    Superb

    The staff were all very helpful and friendly. Even though the hotel is on a busy road and roundabout the soundproofing is excellent. I enjoyed using the spa facilities especially.

    Superb

    The staff were pleasant and our room was very good and clean. The location by the river Thames was super, especially on a glorious day. The swimming pool was excellent. The breakfast was good - particularly the variety of nuts, seeds and fruit.

    We thought the bar area could have been a little more inviting.

    Fabulous

    Excellent location, ample parking, friendly, helpful staff, comfortable room, excellent amenities.

    Shower head was broken on arrival and was not fixed by the time we booked out... so it was impossible to shower... we are not 'bath' people. Drinks at the bar were very expensive (£8.00 for a whiskey and ice).

    Good comfortable rooms within easy reach of the town and with good, secure car parking facilities.

    Having spent time here on previously occasions we new the standard and were pleased to say that they are as good as we expected. The reception staff are very welcoming and this time we had the time to stay for b'fast which was again a stress free experience.

    I do think that the b'fast at the full value is overpriced and that the offer price would be more in enticing if it was the norm rather than offer

    The hotel is on the bank ot the river Thames with great swans. I liked it very much

    It was a little queue on breakfast. And there was only pork from meet (I don't eat it and haven't any choice)

    Fabulous

    It appeared that the hotel was very short staffed during our visit. I think a lot of the staff were off sick. The staff that were working tried very hard to keep things going

    Very good

    The whole hotel was very nice, especially the pool, sauna and jacussi

    Our meat was not cooked enough (still had blood in middle) of the evening meal (Extra charge)

    Superb

    The room is clean and modern. Love the kingsize bed and the size of the room. Room service is of good quality.

    The entrance during reading festival is located at the side, not easy to find.

    This was a very comfortable hotel. Rooms were air conditioned and there were no noise disturbances. Breakfast was excellent. Pool was lovely.

    Fabulous

    The room was clean and the bathroom was very nice. The hotel decor is of a high standard.

    The breakfast service was rather disorganised, and there wasn't a huge amount of choice. The room service menu is very limited after 10 p.m.

    Superb

    We stayed here for a friends wedding the location was fantastic as it was only a 5 minute walk to the venue. Rooms were lovely only thing is that breakfeast is very expensive so we went to the cafe oppisite and it was great and alot cheaper!!!! Also had a nightcap in the hotel bar before bed dont approve with the prices cos us £15 for 2 drinks !!!! But overall perfect for what we needed and had a lovely view of the river.

    Very good

    Well located. Good range of facilities.

    Room allocated was clean and had everything required but was just very small. We requested a double on the booking form but was allocated a twin with no possibility of changing.
