Rently stayed at last minute Beautiful setting next to the Thames good grounds and parking Friendly staff ungraded on arrival but only average room ordinary double bed one bedside light only toileteries minimal. Good evening meal well presented attentive staff limited menu. Breakfast chaotic and poor poor staff at breakfast hotel full of wedding guest and a little pushed out.

Recently booked a last minute stay at this hotel and had a thoroughly decent stay. On arrival I was informed that we were given a complimentary upgrade (room 61) although the upgrade I am assuming was to a room that was a bit larger and had 2 wash basins in the bathroom although not sure what the point is of...

Very enjoyable overnight stay. Bedroom in the new block which meant no stairs which suited my limited mobility. Also disabled parking space available, along with plenty of other parking spaces. Choice of the evening meal along with the food, were both very good. Also a very good breakfast. Hotel setting with riverside access, and the restaurant looking out to the... More

Enjoyed overnight stay, good local beer, good food (especially breakfast) and good room (new block), beautiful view of Thames from the restaurant - even plenty of room for free parking. Would happily stay again.

Terrible experience- requested quiet room having seen all of the other feedback. Unable to open windows (Room 16) as 4 kitchen extractors fans humming noisily outside the window all night and dispensing smells into the room. Bathroom was also above kitchen prep area so constant chopping, clattering and general loud kitchen noises late into the evening. Forget the 'high speed'... More

We recently spent one night and attend a celebration at this hotel. We found the check in and out very smooth, and our room (9) was in the main (older) part of the hotel with a view of the river. The downside to room 9 was that it was above the Function Room and patio area, so would be noisy... More

The Great House is set on the banks of the Thames and some rooms overlook it. There are nice tables in the garden to sit and enjoy the view. The hotel could do with a bit of refurbishing - although everywhere was clean the decor was a bit tired. Staff were friendly and helpful both when booking and during the... More

We stayed just one night at a weekend, needing a stopover between a friend's celebration and a family event the following day. We arrived mid Saturday evening, having booked a Executive double room in the Clocktower and without a reservation for dinner. The room (no 70) was very spacious and clean, although without the advertised Kingsize bed. They did offer... More

We stayed here 1 night over August Bank holiday. The room was pretty large, with sofa, desk & table etc. The bathroom was also a decent size, with a bath. We ate at the hotel on the Saturday night, we were offered the standard 3 course meal (£22.95) with a choice of options. For £23.00 the meal is fairly average,... More
