“Fabulous”
Reviewed 20 June 2014

Stayed here for the first time and it definitely won't be the last. The hotel is beautiful, lovely big rooms, tastefully decorated and clean. The breakfast is one of the best I've had, freshly cooked and a huge choice. Dinner was delicious and very reasonably priced, only sad I could not stay for lunch as that looked delicious also. The staff were helpful, polite and nothing was too much of a problem. Will definitely be returning next year.

We often call in for lunch here. Fabulous food, great staff, delightful atmosphere. Inside in the winter is cosy and welcoming. Outside in the summer in the garden is charming. We have never been disappointed with the food or the service.

Stayed for 2 nights and loved it. The room was great and the bed was so comfortable. Breakfast was delicious. The staff were very helpful and looked after us really well, especially the lady and gentleman who served us breakfast. (Sorry, I didn't get their names) but they were very attentive and friendly. The bar was busy and had a great atmosphere and it was lovely to sit outside on the terrace. My only critisism was the evening meal. It was good but not great. The service was excellent but the food needed a bit more imagination. Lovely stay and would book again. Thank you.

Room Tip: Room 8 was lovely.

I have stayed here on many occasions and it never fails to deliver.
The staff are very helpful, plenty of parking, station to London 5 mins away as also a parade of shops and restaurants.
The rooms are furnished to a high standard with nice bathrooms, showers by Hansgrohe.
Plenty of tea/coffee. Food also very good, dinner menu bit limited but always something nice to eat and a little expensive. Breakfast really good and cooked fresh and again staff only too happy to help.

Room Tip: All upstairs rooms, have never stayed on ground floor

What a lovely place! Great quality food and rooms, spotlessly clean, lovely modern bathroom. Nice little touches - good mix of hot drinks in bedroom with proper coffee and fresh milk, and complimentary mineral water in the fridge. Thoroughly recommend this place.

Originally a Coaching Inn the Foley is now a delightful boutique style hotel in Glaygate, Esher surrounded by the beautiful Surrey countryside. Situated close to the Claygate railway station, 35 minutes to London, 25 minutes by road (off peak) to Heathrow Airport and close to Hampton Court Palace, the Foley is a perfect place to spend a few days in, while visiting Surrey. Friendly staff, lovely rooms with comfortable beds, great food in the dining room and a pleasant little pub, all added to the enjoyment of our three night stay. Would highly recommended a visit.

Reviewed 30 April 2014

The last Friday in April has turned into race-day for us and this year we looked slightly further afield than Esher having been disappointed in the past.

The Foley is simply fabulous (best rare fillet steak I've eaten for years) and offered a good veggie option for my OH. Excellent dining options and great, fresh breakfast choices. The room was large and so was the bed! The only problem (and it's very minor) was that the curtains didn't come right across the window leaving the light to surge in down the side right onto my sleeping face at about 5.30am. I said it was minor ;~)

I daresay we'll be visiting again next April and will certainly look forward to it.
