“a pleasant surprise with very friendly and helpful staff”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

We didn't know what to expect as bookings had been made through recommendation of a close by boarding school. Reception staff was very friendly on the phone giving directions from Slough.
We got an up grade and the rooms were absolutely nice, clean and comfortable - which I didn't expect from a country hotel.

Only minus : no bathroom amenities at all !! Only soap available, no shampoo, no body lotion, no cotton buds, no tissue, no shower cap - In my opinion absolutely essential not only for women.

As we extended our stay we had to move to different rooms the next day, these were relative smaller rooms, but also clean and with comfortable beds.

Breakfast was not included in the price. The choice of continental breakfast buffet was rather small; no cheese, no ham, no sausages. Selection of fresh fruit also rather small.
Friendly staff, but slightly overwhelmed, on second day she forgot my husbands order of full english breakfast. Plates were very small, even the slice of bread was larger than the plate.

Dinner in the chef and brewer pub dining section - both evenings very friendly staff !
Prices are very reasonable, you could have 2 courses for 10GBP or 3 courses for 13 GBP
Food of good quality but rather dull - Rumpsteak was perfect, also the salmon perfectly grilled but could tolerate some more spices and seasoning, at least salt please !
But all in all I would recommend this hotel again and look forward to come again

We recently stayed here for 1 night whilst down in the area for a family wedding; my parents and sister & brother in law also stayed too. Have to say it was very good value for money and we had a very good nights sleep. Our room was spacious, bed very comfy and bathroom huge, though our view from our window overlooked the service area (but not an issue at all). The floors are creaky but luckily we were not disturbed at all by other guests walking down the corridors.
Breakfast (charged extra to the room) was very good - excellent choice from continental, light choices such as poached egg on toast or a bacon sandwich to full English.
Reception lady was lovely and was very organised even when inundated with stressed wedding guests all trying to check in at the same time!

A nice little place at a good price, comfortable room, good wifi. Convenient for the town and railway station. Corridor outside was a bit creaky and people walking up and down with their screaming children, but can hardly blame the hotel for that. But lady on reception was super helpful, allowing me to store my bag and park the car overnight while I went to London -- many thanks.

Stayed here on Saturday night for a wedding being held locally. This is a Pub/Restaurant/Hotel set at the end of the main "high street" in Gerrards Cross. If you are looking for an informal, relaxed place to stay then this is ideal. Rooms are of a good size and maintained to a decent standard and we had no problems with noise either from inside or outside the hotel.Prices are reasonable, especially for the area, but do not include breakfast which costs £8 for the full English which is freshly cooked NOT buffet. My only minor issue is that check-in is not until 2.00pm which when you have a wedding at 1.30pm caused a slight problem but the staff allowed us to check-in early to get our key cards without being able to access the room. in fact my rating would only have been average but for the very friendly and helpful lady receptionist and our waiter in the morning who were both exceptional. Just be aware that the car park gets very busy as it is used by both shoppers and patrons of the Pub/restaurant - as of July 2012 they have made it a Pay and Display so make sure your parking is included.

I have stayed at the Ethorpe many times before and the Hotel has been recently upgraded and now has even better menus and better services such as the cloud for free WIFI. You are also going to get a parking space as guests get a free space as it used to be by train and shoppers who would have to normally pay.

Rooms have been upgraded i personally found the rooms fine but had heard complaints, i have been using for 12+ years and never had an issue.

I always thought it was like living at my mums noting was too much

Room Tip: Rooms at the back on second floor are best for noise

We had a one night stay at the Ethorpe Hotel. It was easy to find and well situated at the end of the town. It is set back from the road with a big hedge along its front, so it's fairly quiet for a town hotel.
The receptionists were welcoming and our room was available immediately. The room looked like it had recently had a makeover, both it and the bathroom were spotlessly clean. The bed was very comfortable and we slept very well.
WiFi was available and was quite fast and secure which we appreciated.
Breakfast was plentiful, with a choice of Continental or full English. However the quality of the croissants was dreadful. They were individually wrapped and they appeared to have microwaved from frozen as they were soggy and tough. A better option for breakfast might be one of the many cafes along the high street just down from the hotel.
There was a good choice of restaurants within walking distance if you didn't want to eat in the hotel. We ate at the Thai Rack which was about 50 metres away.

Stayed here for one night as we were attending a friends party in the area.

The welcome was good and for us the hotel was in a great location.

The room was very spacious and very clean. The decor is dated and the bed wasn't that comfortable. We were allocated a room which was interconnecting to another room. The sound proofing was ridiculous. We may aswell have been in the same room !

We used the restaurant for drinks and the bar before we left. Good enough service but wouldnt eat there.

Nice checkout at the end. Paid a great rate for a very clean room but no wow but tomb fair there honest about what they do and they do it well enough.

Room Tip: Don't get an interconnecting room
