    Nice old-fashioned hotel

    Basically fine, nice old hotel on the road, with a few details that need attention. Perfectly satisfactory.

    Wouldn't stay again !

    Arrived at about 20:40 in the evening. Parked up, in a free space went inside. Was met by a very efficient receptionist male. Informed that I had been upgraded, not sure why, but then told I couldn't park in the car park as there were no spaces, and that I should have rung ahead to reserve a car park space ( news to me !) Anyway, me being me I said no problem, ill dump my bags and park in the street outside ( the high street with limited parking ) I asked about food and was told that the restaurant was open, no mention of times. Dumped bags, moved car which I had to go around the one way system twive to find a space eventually got one right outside ! fantastic I thought. Walked from the street straight into the restaurant informed the surprised waitress that I was a guest at 20;58, told that restaurant closed at nine ( well last orders), Waitress told me she would have to check with the chef, luckily he allowed me to eat ! As I was finishing my meal at about 2145 , the tables were being made up for breakfast ( a little nudge to hurry me up) and the bar man and waitress were discussing the latest stabbing in Dorking .. The waitress was polite, I asked for a side salad, i got a bowl of the same leaves but nothing else. Breakfast and staff were excellent however ... but the experience the night

    Very modern room for the price

    A very pleasant experience. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful during my stay. The room was very modern and extremely comfortable as well. A couple of down sides the room was a bit to warm for me and the noise of the cars from the high street although it didnt stop me from sleeping

    Great place to stay

    We stayed for one night in order to do some walking in the local area. A great base for the walks. Very friendly staff and we enjoyed the food (dinner and breakfast) very much.

    Two night stay disappointing

    Bedroom small but well equipped and clean. Continental breakfast very poor. Obviously short staffed and therefore slow. Dinner menu not very inspiring.

    Lovely hotel - great location and fab staff

    We checked out early from the Burford Bridge Hotel as it was SO bad. At short notice we managed to get into the White Horse. Fab hotel - they upgraded us to another room because we had our two dogs with us. Florie on reception even took one of our dogs upstairs to the room for us. All of the other staff were very friendly and helpful. We also got a free bottle of wine as part of our membership - nice touch. Parking was paid for - but fair enough as it’s a town centre location. Also well organised with names on cones to aid with allocated spaces etc. Only slight issue we had was with an unpleasant elderly couple who thought we’d pinched their space - when it was the hotel staff that had given them a larger space and closer to the reception area. Some people! Interior of hotel is boutique-ish - nice place to be and just chill out. But it’s an old building - so a healthy balance of the old and the new. We were in room 37 - spacious, very comfortable bed, separate little lounge area and lovely bathroom. We’d definitely go back - big thumbs up from us and our dogs!

    top hotel, sensible price

    Excellent hotel, great value for area and standard, arrived late so did not have evening meal but breakfast was outstanding. secure barrier parking on site is £10 which makes sense to book in advance, though if you are gone early there is some limited on street parking
