Hotel looks five star from outside so very much a plus point. Inside, comfortable bedroom and public rooms. Only low point was very slow service when bar/restaurant that wasn't that busy however Friendly staff throughout.

Dear Worldwide820

Thank you for providing your feedback following your short stay with us.

The hotel from inside and outside certainly looks amazing - "five star", thank you for also recognising my team members, being "friendly" is great feedback, we just needed to be a bit quicker for your needs when required, this is something we all take on board and have learned from your feedback - thank you for taking the time to let me know how your stay went for you.

Have just returned from this stunning hotel with its gorgeous views! It was so relaxing just sitting by the river watching the various types of boats go by! We arrived on our wedding anniversary and as well as the glass of champagne on arrival we also had a bottle on ice in our room...a really nice touch! The room was lovely and spacious but was uncomfortably warm at times due to the air cooling control not working though a fan was provided which only helped a bit as the weather was very warm. The bathroom was stifling as the heated towel rail was on automatically a lot and, as is the norm in hotel bathrooms, there was no window for fresh air! The food in the main restaurant was pricey and not really suited to our taste but what we had (the sirloin) was cooked perfectly. We loved the bar menu for choice. The breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice. The staff are extremely attentive and friendly and made our stay very enjoyable. We are hoping to do it all again next year!

What a wonderful stay we had at the end of May at The Oakley Court. The hotel staff are amazing. My son had a medical need and nothing was too much trouble for any of them trying to assist us. We were staying to visit Legoland Windsor and the reservation staff member Alistar did all he could to find out if he could help us at Legoland by ringing them.
The grounds and the room were fantastic.
Working in the travel industry myself I am very critical of hotels but this one is just truely wonderful and will definately be returning.

I am delighted that Alistair was able to assist you and your family while you were staying with us, I understand that your Son had a wonderful time, especially at LEGOLAND!

I look forward to you all returning soon, maybe next time consider the Warner Bros Harry Potter World, this is another great day out for the whole family nearby to the hotel.

I organised a conference at the hotel last November and I received nothing but good feedback from our attendees. The hotel is a really impressive building, it has lots of character and the grounds are beautiful to walk round (particularly at sunrise).

The conference facilities are of a high standard and includes everything you could want.
Coffee and biscuits were delicious and at lunch and dinner food was plentiful.
Staff were attentive and always on hand to help.
All in all we had a great time and are even looking into holding future events here.

My wife and I spent a night here recently; it is a lovely setting right on the River but we found Dinner to be disappointing - rather a fussy uninteresting menu.

In all other ways an excellent hotel with friendly and helpful staff.

This hotel has undergone major renovation and been brought back to it's former glory. We originally chose this place as it was the setting for numerous movies including Dracula and Rocky Horror Picture Show. (We actually stayed here during the annual Rocky reunion which we found very entertaining as some of the guests were dressed as characters from the film!) We got to stay in the room with the angled windows and gargoyles, which had a four poster canopy bed, fireplace, built in wardrobes, and old fashioned bath fixtures - along with internet and television access. Food here was delicious and a large breakfast buffet is served. The grounds are absolutely gorgeous with the Thames River running along side. There is also an indoor pool available. Definitely at the top of my list as one of my favorite places to stay in Europe.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the rooms in the original castle as they have the most character.
