Food is very good (they have a real chef which helps). The bar is cosy and friendly with a good selection of Ales, Lagers and Ciders (even a proper draft Cider).
The rooms are well equipped (good power showers) Flat Tv's, wifi etc but can be a little noisy due to pub customers but this quietens down around eleven. The beds are probably due to be refreshed as mine was quite worn and not as comfortable as it should be.
The staff are very good attentive, friendly and accommodating I had to leave early and the Chef was on hand to make me a quick breakfast.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Baskerville is the perfect blend of traditional village pub, an outstaning restaurant and superb, value for money accommodation. It is an AA 4 star Inn and is similarly rated by Visit England but with a Silver Award. It is situated on the Thames Path in the tranquil, affluent village of Lower Shiplake With well appointed, ensuite rooms, the Baskerville is the perfect place to stay the night either for business or just for a leisurely break. The small town of Henley-on-Thames with its many interesting shops and home to the Henley Royal Regatta and the Henley Festival is only 2 miles away. Enjoy a boat trip up the Thames or visit the River and Rowing Museum. Try a night at the Kenton theatre, the fourth oldest in England. Within the village why not stroll along to Shiplake lock and watch the river cruisers pass through. A little further up the hill is the 13th century parish church of St Mary's where Alfred Lord Tennyson was married. Further afield are the towns of Reading 7 miles, Windsor, with its castle, and nearby Legoland. 15 miles, and the university town of Oxford, 22 miles. All of these can be reached by train from Shiplake station 150 m from the pub via the Henley branch line to Twyford on First Great Western trains. Feeling a little more adventurous?
