We visited over a bank holiday and whilst we appreciated that the hotel was out of Windsor we thought as it was on the River we would try it. I rang to explain we would be arriving early and would be happy to wait for the room but could we use the facilities. Yes that wasn't a problem, so we introduced ourselves on arrival and went to sit in the beautiful gardens. After check in time we thought we would go to the bedroom freshen up and have a long walk to the town. The room still wasn't ready and apparently we were in a queue !!!!!! We gave it another 30 minutes and returned to reception and we were still in a queue. Not a good word to use and having in mind we had been there since 11am you would have thought we were top of the queue. The problem was resolved by a lovely young gentleman behind reception and we were upgraded free of charge.
The room is old fashioned and wasn't overly clean, I had to remove the hairs in the bath and sink which were still in the plug hole.
We didn't try the food as we thought it was a little over priced and instead went to Windsor and Bray Marina.
Lovely position and lovely walks but I wasn't overly impressed with the reception staff they did let the hotel down. If I went back to Windsor I would definitely be staying elsewhere.
The breakfast staff were lovely and so helpful. Breakfast was yummy too.
The unfortunate thing was that we wouldn't consider if for a wedding venue now either !
