Initial caveat : I'm a member at the Lensbury, so this review is not from the perspective of a hotel guest.
Overall the club is excellent - there's a good-sized gym that never gets packed in the same way some of the commercial gyms do. The newly-refurbished terrace area and the outdoor seating areas are an oasis of peace and quiet - the nosiest interruption is the river going over the weir. The food at the club is possibly its only weak point - it's certainly not poor, but sometimes lacks sophistication. There are good facilities for kids for both hotel guests and members, which can give bored offspring something to amuse them if necessary. The bar area is very conservative, bordering on old-fashioned. The location is a little out-of the-way : Teddington high street and the station are about 10 mins slow walk, but there is a shuttle bus at peak times to/from the station, mainly used by conference delegates. The Spa area is somewhat utilitarian, but the treatments are good value and professionally delivered. The club has a refurbishment strategy over the next few years which will improve some of the weaker points, but as it stands today the Lensbury is still an attractive option.
