I visit this area weekly and have always stayed in the nearby Runnymede-on-Thames hotel (which is also excellent) but found this by chance a few weeks ago. I was a little dubious on entering the hotel as the public areas seem a little tired, but was soon won over by the delightful receptionist and then was amazed by the quality of the room, its fittings and furnishings. I sleep badly in hotels anyway, but this was a great night sleep! Have been back twice since and have had a similarly excellent experience. Only fly in the ointment was the breakfast - not bad, but not great either. If you're a big breakfast lover then this is probably a dealbreaker, otherwise definitely worth a stay.

Room Tip: 212 is their top room - they call it a "suite" and it is (kind of). But at £145 it is stil...

Came away for a weekend with the boyfriend and after we booked we saw some less than favourable reviews for here, however once we got here the staff were very friendly, room was clean tidy and lots of towels etc. We tried the resturant downstairs, and although we were the only ones in there we had more food than we could eat! lovely flavours, fresh cooked Indian food! Waiter was friendly and attentive, breakfat was good too and could eat whatever we wanted! Will def come back, had a wonderful time

Room Tip: we had a double room was lovely

We stayed using a Living Social voucher and like another review found the hotel not to be on the river and outside patio was part of the car park - not a great view! Our room was nice and contemporary and had recently been decorated with a comfy bed. However, the rest of the hotel is run down and filthy - front door as you come into reception sticky and dirty to the touch. The food in the Indian restaurant was probably the worst I have ever eaten. Meat overcooked and burnt, bland curries and sludgy side dishes. The rudeness of the gentleman running the restaurant was breathtaking and we were never offered out third course - we left as not interested in eating more poor food. Checking out was also another rude experience - the Indian gentleman was rude and could not really be bothered to deal with us.

We will not be going back nor recommending this hotel or restaurant. A great shame as the rooms are good.

Stayed on livingsocial voucher Saturday night in August. They had showed a riverside view on the promo. They are not riverside and there is a total lack of ambience. Supposed to be a romantic getaway. Indifference from reception, noisy party, bar staff who don't know basics and run of the mill, Indian quisine. Ended up elsewhere for the evening to avoid noise and get some atmosphere, when we came back at 11.30pm the front door was locked and we had to get let in through the restaurant. Room was well furnished but rooms were packed in and in the morning woken by somebody elses TV. Breakfast food good but very impersonal. Hotel could be so much better if staff showed a little thought.

We stayed at this hotel on 4th August 2012 using a living social voucher, on arrival the hotel looks very bland but there is plenty of character within the walls.We stayed in an executive room 304 right at the top of the building & it was really lovely, it had black oak beams throughout & was decorated in a modern style with black & white feature wallpaper. The bed was very comfortable & the bathroom excellent.
On arrival we were greeted by Chiran who went above and beyond to help us as we were very early, she brought us a cup of coffee while we waited for our room to be made ready.
In the evening we ate at the Saffron restaurant, the three course Indian meal was very good as was the service.
The location of the hotel is perfect for exploring the suburbs of London along the Thames or for a quick train journey ( the station is only 10mins away ) into London.
We also took a walk along the banks of the river which is right on the doorstep.
All in all an exceptional hotel great value & in a perfect quiet location

Yes I know the full quote and she would have been happy with just a good nights sleep! Hotels in and around London, and even peoples perceptions of them are variable at the best of times and it was with trepidation that we booked the Anne Boleyn.
This is an historic area, listed buildings galore including the lovely row of terraced houses overlooking the river opposite the hotel, convenient for this side of London and not a rip off!! There I said it!
This hotel has obviously picked itself up, dusted itself down and started all over again. The exec room I had was great - overlooking the road might have been a disadvantage but this is a quiet road leading mostly to nowhere. Well appointed, modern and clean.
If I'm being picky the bed was too hard for me - but again it's personal preference.The hotel was quiet so breakfast was a civilised affair, well cooked but probably needs a bit more thinking through when busy.
We didnt eat dinner here as one of us is not partial to Indian cuisine - see my review of the The Swan opposite.
Pleasantly surprised!

We spent 2 nights at the Anne Boleyn and really enjoyed it. The Saffron Restaurant attached to the hotel is well worth trying for a great curry! I asked to be upgraded to an executive room (which I paid for) and it was worth it. The big beds, lovely bathroom and space made it worthwhile. Friendly staff,
