The White Horse's 56 bedrooms make it an ideal hitching post. Each room comes complete with duck down and feather duvets, non-allergenic pillows, alongside timeless furnishings. A selection of comfy and spacious rooms are available, in addition to two decadent suites with separate lounge seating areas and one indulgent suite featuring an ornate bathtub and views across the historic high street. 

Set throughout the main building, as well as the adjacent Pickwick and Stable Blocks, each room pays tribute to the building’s unique role in Dorking’s history. Having once played host to Charles Dickens, who took up residence at the White Horse whilst writing the Pickwick Papers in the mid-19th century, you’re sure to be in good company!

Guests at The White Horse can enjoy access to the gym and pool at Dorking Sports Centre, located just five minutes-walk from the hotel.

Check in is from 3pm and check out is midday.
