Lincoln Arms
Ranked #12 of 12 Dorking B&B and Inns
Reviewed 14 August 2011

The decor throughtout the place was grubby, orange from nicotine, when smoking was allowed in pubs. The bed pushed up against the wall, clean bedding, but not ironed. Shower over the bath, no shower curtain. The shower just "Spat" out water, hardly enough to get wet. Luckily enough there was enough pubic hairs in the bath to knit a bathmat......
Breakfast was in the bar. Help your self to cereal, and the man behind the bar made toast. No English breakfast as no staff to cook it!!!
Cheap, at £55 for a double room, no where else to stay in the area, or we would not have stayed!!!! We definately won't be back. A carboard box in Dorking high Street had more class!!!!

Reviewed 10 June 2011

We needed somewhere basic to stay overnight, but this really was basic. The bed held together but it won't be long before the screws drilled into one joint to hold one corner of the bed fail and the bed collapses. The bedding has seen lots of use- no crisp linen there. Loads of cigarette butts lay outside the window on a flat roof- why have guests (or staff) been smoking in the room where this is not permitted? The bathroom was OK but the tile grout was stained and the sink had only been partially cleaned- where the soap would sit was very dirty. Breakfast was a very basic 'continental'- fruit juice, tea/coffee, toast, cereal. The glasses were sat on a grubby bar surface, with the 'drinking' end directly on the surface. Windows and other surfaces were grubby. There was a feeling that there is no rigour about the places- standards don't seem to matter. It is true that staff were polite and allow customers to change/leave their bags prior to the room being cleaned if you arrive early, but this cannot compensate for the lack of attention to detail.
