We stayed at the Row Barge Inn for a quiet night away in Henley. It was well located just off the town square and we parked in the large car park nearby although it is possible to park outside.
We were given a different room from our original booking as the terrible storms had damaged one of the windows so we were put in a room at the front of the Inn. It was very cosy and warm with a great memory foam bed. The only downsides were that the sign outside the Inn creaked rather a lot in the wind so was quite loud when trying to sleep but would only be an issue in terrible weather, I think we were just unlucky! The ensuite was also quite small with not much privacy from the bedroom.
However, breakfast was very nice and staff were very friendly and helpful and made no fuss finding us a different room from our original booking due to weather issues. Overall a nice welcoming place to stay far enough away from the square that you are not woken up by the local market being set up or people coming out of pubs and restaurants in the evening and the noise from the pub below didn't bother us.
