Nothing is too much trouble for the happy and helpful staff in this excellent hotel; never obsequious nor simply "going through the motions" the hotel defies all the corporate posturing that is so sadly ubiquitous nowadays..
Rooms are bright and modern - and the "Whitestuff" toiletries welcome - and if you can get a Riverside room, then the coming and going of boats navigating the lock provide a much better entertainment than that which is on the room's TV!
We dined in the buffet style restaurant and the food was wonderful - Ottolenghi type salads vie with a huge range of fish and meaty offerings - and many return trips were made! The breakfast was equally excellent - and the scrambled egg (my benchmark!) was fluffy, fresh, creamy and .... I ought to stop before I get too carried away.
The restaurant staff were attentive, but never intrusive and the manager, Lorenzo welcomed us back like family!
So any complaints? Well it is near Heathrow, so the occasional A380 makes for additional interest as it passes over at 3,000 feet - thank the Almighty for modern whisper jets!
The spa area and gym looked excellent and offered a range of treatments enjoyed by my wife as part of her special birthday celebrations.
This was our fifth stay - and each time we are never disappointed.
An outstanding hotel, and a wonderful way to spend a memorable weekend.
