The Drummond Arms Hotel
Ranked #12 of 22 Guildford B&B and Inns
Reviewed 28 June 2014

My partner and I decided to have lunch in Albury, so The Drummond seemed to be the obvious place. We ordered a couple of starters as we were going to a Dinner party later that evening.

My lamb kofta and Greek salad was off !! I have saved two of them to be sent off for health and safety reasons. My partners food fed his to our dog!!

I overheard two elderly ladies, when asked how their cous cous was both said it was horrid! One of them said that she found 3 elastic bands in her meal!! The waitress told her that this dish was new to the menu!!!!

I have never put a review on this web site, but this time I really feel I need to forwarn you not to have lunch here !!

Had lunch here during a day trout fishing at the local lakes. Good beer and a lovely couple of hours in the garden. The food was not special - my pie was unexciting and my companion's pork was quantity and not quality. A bit of thought on the food front and the rating could easily be very good.

This hotel was a really good place for a wonderful walking weekend. It is more of a pub with rooms and the building is old so the floors slope and there is some road noise at the front. Furnishings are on the slightly faded sight but more importantly all the basics are very good. Comfortable beds, good linens, TV, WiFi, tea and coffee and, a nice touch, small bottles of water.

We had two rooms, one had a lovely new bathroom and the other was a bit old.but fine.

We liked the restaurant which was comfortably busy and both the evening meal and the breakfast were really good with enormous portions. The staff were all very welcoming. Recommended.

The rooms are dated and old with work needed really, but the hotel/pub is clean and tidy and the staff are super helpful so it is worth a visit. It is a bit busy at the front of the hotel though so if you are a light sleeper ask for a room at the back of the hotel. Finally the wifi is rather hit and miss in the rooms so dont rely on it

Five families walked to the Drummond Arms for lunch having only booked on that morning. The 27 of us ( and four dogs) were warmly welcomed, the service was efficient and very friendly and the food was great. The staff went out of their way to accomadate us and we all thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Thank you.

As a lone female staying overnight on business, it was a pleasure to stay at the Drummond Arms. The staff were polite, friendly and went out of their way to ensure I had everything I needed. The food was delicious, the rooms clean and good value for money. Thank you for making my short stay such a pleasant one.

Visited the Drummond for tea on Sunday, and wasn't disappointed. Haven't visited the area before and had to rely on feedback from Trip Advisor. There was a burger evening and was happy with the quality and value.

This isn't the fault of the Drummond, but as a northerner, I do find the beer warm and flat, which was a shame because they had some decent real ales on the bar.

Would definitely go again though
