The hotel is a mix of new and old. The executive rooms are situated in what was an old mill. The standard rooms are in the newer more hotel like bit.
One of the nice things about the Moat House is that it has it's own excellent pub 'the Poachers Inn' situated towards the back of the hotel accessed over a small bridge (watch out for traffic) the food & drink is great here and you can add it to your room tab.
Standard rooms are your general hotel type not unlike any other large hotel. Executive rooms are slightly better finished. Rooms can be noisy from slamming doors etc as can the air conditioning.
Food is of a good standard with 'meal deals' if you are on a budget.
Breakfast is in the form of an all you can eat buffet serving the 'Full English', fruit, cheese, pastries and good quality coffee! Somewhat Disappointingly there were no croissants on my last visit. However the breakfast at the Moat House is fulfilling and of a good quality.
There are two disabled spaces right outside the front of the hotel but cannot understand the location of the other disabled parking in the general car park a fair distance away!
We have used this hotel as a base to take the kids to legoland, Harry Potter Studio and trips into London.
Legoland is only half an hour away but can take an hour on a Saturday and Sunday if traffic builds up.
The Harry Potter Studio is an easy 45 minute drive via the M4 & M25
Again the hotel is only half an hour away from Hounslow West tube station where an adult day rider ticket is £9 (much cheaper than a train from Reading or Slough) it has a large car park to boot that at the time of writing is free on a Sat and Sun!
Summing up the Moat House is a good hotel with excellent service from attentive staff. Ideally situated for your days out and about. But take your ear plugs if you are a light sleeper!
