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.
