8/10 Very good

Lovely stay
It was our 1st stay here. Managed to park onsite. Lovely quiet location opposite the river. Nice outdoor seating area. Pub / resturant had good vibe nicely done. The building is old but well maintained inside and out. Our room was nice and quiet with usual things you find in a hotel room -cant complain and the bath towels were nice and thick. We ate in the pub on the 1st night both had burger and chips which we didnt find that nice and was expensive. Breakfast was good but no cereals available. Would stay here again . Good base to get into central London with fast regular trains. ( approx 15mins walk to station)

Great stay 😊
The room we booked was great but my partner loves a bath. Rachel who checked us in looked at availability and was able to upgrade us to a gorgeous room with a bath. The room was lovely with views over the river. We are locals so know how lovely this area is. The free breakfast was also great, loved the authentic produce. Service was a bit erratic though. In all a great staycation, thank you x
