From our guests
My wife and I attended your Valentines Day dinner, and we also stayed the night. I should like to congratulate your head chef and his team on the quite exqusite food that was served. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed each and every dish. My wife, a vegetarian, was particularly impressed with the vegetarian main course. She has become used to the vegetarian option so often being an after thought on most menus simply shoved in to placate the veggies!. Thus she was very impressed at the quality and flavours in her dish which had clearly been given the same thought and effort as every other dish.
I chose the beef as the main. So often beef I've tried is tough no matter how little or how much it's been cooked! This beef was simply amazing. It fell apart as it was cut and melted in the mouth. Beautifully cooked with real flavour. The food is excellent throughout your hotel, and this is a major feature for us, as so often the food can be rather average. Even your breakfast is excellent! You'd be amazed how many hotels, including 5 star hotels, cook their scrambled egg in the microwave! You do it properly, and it tastes great accordingly and isn't all dried out!
Our entire stay was thoroughly pleasant, from utilising your lovely swimming pool and jacuzzi through to the dinner and then breakfast in the morning. Our congratulations to you all. Please do pass our thanks on to your head chef, in particular. We look forward to staying with you again soon.
(Valentine's Stay, 2013)
Can I just convey my thanks to you all at the Felbridge for a very enjoyable stay at your lovely hotel. Everything was perfect - lovely room, bathroom toiletries of a quality actually worth using, and a wonderful breakfast choice. Can I particularly mention Tony on reception, whose greeting on my arrival was genuinely friendly and not the standard "branded" patter. Being a single female traveller, it made me feel immediately comfortable and valued.I will be using your hotel again, and would definitely recommended it.
(Overnight stay, January 2013)
I just wanted to let you know what a fantastic evening we all had, everyone enjoyed it so much and all the little touches, dancers, singers and casino made it that extra bit special. A big thank u to you personally and all the staff at the hotel from everyone in our group.
(James Bond Christmas Party Night, December 2012)
To the events and organisation team. I find myself doing something that I have never done before “writing a letter of praise” I must congratulate you on one of the most fabulous evenings out we have ever had! The Rat Pack show was phenomenal it ticked every box and more. I at one point, went to ask if they could possibly sing my wife’s favourite song “of course sir “ 2 songs later “Frank” ? crooned it out FULL MARKS. The service, food and ambience was first class WELL DONE TO YOU ALL.
(Rat Pack, Nov 12)
Following a wonderful celebration last year for our Ruby Wedding Anniversary I could think of no better place than this to celebrate reaching 60 !! We took the family for a weekend break and had six friends to join us for private dinning in The Willow Suitw on the Saturday evening. From the moment that we arrived the staff could not do enough for us and thanks go to Jo and Alice on reception for ensuring that we had all we needed.
Our suite was lovely although the weather was not warm enough for us to use the balcony but it was all spotlessly clean with bathrobes, slippers and very nice toilitries. I must also thank Ella our banquetting manager for all her hard work on the saturday evening along with Sam and Matt who ran the bar for us, The table was amazing and they had pulled out all the stops to make the evening so very special not forgetting the wonderful food which everyone loved.
We cant thank Carl (The Deputy General Manager) and Skyla (Events Coordinator) enough for putting it all together for us even to the point of bringing in my husbands favourite tipple "Taliskers" for him to make the evening complete. This hotel not only offers all it claims to but the staff go that extra mile to give the personnal touch that you dont get with a big hotel chain At the end of the weekend nobody wanted to go home as we as a family had all enjoyed our stay so very much and will be looking for another celebration to bring us back in the not too distant future.
(Hotel Stay, October 2012)
What's not to like?! 2 good restaurants, spa facilities, clean and well furnished room with a comfy bed, close to the airport and a tidy (but small) gym. I'd definitely recommend, and will be staying again when flying from Gatwick.
(Hotel Stay, October 2012)
We chose the Felbridge to stay at the night before our holiday leaving from Gatwick... It was just right for us, nice rooms, friendly service,good quality, good food, and a wonderfull relax in the spa before diner...What better way to start your holiday? We also parked the car there for nine days included in the price, and they organized a 1st class drop off and pick up service too...all very well organised. Definately will be using this service next time....fact.
(Hotel Stay, October 2012)
Very nice, modern comfy rooms. Great location. 8 minuets to the train station to go into London (40 min. ride). Very good choices for breakfast. Good food and bar. Very helpful and friendly staff. I will absolutely go back for a stay here.
(Hotel Stay, October 2012)
Thank you very much for your help in getting our rooms organised. The weekend went really well and it helps that we have a great hotel to stay in with lovely staff. Here’s to next year!
(Conference and Hotel Stay, October 2012)
I just wanted to let you know that we had a fantastic weekend at the Felbridge. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and were very accommodating to all of our requests ( we had quite a few!) The bride loved every minute and definitely had a hen to remember! Thank you so much and to all the other staff there that made it so lovely and memorable. Have already been recommending to you!
