“Our best stay in Guildford”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2013 via mobile

We are frequent travellers and have tried several accommodation options around Guildford - this is certainly the best we have experienced by far. Little Gables is a former hunting lodge and is situated in a quiet location on the edge of private woodland.

We stayed in the Aragon room which was spacious and comfortable and had wonderful views over the garden and horses' paddock. It has its own corridor and separate, private bathroom. But for future reference we also looked in the Boleyn bedroom, which, although slightly smaller, had the same views and a lovely en-suite shower room.

Breakfast was plentiful and delicious and included very fresh summer fruits and a full English, which was perfectly cooked and presented. The owners, Daphne and Phil, are excellent hosts and are justifiably proud of their lovely house. They provided a warm welcome and gave us lots of local information throughout our three night stay...nothing seemed too much trouble.

We will certainly stay at Little Gables again on our regular visits to Guildford

We felt very comfortable and nearly at home at Little Gables even though we only stayed a night. Philip phoned a restaurant nearby for us to book a table for dinner. His self-drawn map about how to get there has become a part of our holiday photo album.

It was the best start for our tour through the south.

I stayed there for 8 days and it was a great experience. All credit goes to Philip and Daphne for the extra effort they put in with each one of their guests to make sure they have a wonderful experience while they are at Little Gables. Philip and Daphne would make sure they that you have a comfortable stay. I was there for business purpose and my work place (Surrey Research Park) is just a short walk away and Philip would show you the shortest way. The place is very quiet and good if you want to have a good sleep without any disturbances. On the weekends Philip would make sure he guides you well to make sure you utilize your time well and visit some nice places around. We had some lovely conversations and I would always remember the hospitality shown by Philips and Daphne. I would surely come back to this place.

Highly recommended.

Myself, my daughter and my 18 month old grandson, William, had a most relaxing few days stay at Little Gables.
With a very active toddler we were concerned as to how things may pan out. We had no need what-so-ever to worry. Even the plastic box was provided for Benji's shower!
My daughter had business in London (an easy, short train journey away)., whilst William and I explored the local playparks and soft play centre. Phil and Daphne are a font of knowledge re children's entertainment.
It was brilliant not to be on tenterhooks, knowing that Phil and Daphne were anticipating our every need and really warmed to us all, especially William.

We were visiting family in the area and were looking for somewhere homely and individual. Little Gables offered and indeed delivered everything we could wish for in a bed and breakfast setting. A very warm and relaxed welcome into what is the owners home. Phil and Daphne were our most friendly hosts, offering flexibility when we were uncertain of our arrival time, great facilities in the room and a superb breakfast. This is a most individual bed and breakfast, not standard hotel. Phil and Daphne offer bed and breakfast in their lovely home in a truly unique and peaceful location. Thank you for a great stay....we hope to return!

We were looking for an overnight stay to attend my brother 50th birthday party in nearby Normandy. We looked at a few big brand places in Guildford but are so happy to have come across this hidden gem! Our experience was one of excellent hospitality, a lovely room with everything you need and a superb breakfast. We wish we could have stayed longer and enjoyed the surroundings! We can't wait to return soon to this lovely getaway. Highly recommended.

Decided to stay here after reading all the excellent reviews and was not disappointed.
Arrived after 9.30 after a long journey, but that was no problem as Philip and Daphne (originally from the north east of England) made me feel very welcome on a very hot evening (July 17th - over 80 degrees all day)
Philip gave me free water and when I sat down outside in their garden, he even brought me a bottle of beer. How many hosts would do that ?
Had a relaxing sleep and room was perfect . I might have seen one cobweb but who hasn't when you live in the country (see previous review). Breakfast was very good and I wish I could have stayed longer.
Great northern hospitailty and I will certainly be returning
I've even recommended to my employer to put it on the company database as a place to stay when they need to visit Guildford. Only 15 minutes walk - yes walk - from Surrey Research Park and the hospitals (Philip will show you the way)
Thanks again. Alan
