We stayed for 2 nights in order to spend a full day at Legoland and see a bit of Windsor too. Our accommodation was in the hotel's apartments, very close by - great location, albeit with a view onto a car park. The apartment building smelled of paint and dust, although this wasn't evident in the room. Good to have apartment facilities but to fit a family of 4 in was a squeeze, with a single sofa bed and an added camp bed. The bathroom wasn't great, with a leaking cistern and a toilet seat that didn't stay up for the gentlemen in the family. And worst of all we found a used cotton bud on the carpet next to the bin under the desk.
The welcome in reception was great, but I was told that their car park was full (best value in that case was to park at the train station). We were shown out to the terrace bar on arrival which was indeed impressive with a relaxing position straight onto the Thames. Unfortunately when we returned for evening drinks we sat at a table for half an hour without being served so gave up.
In all a disappointing experience for the price paid, it seems to be a hotel that thrives based only on an excellent location and a lack of alternatives.