(Wedding, October 2012)
Hello, firstly can I just say that we had a wonderful stay with you on the 1st of September prior to our holiday. Everything was superb and we really enjoyed our brief stay. If you have a mailing list with offers etc then please add me to it!!!
We would love to stay with you again and for a longer period whereby we can enjoy the spa etc fully. Secondly, the pickup service to and from the hotel is also commended. They were on time (amazing), polite and efficient. A really good service that compliments your hotel.
Lastly, can you tell me where do you buy your pillows from - we thought they were fab and would be keen to buy some for home - thank you.
Kind regards and many thanks for all your kind assistance. We will be recommending you to friends and family. A lovely treat before your holiday away from the usual airport hotels.
Hotel Stay, September 2012.
Dear Ami, We all just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and your entire team who helped to make our day so amazing. It was truely magical down to every small detail. So many guests commented that it was 'the best wedding they'd ever been to!!
(Wedding, June 2011)
Now the dust has settled and we are getting into our married lives I just wanted to take a minute to say THANK YOU!
Thank you to you and your team at the Felbridge for all of the preparation and the attention to detail on the lead up and the day of our weeding.
We had an amazing wedding day with everything going to how we planned it. The trio suit look stunning I don't think I could have asked for anything more, even the weather held for us. We have had so many compliments about our wedding especially about the food, service, the hotel and evening disco. I don't think the dance floor was empty for the whole night.
On a personal note both Kenny and I enjoyed meeting and planning our wedding with you. You made our lives very easy with your friendly personality, organisational skills and attention to detail throughout. We would happily recommend you and the Felbridge to our family and friends.
(Wedding, June 2012)
I certainly appreciated the break & the service at the hotel was exemplary. The Anise restaurant menu was beautiful & we will return. I would always be interested in any offers, spa breaks etc that the hotel has to offer, so please do add me to your mailing list.
(Hotel Stay, July 2012)
Just wanted to say thank you so much we had the most wonderful day ever. Your staff were so professional and polite. Both our families and all our friends could not stop saying what a fantastic time they were all having and how beautiful the reception room and the hotel was. They all loved the food as well!!!!! Thank you for making my daughter and son in laws day a wonderful memory.
(Wedding, July 2011)
Just a quick note to say thank you for your help in organising our trip this weekend. The service and quality of all aspects of the hotel were excellent and many of our guests commented on how good the venue was. Thank you to all the staff who helped make our stay such fun.
If we are ever in your area again we will certainly come back.
(Hotel Break, July 2011)
I just wanted to take the time to thank you sincerely for arranging our stay at The Felbridge; from the room to the dinner to the spa arrangements, on the 9th July Saturday.
The hotel staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them for any of our requests. The room was immaculate and exceeded our expectations. The spa was a memorable experience and we thoroughly enjoyed the treatments. The heated treatment beds were a treat! Our evening meal at The Bay Tree restaurant was very exquisite with an impressive dessert menu!
Your customer service to our booking felt very personal right from the booking stage, beginning to end. You are a credit to your team and would like to have met you in person; you made our weekend very special. We both lead very busy lives and to be able to switch off for the weekend at The Felbridge was the perfect location and choice.
We would highly recommend this hotel to our family and friends and hopefully like to come back in the near future to relive the wonderful weekend we had.
Please keep us updated for any special weekend offers for future reference and would like to be added to the mailing list for your hotel.
(Hotel Stay, July 2011)
I've just spent a fabulous weekend at your hotel (4th June) and enjoyed the use of your Spa, Restaurant, pool etc. I was lucky enough to use my Groupon voucher which I purchased in May, I could kick myself as I wish I'd purchased more than the one voucher now as I know friends of mine would absolutely love it!
(Hotel stay, June 2011)
Bedrooms were very clean; staff were all polite and helpful special thanks to Tony on Reception.
(Anniversary Party, May 2011)
Please kindly let Tony know we had a VERY ENJOYABLE stay at the Felbridge last Friday / Saturday.
We were very impressed with the Hotel. The Restaurant is Superb, Felbridge staff are Excellent - charming and courteous. We have recommended the Felbridge to many colleagues within the Media. Many thanks - and we look forward to seeing you again soon.
(Hotel stay, February 2011)
We so enjoyed our stay at the Felbridge. Everyone was just so friendly and helpful which just helped us relax even more into our stay. Being real foodies we had two fantastic meals in the restaurants (I haven't stopped going on about the mojito dessert since!
I wondered if you would be able to send me a copy of the Valentine meal menu - we'd really like to keep it as a souvenir and I didn't take a copy at the time.
