Over the last Bank Holiday weekend I stayed two nights at the Barnett Hill Hotel Wonersh near Guildford Surrey.The weather was perfect and the spectacular grounds which are beautifully maintained were at their best,with azaleas,rhododendrons and wysteria providing a stunning backcloth to well manicured lawns,perfect hedges and a huge variety of lovely trees.I occupied a single room in what is described as "the Courtyard",a short distance from the main building which is a Queen Anne style Country house,full of character and very imposing.
The room was spotlessly clean and the adjoining bathroom well appointed,but the room was small and a little cramped,-perhaps explaining why the cost was relatively cheap,slightly more than £70 per night including breakfast.which,-having regard to the surroundings,I thought a bargain. I did not like the self-service breakfast but dinner in the evening was enjoyable if not four star,The staff were cheerful and helpful.If the room had been a little larger I would have rated the accomodation four star. All in all a very enjoyable experience.
