My husband and I stayed at the Wheatsheaf for 2 nights using a hotel voucher we had. From the outside it just looks like a pub and we weren't sure we were in the right place but the hotel is actually above the pub. This wasn't a problem as there was no noise from the pub which doesn't close too late and the hotel is through a door which only staff and guests can get through.
Our room was lovely - spacious, comfy, a huge bed, and a huge bathroom. I was a bit put out that our room was right next to the generator and above the kitchen so there was a bit of noise (although the kitchen noise you will only hear if you've got really good hearing). The generator constantly hummed through the night which would have been annoying if we hadn't used the air conditioner but it was so hot in the room that we needed it on all night. I was debating whether or not to ask for a different room but in the end decided not to. Even though we liked the hotel neither of us slept very well there. Whether that was because of the generator noise or the hot room I don't know, but we couldn't open a window to make it cooler as the generator would have been louder!
The pub/restaurant downstairs was very good and served great meals for a reasonable price. We did wait quite a while for our food one night but the food was good and worth the wait. The bar staff were very friendly and helpful and helped us take our food up to our room one night. The breakfast was great with fruit, cereal, toast and a full English.
It's in a great, quiet and secluded location right on the Virginia Water park and lake which is lovely to go to in the summer. It's also only a 15 minute drive from Thorpe Park and close to Legoland and Windsor Castle.
I would recommend this hotel as we really enjoyed our stay there and would certainly go back again. Just make sure you don't get the room next to the generator and it'll be a perfect stay!
