Nice character hotelPosted Jan 26, 2015
Pros: Character and location.
Cons: Slightly more efficient heating system but appreciate this is an old building.
Location: Great location to explore Dorking and the nearby Surrey Hills.
Very pleasant atmosphere and whilst not as up top date as other hotels we've stayed in it makes up for this with it's character and charm. Very good value, excellent location and parking. Excellent breakfast and staff very polite.

Ideal for a short breakPosted Dec 28, 2014
Pros: Just about everything. Suggestions for improvement are 'nit picking'.
Cons: Better quality toilet paper Wider range of draft beers Unusual spelling of Rice Krispies
Location: We went to see the pantomime at Dorking Halls. Otherwise we know little about the area, but would like to explore.
Very satisfied with the hotel for a one night stay. We would certainly book again if we have reason to be in the area.

Old hotel with a lot of history, good food.Posted Nov 25, 2014 on Hotels.com
The stay at the hotel was great. This hotel has a great history and of course it is old. You can't expect these hotels to have the standards as the new hotels made. I enjoyed my meals and liked the services. The beds could be better, but as I had to change hotel to Chalk Lane I realized that I missed the beds in The White Horse. Although the room was old it had a bath tub and a shower. I enjoyed walking in the streets and if you want a good British restaurant the area has a lot to offer.

A really good choicePosted Nov 18, 2014
Pros: The old coaching inn atmosphere, the excellent staff and the central location.
Cons: Rooms in the garden annexe seemed bland and meant walking outdoors through the car park for all the hotel facilities; the main hotel is MUCH better.
Location: It's right on the main street. There are lots of independent shops and cafes as well as the usual chains, plus pubs and the Dorking Halls.
We had a room in the old part of the hotel - full of character, it had a four-poster bed and a really spacious bathroom. There was a view on to the main street which was not noisy but full of interest; there was also a view to the Surrey Hills. The breakfast was SUPERB: a huge amount of choice, including various items cooked to order as well as all the buffet items - prompt, friendly service too.

Good with helpful staffPosted Nov 11, 2014 on Hotels.com
Good overall. Very pleasant and helpful desk staff. The rooms in the back are larger and more comfortable than the one I had in the hotel on one occasion. Dorking isn't the most exciting town.

Comfortable "Olde Worlde" HotelPosted Nov 3, 2014
Pros: Convenient. Plenty of Parking. "Olde Worlde" atmosphere. Wifi. Comfortable lounge area
Cons: Odd bits of cleanliness - there were cobwebs around the ceiling and limescale around the taps and edges of the bath. Staff agreed to look into it.
Location: Centrally located and easy to find. We were going to a wedding so didn't have much time to visit the town but it was a pleasant wander around.
We had 2 nights in the hotel and found it comfortable with a nice bathroom. Staff at reception were friendly and welcoming. Excellent breakfast if a little pricey. Would stay here again.
