“Our MUST Have holiday location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2014

We have been coming to Stanwell House for a number of years now and it never fails to hit the mark every time. We have a Whippet and she is made so welcome - it is so unusual to have a dog friendly hotel that has such high standards.

Dogs are welcome in most areas of the hotel except the restaurants, although dogs are welcome to eat with you in the conservatory.

The staff are exceptional, friendly, relaxed but on the ball. The restaurants (two) are both very good, the starters are absolutely brilliant.

Stanwell House is a great hotel, great location in a great town. Check it out.

Room Tip: All rooms are great, Garden rooms brilliant for dog owners

From the moment staff received us - helping with luggage and check-in - throughout our stay, nothing was too much trouble. Staff were courteous and friendly; food was excellent; rooms were all different and all very comfortable; location is perfect. This was a group from a Gardeners' Club. I'd recommend this hotel for any kind of stay.

Excellent service from the staff throughout our stay and would recommend for personal stay or a business team day. The only small downside was finding the parking but given the location, it's not a significant issue.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2014

great location and a really warm welcome from the night duty manager (David I think?) when I arrived late...he was very helpful BUT from arrival in room it went a bit downhill. In a 'boutique' hotel you expect a nice room with a bit of a difference but I found mine really stuffy and a bit old fashioned. Nothing to complain about just not that great. Got quite a lot of noise from the street outside too so quite hard to sleep with the window open and no aircon so not much choice. Didn't have dinner but restaurant looked OK and it was well set out for breakfast in the morning where, once again, the service was great BUT the soft boiled eggs were hard boiled which was a let down. Parking awkward but that comes with the town centre location and you will have to pay to park. Staff great, room average, wifi not working so all in all a bit disappointed. Great location though and lots of nice restaurants in the town.

Room Tip: stay away from rooms overlooking the main high street if you want a quiet night

When we arrived at the hotel my wife and I were concerned as we had to park on the narrow High Street to off load our luggage, but the General Manager came out and took our luggage and drove with me to the small hotel car park. There are other long stay car parks nearby.
The hotel has been well appointed within the obvious constraints of the properties in this quaint town. The restaurant and conservatory are very pleasant although dinner was a little disappointing with the fish being undercooked, however breakfast was extremely good.
On leaving the hotel the owner accompanied me to guide me safely out of the car park - nothing was too much trouble for the staff.
Certainly worth another visit when next in the area.

When I tried to book this hotel online it was full. I called out of curiosity and spoke to the young lady who answered, she not found a room for me for 2 nights she told
Me there was a mid week offer on. 2 nights B&B and one night evening meal for £250.

So I booked it when we arrived we found the car parking for the hotel rather small but we were fortunate to get a space. I think the hotel should try to make a deal with local council and get a few more spaces as it will cost you if you can not park in there allocated area.

After we parked we checked in to be informed that our room had been altered and we were up stairs, it was not only changed but we were upgrade to a suite, this was fantastic really spacious really clean modern perfect as we had a 15month with us and loads of space to crawl around.

We had our evening meal early as the we had a little one but the choice and quality were great you have a budget of 27.50 per person so you can swoop and change from the 3 menus on offer.

Breakfast was the best part for me great choice and great service..

I will be returning to this hotel as we have been treated really well not mention the upgrade were have saved over £200 alone so thank you to all the staff and Jade for taking and asking our stay so enjoyable...
