“Great breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2014

We had 2 nights in this excellent hotel. We were made to feel v welcome on arrival and the staff continued to be efficient and friendly throughout our stay. We had a deluxe double which was a good size and spotlessly clean although the bathroom was a little small. We had everything we needed in the room including fridge, iron, TV, hairdryer and products. Plus, most importantly, the bed was large and v comfy. The hotel is also conveniently located - easy walking distance to the town and train station. Would definitely recommend.

Really nice friendly guest house - great people, and dinner cooked fresh to order. Nice to see a hotel with an honesty bar. I was really appreciative that I was able to use my room a bit beyond the usual check out time as I had an online conference to chair - which I managed over the very fast and stable (and other hotels, please note) free wi-fi. Good breakfast as well - much better than the buffet you get even in big expensive hotels. Not sure if I'll need to be back in Guildford again, but if I am, I'll be back.

We stayed for two nights at this hotel. The rooms are small, but had room enough for us. We chose to do a late check-in, and the procedure worked without problems.
The hotel is in walking distance to the train station and situated in a residential area in Guildford, so noise was not an issue.

Thank you for choosing Asperion for your recent short trip to Guildford and for posting your review on TripAdvisor.

We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and that you found our "late night arrival" procedure easy to follow. We are also glad that you found our location conveniently close to Guildford town centre, which makes it easy for the guests to reach the High Street and other points of interest (i.e. University of Surrey, Research Park, train station) on foot.

Thank you for your positive comments about out breakfast! We cook our dishes with passion and attention to detail, hence your feedback is rewarding and much appreciated.

We sincerely hope you will come and stay with us on the occasion of your next visit to the area.

Best regards

Stayed one night with a friend to visit Surrey University. Very nice hotel, small and cozy with all the facilities. Room was nicely decorated, clean with all the amenities of a 4 star hotel.
The breakfast was lovely a bit expensive(if you book directly through hotel's website breakfast is complimentary in rate).
Convenient location.

I stayed here on business and was very impressed. If I am honest it wouldn't have been my first choice but due to booking late & Guildford for some reason being practically sold out I had little choice.
I arrived late with a colleague & after a swift check in I was shown to my room (you don't get that in most chain hotels!). I was also offered fresh milk for tea/coffee in my room which was also a pleasant surprise.
The room itself was clean/tidy & functional with everything you would expect (probably slightly more if honest, TV, Tea/coffee/trouser press, alarm clock, toiletries.
The bed was comfy & I had a pleasant night's sleep, for breakfast there was a selection of help yourself, cereals, fruit etc. There was also a selection of cooked breakfast's.
All in all very good, only a couple of things could be improved for me personally, I was on the front of the building & my room had venetian blinds which meant it lacked a bit of cosiness plus they aren't as good as curtains for blocking out light or reducing outside noise (although it wasn't excessive). For breakfast I ordered poached eggs & got a slice of toast with an egg on it (the menu was plural!), a couple of slices of toast with an egg on each would have been great!
Also within walking distance of Guildford centre which was useful when going for some food & a drink!

Thank you for choosing the Asperion for your recent business trip to Guildford, and for posting your review on this web site.

We are delighted that you found your room comfortable, clean and tidy, with facilities that exceeded your expectations. We are also thrilled that you felt welcomed and looked after by our staff, and that you appreciated those little touches like being shown to your room and being offered fresh milk for tea and coffee.
We are really sorry to read that your breakfast order was misunderstood. I can confirm that our “poached eggs on toast” are always two, as stated on the menu, unless the guest asks for a single egg. Please do accept our sincere apologies for what happened.

We look forward to welcoming you back at Asperion. Hopefully our hotel will become one of your favourite choices when travelling to Guildford.

Kindest regards

Rooms are fited out with fidges bonus is advised that no outside drinks and food cannot be bought in.
Breakfast is very nice and good private parking area. Dose come across as a retirement home from start of stay.
15 min to town for shops and pubs watch out cabs cost £7 plus for a short trip back.

Room Tip: All right costs a lot staff friendly