Thank you again for your help and to everyone who made our stay everything we hoped it would be :-)
(Hotel Break, February 2011)
Just to say a huge thank you to all your staff for making our stay on the 22/01/2011 fantastic. This is the second time we have stayed with you and yet again your staff are the most helpful and friendly nothing is ever too much trouble.
A special thanks to the staff in the Baytree Restaurant for the service and going out of their way to get us the extras we asked for nothing was to much trouble. I have now realised why your hotel has won so many awards for the food . All I can say the food is stunning and we cannot wait to come back again.
Again thanks hope to be back soon.
(Hotel Break, January 2011)
I am writing to extend my thanks to you, for all your efforts in organising my New Years/Birthday break. We had a wonderful time, and was even informed our room had been upgraded. We dined in Anise and "Happy Birthday" was written on my dessert! As ever, look forward to our next stay.
With warmest regards best wishes for 2011, Samantha.
(Hotel Break, December 2010)
I spent a night at your hotel last night 1/12/2010 due to my flight from Gatwick airport being cancelled and I just wanted to say thank you to all the staff I encountered during my stay for being so helpful during a stressful day for me.
Room booking, December 2010
We had a really great time at the weekend - everyone at the hotel was really helpful and made our stay very easy and pleasant. Many thanks to you and everyone who helped make it a really enjoyable weekend.
(Group Spa Booking, November 2010)

(Spa Weekend, November 2010)
I hope your thank you card / gift made it to you safely!! Just some feedback after a wonderful weekend at The Felbridge.
Check In: Reception staff ... very friendly and professional too, especially Sarah, and for being a Spurs fan too!! Also, the Duty Manager, Carl, made himself known and was very helpful over the weekend, when required. Our suite was lovely.
The Bay Tree Restaurant: Everyone was very impressed with the choice and quality of breakfast on both mornings. The Anise Restaurant: Our fun quiz went down well in private room, and a tasty lunch too. The Chakra Spa: The facilities and treatments were of top quality and both appreciated by all. The Willow Suite was a great comfortable and classy venue for a very tasty dinner. Our friends were very complimentary about the food all the staff were very professional too. The QUBE Bar, the Bar Staff were very friendly and professional too.
The overall experience was a wonderful one, all our friends were impressed with the hotel, service and staff. Please pass on my sincere thanks to all.
(Group booking, November 2010)
My 70th birthday occasion last Saturday has now come and gone; it was a truly memorable occasion for me and all my family.
Thank you so much for all the organisation of the dinner etc. We all thoroughly enjoyed it within the beautiful surrounds of the hotel. The staff were all very professional and polite and it could not have gone more smoothly. Our `fine dining` experience in the Anise was met by all my group with delight (we have a qualified chef amongst us and another family member who `fines dines` quite a lot and both were very impressed) also thank you for the table settings with the individual menus on them.
My thanks again Bridget - you did a good job for us.
(Birthday Party, October 2010)
We would love to stay at the Felbridge again and hope to do so soon. The Willow Suite was fab. Thanks for all you did for us.
(Conference October 2010)
I would just like to say a big thank you from all of us for the wonderful sales conference which we recently held with you. Everything went smoothly, the arrangements we had agreed on prior the event were met, the staff were constantly checking everything was as it should be, leaving me relaxed and free to enjoy the for meeting myself! Even when our agenda and room requirements changed (which was on the day!) the events staff made every effort to accommodate my requirements in a very quick and efficient way. The friendliness and attentiveness of the staff exceeded what I would usually expect from the events staff at a hotel. I am a great believer that the staff at a hotel can really make or break a meeting, and The Felbridge staff really made it for all of us.
Also, please give our compliments to the chef as the lunch was truly delicious and enjoyed by all. I would definitely use the Felbridge again for a conference meeting and I look forward to seeing you all again at our Christmas party which we are holding with you.
(Conference, August 2010)
Dear Bridget, I stayed at your hotel on Wednesday night with my daughter and her friend - they had such a lovely time in your pool! Every member of staff that we met was helpful and charming, particularly on the front desk and I wanted to write and thank you and all the staff for the unexpectedly wonderful evening that we spent at the Felbridge Hotel, thank you!
(Overnight stay, August 2010)
Just wanted to thank Sam, Amy and Leah in the Spa for a very enjoyable Spa Day. Myself, Mum and sisters had a fantastic day and had some of the best spa treatments we've ever had. Thank you.
(Spa Day, June 2010)
I just wanted to send an email and thank you and The Felbridge Hotel for the great night at The Variety Evening last Friday. We had a wonderful time. The food was gorgeous as always, the entertainment was very good, particularly the opera singer - wow and the DJ worked the guests brilliantly ensuring everyone danced the night away. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and can't wait to attend another event soon. Many thanks again.
