Spent a lovely evening here.really quirky hotel room, clean and really tastefully decorated and nice touch to have real milk in a mini bottle for our tea in the fridge in the room -not those plastic tubs of UHT. An amazing bathroom-best bath ever -really big so my big h7sband could really relax in it.Especially good for my tired feet.the... More

I booked this hotel as I had a meeting nearby. It was reasonably priced so wasn't sure what I was going to get. I was pleasantly surprised as the rooms were delightful with a roll top bath and separate shower and the best surprise was that the supplied Temple Spa toileteries. The rooms are all different but the attention to... More

I stay in quite a lot of reasonable hotels on business trips, not particularly fancy but not budget. Stayed at this hotel for a couple of days recently, and I thought that it was one of the nicest I'd been to for quite a while, mostly because they had really thought through the details that make a hotel feel great...

Stayed here for 1 night while visiting the area. The hotel was really nice, good decor and provisions in the room and it was comfortable and clean. Had dinner in the restaurant which was really tastey and breakfast the next day all really good. The staff were friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this hotel and would definitely stay... More

We were booked into this hotel for my brothers wedding. A big imposing building with a very quirky feel. It has recently been modernised and looks fresh. Our room was on the second floor number 10, Thatcher room, a comfortable double bed and an extra large bathroom, the wallpaper was an insect repeated all over. The decor was nice and... More

We stayed only one night during our Thames Path walk. The building was obviously very old but had been nicely and recently renovated. We were greeted in a prompt and friendly manner and helped with our bag which had been forwarded on. Although our room, number 3, was right overlooking the busy road, I was pleasantly surprised to fing the... More

Just had a lovely two night break at The Crown and Thistle. It was a bit of a struggle trying to find the car park. We phoned reception in the end and were guided to the car park which was situated at the back of the hotel. It has a different postcode to the actual hotel. The hotel has a... More

This historic inn was built in 1610, remodeled in 2013 and is comfortable and modern today. I stayed one night during a hike down the Thames Path in late March 2015, and it was a welcome sanctuary after a day out in the raw English weather. My room (No. 19-Stroudwater) was spacious, cozy and very clean. It overlooked the road... More

Very pleasant stay. Staff all good, room lovely, food excellent. The refurb. on the 1600s coaching inn and its out buildings has been very well done, you get a real sense of the history of the site whilst having all modern facilities. There is a real buzz about the place. You do need to be good with stairs, steps and... More
