Positive Reviews

Excellent location.

The inn is well-located in the pretty town of Ripley, overlooking Wisley Gardens which make for a great day trip. The inn is close to Ripley’s transport links which make the busy shopping town of Guildford accessible.

Lovely bedrooms.

Guests report that both the deluxe rooms and the more contemporary Ripley Wing rooms are lovely. The deluxe rooms offer character and charm and something a little different, while the standard rooms are comfortable, warm, quiet and clean.

An ideal wedding venue.

A number of guests who have attended weddings at the inn comment on what an ideal wedding venue it is. The hotel has the capacity to host weddings of all sizes, and there is more than enough parking for visitors.

Negative Reviews

Seems to be understaffed.

A few reviews suggest that the restaurant and bar area seemed understaffed, particularly when other private functions were going on. A number of guests reported having to wait at the bar before having to go and find someone to serve them.

Expensive bar.

A number of guests comment on the price of food and drink, suggesting that its quality is not quite worth the price. Guests comment on expensive drinks, in particular.

Hit and miss food.

Reviews on the food itself are inconsistent, with some reviews suggesting excellent quality, while others state that food is lacking and seemingly processed and not freshly prepared.
