“The White Hart is a real treat.”
Reviewed December 16, 2008

A hidden gem in the heart of Nettlebed! Well equiped rooms, cosy dining room and bar, with fabulous food. the White Hart has an excellent and very creative menu. The success of any establishment hinges on it's staff and they were all excellent, very attentive and helpful. It is the little things that make a stay special and in this case it was the home made biscuits, quality bottled water, towling robes and a good selection of magazines. In addition the rooms are beautifully decorated and very up-to-date. The White Hart's location was perfect for an early flight from Heathrow.

very well presented with each room being by itself like like chalets and each named after a flavour. Massive bed and cosy tv.
Close to Henley on Thames didnt visit the bar went into Henley itself to get dinner. Very pleasant and cosy.

Stayed August 2007, traveled on business

It is an old English Inn. The rooms are modern, clean & the bed was comfortable. l stayed in an annex room attached to the hotel in a pleasant courtyard setting. The buffet breakfast was good, but the evening meal in their bistro was disappointing. Although l don't eat large portions, l thought my meal was very expensive. I had steak & chips, which consisted of 9 chunky chips stacked in a tower on the plate and a rather small, but cooked to my liking, piece of steak. I didn't realise there would be no vegetables or side salad served with it, otherwise we would have ordered side dishes as well. My meal included summer pudding, a glass of house wine and pot of tea for one. The cost of my evening meal was around £31.

Stayed here before a business meeting in Henley early next day.

It's trying to be a boutique hotel but needs a serious overhaul. Good points - location, reception staff and the breakfast.

Bad points - everything else. In no particular order...cramped room, creaky bed, cushions absolutely covered in unidentified stains, tiny tv in a cupboard of which the doors touched the bed making it impassable, space in front of the sink not wide enogh to stand face on without touching cold shower screen or burning sholder on heated towel rail, fixed shower head too low to get under, trickle of water from shower accompanied by noise like a road drill, chat from staff through floors/doors until after midnight, noise from heating (?) system in cupboard in room til about 1am, noise from extractor/aircon fan outside bathroom all night, tired carpets and decoration, room not heated until just before I arrived and radiator at full tilt smelt like burning rubber poerfect because I was unable to open window as it was a rooftop fire escape!, upholstery on bar seats filthy, needs redecoration throughout.

I'm sure I've forgotten some things but you get the idea! Paid £75 from bookings .com - much too expensive even at that price.

I wouldn't go again or recommend this to anyone I didn't REALLY dislike.

Booked in for one night based on a discount price and good reviews on trip advisor.

The overall impression is that staff and management care about the accommodation and service they provide and want guest to genuinely enjoy their stay.

The rooms are stylishly decorated if not particularly spacious, bathroom was clean and modern -although if you were much over 6ft you might struggle to get under the shower, the ground floor rooms are probably better as they don’t have the sloping eaves.

Service in the bar / restaurant was more tha adequate and food was very good at a reasonable price. Breakfast was equally good.
The only poor point was the bath robe provided was dirty - looked like make up.

Would be happy to stay here again.

  • Liked — It was different from the norm.
  • Disliked — dirty bathrobe

Spent Saturday night in White Hart Hotel as only 1 hour drive from N. London and more than fulfilled our desire to find a gastropub with bedrooms. This hotel should probably be classed as modern boutique hotel with the added benefits of a lovely bar with log fire and excellent food in the bistro (there is also a restaurant we didn't use, though it seemed very high standard).
The guide to the hotel also included a walk around Nettlebed which takes 1 1/2 to 2 hours through picturesque enlish woodlands and rolling fields. This was a real treat especially coming back to a roaring fire and real ale.
Our room - pistachio,(1 of 12 rooms) was housed in the original 15th century building at the front of the building. There are more modern apartment style rooms at the rear, but the furnishings for are all habitat style comfort.
The only negative I can counter with is the lack of people in the Bistro when we ate at 20:30 which doesn't create the warm busy atmosphere you would expect, I guess if enough people write positive reviews of the hotel, it can only get more popular.

Very nice hotel. Decor is minimal but very modern - lovely cosy fire in bar. Execellent bistro and restaurant. Staff are excellant v. attentive. We took some drinks to our room and the hotel manager saw us leaving the bar and followed us with bowls of nuts to eat as well. Only 5 mins drive out of Henley on Thames - thoroughly recommend it.
