We should have been staying three nights primarily to visit the Hampton Court Flower show. We booked through Late Rooms but when we arrived our booking wasn't on their system. They only had a room for that night. They tried to find us some other local accommodation but everywhere was booked solid. So not a good start. Nevertheless the hotel... More

Great hotel/pub. Good tasty food, good staff, good room. Position for visiting Hampton Court Palace which is well worth a visit is brilliant! Bang next door to Lionsgate with parking outside the pub. Would recommend a stay!

Our room service was excellent. However after climbing 26 stairs and going through numerous doors I was a very exhausted - elderly lady, The bath had no slip mat and was difficult to get in and out. The room and bed was spotless. The staff very pleasant. We stayed for one dinner, not impressed. Breakfast - The bread was awful... More

My husband and I booked this hotel without really reading the previous reviews carefully. That was a mistake. The hotel is very old and quaint and the location for The Hampton Court Festival is amazing. The hotel backs onto the maze. However that is the only plus that I could find. We requested a quiet room with extra size double... More

This is one of the dirtiest, stickiest hotels I have stayed in. And a complete rip off at £170 for a night Filthy common areas, with plaster hanging off the walls and a badly spelt notice blaming the rain!!!! an awful dingy room, filthy windows , mould in shower, a bathroom mirror you have to crouch down to see yourself...

Visited this hotel which is right by The Lion Gate into Hampton Court Palace, in fact the rear of the hotel is in the grounds and overlooks the famous maze. Rooms comfortable and clean. A bit creaky but then it is old. The reception was good and we were very pleasantly welcomed and shown to our room. All information about... More

My company paid £60 for a budget room:described as small.........Where to start, it was a lovely evening when I turned up, bar staff were serving customers at... More

Single night stay (thank fully) on a quick trip to pick up some stuff in Kingston. Rooms was small but that can be accepted as part of the architecture in these old Inns. What isn't is teh very tired mattress and paper peeling off the bedroom walls! We had to be on the road early the next day and were... More

It looks great from the pictures, and the location is faultless, next to Hampton Court Palace and opposite Bushy Park. But this is a classic case of a hotel which is taking advantage of location and likely customer base of once in a lifetime visitors not to provide an acceptable standard of accommodation. I paid £130 for my supposed double... More

Stayed for the night after a local friend's party. Room was very small, boxlike and didn't even have a cupboard - just a hook on the wall with some 'token' hangers. Bedside tables had some small drawers but not big enough for much. No air-conditioning so very hot, window could open but the noise from the road was too much.... More
