“Brilliantly Looked After”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2014

We came down as a family of 11 to a wedding nearby to Henley where the hotel concerned that were hosting the reception were most unaccommodating to our needs.

Basically we needed a double room for my wife and myself for three nights, a family room for our eldest son his wife two children 7 and 4 and baby two months old, also for three nights, and a family room for our youngest son, his wife and two children aged 6 and 2 for just the one night.

The other hotel had been most unhelpful stating that my eldest son would need adjoining rooms - at an appropriate cost - for their stay for 'Elf & Safety' reasons. A call to Sharan at the Henley Hotel quickly booked three appropriate rooms - ours was upgraded to the Shakespeare Suite, our eldest son was given the Chamberlain Suite - all very easily, efficiently and politely within minutes with nary a mention of the dreaded 'Elf' and, equally importantly, competitive prices.

Our stay at the Henley Hotel was really comfortable and pleasant - we used it as a base to explore old haunts in the Cotswolds - something which was enhanced by the lovely and pleasant staff who looked after us fantastically. On this occasion we only ate in the hotel on one evening but the food and service were of first class standard.

We will be returning to the Midlands in September to see the wedding photos and you can be sure that we will be staying at the Henley Hotel.

Room Tip: The Chamberlain Suite for a family has plenty of room

Stayed here with my family as a last minute booking. We needed a hotel for the night and after we had explained our circumstances to the member of staff, they couldn't have done more for us. Two rooms were held for us and we used both for one night. I cannot fault the staff who were considerate, helpful and did everything they could to make our time there as easy as possible. The rooms were lovely - everything had been finished to the highest of standards and the tea and coffee making facilities were the best I've seen. The bathrooms were a good size with a great shower. Really thankful to the staff at this hotel for providing us with a much needed, comfortable and excellent quality room for the night.

Adequate but nothing special. Room very small and wasn't upgraded (as should have been with a Best Western reward card), even though they weren't busy. Breakfast adequate but rushed. Internet on reception computer very slow. Good location - Henley very pleasant, good museum, excellent (cheap and cheerful) fish restaurant just down the road! Why does this review site not have a category of Good between Average and Very Good?

Thank you for taking the time to wright a review for our hotel.

Your satisfaction is important to us and nothing is more important than our guest’s feedback. Unfortunately the size of our rooms is something we cannot alter and we do try to upgrade our Best Western reward guests but occasionally it does occur that we’re not always aware that our guests are rewards members.

I sincerely apologise that you felt breakfast to be rushed, it is not our intention to make our guests feel that way. Breakfast does finish at 9 but we usually don’t clear away until 9:30 giving our guests plenty of time to sit and enjoy, I realise that this must not have been the case during your stay and I can only apologise for this and I will speak to staff to ensure this is not repeated.

On a positive note, I do hope overall you enjoyed your stay with us and I can agree with you that Henley is a lovely picturesque village, well worth the visit. We do hope we’ll be seeing you staying with us again.

Sincerely,
Sharan Cook
Hotel Manager

A modest, comfortable hotel with superb staff. We had a very laid-back and restful two nights here. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. We would certainly come back. Could have paid a lot more money and done far worse.
