Nice modern dog friendly hotel

Posted Nov 25, 2014
Pros: Ambience, facilities and the bonus factor that we could bring our dog
Cons: Nothing really
Location: Location ideal for us as were meeting friends for overnight stop and this was half way. Guildford close by for shopping
Great to find a modern hotel that welcomes dogs, our black lab had a wonderful time! Good facilities although we didn't have time to use pool etc. Excellent meal in Chop House with 4 four friends

Nice hotel and nice experience

Posted Nov 15, 2014
Enjoyed the pool area and the bar. Late night food was a dissapointment, hotel had no cheese for cheese and crackers and pizza was for too burnt and unedible. Other than this the staff were lovely and would stay again.

Let down by short cuts and stretched staff

Posted Oct 27, 2014
Pros: The facilities are good, exceptionally clean and the pool is lovely. The rooms are attractive and modern. Great staff if you can find them.
Cons: more staff, customer experience not based on profit but service, bigger better beds and family rooms and better coffee - please
Location: no idea, we went to a wedding
We booked a family room, one double two singles. We got one double, one single bed and one child in with us - in our small single beds pushed together to make a double with a big hole in the middle. (According to the small print the two singles were by request!) The room was small but clean. The staff were efficient and friendly but unsupported and far too few in number for the reception, restaurant and housekeeping. Breakfast was included, which was fine but the coffee was AWFUL everywhere, even in the affiliated Starbucks! Eww a weekend of poor sleep, bad coffee plus some unexpected costs, a broken bath and a good bit of antisocial behaviour thrown in made for an experience that we can not recommend. Sorry :(

Dosappointed

Posted Aug 13, 2014 on Hotels.com
I enjoyed my time at the Urban Village. the food and facilities were very good indeed. However, my stay was marred by the fact that, although housekeeping were in every day, my room was never dusted. Also, the cups and spoons I had used were not cleaned by the maids. I had rinsed them and left them to drain in the bathroom and that's where they remained. On my last monring, the maid came to my door just after 9am, despite check-out not being until 11am. Sadly, these events did, slightly, detract from my overall thoughts about the hotel. That said, I would probably use it again.

Great Hotel & Value for Money but go for ROOM ONLY

Posted Aug 12, 2014 on Hotels.com
Had a two night stay for a family celebratory weekend. Decided to go for the dinner bed and breakfast option for night one as it seemed like it was a reasonable price. However, when we went to the restaurant we were given a seperate menu to the main menu with limited choice and felt we were treated like second class citizens and at one point we were told that we were 'on the cheap' menu. A shame as it was a lovely hotel and room with great staff and amenities but the restaurant experience let it down considerably. Go for room and breakfast but not the dinner inclusion when booking.
