We just had the one night here but it was great. Very well set out nice rooms with everything you would want - fridge with mini bar, espresso coffee machine etc. Nice modern bathroom and breakfast and parking supplied. Friendly service was the icing on the cake

Enjoyed a one night stay. lovely hot shower but disappointing that you have to climb in the bath to use it! Booked breakfast. My husband's was good and hot. Mine was the veggie option and sadly was barely warm. Toast was good though you have to make your own. Lovely friendly staff/bar staff. Very convenient location.

Scruffy and run down hotel, needs a good clean. Dirty tables light fittings and carpets. Be aware they take an extra percentage of you card when you book in, although refunded to you if you don't use the mini bar or give your room number in the bar or Restaurant. Young staff on the bar were very good, but apart... More

I was there to eat something late in the afternoon, after a very busy day. It was not too busy. I told about my allergies (lactose and gluten so this means food that contains milk and any derivatives and wheat). I was told I could have the brixham crab pot (brown schrimp, fennel and watercress salad). To my surprise, it... More

My parents recently stayed her wile visiting me. Bad idea the manager, a tall old guy with brown hair was so unpleasant and grumpy, he looked like he had just lost his last £5!! and was very rude to other staff members. My mum was going to complain to him, but because of his unapproachable manor she never. However the... More

... because the decoration and attention to detail in the rooms and the restaurant are awesome. Somebody spent a lot of time to create a wonderful atmosphere and the place has a lot of potential. Unfortunately the place has an air of neglect and the attention to detail was not followed through. Our room with balcony was stunning, but the... More

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
