room was "as advertised", comfortable, clean, and quite lovely. Balcony was private - (not viewable from below or either side). In all, our stay was flawless. Wish I had something bad to say, to balance out the raves, but I don't. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone looking for: a value hotel a little bit "off the beaten track" yet close to Gatwick/Crawley.

            This is not repeat not a complaint about the hotel (they can't do anything about this) but be aware that the area is a cellphone "dead zone". Reception is spotty at best, and "Service Unavailable" was a common sight on both our cellphones.

            On arriving and leaving the Reception Staff were very efficient and polite. The evening meal was well presented and the steak was lovely. All of the staff that we met were very keen to impress. Breakfast was freshly prepared.

            The Hotel has fallen into a state of disrepair. It needs money spending on decor. House keeping lets you down. The white piano in the reception that is battered!! please ditch it. Polish the beautiful chandelier and bring some sparkle back into the Hotel the surroundings are beautiful.

            Whilst the internal decoration of the Hotel is a little worn the whole feeling of it is strangely reassuring and I had the best two nights sleep I have had for many a month

          • Group of friends
            7.4

            Well located as we were working up the road, we chose not to have breakfast this time as it was very disapointing last time we stayed. Room was comfortable and clean.

          • Older travelers

            the hotel is so old and tired it needs a ull refurb sorry but it was frankly very poor and very sad

            it needs pulling down and starting again

          • Older travelers
            9.2

            My husband and I used this as an overnight stay prior to visiting Hever Castle. We considered it excellent value for money, and were particulary impressed with the staff, who went out of their way to be friendly and helpful.

            View from window, quiet, good pool

            Handle on bathroom door needs WD40

            Convenience as visiting family nearby

            Bedroom carpets threadbare,need replacing,hotel probably needs makeover

          • Single
            3.2

            The reason of my choice of this hotel is "spa & relax" having sauna facility but it has been out of order and not in use for a long time, After long flight I had looked foreword to use it but resulted in vain.To my regret I canceled my boking on other day

            No effort was felt about reparing the facilities. This hotel is not in category of relax hotel.

            The location

            The accommodation looks tired and in need of decoration - wallpaper was peeling in one area. Breakfast was poor, hot water jugs for tea and coffee so that it stewed and wasn't that hot. Rooms were serviced whilst at breakfast, therefore not hoovered or even dusted. Shampoo etc wasn't replaced.

          • Group of friends
            5.8

            The hotel was very tired. In need of decoration We were upgraded to room 315 and we were expecting something special - but we were dissapointed. The armchairs were in a terrible state, threadbear in places. The stair carpet was full of stains. Each morning the staff disputed that we had paid for breakfast, they were very unfriendly. The breakfast staff had to be asked for coffee, toast and fruit juice.
