“Seedy”
Reviewed 2 February 2014

Difficult to find at night, on main road , car park for 2 vehicles. Landlady was not aware of my online booking. She offered me a room ensuite but wanting £10 extra, saying she had no ordinary rooms - but then remembered and moved me to the attic room - which had hardly any headroom, not been cleaned, very scruffy, seedy decor.
No armchair, not even a bedside lamp - and when I borrowed one from an empty room next day it was promptly removed!
Bed not comfortable. Shower unit came away from wall, seemed unsafe. The other bathroom was good.
Electrics in bedroom not safe. I liked the wooden shutters.
Overpriced at £50 for this standard.

Room Tip: Avoid attic unless youre a dwarf.

The building was collapsing.. At 60 quids per night I would at least expect a tidy room.. Rubbish from the previous tenants, a toilet full of hair and the WC was just dirty..
Would not recommend to someone else.

Having read the good reviews for this B&B on TripAdvisor I was disappointed with our visit and can only assume it was maybe just that room (1).

Upsides : a very central and convenient location and a very welcoming and helpful landlady. The beds were very comfortable, the room was very quiet, there were adjustable wooden shutters on the windows which meant no light disruption in the morning - we slept well. The facilities were good and the room was clearn with attractive, if a little tired decor.
Not keen going to a cafe for breakfast but I must say the breakfast was excellent.

Down sides: The room was very small and lacked attention to detail e.g. there was a screw in the door to allow it to be pulled to when going out - a practical solution that (call my fussy) didn't do much for first impressions. The ensuite shower room appeared clean overall and attractively fitted out but although the fittings looked relatively recent there were clear limescale marks all over the chome.

As I said, given the other rave reviews, I can only assume Room 1 is a work in progress and at £60 the room was not expensive.

Lovely rooms, recently renovated, and GREAT bathroom. Very clean, and the owner Sue couldn't be more helpful and lovely! We stayed for three nights, and the service was superb. And, it' only a 10 minute walk to city center! There's a great breakfast cafe just across the road where you can get a full english, and which gives great value for money! We had a great stay, really enjoyed it, and we would absolutely 100 % recommend you, if you're going to Guildford, to stay at Acacia Villas Guest House!

Conveniently located for the town centre, the room has the most comfortable bed i have ever slept in at a hotel. Everything is there one needs for a comfortable stay, tv, coffee making facilities and a good hot shower.

And the landlady Sue is very friendly and a real diamond.

Thoroughly recommended since the local Travelodge is too noisy and not one of the best.

Having just stayed at Acacia Villas for two nights I would just like to say how nice I found it and how convenient for the town centre. The room I had was clean and fresh with ensuite and flat screen TV, free Wi-Fi, tea and coffee and loads of it. The owner was so friendly and helpful and couldn't do enough. She even ran me to the wedding I was there for. Although still a little work in progress, in the main it has been refurbished throughout and I would thoroughly recommend a stay!
