“Shame about the weather”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2014

Quirky hotel in a great location close to Eton High Street and Windsor Town Centre and walks along the river. Food and service were fabulous. Reception staff very friendly, efficient and helpful. Room was not to the standard I had expected although well appointed with all services you would expect. Free wi-fi patchy in the room we had.

Room Tip: Don't have a room adjacent to the river walkway (Room 43) as an example

Dear Tony Z,

Thank you so much for this humbling review of your stay with us at the Sir Christopher Wren Hotel and Spa.

I was so thrilled to read that you were most impressed with the service in all areas of the hotel that you encountered, this is something we are always working on.

Hopefully you now have reason to return from Swindon and we can allocate you a room more to your taste.

Warm regards,
Jill Moran

Wanting to do something special for my other half on our anniversary I booked a room at the hotel and requested a room that overlooked the river. I was helped by Andi (a member of the front desk team) who assisted me in setting up a perfect evening. Nothing was too much trouble for Andi and she organised everything in the hotel on time for our arrival. It was great to see that some places will go the extra mile for you and the hotel and especially Andi did that.

Thoroughly recommended.

(Thanks Andi :) )

Room Tip: The river view rooms with terraces can't be reserved for a night so request them but you'll...

Lovely setting and accomodation.
Parking was not good in the surrounding area, however we called the hotel and they made arrangements for their valet parking which was already over subscribed with pre bookings, real nice touch as my partner is 8 months pregnant...special mention to Andi & Charlotte for their great appreciation of our situation (thank you).
The place itself is in a great location and is of a high calibre..
Will definitely be our first option when we visit Windsor again..

I've got a good deal, but the hotel is normally quite expensive.
horrible carpet floor in the room, relatively noisy room.
location is excellent for a walk out in the evening.
nice bar, with a nice terrace on the Thames river

My sister and I stayed. Both really impressed with the friendly and helpful staff. I booked an executive double by mistake instead of twin but we were instantly moved and upgraded to an apartment (for only ten pounds extra per night) which was lovely. All the staff we met were friendly and helpful - Charlotte the receptionist, plus the receptionist who sorted our room arrangements, sorry we haven't got your name) Marius the porter and Gabor in the restaurant. It is so important that the staff in hotels are welcoming, as they are the people that make a good hotel, and all the staff in this hotel went the extra mile for their guests by being friendly, helpful and cheerful. Sarova hotels should be proud of their staff at this hotel.

Right on the river,watching the boats pass by was so relaxing.The welcome at reception was very efficient and polite.Understated good manners were prevalent in every corner of the hotel.Number 32 was newly and tastefully refurbished,of decent size and comfort.The sausages at breakfast were delicious.Two minutes walk from the train station but still a very quiet and relaxing hotel.

Room Tip: No 32 is large ,light and very comfortable
