This was our fifth function at the venue- Willow Suite and it still is our first choice for a venue for functions. No mean feet indeed considering I myself am from the hotel industry and consequently most guest are associated with the hotel industry. Everything went without a hitch right from booking the function to the actual function. The waiting... More

Stayed here one night on Business, Location is excellent with a fantastic Canal out the back with some nice pubs. Nice pub across the road too. Hotel a little run-down looking. First room smelled of strong paint or industrial cleaner and got a sore head with fumes within 5mins. Opening window didn't cure it apart from let flies come in... More

Went for lunch, I asked for a tomato juice with Worcester sauce to drink - no tomato juice. Then tried for apple juice, got a rather awful apple and mango juice drink which, to their credit, they took away and didn't charge for. Starter was very good, main course I opted for salmon - this was served with the skin... More

I have stayed here many times in the past and the hotel was tired and dated but always very comfortable. This time I was in one of the newly renovated rooms and was massively disappointed. They have obviously spent a lot of money with the upgrades but why oh why would anybody in their right mind put in a pull... More

Another enjoyable stay at The Watermill, would highly recommend this hotel to any one requiring a stay in this area. Close to London and motorway links to the rest of the United Kingdom and London's Airports.

The hotel provided suitable accommodation at a good price for my visit down south. The staff were all very friendly and the meals were good value and very tasty. A minor criticism would be that there is not enough tables to eat comfortably at in the bar area.

Overall a reasonably priced room for this location. Extremely helpful and efficient staff. Breakfast is very unsatisfactory though. Cramped dining area and poor quality ingredients makes this the only drawback.
