We stayed on a 2 night Groupon deal, and were delighted with what we found. An imaginative bar/restaurant/hotel, and it would score well on any of the three styles.
We stayed in room 1, which had access to a lovely garden area through a French door. It would be lovely in the summer, although a bit nippy in March. Although the room is to the front, we weren't aware of any excessive noise. We maybe sleep better than we think we do. The bed was soft and comfy for me although my wife prefers a firmer mattress, but, hey, she slept pretty well too. The room was spotless, with a choice of teas and the shower room had a range of nice toiletries, although I agree that the shower couldn't be described as "powerful"
Good wines on offer in the restaurant and the menu was imaginative with the S African influence making it that wee bit different. I don't think the chef is the greatest chef in the country, but he/she's not as bad as some are reporting. I thought that the staff were professional and efficient, and not at all "poncey" which I appreciate.
The negatives........the radiator wasn't working in the room, but a heater was quickly delivered as a stop gap, and I think the rodent traps might be a placed a bit more discreetly on the pathways to the room.
I wouldn't think twice about booking again, a wonderful base for Henley, Marlow, Oxford etc etc.
Well done to the owners and management, their imagination makes this hotel that bit different to other establishments in the same price bracket, and all the better for it too.
