The Devils Punchbowl
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Hindhead
Reviewed 25 June 2007

We were booked into this hotel by friends who had stayed there before when visiting their daughter and family who live locally. We knew from the fact that they had stayed there that it could not be as bad as Phill made it out to be. Whilst some of his/her comments are valid would be visitors should not be put off by them.Agreed there were traces of mould in the shower area of the bath but nothing major and there are areas which could do with a lick of paint to spruce them up but the beds were clean and the sheets bright and crisply ironed.
With regard to Phill's comments re breakfast I believe that they were completely wrong and maybe a result of,at that point,just finding fault with anything. The full breakfast was just that and well cooked and well presented.
Certainly there are better hotels and there are a lot worse and at £49.50 per room per night you should not expect The Ritz !

Stayed: June 2007

What a disappointment. After booking for three nights we ended up checking out after the first night. The room was small, the decor shabby, but above all it was dirty. There was black mould around the shower fittings which rubbed off easily with a wet finger ( how long since it had seen a cleaner's cloth? ). The wallpaper in the room was drab and water stained / dirty in general. There was even a bit of blood around the light switch - lovely!
Dinner would have been very nice - the food was delicious. However, the tabletop was "gritty" and the cutlery was in a container on the table which was itself placed in a well used ( but empty ) ashtray. What were they thinking?
Breakfast was a bowl of cereal and a cup of old coffee. We passed on the "full english" after seeing the crusty offering in the servery. The toast was OK, but I had to fetch it myself after the waitress put it in the toaster and then forgot all about it.
In all, a perfect example of third-rate accommodation trying to pass itself off as a quality hotel. We checked out and went to the Wheatsheaf near Haslemere instead, which was very nice indeed.
