        Individual guest reviews

        • Family with children

          Good all round experience and good value for money.

          Only downside was the rather officious "Restaurant Manager" with the clipboard who runs the breakfasts..

          • Average rating
        • Older travelers

          Attractive facade, Generous size room, Clean, Bathroom was decorated in lovely quality blue/white tiles- very refreshing!

          The very hard mattress and synthetic pillows and there was no comfy armchair to relax in.

          • Average rating
        • Older travelers

          It was a partly nostalgic trip as we had our honeymoon here in 1958. The hotel is how I remeber it , although there have been additions to the building,it still has a good feel about it. We thought that the breakfast was excellent, and the new swimming pool very good.

          A bit of a struggle to park the car at the weekends.

          Staff very helpful and friendly. Good cooked food from the bar and a good breakfast. Receptionist managed to extend my stay to two nights without any problem.

          Blanket used as bedding. It is 2011 so why not use comfortable duvets like other hotels? I've not been in a hotel with blankets for some years now. Also the pointless heavy bed cover quilt was old and stained.

          Friendliness of Staff.

          Unfortunately, the leisure facilities (pool etc.) didn't reflect the promotional pictures, rather disappointing.

          We had dinner for two for £38 at the hotels restaurant. Great food. Great service! (An Italian lady) and great value.

          The pool, sauna, and jacuzzi was cold. The steam room needs refurbishing and reconditioning.

          • Average rating
        • Older travelers

          Excellent service and friendly efficient staff. Food very good value for money,though it would have been even better had there been more choice.Location of the Elstead is both pleasant and quiet but also convenient for the shops,beach and countryside.

          Our room was very dated including the bathroom and as for the shower, it produced no more than a trickle which meant showering seemed to take forever. We think that the hotel is now in need of a refurb though the conservatory is a most pleasant area for relaxing in morning and evening.
