Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Excellent venue
As a regular traveller I found this site to be extremely clean, and very easy to find. As it is sited away from main throughways it is extremely quiet. Will stay again if in the same neck of the wood.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jiffy2810 Great location, good experience
This hotel is in a great location and the overall experience is good. The reception staff were excellent and the rooms are among the best for this grade of hotel, if a little more expensive. This is the second time we have stayed here and chose it for location and room quality. One element which reduces our score is the same as that encountered on our first visit - the rather chaotic arrangements for breakfast. There is insufficient seating, despite varying our timing. The arrangements for drinks, toast etc are too cramped and this is made worse by the time it takes to get a decent piece of toast from the self service toasters. This resulted in people jumping the queue and placing their bread in the machine while others waited.
The second element of criticism, which we did not encounter on our first visit and hopefully is a 'one -off' ,' was the members of a large party, including children running up and down the corridor well after midnight. As we were on the ground floor the staff must have been aware of this from the noise being made. It seems no action was taken.
However, we remain positive about this hotel and we would certainly stay there again, but PLEASE improve the arrangements for breakfast.

A ggod experience.
It would have been good to have had bacon at breakfast, but the sausage was much better than the average hotel sausage.
No other negatives. We slept well and comfortably.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jonah57 A Good Experience.
Family members had previously recommended Epsom H.I. Express and we were not disappointed. Due to St. Jude the previous day we were forced to move our booking forward to the following night and the member of staff on reception could not have been more helpful. He ensured that we did not have to pay for the cancelled night. The hotel was bright and spotlessly clean. Parking was plentiful and the breakfast menu varied. Will certainly return to Epsom H.I. Express.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by viry123 Excellent stay but extremely uncomfortable kids bed.
Superb location and great value for money. My one reason to moan would have to be the 'camp bed ' for my two kids. We have paid each time we have stayed here for a family room. There is one comfortable kingsize bed and a make shift camp bed which my 13 year old daughter and 5 year old son share. In my opinion a family room should include either 2 single beds or a double bed and not a camp bed. This is the only reason to complain!

You get what you pay for - a good clean room, friendly staff, hot breakfast, good nights sleep. It is a good job that you can get more tea, coffee and milk as there is never enough of these left in the rooms

Stayed here on a Saturday night for a leisure break and was not disappointed. The staff were simply lovely and could not do enough for you. The rooms spotless and well presented. Breakfast is plentiful and free, so what more could you want. The location was ideal right next to the Downs and raceourse, with a pleasant pub next door for a family meal. Thank You.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Pet42 Partly furnished bedroom
Booked a double room with sofa. Paid in advance.Upon arrival we were informed that, due to heating problems, we had been reallocated an alternative room. This contained a double bed, one bedside table, a large empty space instead of a sofa and a single upright chair.Having contacted reception we were promised further seating would be provided.This never arrived! Having utilised the one chair as a makeshift bedside table we spent an uncomfortable evening watching TV sitting in the end of of the bed! This was our second visit. Probably won't be returning!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by TREVLIN Hotel Stay
Our stay was very average. The shower floor was very slippery. Breakfast was very limited in variety and the cooked food was not very hot. We had to go out in the pouring rain to find an evening meal, would have preferred an evening meal in the hotel restaurant or bar area. We asked for a quite room, unfortunately a lot of heavy footfall from the room above. The TV did not have all the channels that were offered on screen.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by LUFCRhino The hotel is in a good location but that is about it
Poor warm breakfast ,powdery scrambled eggs,poor quality sausage meat hard baked beans but the cereals are OK.
Slow bar service and I did not recieve any IHG bounus incentives as a Priority Club Member,I was advised that their Head Office has decided not to participate in the promotion which seems strange to me as I thought it was a National IHG Brand promotion.

We are not happy especially it is our first time to go there. The post code that written on the website is nor the correct one. They should put a note that other people encountered those problems and should let us know before the travel time because it really waste our time especially we got small kids...

I stayed here with my husband and children and all loved our stay. We slept very well, the room was clean and comfortable and had a lovely breakfast. There is a lovely pub restaurant just across the road that serve beautiful meals til late. Staff were very friendly and happy to help anytime. We will return and I have recommended to friends going chessington world of adventures as its the perfect place to stay.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by catz12345 Lovley spacious hotel
Great reception area. staff polite... Our room had no towels. I saw a maid and asked her kindly for some towels to be put outside our room.she did not understand what i asked for ,she was not english so i showed her the towels on her trolley and said Towels ...and she shook her head ... :-/ !!!! so I had to ring someone that evening to get some .
The breakfast in the morning was the biggest dissapointment :-(
as the hot food was concerned. The only options were scrambled egg, baked beans and sausage. No vegetarian options and it took ages!!!!!! for the toast to cook so shame about that . It lets the hotel down sorry :-(

