This riverside hotel was a favourite spot for a drink or meal after a walk along the Thames. Now that I have moved away from the area, and after a fantastic refurbishment of the old building, I stay here fairly frequently on business. The restaurant and rooms are both modern and stylish, the food and service are fantastic. I don't... More

We were here for a weekend get together with friends. The hotel aspect of the stay was good. Even the standard rooms were large, they were well decorated - clean and new feeling - comfortable beds, new bedding, new carpet and fluffy towels. The toiletries were just "OK" but that's not really what we should judge a hotel on, is... More

From the extremely friendly and informative welcome to the fabulous, huge, stylish and comfortable room, the delicious food and drink in the bar/restaurant and the lovely setting right on the Thames we could not fault the Great House. The star of the show however is the bathroom with a fantastic walk in shower with amazing water pressure, two sinks, loads... More

Had yet another great two night stay with a visit to the Mill at Sonning Theatre in the middle. Refurbishments are lovely, especially the new bar area and restaurant. Rooms very comfortable as usual. Looking forward to going again next year.

Had a great overnight stay, bedroom was huge, very nicely furnished and warm. Plenty of bedding, we were too hot in the night even with the heating down. Tea, coffee and milk, shampoos etc in the bathroom. We placed our order for breakfast, lovely menu, plenty of choice, but the odd thing was that everything came at once. I had... More

Had a lovely night at the Great House, I mention a few niggles above - 1) our shower overflowed due to a hairball (easily cleared, but still....) and the best water pressure I think I've ever experienced anywhere! Although the design of the shower lends to overflowing and clearly the water damage in the bathroom indicates this is a regular... More

We stayed here on New Year's Eve and were generally very satisfied with the accommodation and service. Parts of the hotel have recently been refurbished in a pleading, if neutral, sort of way. One or two aspects need a bit of attention: the housekeeping could do with a bit more attention but slight problems with our room were dealt with... More

We stayed overnight one weekend and found the room extremely comfortable. Adequate parking and a really varied choice in the restaurant over breakfast. We found reception rather brusque with no flexibility - not even allowing a 30 minute delay to check-out on a Sunday (HAS to be by 11am) to let us finish breakfast. However, overall we were extremely happy... More
