Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dannyboy31 We had our Wedding reception here and the hotel and staff were faultless
My wife and i stayed here for two nights recently for our wedding reception. The staff were faultless in every way, the food was fantastic and the room and facilities were better than expected for what we paid for.
I have read some reviews and there are complaints about drinks being over priced. If you are well travelled then the prices of this hotel are no higher in general than other places to stay of this quality.
I would definately recommend anyone to have a wedding reception here and many of my guests said they thought the layout of the reception room and staff was outstanding.
Thanks to everyone at the Holiday inn Guildford for looking after us.

I stayed at the hotel with my family for a night. We had dinner which was reasonably priced and it was great our children (under 12) were able to eat free. The staff were friendly and attentive to customers. Our waiter was excellent.

We stayed here as part of a trip around the uk in which we stayed in a number of hotels. It was the only one where a basic level of wifi was not available without charge. Apart from that the hotel was comfortable , clean and a relaxing place to stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Clb1971 Fab stay
Everything about our stay at Holiday Inn Guildford was top notch. My sons and I had travelled down South for a short 2 day break and our stay at the hotel added to the enjoyment of our trip rather than just being somewhere to stay for the night.
Our room was very clean and beds very comfortable. Every member of staff we encountered was incredibly friendly and helpful. We dined in the restaurant the night of our stay and were very impressed by the standard and quality of our meals. All in all a fab stay and if we are ever in the area again we wouldn't hesitate to book again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Marky26 Not bad but could do better
A perfectly comfortable room well suited to a business stay. The poor choice of beer in the bar needs to be addressed. Would you serve rubbish food aimed at the lowest common denominator? No, so why do the same with beer? A couple of beers when working away from home should be a joy, but not here. My main bugbear remains, as last time I was here, that wifi is not free. This is, and always will be, inexcusable in any hotel.

This can feel more like a 3-star than a 4 star hotel as there are no elevators and some rooms are getting a little dated, however this is a reliable hotel, the rooms are of a reasonable size and the service is always excellent.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jonnyB Staff superb!
We often stay here as our son lives in the area. We always feel comfortable and relaxed and nothing is too much trouble for the staff. A special mention this time for the staff in the Bar area who willingly put The final stages of the Tour de France on the TV for us, we were so pleased to be able to watch it. Service was excellent as always and the food delicious. Will be back soon!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Filmvetaren A great place to stay for the family!
We stayed here after flying into Heathrow and picking up our rental car and heading south into the New Forest. Although a wedding reception was taking place in the hotel, we hardly notiiced the other guests. The room was clean, beds comfortable, water pressure in the shower was very impressive. Staff were friendly and courteous and food was very good with a nice breakfast buffet in the morning. There was even a non-lactose alternative which we found very impressive.
There is ample parking outside. As this is part of a chain, don't expect much ambiance, instead it's a very well oiled machine that does its' job well, even looking out for the needs of the children. The room rates were very reasonable indeed.
The only negative point being that there was only 60 minutes of free WiFi. But as a whole, we'd gladly stay here again and would recommend others to stay here as well.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Julie1966 wedding party
We had a two night stay, our rooms were lovely, choice of pillows; firm to soft, leisure facilities very clean and tidy, reception and staff extremely helpful,we couldn't work our air-con, reported to reception and sorted very quickly.
Food very good
Slightly poor service fromthe ' informal host' and bar service very slow, bar function room floor very sticky ans dirty, not the best of over 100 guests having to wait over 20-30 minutes to be served, when they knew over a year ago this event was happening. Excellent service by Lola in the restaurant and breakfast choice and quality excellent

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Emrick Relaxing, clean and great facilities
Reception staff very friendly and efficient at both check-in and check-out. Room clean, fresh and good size. The bathroom was clean but a little tired. Swimming pool and changing rooms great. Although there were a couple of weddings and other events taking place during our stay, we weren't disturbed. The children received play packs at check-in and in the restaurant which was a lovely touch. We had room service one evening which was very average, the television service wasn't working so we couldn't order a film and internet service is very overpriced but overall a good experience, we will definitely return.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by shopperpop50 A really great hotel
My husband & I enjoyed our stay at Holiday Inn Guildford as all the staff made us so welcome. The food in the restaurant is really good with lots of choice. Good location as there is a frequent bus service in the main road outside the hotel that takes you directly into Guildford.
Lovely hotel with lovely people working there!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by jules28 Fair service
Room was OK - bedding clean - facilities to acceptable standard.
University open weekend so great opportunity to promote hotel as between the two campuses - nothing! A missed opportunity!!
NO BREAKFAST INCLUDED _ £10.50 EXTRA PER HEAD
Are you joking as other sites offer breakfast in the price - i.e Norwich who were clearly involved with the University open day earlier this year,.
OK but could do a lot better!!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Smithyjs Good staff but not enough of them
Every member of staff who I came into contact with was nice and helpful, especially in the pool/gym area ... but the bar and restaurant were really seriously understaffed in the evenings. Long waits for service just took the edge off the stay.

Extremely delighted with the services provided throughout the stay.
we would like to mention that reception staff was really knowledgeable and welcoming.
also the staff in restaurant and bar is amazing; few staff like Kishore, Apple, Kishan were amazing.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by nobleman Why belong to a loyalty program when it's ignored?
None of the offered benefits of being Gold Ambassador were offered and when I asked for a bottle of water, you might have thought I was being totally unreasonable from the reaction I got! This stay made me wonder why I stick with IHG. The front desk tried to tell me they aren't actually part of Holiday Inn, but an individual franchise which is why they don't acknowledge the priority club - not sure if this is true??

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cavalier69 Excellent Service by Management & Staff for a very special occasion
I originally booked way back in February for a disabled friendly room. My daughters wedding was held there.
I was given a ground floor room which was located ideally to meet all the guests requirements attending for the wedding. The Manager in charge of the Wedding and the staff were most helpful with every request. I joined in clearing up in the early hours of Saturday morning with the guys from the hotel which was conducted in a jovial manner considering the time of night.
I booked and had a meal the night before (Thursday) with 5 others who were also staying for 2 nights. While the service was very slow (45 minutes waiting for a drink), the meal was lovely. Their award winning breakfast was brilliant. I'm not a regular hotel stayer, but I have to state it was well worth the cost. Highly recommended - Many Thanks to everyone.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bugg A welcoming atmosphere
I was welcomed back as a returning guest. Small things that make such a difference: delightful young man at breakfast brought me a large pot of tea, he remembered that I like two large cupfuls! Gentleman on reception arranged for heater in my bedroom, remembering that I had felt cold during a previous stay. Staff are most definitely of top quality here and very well trained to take care of guests. As a Priority Club Platinum member I was upgraded to a lovely room, this is the first time I have received a room upgrade and it was much appreciated, thank you.

Rooms are fab, spa is great, service in restaurant is left wanting, sadly. Having dined there twice in one week and several times previously, I'm sad to say the waiting staff are still inattentive and extremely slow.
