Spent two nights here over the weekend and found it so comfortable and relaxing. The breakfast is delicious, the dining room is available to help yourself to milk, water and homemade cake. Dorking has many pubs serving real ale offering gems like London Pride and Shere Drop from Surrey Hills as well as a Youngs pub. There are numerous restaurants...

I'm guessing this lovely review is from the first of this weeks 3 Alans.. and if this is the case I must be thanking you for the very kind gifts from your allotment, the purple sprouting broccoli and early rhubarb were both gratefully received. We're really glad you chose to come back to Dorking for another visit, and that you...

A delightful old house, lovely quiet spot overlooking the green, yet only 5 mins walk from town centre. Wonderful hosts. Great breakfast. Loved our double room at the front - great view. Everything was perfect.

We had the pleasure to spend a week in residence at the Waltons while visiting our daughter and her fiance earlier this month. We rented the "Family Room" which gave us an entire SS apartment - living room, bedroom, full kitchen, WC/bath, shower room, and private entryway. The house is stunning, Maggie is a joy, and everything is clean as...

I visited the Walton's for 2 nights when working in dorking. I needed somewhere a walkable distance from my work and also within easy reach of something to eat at night. I was arriving late at night due to travelling by train which was delayed! I phoned Maggie and arrangements were made for a late key. The Walton's is set...

Decided at the very last minute to spend a few days walking and sightseeing in an area I was not familiar with - the Surrey Hills. Looked on TripAdvisor for somewhere to stay and picked The Waltons based on other peoples reports. We certainly were not disappointed! Thanks TripAdvisor. The Surrey Hills are fabulous if you like walking in woods....

This is a fantastic recommendation for our guest house in Rose Hill. I couldn't have been happier to read such a glowing report. We have been closed for a few weeks whilst undergoing renovations, within a few more weeks we hope to be back in business. It's been an enforced holiday from looking after our guests and I have to...

Spent two nights here and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. My room was at the top of the house, it was peaceful, clean and comfortable. The cooked breakfast was excellent, coffee in caftiere and lots of preserves to choose from. The shower a doddle to work. The house is about five minutes from the town centre with a number of pubs...

Maggie and Richard are the perfect hosts. They are friendly, helpful and chatty without being intrusive. The house is fabulous, elegantly decorated and yet comfortable; the bedrooms are large with crisp clean sheets and. facilities are excellent. Breakfast is extensive and Maggie's cakes are great. All this and a two minute walk into the town.
