Good Hotel Guide Review

‘Sumptuous’ inside and out, Ruth and Samantha Trinder’s refined hotel on the River Thames is in a ‘tranquil spot’ that belies its easy connection to the scramble and dash of London. ‘We felt we were in a luxury version of home, rather than in a fancy hotel.’ Past the unassuming Georgian facade, terraces and lawns at the rear reach down to the river towpath; on sunny days, parasols appear on the green to shade alfresco eaters. Newly refurbished bedrooms, now Scandinavian-stylish in sustainable natural materials, are individually furnished with restored mid-century pieces. The best, and most spacious, have an in-room copper bath and riverside views, but even the most compact double rooms are kitted out with modern amenities including a high-tech audio system with a pre-programmed music library. Join well-heeled locals in the smart restaurant for modern dishes such as cured trout, white asparagus, lovage pesto; in the ‘magnificent bar’, clink cocktail glasses over sweet and savoury snacks and taster plates. At the weekend, borrow one of the hotel’s Pashley bicycles for a turn around nearby Richmond Park, then return for a sophisticated Sunday lunch, served till late.

Guest comments

'Lovely outlook over the river. No traffic noise. Staff were mostly young, foreign and helpful. Very good food, though portions not suitable for rugby players. Poor bedside lighting. ' - JW - March, 2014
'A hidden gem, near enough to London to get all the benefits but far enough away to be tranquil, and with beautiful views of the Thames and surrounding countryside to boot. The interior is sumptuous. The staff couldn't do enough to help. The restaurant has amazing food and one of the best views you could hope for in London. It's not cheap, but the price is completely justified for the experience. ' - MM - September, 2013
