Stayed here again while attending a match at HQ - even better room (no.2) on the ground floor - beautifully furnished and very well equipped. We managed to have lunch this time and were well very well fed and watered. A real pleasure to stay here, we will be back

Stayed here for one night while in town for business. Hotel room was fairly newly renovated and of high standard. Bed comfort was above average and breakfast in the morning was good. Pub in the evening had some good beer selection (Pale Ale) and the hotel is located across the street from the Thames River. Definitely will stay here again... More

We booked two nights here, after it was recommended to us by friends, when attending a wedding nearby. We were very impressed; the staff were friendly and helpful, the room was clean and comfortable and the breakfast was tasty and filling. We also enjoyed a walk along the Thames in the park opposite, where we sat and watched people rowing... More

This was second time staying at the Pope. On arrival, we discovered our room only had a shower, no bath tub. We mentioned our disappointment as we were having dinner in the restaurant. Although the staff were very busy, covering both the packed bar and the hotel, a very nice young man switched keys for us, and we moved to... More

Stayed 1 night but wished we could of stayed longer. Lovely views out over Radnor gardens and Thames. Room was very comfortable with a fab shower. Breakfast was spot on and would recommend getting up for it. Staff were friendly and welcoming.

Less than 10 mins walk from Strawberry Hill station and half an hour in a taxi from Heathrow. Great location and lovely views across the road to the park and river. Very nice room, well equipped and large comfortable bed. Breakfast was also very good and appreciated the 'cooked to order' full English - delicious. Unfortunately only there for one... More

As usual the staff were really helpful. Room was excellent since the refurb. Facing the river. Had great difficulty with WiFi in room but staff got me logged on. Lighting in room was dim which meant I was unable to read when it got dark. Need to have one brighter light. Food in the evening was super. Breakfast was mixed.... More

We stayed two nights at the end of May as we were going to a garden party at Buckingham Palace and wanted to stay outside of central London. After much searching and taking note of other hotel reviews we opted for Alexander Pope. What a great find, excellent location and 5 minutes walk to the train station. We had a... More
