Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Took part in a triathlon at Dorney Lake. It's a brilliant facility, the course is fantastic, but the lack of additional l pedestrian accss is frustrating, particularly on event days.

I chose my accommodation, based on the proximity to Dorney Lake, which was situated opposite.

Less than 100 metres, from where I was staying, there was a gated enterance/exit, from there, it would have been a half a mile walk to the visitors centre, but the gate to be lacked.. I was later informed that only Eton staff/students have the codes to the gates.

Instead, of what should have been a 10 minute walk ended up being a journey of nearly 4 miles, in a taxi, costing £13!

Took my son to a triathlon.

Spectacular venue which was used in the 2012 Olympics.

Spent most of my time outside, but this was OK as the weather was fine.

I had a company offsite meeting a this venue, and WOW! It is truly spectacular. The view is indescribable, both in the early morning hours and at sunset. The staff was lovely, and the space is great for a company offsite/team building event. I would highly recommend.

The fact that neither of our parents could have afforded the high cost of Eton School Fees did not marr our enjoyment of the facilities

We were in the area and felt it would be a good place to walk. The area is very quiet, not much going on, but we did see some interesting birds. There aren’t many places to sit on the walk we did stop by the visitor centre where there was a van selling coffee etc. Not sure where the toilets were as not a great deal of signage. On the walk there is an interesting sculpture marking the project itself, donated by the gravel extraction company. It was a grey day on our visit, I think it would be even better on a sunny day.

Aside from the cyclists dodging this is a lovely place to walk the dog and sit in the sunshine. Unfortunately it is currently closed to the public but hopefully will open soon.

Scenic location with miles of walking around the lakes. Historic and great for birdlife. Must be delightful in summer. Tip: great for sunsets! Stand to view by the finishing line and clubhouse.

The idea was to go there and walk along the lake. Well, at - degrees C with the easterly wind blowing across the water, our three layers were quickly found to be inadequate, so we beat a hasty retreat to the car. A quarter of an hour for £2.50 car park - only all day available! it's little wonder how few there were there - and they were mainly dog walkers. Could be good for a picnic or letting the kids run wild, but the College does not appear interested in promoting it and anxious for it not to get soiled. Better off to visit Dorney Court - when open - and the Garden Centre with free parking and a nice cafeteria.

Great to walk around the lake if you want to avoid any mud after the rains! Good wide paths, open views, enormous rowers cafe half way round.
