Reviewed 22 October 2013 via mobile

Stayed in this quaint hotel, for a family party. The rooms were a little tierd but very clean.The service was exceptional, nothing seemed to be too much for the manager. Bundles of atmosphere and quality hospitality. We will be going back, seems the manager has plans for a refurb! This is one to try if in the area! :-))

Stayed: September 2013, travelled with friends

Attended a private function here recently. Staff very obliging, function area very comfortable and finger buffet very good and plentiful. Parking can sometimes be difficult but we had no problem on this occasion. Not sure what costs were but would recommend it as a venue.

We stayed in this hotel in September 2013 for one night only. It was booked in advance by a member of our family and we were told the hotel with breakfast was about £55.

On arrival we were positively surprised as the hotel is nicely kept in its old style. The rooms are ok but nothing more than really average and some facilities require some attention.

The service we received was very good and so was the breakfast with a very good choice of hot and cold options. Full english breakfast was very good.

The disappointment was the final check out when we were charged £71 for one night in a small room. It was not worth this money, plus we were informed that it would be less. After checking with the person who pre-booked the room for us we went back to reception querying this and we were given back the difference between the price of booking and the price we paid.

Overall the hotel is good for a short stay but only if you pay something between £50-60. For more money I would expect more - like cleaned windows for example...

We stayed at the anchor august 31/1 (party of four )


We stayed here for 2 nights as it was very convenient for sanddown race course (15mins by car)

Nice location in a small square 1 min walk to the thames , the hotel it self is a bit tired and need some tlc that said the staff were very welcoming and attentive I would suggest asking for a room on the back as it can get a bit noisy on the square . the rooms were a bit dated but very clean ,all in all it was a very pleasant stay and will use again next year .

Stayed at the Anchor in June 2012, the hotel/pub was fine and relatively easy to find. Our room was very clean but a bit on the small side but as it was only a base it was perfectly fine. Our room was on the front of the hotel and there was noise from the pub across the road, it didn't affect us but others may prefer a room at the back of the hotel.
didnt eat breakfast therefore unable to comment but the breakfast room was nicely presented and all the staff were very friendly.
Parking could be an issue if there is a function taking place but there is a pay and display car park literally 2 minutes up the road, very handy.
The village of Shepperton is lovely and not far from this hotel you can dine al fresco at the Thames Court Bar restaurant facing the Thames and watching the boats go by, its a beautiful location and I will more than happy to return to this hotel next year.

Room Tip: request a room at the back of the hotel it may be quieter.

We were married in The Anchor Hotel just a week ago and I was so pleased that we chose this venue. Although we weren't in the hotel for very long (our reception was held in the Warren Lodge across the road) everything ran very smoothly. The room we booked for the ceremony was small and intimate, which is exactly what we wanted. Perfect.

Currently staying 9th July & 10th July 13, I paid for a double room and asked for a quiet room. I got room number 9 overlooking the square and the area where everyone drinks and smokes. I barely slept last night , endured noise from square, smoke from clients drinking below, dustman came at 5am. No net curtain , room very small hardly room for 2 people as bed jammed against the shower room wall, bed seen better days. Was this really a single room? rather than a double.
Decor ok, shower room ok, breakfast was fine the cooked ones looked very nice.

Was going to stay next week as well as, working locally,but cancelled as I dont fancy a repeat performance.

Room Tip: Probably arent any really good rooms, try the Premier Inn at Sunbury

I am sorry to hear of the disturbance you experienced during your stay and apologise that we were unable to allocate one of our quieter rooms at the back of the hotel for this particular stay. The hotel does get very busy and therefore we can not always accommodate every request made however we do try wherever possible. Church Square is normally a very quiet place however I know that sometimes there is noise from drinkers outside the pub opposite and I am sorry that this was the case. Thank you for your honest feedback and I do hope you will return again should the opportunity arise in the future.

Kind regards