(Variety Night Hotel Event June 2010)
Now that we have had a little time to catch our breath, I write to thank you, for all your help and organisation in ensuring the wedding day was a special occasion. We looked at several potential venues before selected The Felbridge Hotel and Spa and I‘m pleased to say that you proved to be the correct choice.
From the very first meeting trough to our departure we have been looked after in a very professional manner. Everything was planned down to the very last detail, family and friends who attended the wedding have all either written or phoned to say how much they enjoyed the day, the venue, the food and service. Some even said that this had been the best wedding they have ever attended.
Would you please pass our thanks to all the staff for making the day so very special. It was not a simple case of just doing ‘a job' but going that extra mile, nothing was too much trouble and everyone was so helpful and attentive at all times.
Once again our grateful thanks to everyone involved and especially to you for all your hard work and contribution and in overseeing the wedding. I would say to anyone considering a wedding venue then look no further than the Felbridge Hotel and Spa, which I couldn't recommend highly enough.
(Wedding May 2010)
As we discussed during our meetings, last week was a very important time for our company and to ensure our attendees felt well looked after and valued we needed you and your team to be on their "A" game all the time.
I can truly say that not only did you live up to your commitment to deliver this level of performance you more than exceeded it.
From the attentiveness of the staff, to the quality of the food, to the flexibility and responsiveness of all your people to our needs and I suspect at times demands you delivered to an exceptionally high standard.
The feedback from the team and our people has been consistently good which ensured everyone was focused on the meeting which was great. I was just disappointed I couldn't find time to enjoy your excellent spa, perhaps next time!
Please pass on my sincerest thanks and gratitude to all of the team for a job well done.
Very best regards
(Serco Conference May 2010)
I would like to say a big thank you for everything. Everyone really enjoyed their stay and were very impressed with the hotel and loved the food which when you have so many fashion people this is not an easy task. Usually you get someone complaining about something so this was a first for me. Everyone was very happy.
(Group Stay, May 2010)
My friends and I visited your hotel for the first time on Sunday 2nd May 2010. We had the most wonderful time, the spa was extremely relaxing, especially for myself and my friend as we are both heavily pregnant. We will all be back once we have had our babies!
(Spa Day, May, 2010)
We just wanted you to know that our group spent a very happy couple of days at the Felbridge. Everyone thought that the comfort, food and service were excellent. Thank you for your help in the arrangements.
(Group Booking, 2010)
Just a few lines to say thank you to all the staff at the Felbridge Hotel who made our family weekend away a relaxing and very enjoyable experience. Dorota, Skyla and Claudia all stood out as being both friendly, helpful and professional....they are a real credit to your team. All of the staff are to be complimented on their professionalism and attitude. We were in a party of 8, including two very small children, which obviously can result in additional requests such as high-chairs etc. Whenever we requested such items the request was dealt quickly and without fuss.
One of the cleaners who saw us carrying our bags down to reception as we were leaving (we didn't ring down for the porter) insisted on helping us carry the bags. The restaurant food was lovely; over the course of the weekend we had breakfast, lunch and dinner and we saw consistently high standards of service at all times. Our suites were a great choice; spacious, clean and well appointed. The girls all loved their spa treatments and the general ambience of the hotel is a relaxing retreat in which to unwind and enjoy. All in all we didn't have one single negative comment for the hotel. As you know this being a special weekend (our mum's 60th) for the family I was slightly apprehensive that everything should go well; I needn't have worried as the entire weekend was perfect.
Please pass on our thanks to ALL of the staff including the Chakra Spa, they all work very hard and it didn't go unnoticed. We will be back!
(Family weekend stay, March 2009)
I am writing to thank you for helping to make our Conference such a success. George King and our Managing Director were most impressed with your facilities and the refreshments and lunch were excellent, served by friendly staff.
We would certainly consider using The Felbridge again for any of our future events.
(Conference, February 2010)
I just had to write a short note of appreciation to you and all the staff at The Felbridge Hotel and Spa. The wedding went like clockwork, the organisation was faultless, the food superb and the staff very attentive. It's extremely rare these days to come across a hotel whose standards of service are truly excellent. Many, many thanks.
(Wedding, February 2010)
I have been meaning to email you and thank you for your help and let you know how well the evening went on Saturday 6th Feb. Your staff were all very efficient and helpful. The food was also very good. Once again thanks for your help and hope to be in contact again in the future.
(Dinner Dance, February 2010)
We stayed at your hotel last weekend, and on behalf of all my party I would like to thank all the staff for looking after us in such a polite and efficient way. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and were most impressed by the high standards in all areas. Keep up the good work!
Our Christmas party went very well on Friday, and I have had nothing but praise from all those who attended. The service was very good and efficient, the food was delicious, and the Trio Suite perfect for our needs. Please pass on particular thanks to Marta and her team who looked after us so well.
We look forward to working with you in 2010, and I am sure there will be a repeat booking for our Xmas 2010 party!
