We stayed between Xmas and new year and it was a well deserved break. We had a great day in Henley and then made the 10 mile journey to Moulsford. We were greeted and made welcome, shown to room 1 (only 3 rooms in delightful cottage). Room was cosy, lovely big bed, plenty of storage for clothing the decor is traditional so don't expect modern, it all is in keeping with the property. This room had deep roll top bath which was very restful to bathe in. Dinner was a delight, spoiled for choice, both eating areas are terrific and in the day time right on the river. I thoroughly recommend you try this place.

We used a living social voucher on this hotel as we were in Oxford for an event. This is one of the best places we have ever stayed. The boat house has been lovingly refurbished to an extremely high standard. The bed was big and comfortable and the bathroom was spacious with a deep, luxurious roll top bath, heaven. We had a set price lunch which was delicious and excellent value.............and the breakfast was stunning, we were the only people staying ( there is only 3/4 bedrooms) but this did not deter the staff from treating us like royalty. The setting is so peaceful with ducks and mallards wandering around. There is also a small pub attached but we had no problem with noise, it was just so peaceful. This is a place to stay you will remember long afterwards and I have no problem recommending it. Well done to the staff, I kinda wished we had missed out the Oxford visit as it was a night mare to park and all the peaceful feelings the hotel created disappeared as we tried to park the car for more then 2 hours! Thank you Beetle for a wonderful stay.

Room Tip: we stayed in room 1 and it was beautiful with the roll top bath, very quite, good mattress. Plenty o...

We stayed for one night break after seeing the sights in Oxford.
Rooms were comforrtable, tea/coffee in the room with plenty of biscuits to go with these.
Booked a meal for the evening knowing this was down by the riverside so thinking there would not be much around the area to walk to a night. The meal was lovely and good value and the staff very friendly. We had a lovely stay and would go again.
Thanks

The location was the first reason I chose this place but it turned out to be a place I would revisit. The location was great, the river Thames was exciting, and the restaurant was just right for what we were looking for. We would reccommend this place highly. Peaceful

After staying here and dining way back in 1993 on a work trip from Australia I had long hope that I would get the opportunity to return one day with my wife. The opportunity presented itself this year, 20 years later, and as a bonus we were able to also bring our daughter. We were not disappointed! We had a delightful lunch. Of course the setting is magnificent, but the food and service were even better than I had remembered. The dining room had been extended and we managed to get a table looking over the river where we could watch the boats on the river. All in all the lunch was a real highlight of our 2 month long holiday.

We stayed at the Beetle and Wedge overnight for my partners birthday. The room was lovely and the food in the restaurant was excellent. This is a perfect place to just get away from it all and have some down time. It's ideally located on the River Thames and you can just stroll for miles. Would highly recommend staying and eating here.

We couldn't have chosen a better venue for our daughter's wedding reception. Guests commented on the wonderful location and delicious food. Klip the boat was also very popular. Charlotte made the planning a pleasure and took care of everything, even recommending a great magician and giving us local taxi numbers. As a result the reception was very enjoyable. We also stayed the night and rooms and breakfast were very good too.
