We had a hot air balloon ride arranged for the following morning, So this was to be the perfect weekend. OH what a mistake that was. On arrival we were told they had a wedding on, (not told this...

We booked a standard room online, but when we arrived we had been upgraded to the Duke of Marlborough room because the hotel was pretty empty that night. It was a marvelous, enormous room with a great view of the river. The hotel doesn't get five stars because the basin in the bathroom was pretty much non-functional. We didn't complain... More

I booked a standard double room for me and my partner, and to our surprise the receptionist upgrade our room to a four poster bed with a river view, its a nice gesture from them and a surprise for my partner since its our anniversary. The room is splendid, too much character, since the hotel is build during 16th century,... More

Our son's wedding reception was recently held here and most family and friends stayed at the hotel, including a large Irish contingent. Our overall experience was good, but one member of staff on reception (a very young lady) needs some serious training in customer service - she was surly and everything was too much trouble. The bar staff, however, and... More

Stayed here last night, Room 405 on courtyard. Room stank of air freshened, bathroom extractor fan didn't work, small dank room. Bathroom was filthy too. One electric socket didn't work, another was taped up. Very cold to start, ie we froze getting ready for party. Heating came on at 9pm, full blast, and stayed on all night making room insufferably...

I made a reservation over the phone for a one night stay. When I checked in, they could not find my reservation. They had rooms available so they gave me a room key, charged me for the room and parking (had to be paid upfront). Later I reviewed my bank statement and saw I was charged twice on the day... More

We held our wedding there and the attention to detail was amazing. When some of our guest did not like the starter they were offered another choice with hesitation at no extra cost. The wedding planner looked after us all day and night long nothing was to much trouble. Everyone felt at ease throughout the day and the wedding pictures... More

I entertained some Germans for 1 night in this hotel. Total number of 9 people with a conference and private dinner. The meeting room is very nice and reflects the ambience of this very old hotel. A nice view over the Thames makes business so much easier. The same room was transformed after the meeting into a private dining room... More
