“Clean friendly hotel, would definitely return”
Reviewed September 13, 2013 via mobile

We recently stayed one night at this hotel (7th September) due to visiting Lego land and Thorpe park for the weekend, the hotel was close to all amenities, 10minutes to the local train station which is very regular we even popped into London on the Saturday evening. The hotel itself was excellent, we had breakfast included and this was a nice cooked buffet breakfast aswell as the choice of pastries, cereal etc, the waiting staff were very friendly. Wi-if was included at this hotel which is a nice touch when staying this was a fast connection. The reception staff were also excellent, the lady offered us the opportunity to upgrade to a refurbished room, we took this opportunity up, and can't fault anything for the price we paid. She also went out of her way to help direct us to the local amenities. We will definitely return to the Boleyn hotel

Watch out with this hotel. They are in the middle of refurbishing the hotel rooms and whilst the rooms in the main part of the hotel building have been completed, if you are unlucky enough to have booked a standard room and are not prepared to pay an additional amount to upgrade your room to one of the refurbished rooms, your stay will not be very pleasant. The basic rooms are very basic to say the least and whilst the beds are new and the bathroom clean, the rooms are very tired and are down a corridor that is what I can only describe as "sinister". We spent one night in the basic and then negotiated a reasonable upgrade for the remaining three nights.

A couple of points for the hotel owners (1) Make sure your housekeeping are cleaning your rooms property. The newly refurbished room I stayed in desperately needed its carpet vacuuming - from the large layer of dust on the carpet I would say that the room had never been vacuumed since it was refurbished! (2) Your bar area is dreadful, souless and does not welcome your guests. You need comfortable furniture in there together with a carpet and ambient lighting - also, get rid of the TV and play some back ground music! Sort this out and your might find your guests stay in your hotel bar area in the evening rather than going across the road to the Swan!

Room Tip: Book a standard room at the peril! Executive rooms are lovely - top floor is quiet although there is...

Visiting friends in Egham for a 25th Wedding Anniversary party, so wanted a hotel B&B package close by. Of the 16 Hotels on offer we thought the Boleyn was competitively priced and looked nice from the photos. The rooms were very modern with comfortable beds, flat screen TVs with a refurbished bathroom and comfortable sitting area. The room was excellent.The receptionist was very friendly and efficient and dealt with our payment, breakfast and evening meal times information, plus provided the wifi codes. She also organised Taxis there and back to our friends house and these were on time. The breakfast buffet the following morning was a bit haphazard. Everything was there , from what you expected,but it just wasn't well organised enough. Unfortunately too many of the guests came down at the same time and there were just not enough clear tables. Don't have a problem with buffet service but prefer a buffet service when the tea/coffee and toast are at least waiter served. Nice touch having a big TV with the news on, but would be better if the tables were side on so the both people could see the TV rather than 1 facing it and one with their back to it.

Room Tip: Rooms on first floor have better views of the river.

I stayed for three nights whilst on business. The rooms are very modern and cosy; they appear to have spent some money on them recently. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom specious and modern. The room had a homely feel to it, less clinical than some modern hotels can be. Free Wi-Fi is provided throughout the hotel which I found to be fast and reliable. There is an Indian restaurant attached but it is only open from 17:30 onwards, so you are a bit stuck food wise or if you are not a fan of Indian cuisine. However there is a traditional pub over the road and it is 5mins walk in to the town centre where there are a number of bars and restaurants. Breakfast was buffet style and the same as most other hotels, serving traditional English breakfast or cereals etc.

We stayed in this hotel after a day at thorpe park. The hotel was lovely and clean. Our room was very nice modern and clean. You can tell they've spent some money on the rooms. The bar could could be abit more welcoming but the reception staff were helpful. The location was good the town centre is only across the bridge. Breakfast was buffet style full English. Cereals fruit pastries juices and coffee and teas. I would definatly recommend this hotel to anyone.

The location of this hotel is walking distance from the Thames and Staines town centre. My room was beautifully decorated was good in size and the bed was very comfortable. The high-speed internet was very good. The only thing that disturbed me was the unfriendliness and the human hair particles left the shower. Which was a sign that the shower was a surface cleaning job only. The breakfast was okay, but I have had better breakfast in other hotels.

Stayed for one night on business. A very drab and unwelcoming reception area - a vase of dying flowers on the desk. I stayed in room 502 on the ground floor. The corridor from reception to the room was dirty and poorly decorated - there were two ironing boards, that had clearly seen better days, just propped up against a wall. The room was one of the smallest that I have ever stayed in and the furniture looked like something out of the 70s. Everything in the room looked cheap and nasty. There was no air conditioning, just a desk fan, and the room was particularly hot and stuffy. I opened the window, which was facing the car park and had bars bolted to the outside, but had to close it again due to the noise of aircraft. I cannot comment on the restaurant as I did not take dinner or breakfast. The only saving grace was the free wifi access. Most certainly not worth the room-only rate of £100 that I paid through Bookings.com.
