We booked afternoon tea for my friends special 80th birthday. We arranged to have the afternoon of and arrived for our treat. We were greeted at reception by 'We are closed for the weekend'. I said I had booked a table. They said they had called all their bookings to cancel as they decided with the weekend function they had... More

We recently stayed for a Friday and Saturday night at the hotel. The deal included breakfast each morning and a meal on the Saturday night. Upon arrival there was a mix up where the receptionist could not find both days of our booking, however this was just an administration problem and was quickly resolved. The hotel is split into two... More

We stayed here on February 22nd for my birthday. We stayed in the peacock suite which was beautiful with a verandah overlooking the river. Stunning views. The room itself was lovely and fantastically comfy bed! The staff throughout the hotel couldn't be more helpful. We had dinner in the restaurant and the food was very good. Can't wait to visit...

I booked Monkey Island for afternoon tea to celebrate a friend’s 80th birthday. When I booked the tea I specifically asked if I could have a nice area as it was a special birthday celebration. Walking into Monkey Island is quite impressive but then we were taken into the room for our afternoon tea and was most disappointed. We were... More

I spent a weekend with friends on Monkey Island a few weeks ago and LOVED it. From the minute you step on to the bridge you are walking into a different world, where peacocks wander the paths, the sound of the river lulls you to sleep and everything you could need is provided by the wonderfully thoughtful staff. The food... More

I am absolutely disgusted with this hotel, my husband booked this hotel for a surprise valentines trip. A week before hand my husband received an email from Monkey Island Hotel saying that "due to unforeseen circumstances" they were cancelling our stay. I have since read the latest reviews and seen that a guest hired the whole hotel for their friends... More

It's hard to believe this place is so close to London. Sitting in the garden with the peacocks and the river running by felt very serene. The staff were excellent, the rooms nice and clean and we had a wonderful weekend.

Took my wife here as part of Birthday celebrations. We were not disappointed. Right in the middle of the Thames with a foot bridge and free parking just by that footbridge. There are not many places that you go to where you can open the bedroom window and suddenly find that you are feeding peacocks

I recently spent a glorious weekend at this place. I loved it the 1st time - I loved it even more this time. It's an incredible unexpected paradise - a long tapered island floating in the Thames, and slightly floating in time, like a nugget of precious English history. I love walking across the footbridge, into another space; another era.... More
