“An excellent weekend!”
Reviewed 9 October 2013 via mobile

We stayed at the Lensbury for a weekend in September to spend a day at Sandown races. We had a great stay. A beautiful setting beside the Thames with plenty of bars and cafes nearby. Breakfast was lovely, excellent service and friendly staff. We would definitely stay at the Lensbury again

Thank you for your kind comments about The Lensbury following your recent stay with us. I am pleased you enjoyed your visit for the Sandown races. The Lensbury is ideally placed for visiting the attractions of Hampton Court, Richmond, Twickenham and Esher with plenty of local bars and restaurants nearby too as you mentioned. We are fortunate to have a beautiful riverside location which is especially enjoyable in the summer when you can sit outside for meals and drinks.

We do hope you will be back to visit us again soon.

Best regards

Food average and bad value for the price - better food and value up the high street.
Staff pretty good but let down by the menu which is less than sparkling.
Could be a gold mine and once was but need to up their game as the competition has.
Sports facilities are excellent but main sports bar lacks any atmosphere - like a dressed up lounge

I have been there several times for business meetings. It is a relaxing place at a short drive from London Hathrow ( 20 mins ) and half an hour train journey from Central London. Ideal for business meetings and conferences.
Rooms are very small but with all comforts, clean and well decorated. Free wi fi everywhere.
Park and sport facilities are excellent.
Food is very basic - but this may depend from the event organiser budget.

Thank you for your review of The Lensbury following your recent stay with us. We are very proud of our conference facilities and have just been officially recognised with an AIM Gold award for excellence in meetings. We know that some of our bedrooms are a little on the small size compared with some you have stayed in, but we believe they are comfortable, clean and convenient especially when attending a conference.
Our leisure facilities which include pool, gym, watersports and tennis, make us a very popular destination for sports fans. I hope you managed to make use of them whilst you were here.

We do hope you visit us again soon and look forward to welcoming you back.

Best regards

Lovely room with a generous bathroom. Wonderful coffee machine and fabulous shower!
Bed was comfortable, and we had access to extra cushions and pillows.
We will be returning to use the facilities here as we did not have enough time during our stay this time around.

Arrived late (12.45am) and was warmly greeted by a (German?) lady receptionist who was efficient at booking me in and directing me to the room. Breakfast in the conservatory was delicious and the business centre was really impressive- modern, facilities excellent and service fabulous. A really great place for a stay and a meeting with all of the facilities you would expect from a 4* hotel.

Room Tip: Booked a room late and had a single but even this was plenty big enough for one occupancy.

We stayed here after our nephews wedding. It's in a nice spot near Teddington Lock, lovely grounds and excellent sports facilities. The breakfast was really good. In particular the staff at this hotel were excellent.

We wanted to have a quiet, relaxed three days with our son and his wife, and our daughter, so we booked three rooms at the Lensbury in July/August. It was the perfect venue. The value for money was excellent - beautiful gardens, a lovely building, lots to do, excellent breakfast, and lots more. Our executive room was spacious and I loved the Nespresso machine and complimentary capsules. The bed was very comfortable although I thought at first that it would be too soft (I have severely herniated discs). I will definitely stay there again.
