Chart House Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #4 of 12 Dorking B&B and Inns
Reviewed 20 July 2014 via mobile

During june I stayed at the chart house for 3 weeks. For me it was a business trip but the lovely lady(owner of the nice chart house)Jill and her family let me feel home and gave me also the feeling to be in holiday. It was also interesting to meet new people of different culture during breakfast. The service I could enjoy was very satisfied and the room was always clean. There is a very huge and nice garden where you can relax and enjoy the nature outside the city. I had such a good time at chart house and I was lucky to meet such a nice and social family! Take care and see you soon!

Stayed 3 nights as a solo traveller in a twin-room; Landlady Jill very welcoming and excellent host. Room very clean with nice views outside very pretty gardens. Shared bathroom but modern, clean, with nice powerful hot shower. Good free wifi and freeview TV. Off road parking away from busy roads. Located in nice part of Dorking only a short walk into town which has various restaurants, cafes and inns.

I stayed at Chart House for 3 weeks during my business trip in May'14. The place was excellent with its scenic beauty & Jill was the most caring host. It was truly home away from home for me with the personalised service starting from the bottle of 'Mermite' specially kept for my breakfast every morning to the clean & comfortable bed to sleep in the night. You wake up in the morning with the sound of a thousand chirping birds, the fluroscent green vastness of the garden outside your window with blooming flowers. The garden was an excellent place to relax during the weekend with the hens & alpacas for company. I wish I can go back again to Dorking to stay at the peaceful abode called 'Chart House'.

This was a last minute booking made for a couple from Spain by a local trader. They previously stayed in January. I made it clear when the room was booked the price and what was included. When they arrived the elderly man was aggressive and persistently argued for a discount on the agreed price. He and his wife complained that the bathroom was not en-suite but all my prices are clearly displayed on my website and that I have no en-suite facilities. Their room had a private bathroom for their exclusive use next to the room. I explained the room was the only one I had available but they were welcome to look for something cheaper. I found him intimidating and his comments are extremely offensive and totally unjustified - he is just a bully and tried to take advantage to get out of paying the agreed price.

My wife and I together with my wife's sister and cousin had a very pleasant stay. Jill was a marvellous host. The bed's were comfortable. The bathrooms were clean and well fitted out. Off road parking in the fore court. Lovely gardens, and the house is within walking distance of the town. Used this B&B as the centre for our visit to the England, Wales, Scotland, France, Belgium and the Netherlands. Wi-Fi only services the south end of the house, could do with a range extender in the guest lounge.

Room Tip: All rooms ok.

This is a stunning B&B located in a beautiful part of town with a huge garden to enjoy. The double room we had was well appointed and with all the necessaries.

One minor gripe was around the breakfast. Running a B&B is not an easy job, it can take over your life and I can understand that owners sometimes find it hard to balance their life and business. But from a customer perspective, it is not nice to be made to feel like you are inconveniencing your host by requesting the additional cost cooked breakfast (which in my book should be a standard offering anyway). Granted, a plan was made and someone was on hand and able provided the said breakfast, but as a customer I should have been blissfully unaware of this hiccup. But then the lack of quality of the ingredients just made the whole thing a let down. Bacon that is not bacon and sausages that barely contain any meat are just not on for me. Disappointing!

So overall a great place, but I would suggest just sticking with the included continental breakfast.

Thank you for a generally great review but I would like to respond to your comments about the breakfast. Our prices are probably the lowest in the Dorking area and we are able to achieve this by offering continental (very substantial) breakfast included in the price and offering a cooked breakfast at extra charge. The vast majority of our clients are business people who often have no breakfast and appreciate the low price. However, for those wishing for a cooked breakfast we have never offered bacon or tried to pass off our smoked turkey rashers as bacon, our sausages are 80% meat and our eggs and free range from our own chickens - you can't get better than that!
