4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Very comfortable room, lots of space with sofa and good TV. Bathroom was shower only and slightly complex electronic switches but very smart. Good tea, coffee making facilities with fresh milk. Very quiet despite being on a main road Breakfast very good though service a bit random

Stayed at the hotel, which is also a public house for three nights. Generally impressed with the standard offered. The room I stayed in was furnished with good quality furniture and a comfortable bed. Coffee maker and kettle supplied. The bathroom was of a good size and again fitted out to good standard. Plenty of hot water. I didn't eat... More

Stayed overnight here. Had previously stayed in a Young's Brewery hotel and found it good but this place was way above it. It has recently been refurbished and it looks really good. We went to watch a rugby game at The Stoop but it is also in a good position for the Twickenham stadium too. The decor is modern but... More

Clean, modern and friendly hotel. Parts have been refurbished, especially reception and restaurant/bar. Excellent location close to town and not to far from rugby, about 30 min walk. Slightly pricey food. Breakfast disorganised and please get tubs of spread rather than put two little bits on each table. Bedroom needed a net at window as faced onto street. Good quality... More

I was very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the rooms. They were beautifully appointed and tremendous value for money. I would recommend anyone to stay here as the rooms are far better than anything in the neighbourhood. The one downside is the tables and chairs in the attached pub are a little tired and in need of refurbishment.

I stopped staying in Central London years ago and choose places a decent train ride out, and which in total is miles cheaper. Chose this place in Twickenham after reading Trip reviews and not disappointed. Check in was quick and security lift to upper floors presumably to combat the crowds on rugby days. I had a room at the front... More

We stayed here for one night and were blown away. The room was truly exceptional. We travel a lot world wide and cannot think of a better hotel we have stayed in. The room was large with a couple of seating areas and of course an en suite. The en suite was kitted out with push on/off taps which lit... More

The Alexander Pope was an unknown to us, but proved to be a very good choice to stay. It is on a busy road but car parking is available. The room we stayed in had been updated & was very comfortable. The restaurant serves a good dinner. Well worth the stay & would so again.
