From the river, this looked like an idyllic place to stop for a Sunday Roast... Lovely riverside location with outside tables in a gorgeous, spacious setting. Never again! We sat outside in the sunshine. The waiter came and informed us we had to go inside to order food and drinks, but they would bring our order to us. My husband... More

I have stayed at this hotel several times on business. I gave it a very good rating - just... The rooms in the main building are slightly tired and can be noisy but are comfortable. The rooms in the annex (Clocktower) are far nicer for business travelers. There is good wireless access to the internet and the restaurant is decent.... More

We have been coming to Berkshire for a large number of years. However, this was the first time we decided to stay overnight at The Great House. We found every single member of staff very pleasant and accommodating. Check in was friendly and relaxed. We were escorted to our room and the facilities were explained to us. Dinner that evening...

I organised a family party for 25 people, at fairly short notice, and the staff were extremely helpful right from booking, with several iterations of people who might come, to setting up the private room and finding a screen for us, to serving throughout. They even posted on my nephew's mislaid phone. Dinner & breakfast were good too.

We stayed at the "Great House" for Valentines Day and chose the dinner, bed & breakfast package. Upon arrival we went to Reception and were greeted by a member of staff who gave us the key to our "Executive" room, he pointed in the general direction of the clock tower and did not offer any assistance with our cases -...

We did our twins christening here for 40 people and the staff could not have been more helpful and professional to make the day a great success. Food was good and everyone got exactly what was pre ordered- We had an "open" bar and the prices of wine and beer was very reasonable.

A variety of rooms, across a number of buildings. Some modern, some quirky. The quirky ones can have squeaky floorboards, uneven floors etc, so if you think this will bother you ask for a modern room (I like the old ones). Friendly staff, reception staff very accommodating - should have no problem getting the kind of room that you want,... More

Everyone has their own opinion on restaurants and staff service. If you visit the Great House you will not be disappointed. The staff are friendly and helpful and will go out of their way to be of help. The choice of food is excellent and served beautifully. The only thing that let's them down at times is portion control, otherwise... More

Stayed for one night in advance of a business meeting in Wokingham. Room comfortable and warm with complimentary sparkling water and nice toiletries. There was a wedding party in one of the restaurant rooms but the other was well staffed. The bar was a different matter - had almost to serve myself, but this was OK as the glass of... More
