This is a beautiful village sadly spoiled by hundreds of signs telling you what not to do or where NOT to go. The Olde Bell looks charming but is outrageously overpriced. Two diet cokes for £7.20! Need I say more?

Its situated in the beautiful little village of Hurley and is just a few minutes walk from the Thames.

We booked a celebration package for the weekend, one night's stay, and upgraded to the luxury room. upon arrival we were put in room 1 which we believe was the bridal suite. This did not have the games console as per description of the luxury room, to my chagrin and my partner's delight. It is a very old building and...

We were married in the Malthouse in February. It was brilliant!! Chanel was so friendly, supportive and helpful in the lead up to the wedding. She was full of ideas and nothing was too much trouble.

I think pretty much all of the guests commented on how nice the venue was. Having the building to ourselves definitely made it feel more intimate, and I know people enjoyed the food.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Beautiful 12th century inn, set in the heart of the pretty village of Hurley on Thames. The coaching Inn, updated. Using locally sourced food cooked simply, the Inn provides eating, drinking, lodgings. Parts of the building date back to 1135, with nooks and crannies and crooked floors. For the warmer months, enjoy local ales and eats from our summer kitchen in our huge meadow garden, or in the winter, make yourself at home inside by our open fires. We also have 48 bedrooms and 7 individually designed rooms in various auxiliary buildings, seating from 8 to 150 people for weddings, meetings and private parties. Only 45 minutes from central London, 20 minutes from Heathrow with good road transport links and Maidenhead Train Station 4 miles away and free wifi throughout. ... more   less
