Stayed here a couple of times now and its a great place to stay, rooms are spacious and well kept and the breakfast is great, though a bit too much vinegar in my poached egg! Location is great close to river and a free car park is always handy...would stay again but they get booked up so quickly

I booked s table on line which was straight forward however be warned on busy nights it seems they have the dreaded 2 hour sitting. This did not affect us as it was a quiet night for sinning with everyone away for Easter. A pleasing menu however disappointed with the burger in that the prices don't represent the presentation of...

Stopped over the night before a conference at Twickenham. Nice location right opposite the river, but on a busy road. The room was nice with a comfy bed, nice shower and overall clean and tidy. There is very limited parking at the front, but wasn't made aware of underground parking?! It wasn't well signed or maybe I just missed it?...

Stayed at the Alexander Pope for the Six Nations match (Eng V Italy) on a Sunday evening (only a 20 minute walk form the stadium) We arrived mid morning as I expected it to get busy given it has limited parking spaces in an underground car park (30 places) and half a dozen in front of the hotel. This was...

We arrived on a very busy day, just before the England v Italy game, even so, we were made to feel very welcome and allowed to leave our bags prior to checking in later. Ideally located on the Thames, the hotel was half an hour walk from Twickenham. After arriving we sample a quick bevy and burger in the garden...

I stayed here overnight for a business meeting as it's in such a convenient location. The rooms are modern with a twist of traditional. Bed was very comfortable and amazing rain shower. Restaurant food scrummy and well presented. Morning receptionist was lovely and forgave me for dying their white towels red with hair dye. We all agreed this would be...

We stayed for 6 nights and have no complaints. Without exception the staff, mainly young and enthusiastic, were attentive, polite and efficient. Very comfortable beds and well appointed facilities. We asked for a quite room and were situated on the upper floor with a small window which helped to lessen the traffic noise. Useful gated car park for security much...
