We stayed in a suite in June. The room was exceptional with two roll-top baths (one indoor, one outdoor) and a terrific shower. The bed was very comfortable and the room was generally peaceful. We had dinner which was good but not to the standard of previous meals I have had at HdVs.
The main reason this receives an average rating is for the price the HdV misses out on some important details that you would expect to be covered, namely:
- On check in we weren't even asked if we would like our bags to be taken. I usually carry my own bags but not to be asked was odd especially as we were stating two floors up with no lift. This is just a basic detail.
- I would expect a turn-down service for the price
- Limited options for breakfast in bed. If you want any form of cooked breakfast you have to eat downstairs. Again for the price I would expect breakfast in bed to be an option.
I would also echo the comments about the £15 parking service. Given that the HdV in Winchester, a city that is less parking friendly than Henley, has free onsite parking I would expect parking to be free.
We had a very enjoyable and comfortable stay but just think HdVs are poor value for money, therefore this will be the last time for the forseeable future we will be staying with them.
