Had nice warm weather for one night on business, the hotel beer garden along the Thames was a great idyllic spot. Enjoyed a standard double room at the front of the hotel (not Thames side or the lodges), overlooking a park, clean, well presented and reasonable size room for one night. Bathroom was clean. Lunch was well presented and no... More

We booked this hotel due to attending a wedding in the town centre for one night, staff are very helpful and friendly . The fabric of the building is very tired and needs work also the inside needs a bit of TLC. Due to insects we had to keep the windows closed and a fan is provided, due to our... More

We booked this hotel under a free gift experience voucher and were pleased we had - we wouldn't pay to stay there. We had paid £20 to upgrade to what we were told would be one of the "Executive rooms". However, when we arrived, we were given a tiny little room, which looked nothing like any of the photos we...

A great place to use as a base for the swan upping ceremony BUT the best feature was the car park. The room in the annexe was stifling hot and the fan provided was only capable of circulating hot air. Guests are advised not to open windows for fear of importing insects from the river therefore the room was unbearable,... More

This hotel has a stunning location right next to the Thames and is itself a unique old building - I found the staff to be generally very attentive, friendly and helpful. However I found the food to be really expensive and not really that special - I cant accept that charging 13 Pounds for a basic hamburger - eaten in... More

Stayed here in June, the hotel has great views over the Thames. The room was spacious & clean. We ate in the restaurant, the food was very good and there was a good choice in the menu. There were tables and chairs outside overlooking the river so we sat and had a glass of wine there before dinner. Breakfast was... More

I read all the reviews already posted before booking this hotel, and found many of them concerning re cleanliness and the condition of the fabric of the building, however the location was ideal for the event we were attending and there are not many alternatives in the area.
