Not a bad hotel, fairly clean. Staff good. Breakfast basic but edible. Extractor fan in bathroom noisy but door shut stops noise. As stream runs under hotel it can be noisy if room near reception. Price reasonable, pub opposite (White horse) excellent.

After staying at various Best Western hotels in the past. The Watermill has been the most enjoyable stay. the rooms were very clean. Great location for Harry Potter studios. All the staff were very helpful and gave service with a smile.

We booked this hotel for a family of 4 to go to the Warner Brothers Harry Potter Studio Tour and it is a perfect place to stay, not too far away. Plenty of parking, friendly helpful staff and clean accommodation. Breakfast was fresh and plentiful. Overall great stay! Great pub meal opposite too.

BW Watermill Hotel is situated in Bourne End, close to the A41. It has a small river running through and you can in some 10 min walk along the Grand Union Canal. Surprisingly nice area. The rooms and beds are generally good and the bar menu is affordable and the quality of the food is OK. I had issues with the service at the breakfast - I was busy and had no time to wait to have coffe and toast served. In my room there was an issue with the radiator (could not be shut - so quit hot). Furthermore you may have to park up at the meadow - but it is only an issue if you arrive late or the hotel is very busy. Based on my last visit I have to report this evaluation but the general standard of the service is usually better.
