Booked this hotel as a surprise for my boyfriend's birthday as we were having dinner at the Hinds Head. The receptionist when I booked on the phone described room 26 as the 'Peacock Suite' at £150 per night - it sounded an amazing deal and I was completely mislead. I shared with him that this was a surprise for my... More

The hotel was recommended to me by a colleague who had attended a wedding here, and I must say that the location is splendid. Not much can top a cold beer on the bank of the Thames with peacocks and rabbits around you. The downside (not very large, though) is that the rooms are tired, quaint and cosy, but tired... More

We attended a wedding here 26th July. The grounds are absolutely stunning and it's so peaceful, even peacocks roaming about. We had a room in the hotel and thought it was lovely with a modern bathroom and views out on to the grounds. The only thing I felt let it down a bit was the food could have been better... More

We've had a disappointing lunch at the Monkey Island Hotel: actually the food was OK but the ambience was lacking and the buildings, fixtures and fittings need MAJOR TLC! It's a pity because the position on the Thames is lovely. Service and value for money was acceptable.

When you arrive you think wow. Peacocks wandering around the Thames lapping at the edge of the lawn. Unfortunately it all goes wrong after that! The décor is very tired and needs updating. Little things missing like a bottle of water in the room, even though it was hot. Then there was no hot water in the evening or the... More

I went last month for a wedding reception and dinner, and to be honest I was looking forward to be there, as I heard lots of good things about the hotel, first impression was Wow how you pass the bridge they have a beautiful garden where they hold the canapé reception, and the peacocks was a great entertainment for kids...

Going to Monkey Island is like visiting Narnia. Stepping into another world. The rooms and food are excellent - somebody clearly takes a lot of care to make the visitors have a lovely experience. The staff are exceptionally kind and caring - all of our needs were met. It's such a magical place - It was like being in a... More

Having held our wedding reception here, a few years ago, we were recently very disappointed when we went for Sunday Lunch - 6 July. Not only has the menu changed from a carvery to a limited menu-based offer, but it was very average. The meal was served fully plated, no separate or extra vegetables. My husband asked for 2 more...
