Stayed here for 2 nights during Henley Week. From the moment we arrived, I felt completely at home. Enjoyed a bottle of chilled wine sitting in the beautiful garden near the fountain: so relaxing. We had George III suite and it lived up to its royal name: free standing bath, huge walk in rain forest shower as well. Our suite had a real touch of Tudor about it, and I was completely charmed. As well as the large comfortable bed - didn't want to leave [either the hotel or the bed!] we had a large flat screen tv, slippers and bath robes. We ate in the bar area the first night. Food excellent, except the "shortbread" that accompanied the crème brulee [the only disappointment I have to say}. The menu is changed regularly and a very good choice was on offer whilst we were there. I had pork with red cabbage and sweet potato puree, my partner had rib eye all top class. Caroline Shone is the proprietor of this charming country inn and I wasted no time in letting her know how delightful this place is, as well as a good friendly team who were relaxed but 100% efficient. Breakfast is possibly the best I have ever eaten at a hotel and consisted of fresh ingredients and a very good range to choose from. I have no doubt that I will be returning to this wonderful place. Top marks from me!
