I was working near Redhill for a year and enjoyed using this characterful and homely B&B as my base. Just 5mins walk from Redhill station, but set in a quiet area without traffic or train noise so I always got a good night's sleep. Breakfasts were both varied and plentiful and the addition of Classic FM to breakfast service made for an exceptionally civilised start to the day.
Facilities and transport links are very close. Shops, pubs, restaurants, barber, dry cleaner etc. in Redhill are within walking distance and major transport hubs are easily accessible: Redhill station is 30mins from London Victoria & 10mins from Gatwick Airport. Yet rooms suffer no noise and there is a nice well kept garden I relaxed in on nice days.
It is a wonderful little corner of England; I found it very charming and it will be my first choice should I return to Southeast England.
PS: I spent some time admiring this old Victorian house; many features have been retained and en-suite facilities have been fitted without too much alteration to the rooms. It was evident a lot of work goes into maintaining original windows and other period features.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Brompton is a classic Edwardian house, set on a quiet road on a small hill, that has just been refurbished in keeping with the age. We are situated in the Surrey Hills area of the green belt surrounded by countryside, but still close to London, and only three minutes walk from Redhill railway station. We are very close to the town centre that offers the Belfry shopping center, the famous Harlequin Theatre/Cinema and the Donyngs Recreational Facility (Better). ... more less
