My wife and I stayed for one night in a room overlooking the courtyard and about 30 yards from the Thames. The room was large, and warm with a lovely bathroom. It was very clean and fresh. Tea and coffee making facilities were available. From the minute we arrived the staff were welcoming, and friendly throughout. We had a coffee... More

We met some old friends here for dinner, it being mid way between our respective homes. Neither of us had been here before, but the reviews looked good, so why not?! We dined as non-residents. The hotel restaurant overlooks the river, with an attractive decking area for an aperitif or dining if it's warm. Inside, lanterns in the roof brighten... More

A quirky hotel on the banks of the River Thames. Our room was in the Ferryman's Cottage, just across the courtyard/car park from the restaurant. It was roomy, well equipped and comfortable. The bar in the main reataurant block was sparce but comfortable enough, but considering its location, I felt it should have had a cask ale available. The restaurant... More

We were 3 couples and we stayed in the three rooms in the Ferrymans cottage, which were warm and very comfortable. The restaurant is situated just a few meters from the Thames. The service we received was excellent, with a special mention to Francis who gave us excellent attention despite admitting that he was quite new to the B&W boathouse.... More

The accommodation in a separate cottage was splendid, we had the ground floor room....no 3, which had a shower, the other 2 first floor rooms had roll top baths with a hand held shower. Very homely feel to the room with many books and decorative items, but the best was REAL leaf tea with a proper tea pot, also fresh... More

We stayed just one night but wished it had been longer. The whole experience was a real pleasure. The location right on Thames led to having a couple of lovely walks admiring both the beautiful properties and the local wildfowl. Our room was delightful with everything there that you would wish for. The staff were very welcoming and very helpful... More

We stayed here for two nights in November. We stayed in room number 2 upstairs. Upon arrival it was clear that the heating in the room does not work.There was a convection radiator in the room but this is not the same as having proper heating. From other reviews it looks like this is an ongoing issue. The quality of... More
