Holroyd Arms
Ranked #17 of 22 Guildford B&B and Inns
Reviewed 19 December 2011

Couldn't find a room at a decent price in Woking, I came across this one in Guildford.

Wouldn't stay here again.

The place is a neighbourhood pub, the lanlady is friendly and the food is edible but no more. The rooms are in a lodge type affair behind the pub. very gloomy, tiny TV, couldn't get the shower to run at more than a lukewarm dribble.

The place is too far out to walk to, so by the time I'd paid for taxi's and trains to Woking, it cost me about £75 a night anyway

Never again

Room Tip: Spend a bit more on a premier Inn

Reviewed 1 December 2011

The accommodation is basic, but very good value for money. A twin room for two nights at a total of 116 pounds is very reasonable indeed and I couldn't find anything like that price anywhere else in Guildford when I was looking at short notice. The room was spacious and the beds were comfortable and clean. The staff are friendly and helpful and always available. A heater which wasn't working properly was replaced immediately. The breakfast is very good, as is the food available during the day. We didn't experience any of the negatives others have written in their reviews. It was very quiet in the accommodation other than the normal noise of people coming in at night to their rooms or leaving in the morning for work. It's very convenient for Guildford town centre. We also liked the pub for it's relaxed, friendly and homely atmosphere. I would have no hesitation in staying there again or recommending it to anyone else that I know.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Let me introduce myself My name is Andrew and i am the new owner of the Holroyd arms,i have worked here for the previous 3 years as a manager where my hands were firmly tied behind my back where making improvements to the business were concerned. as of October 2014 i became the owner of the business and have made massive strides in making customers visits here more enjoyable,i have addressed most of the issues raised on Trip advisor and am continuing to raise the standards throughout the business,that being said some of t6he reviews placed on this site are way over the top with their critic. If you need a clean,warm and comfortable nights stay for a small budget then we are your destination choice,we are a 2 star rated business and dont claim to be anything but that,but just because of our rating it dose not mean we dont make every effort to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Unfortunately this platform is mainly used by customers who are inclined to complain,we are fully booked week after week and the percentage of complaints to non complaints is about 5% if all our happy customers were to write reviews i wouldnt need to justify myself. So please dont be put off by the old reviews on this site and see for yourselves THE HOLROYD ARMS is a pleasant B&B. ANDREW ... more   less
