Great place to stay if you want to get out of London. We get the train into the city one day, but can enjoy all Twickenham, Teddington or Hampton have to offer another day. Great hotel, with parking and a superb breakfast. Simply gorgeous views over the last tidal part of The Thames.

Great hotel. Comfortable, clean, welcoming and very well located (especially for Twickenham). Lovely big bed, nice room although not the largest I've ever stayed in. Great buffet breakfast. Highly recommended.

A very welcoming, comfortable hotel. Quick check-in, good bar area with a great atmosphere. Rooms are very comfortable, great rain shower. Full spa facilities. Would I stay here again, yes. I would have given this hotel a 5 out of 5 but for one thing...... Why would you choose to clean the coffee machine at 10pm on a Saturday night,...

I have been fortunate to visit the Lensbury before (my brother works for Shell) It is now run independently most changes for the better sports facilities, rooms and the food. It has lost some of its charm but is still frequented by old and newer employees. What will never change is its fantastic location next to the thames walking, cycling,...

Based here for a 2 day conference, and having been here many times when the building was part of the Shell Oil company, I was a little intrigued as to how this had morphed into a hotel. You really cannot fault the location, right on the Thames, next to Teddington Lock, with spacious grounds and leisure facilities every where you...
