little bit of a reluctant review as I use this hotel all the time and really don't want to struggle to find availability, however want to be fair to staff and owners for so many pleasant nights away After recent refurb the large rooms are very well appointed, particularly the ones on the third floor which border on suites Dining...

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

We were fortunate to be entertained here once again this time en route to the England vs France finale of the six nations. We had a late lunch which considering how busy they were was exceptional. The fish was better than I had in Padstow two days previous at Mr Steins cafe. Hats off to all the staff and owners.

We stayed for three nights in September 2013 (not in 2014, I know I'm very late for my review). The hotel as such is beautifully located and has the bus-stops just in front of the house. The breakfast buffet offers not much variety and if you're just a little late, you'll find most of the plates empty. Sometimes there's a... More

Extremely poor!! I will never return. There was nobody at the check-in desk, I had to flag a waiter down who appeared to be doing everything....The family room that we booked was dirty, old, worn-out and needed gutting. I was not going to allow my children to have a bath there as the tiles were cracked, missing and dirty. I... More

Not a bad place to stay, could do with a lick of paint and some maintenance around the bedrooms and hallways though. 20 mins walk to Twickenham so ideally situated if you want to go and watch some rugby, and plenty of pubs en route too. I personally would not eat there again, the staff were not over exciting when... More

We stayed here on a visit to the rugby at Twickenham and were really impressed. The staff were all very helpful and efficient - it was a really warm welcome (despite the fact that it was really busy with the Rugby crowd) The bar had loads of character and was modern but with plenty of charm. The rooms had everything... More

I must have stayed at this hotel 6 times on business. I like older characterful hotels with grander rooms and this fits the bill form. Good size rooms, good shower, friendly service, parking can be a little tight as it is a busy hotel/restaurant. Breakfast is very nice. East walking distance along the Thames and into Twickenham centre so you... More
