      The location was great as we were dining at the Fat Duck. The grounds of the hotel were very pretty but the room comfort was very poor. We stayed in room number 8 and in my opinion the mattress needs replacing. My husband and I did not have a comfortable nights sleep.

      Location staff room views no cars close to hotel tranquility in grounds peacefulness

      Bedroom not well layed out bed light switch can not be reached from bed (to high and to far apart) no mirror in bedroom windows were hard to open due to paint work no main light in bedroom making the room to dark with just the very small wall lights to dress by. Room 15

      We were on a boating holiday, so Thames-side location was important. It's a very beautiful place.

      Only that I like mushrooms for breakfast, and they weren't available!

      The countryside setting is idyllic. An Island in the thames with a history. The original buildings erected by the Duke of Malborough have been preserved and incorporated into the hotel. Peacocks, a flock of Canada geese and swans add to the charm of the well tended landscape that includes many mature trees of different kinds.

      This is not really a complaint but the presense of so much wildlife has a down side. You have to watch were you put your feet. The hotel staff nake an effort to keep the paths and lawns clear but the job is never ending.

      It was a very unique building and the grounds were very pretty. The breakfast was lovely, enjoyed the real sausages very much. It is in a great location. Overall a very pleasant experience.

      The room was a bit tired and the bath didn't drain properly but apparently the hotel is gradually being refurbished. Even though the room was supposedly a 'deluxe' I would have called it a very standard room.

      The location on Monkey Island itself is terrific, very picturesque (it's not used as a favoured wedding location for nothing), down to the peacocks and honking geese. The surroundings are quiet, staff very friendly, and helpful (for example, the receptionist searched and printed out maps for me when I asked for directions to a nearby town, and they rushed to assist us when I locked my key in the room). Breakfast is also English-style and excellent, with combination of cooked and cold items, an friendly service. Valet service to and from the car park (2-3minute walk) was also efficient. Will certainly be glad to return here if I am to be in the area again.

      Seems to be undergoing some renovation on first floor at present (May 2011), and stairs carpet quite threadbare. Wi-Fi did not reach my room. This does not really detract from the overall very positive impression of this hotel.

      The grounds were really nice, the receptionist friendly and the room is quite large, very clean, with a good working area/desk. Breakfast was included, and a good selection, with friendly waiting staff.

      The room had no air conditioning and was hot, so I had to leave the window open all night.The bed was not comfortable and I was kept awake by the peacocks who crowed all night (made worse by the open window). Was looking forward to the move the following night to another hotel to get a good night's sleep.

      The setting is very nice and handy for Bray village

      Didn't find the bed all that comfortable

      Great location. Close to bray for restaurants. Very helpful and friendly staff. Great setting.

      Very tired hotel compared to modern boutique style hotels. Stayed in a refurbished room, but overall quality of finishings was low.

      Balcony doors were not locked, we discovered this after our return later in the evening.

      The remote location. It was quiet but not in the middle of nowhere. Friendly staff

      Sometimes the toilet didnt flush properly, took a few tries.

      I loved the location of this beautiful country retreat. Very secluded, with access only via a footbridge. However a porter was expecting us on arrival with a large umbrella (it was drizzling) and carried our luggage across to the Hotel. What a service! My written wishes for a room were taken notice of and we got the most perfect room in the whole hotel. Quiet, with wonderful views of the Thames and the park. It had just recently been renovated and was completly newly furnished.Very nice and modern style! The spacious balcony went right onto the river with boats passing by directly below our bedroom. Had the weather been nicer, we would have spent all evening out there. I can't think of a room with a nicer view anywhere!

      The breakfast was very basic, without any care in the preperation or presentation. For the hotel to get a higher rating, this would have to improve vastly. Even though the room had just recently been done up, the windows have yet again been overpainted so they couldn't be opened. Because many guests have complained about this before, I can't understand why the windows and the doors weren't replaced as part of the renovation.

      Checking out. No working shower for 3 days. Had to wash hair in the bath with a jug. Cancelled 2 colleagues rooms despite checking with the hotel the night before that all 5 rooms were ok. Room was awful and heat did not work. Our Company will never stay here again. No manager available to speak too-Disaster and they say they get £150 a room when busy. Compensation was £40 for no shower for 3 days.
