Ideal for the centre of Twickenham, the Alexander Pope offers comfortable rooms and a very good breakfast served by friendly staff. The hotel frontage is appealing and it's quite nice to sit out the front of this hotel enjoying a drink on a warm summers evening. Only a 5 minute walk into the centre, you can leave the car in...

I stay in Twickenham on a fairly regular basis, I always like to hire a car to get about and this hotel has a good size car park providing secure off street parking. There is a great local place to hire a fantastic range of cars called Currie Motors. All their cars are top off the range, economical and eco-friendly... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in May 2014. Once pass the impressive glass entrance and through the hotel reception the surroundings look far from modern. The room was in need of painting and a good clean with cobwebs everywhere. The walls are either stained or marked and its the same with the carpet. The room really does need a good... More

I read other reviews and decided to take a chance but I was very disappointed. The rooms are dated and in desperate need of a complete refurbishment. My colleague & I ate in the pub - that should have been it's saving grace, but sadly that was equal to the rooms - pretty poor. (The service was excellent so this... More

Stayed for one night due to attending a wedding nearby, stayed in room 211 which was a double non superior room overlooking the Thames and was ideal for what we needed. The room had a flat screen TV, tea/coffee making facilities and free WIFI, bed was comfortable and the room was clean with a bath with shower over. Although we... More

Choose this hotel for convenience regarding a match at Twickenham, half an hour walk door to door. Hotel was good value for money, clean and tidy, friendly staff, excellent bar and the food was very good. The breakfast service was a little weak, staff seemed to lack direction, although the cooked breakfast was very nice. Location excellent, very handy for... More

A good spot if you want to visit Strawberry Hill and the uni round the corner, but a bit of a walk to the centre of Twickenham. The room was really quite worn, but service very friendly and the bed comfy enough. The restaurant serves good food at reasonable prices. The best thing for me was discovering that the very... More
