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.
