Good Hotel Guide Review
Where an 18th-century pub once stood, this privately owned, rebuilt-from-the-ground-up roadside hotel today has understated rooms, a traditionally styled bar, and an ‘excellent restaurant’ headed by award-winning chef Michael Chapman. ‘Nice, local staff’ welcome guests to the characterful pub (granite, limestone and oak; rustic furnishings; wood-burning stoves); above are modern bedrooms, handsome in cream and grey. Each has comforts such as underfloor heating, air conditioning, and a smart bathroom with a ‘good, strong shower’. ‘Efficient double-glazing keeps out traffic noise from the busy road’, but this is not for walkers from the door (no pavement). Eat inside or on the rear terrace: the locally sourced, seasonal menus are enjoyed. ‘Good choice’ at breakfast. Close to Marlow and Henley-on-Thames.
