“Lovely place and great to explore English country just outside London”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

Lovely place. One of the best properties near London. Quite close to Heathrow.
Great English food. Great rooms and outdoor facilities. It was a great place to spend lazy outdoors. Egham is close and watching FIFA matches was excellent. Good Pubs nearby.

Room Tip: try to get a river view. beds too soft so ask for a hard bed if available.

What a fabulous time we had, celebrating my mother's 70th birthday. We ate at the Leftbank restaurant, enjoying the excellent buffet which kept both the 7 and 70 year olds happy! We were looked after by a wonderfully attentive young man called Gary, who was so efficient yet allowed us to relax in such a great setting. The children enjoyed the play things set out on the river frontage which allowed the adults to sit back and enjoy the ambience of a sophisticated, peaceful place. We'd love to return again, perhaps to try the hotel itself with its wonderful swimming pools (inside and out). You should go there!

Thank you so much for such a lovely review and I am so pleased that you chose Leftbank to celebrate your mother’s 70th birthday, I am glad that the buffet in Leftbank catered for both your 7 and 70 year old guests and that Gary looked after you so attentively. For your information Gary has now been nominated for employee of the quarter due to your commendation on his service.
I am glad that the younger guests made use of the giant jenga and connect 4 on the riverside terraces and we all look forward to you returning in the near future for a stay with us.

Firstly i have driven past this hotel for years and always wondered what it would be like to stay & i must say the expectations were met in january of 2014. I booked a night stay over for me & my partner with breakfast included, we had a standard double room & were astonished at the quality, cleanliness & size of the room, It was fantastic the bathroom was amazing, the complimentary items were also great. We dined in the lock restaurant which was equally amazing the food & service 10/10, we found our stay here was beyond what we expected all the staff very helpful & friendly, the location is simply spot on beside the lovely river views & also 5 mins drive into old windsor, a great day out..we enjoyed our stay so much within a month of checking out we are due to check back in this summer for a weekend stay :) highly recommended.

Thank you for your glowing review of the runnymede-on-thames and I am so pleased that having driven past us a few times you chose to stay with us earlier in the year. I am glad that you found your room comfortable, clean and spacious with an amazing bathroom with complimentary toiletries.

I have passed on your kind comments regarding the food and service to the team as it is always nice for them to receive positive feedback.
We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future maybe for more walks along the river and into Old Windsor.

We attended a charity function for one night. Our standard double room was comfortable, with all we could need. We arrived late afternoon, and showered and got ready for our evening. Toiletries were sufficent for both of us, and during the evening, fresh towels replaced our used ones. All staff were polite and helpful. Would love to return for a longer stay. Oh, and lovely location.

Went to the hotel for a Charity function and had a standard double room. Very well equiped, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was busy but staff supplied tea and coffee while we waited and only waited a short time. Breakfast was very good and staff in all areas pleasant and informative. Intend to revisit this hotel in order to explore the riverside walk and the surrounding area.

Room Tip: Our room was suitable for one night but the A/C was a bit noisy and facing the river would have been...

We were in a room in the new annex, it was comfortable, but just like any other hotel room. The breakfast was very good & plentiful. All the staff were very friendly, attentive & helpful. As the weather was very good we spent time in the outdoor pool, it was lovely.it was nice to sit out on the side of the Thames watching the boats. All in all a very pleasant stay.

Having dined at the hotel previously we thought it a good place to stay overnight with visitors from the USA. Could the room have been any smaller? We had booked a package on DBB but were so disappointed in the overall offerings (see other reviews) . There was a river view which was nice but there was little room to unpack or hang anything. The bathroom was tiny and the bath at was soiled....there are better places near bye. Tiny double beds.

Thank you for your review of the runnymede and I am glad that you enjoyed the river location, I am however sorry that you found our standard double rooms to be too small although I can assure you that we have a rolling programme in place currently to replace the non-slip surfaces in some of the baths where it has become worn.
