Nice hotel but no one said we had to pre book parking but luckily we found somewhere
Wanted £17 per person for a cooked breakfast which was politely declined
Holiday Season Accomodation
Despite an upgrade on arrival to an executive room, the room was tight for space, the double bed too small both length ways and width ways and suffered from a noisy fan outside.
We ate in the bar on the evening of our arrival and thought the burgers were overpriced for what they were, particularly the additional £2 paid to add what turned out to be one small slice of mushroom.
Get the basics right!
Only need the basics right but not great.
Only one towel in room. Small bathroom with shelf above toilet but very cramped. Shower a dribble.
Bed was very comfy.
only let down by the smallness of the room and the noisy road outside.
Pleasant and comfortable but very noisy
A pleasant, comfortable room.
Clean and well presented. Pleasant welcome at reception. However the landing was plagued by a swarm of very noisy and drunk young people between 2 and 4 am. Running around, speaking loudly in the corridor, even shouting, banging doors and pounding up and down the stairs. The hotel staff seemed oblivious and took no action, but were apologetic afterwards.
Great hotel but avoid room 46
The hotel was very convenient for the town with an attractive bar and outside seating.
However our Room 46 was in the basement beneath reception. It was dark with no view and we were woken at 6am by ?luggage. being wheeled over the skylight. Definitely not worth the money!
Elegent old-style hotel with all the modern facilities.
I needed to stay 1 night in Guildford and the Mandolay seemed to be the best choice I could find at a reasonable price.
The room (and the hotel in general) wasn't too hot, which is a problem I find in many UK hotels in the Summer. The room was rather small, but obviously restricted by the original building layout itself - looked like the en-suite was built inside what would have been a larger room originally of the late Victorian / Edwardian building. Great view from the window, in that it was impossible to catch even a glimpse of Guildford Cathedral - one of the ugliest constructions in the South of England which is responsible for spoiling the vista from almost every point in this, otherwise delightful, city.
clean, very pleasant room.
one night stay
Executive room on ground floor.
Quiet and roomy for one. Wet room bathroom excellent although when I returned from breakfast the shower drain was gurgling and the smell of drain water was quite strong. Had to wait nearly ten minutes at reception on arrival as the receptionist was on the phone all that time to a potential customer. My room had no remote for the TV but I asked at reception and one was brought within ten minutes.
The Mandolay Hotel
Very high standard of decor the room was of a good size and had everything you needed.
The hotel staff were very polite and exceptionally well presented. We arrived quite late but there was bar food available which again was of a high standard, the only negative was that the food was a little expensive. We had a slight issue with the parking as I hadn't realised that you had to reserve a space, but the receptionist knew where to direct us to for nearby parking. However we eventually managed to get a space at the front of the hotel - ensure you reserve parking at time of booking.
