Location is excellent (the hotel is situated in a nice park on the bank of the river), the main railway station is within walking distance (you just have to walk along the main street of Teddington), but you can easily take a cab if you wish to.
I spent one week in the hotel (it was a business trip), and there are mostly good memories I can remember. Staff is extremely helpful, friendly and polite - I think this can be put as an example for more highly positioned hotels.
The room was all right, neither too spacious nor small, but it was clean and I could sleep well, that was good after a long day in the office. Bar was always full of local people, food was good and reasonably priced.
It was Internet access that was a major disappointment. Never have I stayed in a hotel where access to online resources was so restricted: I was not able to connect even to my company VPN, which I needed badly. Although reception was extremely responsive and helpful, and even if IT tried to assist, they did not seem to be of help: so if you need heavy online presence I would not recommend the place.
For families or couples - it can be a recommended place to stay though.
