We stayed as part of a wedding party and were very pleased with the position, room, staff and food. Free parking was a bonus. The hotel is directly opposite a park with children's play area and riverside walks. It is only a 10 minute walk into Twickenham centre with its shops and railway station. The rooms look to have been... More

That's a bit of a weird title for a review perhaps, but it describes this hotel perfectly. This is a pub hotel - they have a nice bar, outside dining area and very lovely building, but the rooms are really modern. I don't know if there is a lot of difference between individual rooms, but my room was very spacey,... More

We booked a table for dinner, midweek and were very disappointed with the service received. It took half an hour to have our order taken and food was very slow to be served. The restaurant was busy and there appeared to be insufficient staff serving. Other customers arrived after us but their meals were delivered before ours and they left... More

Had a very comfortable stay in a lovely room with balcony overlooking the river. Good facilities and quality of drinks and snacks x Free parking, proximity to town centre and event we were attending all great. Only grumble was the unfriendly welcome from a disinterested young receptionist, however the receptionist on checking out made up for the initial girls attitude.... More

Very good value for money with a comfortable and well appointed double bedroom and first class breakfast menu served by cheerful staff who really wanted to help. Free on site secured car parking and a lively bar. All in all we would recommend it to other travellers and it rates as well as many much more expensive establishments. We shall... More

Haven't stayed here for a few years due to poor quality and very smelly drains in the rooms but have just returned from 2 nights and the room are beautifully refurbished. Very impressed and have booked our return weekend.

Stayed for one night only but the room was modern, beautifully decorated with an excellent bathroom, fluffy towels and a powerful shower. Breakfast had a great choice of foods inc full english, staff were all friendly. Plenty of parking made the short walk into Twickers really easy. Would definitely recommend.

We booked 2 rooms for 2 nights and as usual we were not disappointed. The welcome was warm and friendly and bedrooms next to each other on the second floor with lovely views of the river. Rooms were very comfortable with beautifully soft towels, pillows and duvets so we all got great nights' sleep. My only complaint is the tap... More

The Alexander Pope is a lovely hotel with beautifully decorated rooms. I have stayed there a number of times so far for work and will be doing so again. The only observation I have is that the first time I stayed my room service food was very disappointing for the price and quite dry and tasteless. I have however stayed... More

My wife and I stayed here for two nights with my parents as we were returning to visit family in Teddington. Rooms are very nice and facilities are exactly what you require. Both rooms overlooked Radnor Gardens; views of this are particularly lovely. Check in was a bit long winded and quite intense, but service throughout the hotel is generally... More