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by CALSUFF Quiet Hotel, Great Setting but Poor Customer Service
Let's start with the positives.
The hotel is in a great setting with clean, tidy and comfortable rooms and is remarkably quiet. We had a lovely dinner at the pub across the road and we felt that we had made a good choice of hotel.
However, there was one service related factor which I found incredibly disappointing and rather annoying and, to be honest, it is something that would certainly make me think twice about staying here again. There was a distinct lack of ‘welcome or warmth’ from the reception staff.
Basic common courtesy and customer focussed service costs Holiday Inn nothing, but the staff at this hotel acted as though it was rationed. There was no eye contact at reception on arrival whatsoever, merely “your room is not ready so we will have to give you another” (which was also not fully prepared but not an issue#. I was not greeted as a Rewards Club Member and any potential pleasantries were swiftly bypassed in favour of merely telling us our room was on the third floor.
No eye contact again at check out. No “have you had a good stay” or “was everything ok for you”. Nothing other than, and I quote, “ok that’s it then” when I handed over the key.
I cannot provide a name for this staff member as he was not wearing a name badge #or tie for that matter# at either check in or check out. In any event, he was not alone in being what I considered to be curt and purely perfunctory in his duties on reception.
Even members of my family commented that we had never stayed at a hotel before where staff on reception never smiled – NOT ONCE. People, a smile costs nothing but is worth a great deal !
Having vented my frustration regarding the very poor service at reception, I would like to make particular mention of Audrius who I assume works with the housekeeping team #?).When making up our room he was extremely friendly and incredibly polite – and yes, he smiled!! We crossed paths again when he was cleaning the inside of the lift and, again, he was both friendly and courteous.
The reception staff could learn a great deal from this young man. Thank you Audrius.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by canon Night's sleep spoilt by noise
The Reception staff were exceptionally helpful and pleasant and the breakfast was good.
We asked for a quiet room and were given a room overlooking the race course which we also asked for. However, we were disturbed 3 times during the night by people below our window, presumably coming out to smoke.
When it happened again at 3.30 am, and people were making such a noise, I rang down and complained to the Night Manager. Eventually it stopped. But we had a very disturbed night.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by LJ80 Evening meal not accommodating for children...
Disappointed that there was no childrens menu for an evening meal. We even asked if the portions could be halved for a child and the staff said 'this was not possible'.
We ended up having to find somewhere else to eat in Epsom. Luckily came across a nice place that accommodated for children!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jones1704 Fantastic!
We stayed here as a family before a night at chessington. Fantastic views over raceground. Nice clean room. We ate the pub around the corner which was great.
Breakfast was very good, but the staff did not clear the tables very efficiently. We used the sat nav to get from the hotel the park, but ended up going in circles 3 times, but when we eventually got there, it was around 30mins drive. Will definately use again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Pilot60 OK but could do better
I'm a regular here because its convenient for work and has some good places to eat near by. I wouldn't eat in the hotel the kitchen is basic so a lot of food is prepared else where and microwaved. The breakfast is included but very few would pay for it, its basic. The staff are friendly and helpful but I have concerns see below:
Problems so far:
Given a room occupied by another guest which raises concerns about security. The staff were quick to offer another room but no apology!
Raw sausages at breakfast. Staff didn't remove the offending food urgently and warn other guests eating at the time.
Bathroom sink smelly and slow to empty due to the waste being full, I reported it but it wasn't resolved.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Chuckles 126 is definitely not a lucky number!!
I stay at this hotel approx 3 weeks out of every month - which tells you that I like it, because of its convenience, cleanliness, and the staff are always very welcoming. BUT I had to write a review today because my current stay (I have another 2 nights to look forward to !!) has proven to be way below the usual standard!
I normally get a room on the top floor, which is perfect - but this time I was put on the 2nd floor, right next to the refuse area and (as I found out this morning) just above where the staff like to have a sneaky cigarette! Not an issue I am sure when you can have the windows closed - but I like to sleep with mine open most of the year. Not only that, but when I did see the refuse area immediately below my window my first thought was - lets hope it is not refuse collection day tomorrow..............wrong again!! Lots of musical reversing of large truck very early!! Plus there had already been a large lorry delivery to the kitchens at 04:00!!
So as you can see quite a few bad points that I feel worth mentioning for this particular trip. I will definitely not accept 126 or any room near it in the future!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Stewarty A wonderful stay while visiting London.
We stayed for 3 nights while visiting London and friends. We had 3 children with us and the hotel were very accommodating. We stayed in a family room with a large comfy bed and sofa bed. We were quite close to the bar area but you wouldn't have known - very quiet and very relaxing. The staff were very friendly and the selection at breakfast was excellent. This our second year staying at this hotel and wouldn't hesitate next year.
