“Good quality accommodation”
Reviewed 11 August 2013

Agree with previous reviewers. Good quality accommodation that is serviced daily. Rooms have tv and ensuit. Good quality breakfast as well every day. Perfect for 24hr access while visiting the campus. You may need to go further afield for dinner as the campus diner is average at dinner.

Reviewed 12 June 2013

I stayed here for professional reasons, I needed a nearby place to crash whenever work gave me a break. 3 intensive working days. The room smelled new, was spacious enough and clean. The bathroom is small but pratical. I missed the heating, it was unusually cold for the season and no extra blankets provided. Very little mobile network reception. Poor wifi too.
Breakfast was mostly english and fast food like. Definitely a minus in an otherwise pleasant stay.

I stayed here for a night for a trip to RAL (Harwell Science Campus). It's a newish hotel - like a Holiday Inn or similar, as others have said - with well-maintained rooms and a good breakfast. Very comfortable bed.

I stayed here for one night when visiting the Rutherford Laboratory. I would stay here again. The rooms are a good size and are very clean and well maintained. The breakfast is quite comprehensive and of good standard

You need to buy a voucher for wireless access, but Ethernet internet access within each room is free.

Staff were welcoming and helpful, there is a lounge area which can be used if you are waiting for meetings etc.

I stayed in Ridgeway House for a week while in a conference at the Harwell Campus. This hotel usualy houses scientists performing experiments in the facilities of the campus.
Given the usual purpose of this hotel, I was pleasantly surprised with que quality of the room.
Good TFT TV with around 100 channels, Tea&Coffee facilities in room, very good bed.
The English breakfast was good (too fatty for my taste), the continental breakfast was a bit deceptive: missing fresh bread and less fatty pastries.
All in one was a very good value for money.

Room Tip: Get one on the ground floor. Apparently heating was not working on the 1st. Also make sure you close...

Like a holiday inn. Two minutes walk from the space science building. Staff were helpful and friendly. Breakfast was a pretty standard english breakfast fry-up.

This hotel is located on the Harwell campus and therefore the perfect location for working with or visiting people on the Harwell Campus. Make sure you book early as there are limited rooms and it books up quickly.
The rooms are a good size and the decor is like that of a modern Premier Inn. Full length black our blinds, FreeView TV and Free Internet access.
Breakfast is included and very good it is too, from a full English to croissant and cheese, no problems here. They have started to run an evening meal menu as well recently.
Certainly a great place for business.
