“Very nice hotel”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

I never was that impressed with Holiday Inn Express but this hotel is something else. The place seems to be a little bit upscaled compared to other 'Express' formula hotels.

Nice rooms, great beds and excellent service by friendly staff. There's a nice bar in the hotel but also a very good pub accross the street in the middle of the Epsom Downs race course. I'm in Epsom pretty frequently and I think I just found my new 'standard' hotel.

Excellent staff. Couldn't fault the attention their attentiveness Clean and fresh reception and public spaces. Rooms simple and basic but CLEAN. Bed firm but fine. If I was to recommend an improvement it would be to add iron and ironing board.

Stayed in a family room en route to Gatwick airport which is about half drive away. Nice quiet clean room, sofa bed was a bit lumpy and the double bed was a bit hard. Other than that it was all good.
Would stay here again when in the area on business.

Thank you for your trip advisor review, it’s great to hear you found your room to be quiet and clean. In April we just had all our double beds replaced with Hypnos mattresses and we have received a lot of positive feedback. However we do appreciate that a mattress be it firm or soft is a personal choice and unfortunately we cannot accommodate everyone’s preference. Thank you again, we look forward to welcoming you back again soon for business or with the family.

Kind Regards

This was my first stay at this hotel and I have to say that it turned out to be better than what my heart and head suggested to me it would be like. Very friendly staff. Excellent check-in and check out service and the room, whilst being somewhat minimalist was functional, clean and had an excellent shower. The only thing I would criticise was the price of what was a very restricted menu - somewhat expensive - albeit the food quality was in no doubt and neither was the service. What was very note worthy was the trouble the hotel went to; to return some expensive leather boots I had inadvertently left in my room. They packaged them up in a box and sent them Royal Mail Special Delivery. Thank you to all the staff involved. Happily stay there again and hope that this time I don't leave them with the expense of repatriating me with my belongings!

It's lovely to be reading your review, thank you for confirming you have been reunited with your boots. I’m happy to hear that the hotel exceeded your expectations. Being a Holiday Inn Express hotel we often find that guests expect a full service hotel and confuse the Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express brand offering. Thank you again for your lovely review, we hope this will be a great help to future travellers.

Very comfortable room, very clean. Great views out across the racecourse on a sunny evening.

Great choice of evening meals in the bar, good food and very reasonable price.

Breakfast is included and has everything you need as long as bacon is not an absolute essential.

On site free car parking space, free wifi, great value for money.

This hotel makes me want to come to Epsom more often.

This is a good value hotel on the doorstep Epsom Racecourse. The staff are friendly and the hotel really clean. It has a welcoming bar and convenient restaurant.

The breakfast - included in the price - was ample though lacking bacon. Down side for me was the pillows but that is minor and very personal.

If you are looking for a reasonable hotel at Epsom / Surrey this is worth looking at.
