Hotel with character in perfect position

Posted Jan 25, 2015
Pros: Very reasonable rates considering the standard of service, the location and the quality of the food
Cons: The evening dining room
Location: Sonning is a pretty village adjacent to the Thames. It has a lovely church, an old inn, an Asian restaurant, and it's great for walks along the river
My wife and I stayed at this hotel whilst visiting our daughter, her partner and our new granddaughter. It's situated in Sonning, a village full of charm and character on the banks of the Thames. My wife and I had no trouble locating the hotel, it had plenty of parking, the reception staff were very welcoming and efficient and once we arrived at our room we were pleasantly surprised by it's spaciousness, cleanliness and comfort. It has a 3 star rating, but we think that is an injustice. 4 star at least in our opinion. we breakfasted twice during our stay, once, "full English", and once "continental". Both were delicious and were served in a lovely dining room overlooking the gardens next to the river. We ate dinner on just one evening, and this is where our only negative comment comes in. It was served in a small room at one end of the property on what appeared to be "cafe" type tables. Perhaps they don't get many in for dinner? and consider this room adequate. The food was excellent and the service, superb We would definitely stay here again

Great location

Posted Dec 23, 2014
Pros: Location, size of room, friendly staff
Cons: As often the case in hotels, the cups were not clean - obviously just rinsed out under the tap.
Location: Lovely location, right on the Thames and Thames path
Booked last minute as going to The Mill and didn't want to drive home. Had great room in the Clock Tower. We did worry that it might be noisy as we were next to the lift, but we didn't hear a thing. We only ate breakfast which was good - especially as we sat looking out onto the Thames.

Has so much potential, but...

Posted Aug 27, 2014 on Hotels.com
The hotel has so much potential, but is tired, worn and unimaginatively decorated. The staff were very pleasant & helpful. The food was mediocre, but within easy walking distance The Bull Pub and the French Horn Restaurant have fantastic food and atmosphere. The riverside location of the hotel is great, but the decor & furnishings need to be updated and maintained better. This place could be great, but as it is, it is only just okay.
