Excellent! I enjoyed the stay due to various activities that were ongoing throughout the day and also the location was a favourable choice. My kids also had an enjoyable and memorable time as the swimming pool proved to be fun and exciting.

Our family party spent a few nights here as my daughter was getting married at a nearby venue. The bedrooms are a little small but they are clean, modern and comfortable and we enjoyed our Executuve Queen room. Having read reviews I booked Superior rooms for the family and this was appreciated as they have air con. Some of the... More

Attending a wedding with the reception at the Lensbury so booked an Executive room on the third floor. Great location, 10 min walk to Teddington high street, backs on to the Thames, nice river walks. There is a very good Spa/gym which is clearly well used with many activities in the grounds and tennis courts. The front entrance is nice... More

We have stayed here a few times and this was a last minute booking made via the hotel website. We wanted to stay 3 mights so we could go into London on each day.

We attended a friends wedding here and the whole event was wonderful. The service was attentive but unobtrusive and the food delicious. I would totally recommend this wedding venue to anyone. The only drawback to the whole day was the attitude displayed by a member of the club. We had arrived outside and our driver was waiting to reverse over... More

I have never reviewed anything on Trip Advisor previously but felt I should after our recent visit to The Lensbury in Teddington. Having last visited when it was owned by Shell, probably more than 20 years ago, I was ready for some changes but did not think it could be improved in every area, which I'm delighted to say it...

Our room was small but comfortable and very well serviced. The breakfast buffet was great and the staff were on their toes the whole time. The hotel grounds are stunning and we enjoyed serveral walks along the banks of the Thames. The England Rugby team were there at the same time; it was like walking amongst giants!

We booked this hotel because they did a deal for a two night stay which included tickets to Hampton Court. We arrived on Friday evening and got booked in ok, and discovered we were in an annexe.

I have been a member of Lensbury for over 13 years so it has always been a balance between a club and a hotel it looks like the Hotel has won that debate which is a shame.
