Stayed for 2 nights. I booked a single room but was given a room with 2 beds and told I HAD to sleep in a certain one. Breakfast was quite good although when I asked for more juice I was given a hard time by the owner. I was also snapped at when coming down to eat my lunch saying... More

I am sorry you felt that we were strict over a number of items during your stay. Understandably, we do request that guests use one bed for a single payment. We are glad you enjoyed your breakfast. The juice was hand pressed by us the day before from our own apples and thus is a precious commodity. We give a... More

Yes I had a single room booked, I booked it on late rooms, it was meant to be a no deposit needed but the lady called awaking for a deposit. She also called the day before asking me to arrive after six pm. When I did arrive, I found the room had been double booked and she expected me to... More

We do apologise for this genuine double booking. Another guest turned up in the early afternoon, before the check in time for guests and a week earlier than he had booked for. A friend showed him to an empty room and the guest then left for the evening before the landlady returned. As his personal effects were too numerous to... More

Room advertised as triple. After booking was called and asked what time I was arriving. Unable to say so was told to guess, host unhappy about my travel times and vagaries therein. Room advertised as triple, consisted of 1 x double and 1 x single. Advised cost would increase if I wanted to sleep in double bed. Was asked what... More

Well, some people just do not recognise quality! No doubt the gentleman is not used to handmade organic bread and eggs laid by our own hens, freshly-made genuine espresso coffee and home-pressed apple juice. The offer of toast and home-made preserves was rejected. However, the next day, white sliced bread was deemed to be acceptable. My guests are given the... More

House is immaculately clean, the room I had was very spacious and pleasant. If you want a completely anonymous place to stay whereby nobody knows or cares how or where you are then this is probably not the place for you, it's kind of halfway between a standard b&b and living in someones house. I found the owner extremely friendly... More

We have just had a wonderful eighteen day stay, at Drake House Amersham, clean, large, comfortable, bright room with en-suite, was home from home... Each day started with a great English, cooked breakfast, with freshly laid eggs, these, were a real bonus, along with the home made jam, which my son devoured with glee, on his toast. We found a...

My time at Drake house was very frustrating. There were stringent rules which all boarders had to abide by, most of which were wholly unrealistic. The biggest problem was the severe lack of privacy. All the doors were fire doors. Yet everytime I returned to my room I found the doors held open with door stops which negated the safety... More

The room was clean, but that's about it. A long list of ridiculous rules you have to follow, for example maximum 3 min showers (yes, THREE minutes), and mind you - no eating in the room! The owner was eccentric (in a bad way), and simply impossible to deal with - don't count on any kind of cooperation. Needless to... More

Management response:

There is no rule regarding water usage but we advise, as do many establishments, sensible restraint simply so that at busy times there is enough hot water for everyone. As to being eccentric we are all different; beauty is in the eye of the beholder :) More
