Great location but watch the morning traffic - it is pretty heavy with both routes to the M4 slow going. Hotel was easy to find and on balance I was best pleased. Some of the reviews were a bit rough and probably for good reason because the nicest rooms overlook the Thames so it may be worth booking direct to ensure you get what you want. I had an upgrade to room 105 which overlooked the beer garden and the river and was very well appointed, clean, spacious and comfortable - there really was nothing to complain about - had a great night’s sleep in a massive bed (perfect for playing my favourite game of "starfish n' snore") - staff helpful and efficient - overall very good and a nice hotel bar with good selection of beers etc. Continental Breakfast served its purpose or you can upgrade to full English. - BUT for all the internal upgrades the owners must seriously consider replacing the old sash windows - they didn't shut properly or open even and potentially you could have a bad experience from noise (beer garden / street / car park etc.) and also quite draughty. For me no problem on the night but it's easy to see where it could go so badly wrong. I didn't notice any lifts so for less able travellers some of the rooms may be a problem? Overall very nice indeed - probably make a great weekend getaway too, the walks along the river looked really nice - 10 mins walk to the centre of town.
