Overview

This "beautiful" property with "lovingly maintained gardens and woodland" (The AA) dates from 1905 and was originally built by the grandson of travel agent Thomas Cook. Think grandfather clocks, wood panelling and dining within view of fountains and lily-pad-dotted ponds.

The 2-AA-Rosette Oak Room Restaurant serves an à la carte dinner menu of traditional British dishes. Afternoon tea is served in the lounge, in The Oak Room Restaurant or al fresco on the terrace in the summer months, and there is a bar for tipples and light bites.

Guildford town centre offers plenty to do all year round. You can visit galleries and museums, or explore the medieval castle and Tudor Guildhall building. These sights are all in the town centre, around 10 minutes' drive from the hotel. Loseley Park and Gardens -- a 16th-century country pile with landscaped gardens -- is less than 15 minutes' drive away, as is the National Trust's Winkworth Arboretum and tea rooms.

If you drive 20 minutes, you can explore National Trust property Hatchlands Park. It's set in 400 acres of rolling parkland and is home to Europe's largest collection of keyboard instruments -- many of which have ties with famous composers such as Bach, Chopin and Elgar.

Food was very good but the Restaurant and the Bar were a little soleless and lacking in atmosphere. Probably needs different music especially in Bar

The receptionist who showed us to our room was lovely and chatty. The shower was lovely and hot and the room was clean
Other Comments
The room ripped net curtain and bulb needed replacing above sink in shower room. Poached egg for breakfast poached with so muck vinegar it tasted pickled. Then the breakfast waiter had to go in search of an earl get tea bag just a bit disappointing for a four star hotel. They need to look at lighting in restaurant we saw a couple of people using their mobile phones as a torch to read the menu!

The feeling of being a house guest at a luxurious country house. All the staff were lovely and extremely attentive. The building and grounds are beautiful.

The room we were finally given was excellent, although when we arrived we had been allocated a double room, despite the fact that I had previously arranged with the hotel that my sister and I required a twin room. We were then shown to a twin room which was adequate although not as I had expected from the website. I later found that the curtains were wet, with old water stains and black mould. When we told the staff they immediately made other arrangements for us and we were given a beautiful,large, luxurious twin room. They explained that not all the rooms have yet been updated.
