            King size bed;very friendly and efficient bar staff

            On an earlier occasion breakfast was so disappointing we do not have breakfast there anymore

          • Single

            Location adjacent to the River Thames, convenient to pubs and restaurants, nice view from a comfortable room (nice firm bed!)

            Prehistoric tv! Time to upgrade to flat screen TV'S.

          • Group of friends
            7.4

            I loved the gym and pool facilities. Spacious, clean, and relaxing!

            Wireless internet connection in the rooms is very poor. Even if the wired connection is good, if there are two persons in the room, then one person remains without internet. This is particularly annoying for business travellers.

          • Couple

            Excellent food and spa. Lovely promenade on Thames

            At checkin they gave us twin room instead of requested double.

          • Couple

            This hotel was very comfortable and nice overall. The dining area opens out onto a terrace that looks directly down onto the river which is very pretty! There is a lovely walk by the riverside and river cruise boats leave from very close by. The breakfast voucher that can be bought the previous night is better value than buying it on the day, but there is also a cafe right across the road if one wants to go for a cheaper option again.

            I thought the hotel staff should know a bit more about things to do and see in the area and should have flyers and brochures about local attractions etc. I was disappointed that they didn't have vegetarian sausages as mentioned on their breakfast menu.

            That we were greeted by reception staff who seemed genuinely pleased to welcome us. That all staff we met were helpful and happy. As another visitor commented "this is the securist hotel I have stayed in", and we felt comfortable enough not to have to bother with the safe in our room. Also I really like the shampoo and shower gel that you are now using, lovely thick towels too!

            My husband and the noisey air conditioning!!!

            Friendly staff. Good location for station. Nice room.

            No wireless just cable Internet.

            Facilities in room excellent for working, particularly comfortable chair at desk. Plenty of lighting options in room. Shower good. Excellent food/wine (room service menu) and prompt, efficient service. Good breakfast.

            Free parking, our room backed onto the river so views were beautiful

          • Older travelers

            Good Hotel we would guess mainly used for Business people during the week , rooms good modern

            Internet access should be free to all guests Not £5.00 per hour , when we know braodband is cheap, also they would get more occupancy if they did deals on Friday and Saturday Nights

          • Older travelers
            7.8

            It was very clean and comfortable - and a good view of the river Thames

          • Single
            9.6

            The attention given to us by the Reception staff when checking in. Also the quality and comfort of the bed

          • Group of friends
            9.2

            Very comfortable bed, clean room and nice and quiet. Great breakfast. I was able to switch my booking to a double from twin on arrival, and a lovely location.

            My sister and I booked separate rooms with breakfast and didn't know til the morning that we had separate breakfast options.

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            Excellent riverside hotel in good location near all shops and leisure center.

          • Couple
            6.2

            Nice views, comfortable rooms, good lounge & bar area.

            Unfortunately, we were not impressed with the cleanliness of our room. Although there were other family members staying too in much cleaner rooms so we may have been unlucky. Dirty mugs & hairs left on the sheets (not ours!) Breakfast was not of a great standard. Bad scrambled egg & lack of awareness from staff with not receiving your tea & coffees at the beginning of breakfast.
