Reviewed 15 June 2014

I stayed here for a conference this weekend. As others have stated this very much feels like a glorified halls of residence but that said I think they are trying to make the best of the building they have.

On the positive side the rooms are clean and look recently decorated. The shower was powerful, the bed was comfortable and the grounds are really nice. The food was also good, on the whole, and the staff were all friendly and helpful.

On the downside there is a slight lack of attention to detail that seems to permeate the place - I could see a broken roof tile on the ground from my window, for instance. I ordered a coke with dinner and was given a diet coke and the window blinds didn't quite manage to join and keep out the light - none of this is exactly major but it does give the place a slight air of not being entirely well maintained.

More importantly sound does travel between the rooms and I could hear other people moving around from about 6am each morning.

That said the room was a decent price and its perfectly fine for conference accommodation. You may want something else for a holiday.

All in all I wouldn't advise anyone to avoid here but I wouldn't urge you to find it either.

As the last reviewer pointed out, this used to be the Civil Service College, as a result the accommodation is (as others have said) somewhat collegiate/university campus in type - they are clean, bathrooms are fine (in Chaucer where we stayed - they have obviously been retiled/ refitted not long ago) , they have tea and coffee making facilities - great if you're there for a conference but if you're there on holiday/ a break of your own, you won't be wowed with the luxury.

The grounds and Northcote House (if you get a chance to go in) are very nice - breakkie was very good in the Steam Bar and Grill and unlike some previous reviewers, I found all the staff extremely pleasant

OK this, as can be seen from other reviews, is the site of the former Civil Services Training centre and as a consequence you stay in House Blocks and walk between facilities.
You also feel as if you are back at university - which is not a bad thing
Setting this aside the Hotel is set in the most stunning grounds with breathtaking views. Its location is such that it is a great base for visiting the many famous attractions nearby
The rooms are fine but do not expect the modern luxuries such a wide range of TV channels or even flat screens.They are all clean and tidy and the beds comfortable
The "Steam Grill and Bar" is where you have meals. The breakfast is good value. The dinner menu when we ate there was a buffet with adequate but not an adventurous choice of food

Room Tip: Remember to take a torch for the walk back after dark and if there is any risk of rain an umbrella...

Stayed one night as a stop over for Kew Gardens, the hotel is as
De vere describes, a place for Meetings, Training, Conferences & Events. The accommodation blocks are purpose built to house people on the above, room was clean,food was very nice as are the staff, bar and food prices are ok, nothing really to moan about as some have on here, but its as it says, a purpose-built conference venue, must mention the security, lots of cameras, barriers for entry, and key fob only entry on the doors, felt really safe.

I came here with my son for 1 night last year to visit my mums grave. We felt that 1 night wasn't enough to stay in this hotel as there is so much to explore. This year we wanted to come for 3 nights but they didn't have the room as so many weddings going on. We stayed for 2 nights.

We were given a room in Chaucer which we have last year. The rooms were tidy, clean and comfortable adequate wardrobe space and drawers. Tea and coffee making facilities. Hairdryer which is complicated to use as it is attached in the middle draw. I appreciate that this is done so they do not disappear but a word of advice would be to put in top drawer. Ironing board and iron - room service available soaps and shower gel plenty of towels. The TV worked perfectly. The curtains I would say were the shabbier part of the decor maybe be they need a clean ?

The bathroom was nice plenty of hot water what I would mention is that he shower curtain is not long enough to go in the bath I had to shower carefully as to not have water go over the floor.

Breakfast - not open long enough in the week better timing at weekends - not enough fresh fruit and the apricot and prune compote looked lovely but was gloomy upon spooning so decided not to try - porridge was hidden in a corner and I missed it first morning
Not much choice for gluten free diet
Many hotels serve appalling coffee at breakfast but yours is very nice was last year too.

Breakfast staff were nice but not as attentive as last year

Restaurant for some reason was closed on Friday night so we had to eat in the bar which was very noisy but the meal we had was first class and very enjoyable. The service was good and the staff very attentive

Check in was fast and good the staff were lovely and helpful same as check out the staff were wonderful no complaints

The Georgian house was beautiful

The grounds are superb and we love walking around the lush gardens unfortunately we did not see as many rabbits as last year

We will return. Next year as we love Sunningdale park

Stayed here recently for a nearby wedding.
The accommodation was cheap and we were happy with the price that we payed although we did find the hotel very strange - bit like a student campus. It was quite loud and the rooms were very basic. It was a large hotel which was set out like a students campus!
Breakfast was good and the hotel managed well with large numbers of guests.
The hotel was ok for a night as a wedding guest but I wouldn't recommend staying here for a weekend break.

Shocking ! Booked this as it was de vere but can only be described as student accommodation or a hostel
Parking is a shambles, signage is crap
3 entrances none of them marked clearly all with barriers and it's pot luck if you get right one then they tell you to go to main one for reception then sent you back to your original barrier and let you in
Rooms are same as travelodge but cheaper there
I booked B and B but I wasn't on breakfast list so I was asked to go back to reception in the pouring rain so I could pay for it before being allowed in errr no thanks so I went to reception and checked out

Rooms are basic and Arthur negus would be interested in the television

Wouldn't go back if they gave me a free room £89 badly spent

Room Tip: To pick a good room choose another hotel
