I enjoyed a top notch visit to the Alexander Pope with colleagues. We had a lovely evening meal with friendly and efficient service. Followed by a great nights sleep. The newly designed bedroom and bathroom was tranquil and comfortable. A home from home.

Selected at random and not dissapointed. Good pub food available throughout the day and into the evenings. Excellent views of the River from a balconied room which had been tastefully furnished with all necessary facilities.

Food always plentiful and excellently prepared, served well and in good time. Not cheap but you know what.....check... More

Stayed for two nights in the hotel. Apparently the rooms are all recently refurbished and I can't find a single fault. the only thing I would say is that the rooms now outshine the pub downstairs. Ate in the pub for lunch and was surprised that they did table service. We were really looked after by the staff who were... More

I had stayed in the hotel before a few years ago and whilst it was OK, it felt a bit tired and in need of some TLC. As my usual hotel, the Marriott at the rugby stadium, was fully booked, I will not stay at the Travelodge by the railway station and the Premier Inn had disappointed me before, I... More

I had to stay at the Alexander Pope recently for one night only. The last time I was there, it was still called the Pope's Grotto and was one of many pubs in Twickenham! There are still refurbishments going on and I was lucky enough to get one of the finished rooms (202), facing a side street. My room was... More

Stayed here for one night following the England v France tryfest - great location just off the centre of town. We got there at noon so not surprised room was not ready, a warm up pint in the bar or two later and they had made the effort so that was great as we could dump bags and freshen up.... More
