The best mix of old and new, this lovely 300-year-old-inn stands right at the gates of Hampton Court. (You can even see into the famous maze from the landing window - great fun watching people getting frustrated!) It has traditional decor and atmosphere but with modern facilities, though unfortunately no air con or lift - it's a listed building! Friendly and helpful staff and lovely meals - both breakfast (full English) and evening meal. Clean,comfortable and spacious room.
More pubs and restaurants (if you want), lovely shops, the station and the river are 10 mins walk away. We were able to park outside the hotel (only 5 bays - choose time of arrival carefully, then park up, otherwise it is on-street pay parking). We wandered round the public areas of the Palace park for free (rose garden, wilderness garden, tiltyard, etc) and also ventured into the elegant Bushy Park directly across the road, where red and fallow deer roam free and you can see a variety of birds and other wildlife.
The following day we strolled round to the Palace itself, arriving early before the crowds, and spent an entire day enjoying the delights of the vast building lived in by so many kings and queens. (see separate review)
Tip: Take advantage of free parking outside hotel - the staff were kind enough to let us park there both before we checked in properly and after we checked out, so we were able to save money.
