Like many of the other reviewers, we booked 3 nights at this hotel through a groupon deal. After reading the reviews we were not sure what to expect...but what a pleasant surprise!
We were met at reception by a very polite and helpful guy named Oliver (he is also barman, waitor and anything else that is asked of him!), who also booked us in for dinner that evening. Ok, so the rooms could do with some updating (which they are currently in the process of doing) but it was clean and pleasant and very quiet considering its location on the main Bath Rd. The food was excellent with very generous portions, we dined there 2 out of our 3 nights, and the breakfast was lovely and cooked to your liking (i.e. scrambled or fried eggs, 1 or 2 sausages or bacon...)
The staff were absolutely fantastic, nothing being too much trouble. For example, my husband does not drink wine so for our free bottle included with the groupon I had a small bottle and my husband had a different drink from the bar to make up for it. They were friendly and helpful, giving advice on the local area with things to see and do. We had a fabulous day in Henley-on-Thames due to a reccommendation from the manager, Lisa.
The hotel is in a wonderful location giving access to lovely places such as Henley, Windsor and Reading.
A big shout out and a massive thankyou to Oliver, Anne, Carl and manager Lisa (who is doing a wonderful job), who helped us to have a truly relaxing and lovely mini-break :o)
