“Short stay”
Reviewed 6 November 2012

The rooms are very modern and comfortable with all required amenities. Could be more tea and coffee sachets, No doubt I could have had more if I'd asked. Staff were very polite and helpful. Breakfast was fresh and plentiful in a comfortable dining room.

My only issue is a very busy road at the back, though thats common with so many hotels. Did not disturb my sleep even with the window open.

I managed to book the Princes Royal the same day i needed to stay at a good rate for the area of £82.00 including breakfast.

The hotel is not attached to the pub but very close behind it with key card access, the room was big and had all the amenities you needed, the only issue I found is that it was a little cold and the hearter took a while to warm up.

The pub was great serving good food and beer.

I could not fault the service as all the staff were very polite and proffesional.

My only issue is trying to say again I found the prices much more expensive to book in advance which is a shame

It's the second time that my colleague and I have stayed here and it was even nicer than we remembered. It was first recommended by someone who works for us and who's a local guy.
Looking at a lot of the pictures of this place on tripadvisor, it looks very classy or even too classy. In reality, this is a very nice no-nonsense place, with a friendly staff, nice rooms and good food. You can have dinner a-la-carte or ordering it at the bar and pick your own table. We absolutely prefer the latter.
Next time we have to be here, we absolutely go back here!!

This was the second time we have used here for a function and once again the food provided in a buffet was good quality and the room size we were in was perfect for our numbers (around 60). Having a good size car park means that your guests have no problem with parking too. The staff are very helpful and friendly and the general fell of the place is really nice. I would definately recommend this venue for function hire.

Our 3 night stay was an ideal location for visiting the Royal Surrey Hospital. As we were coming and going at all hours the card entry system was ideal. The bedrooms themselves being in a separate building made it all the more convenient with parking outside it meant we were not worried about getting a car park space in the pub car park. The food was excellent and well presented with friendly and attentive staff. Very good lunches and the breakfast was well cooked. Fine array of cereals, fresh fruit including pineapple and melon and a croissant that was nice and warm and light as a feather. The bedroom was well appointed and very clean. Clean towels whenver you want them and a well replenished tea/coffee tray each day.
One thing you must try are the famous chips which are exemplorary. What more can I say it is was it says on the tin and the bedroom wase as you see in the photos. Nothing hidden and certainly nothing taken away. We will use this hotel as our base when in the Guildford area. Well done Princess Roya

Room Tip: We were in room 20 ( first floor ) which is next to a private staff room with no bedroom the othersi...

We stayed one night and were put in a twin room. Unfortunately the drains were malfunctioning which made the room smell. I think this was a one off problem. We complained,eventually spoke to the manager and she dealt with it admirably and would commend her customer services skills. We would stay again for this reason alone. Breakfasts were good if a little chaotic. Didn't have dinner but the menu looked good.

Room Tip: check room 15 dies not smell??

Stayed one night here for business. Have stayed here before. Rooms are well appointed, flat screen tv, coffee, biscuits, iron and ironing board. Good water pressure in shower. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Pub has restaurant and does bar food. Good quality fresh ingredients and all freshly prepared. Excellent quality cooked breakfast.

My biggest tip is not to follow the sat nav to find this place - this hotel is off the A31 at the Runfold exit on the old Guildford road not the A31 Guildford road.

There is road noise from the A31 - background "hum" and not an intrusion.

Free wifi in roooms and pub with quite a fast speed.

Room Tip: all rooms have road noise but its more of a background noise and probably only a problem for light s...
