We booked this hotel for an anniversary break and have previoulsy used Marriott but wanted to try a different chain.
The hotel had a beautiful location, right on the Thames. Upon arrival we were advised that there were two weddings booked during our stay, but our room had been placed far enough away that we would not be disturbed. We could hear every note, every word of every song through to 12.30 am and after a long day out and about did not enable us to get a good night sleep.
The bed was uncomfortable, sheet and blanket as opposed to a duvet - I guess that is personal preference but I am allergic to feathers and therefore my even shorter night sleep was disturbed by sneezing and snuffling.
The bedroom was made up the following morning whilst we were at breakfast, however it was clear the room hadn't been hoovered as there were still bits of mud from our boots the following day on the floor.
On the positive, The food was lovely, breakfast was by order and the poached eggs were just as I like them. The evening meal was also really good and the service attentive but not harrasing.
We have stayed at one other MacDonald Hotel, in Bath and that was breathtaking - the entire ambience as well and food, so expectations were high and they were not met.
If you want a hotel to walk along the River Thames and enjoy the surrounding area then this is perfect, if the weather is good and of course you are attending any funtions in the hotel, but if you are after a quiet break away then it may be worth checking what else is on first.
