Was at the hotel for a training course. Truly first class facilities. The food was absolutely stellar. Lunch offerings were glorious, variety was outstanding. The hotel seems incredibly over-staffed; that said, you can always get service.

A very good buffet enjoyed as non residents of the hotel. The setting is stunning, on the banks of the Thames by a lock. It is difficult to be critical of the food available. Presentation was first class leaving you wanting to sample everything on offer. Simply impossible. There is an overwhelming choice of not just starters but mains and... More

This large hotel on the outskirts of Staines and Egham is very near to the Magna Carter site. Lovely grounds on the river and the rooms are spacious and clean. Wonderful shower. The hotel has a spa and three different restaraunts, the best being the buffet, which at £30 per head, sounds expensive, but you can pick your meat, fish... More

We stayed at the runnymede foe one night with our two kids who were three snd one just for a break. It's was great from the start. The reception was very welcoming with a soft toy duck given to each of the kids. The room was good size, easily taking the extra bed and cot. The bed for our 3... More

Stayed here on business for two day conference. On arrival early morning a room was actually ready and allocated to me I was impressed with that check in reception service. The room itself was riverside and had a lovely view of the river, and a fun children's play area to the left. There was a net curtain to block the... More

However we were directed to a lovely oval table with a long sofa on one side and comfortable chairs on the other....Carole and... More

I was persuaded by previous reviews to book a garden view room. Ooops, wrong. Just outside was a giant inflatable jousting ring complete with noisey blower !! Garden view was pointless as rooms do not have net curtains so you have to keep your own closed. I also booked a room with a balcony – sounded nice. Wrong. It was... More

Thank you for your review. I am pleased that the team here at the hotel were excellent and friendly and you found the restaurant very good for both dinner and breakfast. I am, however, disappointed that you did not enjoy the facilities in the room and I have asked the Head Housekeeper to investigate your comments regarding the Bathrobes, face... More

Stayed overnight at the Runnymede as we were attending a party. There was a warm welcome. Our room was somewhat compact but had been refurbished. When asked if all was okay we did ask if there was a larger room available. There was but it was in the further part of the hotel so we declined. We had tea on... More

We chose Runnymede Spa for a morning of treatments before going on holiday. Really pleased with our choice. My therapist, Hannah, worked her magic giving me an unbelievable facial and a real knot-releasinging massage. Plus a lovely pedicure and I walked out of the spa feeling like a new person. Yes, I would most definitely recommend her both for her... More
