The Ten Thousand Year Old Thames

A travel blog entry by kiki-annie


We did little in Marlow because it was cold, windy and raining, but we did maximize the use of our most luxurious hotel room. Soon I'm going to use that big tub. This morning we are getting on a steamer and riding for 4 hours down the Thames to Windsor. The steamer delivers us right at our next hotel, which is also on the Thames. There is a huge …

Day 14: Windsor, Bath, and Stonehenge

A travel blog entry by flahivemo


... ride talking about the queen. Learned that when she travels she brings her own tea. And not just the tea itself, I mean her special tea pot, tea, and English spring water. Talk about "being pampered like a queen". There was hardly any traffic coming home so we made it home a little early which was nice. Had some leftovers for dinner with Em and now it's bedtime because I've got another but tour tomorrow! Really hope it's as good as the one I had ...

Although our stay in Penzance was great, the only downside for me was our toilet and bathroom were across a small passage. They were solely for us and locked but I didn't like the idea of being caught in my pyjamas nicking across the hall. As it turned out this didn't happen. We have been spoilt up till now with en-suites. After another cooked breakfast we headed off to St Michael's Mount, only a 5 min drive away. This ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Sir Christopher Wren Hotel and Spa Windsor

    Faded English grandeur


    Booked via Lastminute and got an Executive room for £120. Phoned before hand to request a river view [as was special weekend], also confirmed on check-in that we had river view and was assured it was. Perhaps if you leant out of the window and had a mirror on the end of a long stick you could see the river....[Room 19 for your ref]

    Excellent Hotel - Extremely comfortable and beautiful surroundings


    Stayed here with my partner via Lastminute at the beginning of January this year. Had a wonderful time. Our bedroom was very very comfortable and had a large bed and gorgeous chunky oak furniture, with views across the river Thames towards Eton. The restaurant, although very expensive, was exquisit. The building itself was lovely, very charasmatic and romantic.

    Generally very nice


    The room we had was at the top of the hotel and of a good size, very clean, nice size bathroom. The staff were very friendly and attentive, although maybe a little aloof. The restaurant has wonderful views across the Thames and the food was of a consistently high standard. The hotel has a wonderful location, service is a good standard. I would recommend a stay here although it is rather expensive!

    All front and overpriced


    This is a spectacularly beautiful con of a hotel. Overlooking the Thames and the bridge, it is an ideal location for a wedding photoshoot. Indeed when we stayed the place was buzzing with wedding activities. Windsor is crying out for a decent 5 star hotel and it is amazing that establishments like the Sir Christopher Wren can extort the prices they do, yet offer so little. Designated as a 4* and charging £233 for a basic en suite room including breakfast, we managed to secure a deal with superbreak for £157.50. We wanted a day at the races and decided to combine Windsor with Ascot. (Ascot is a £20 taxi drive away)

    Historic Hotel with lovely terrace overlooking the river


    Very charming historic hotel, with a lovely restaurant terrace overlooking the Thames and Eaton across the river. Walking distance to the castle, and boat rides along the Thames. We enjoyed our stay. Hotel staff were very friendly and accomodating, the room did not live up to the rest of the hotel. But overall this is an excellent place to stay in Windsor, just steps from where you want to go, but quiet (a pedestrian street out front). Parking was available. A wonderful start to our visit to England. Highly recommended. (only 20 minutes from Heathrow.)

    Extremely Disappointed


    Having booked what we hoped would be a wonderful bank holiday weekend away for the family, we were shown to a room (purporting to be a suite) but which appeared nothing more than a superior room. On the website it states that this "suite" was approached through a mews. We were shown up a flight of stairs which can only be described as a fire escape. I was also informed upon booking that my children, aged 10 and 8, would be sleeping on the sofa bed in the lounge area - instead, there were two tiny camp beds - barely six inches off the floor - and really only capable of taking a child under the age of 5. When we called the manager to discuss our complaint, we were greeted by a young man who merely smirked and told us that all other rooms were booked. We turned on our heels and left immediately. In the reception area, another couple were also complaining that they did not get the room they requested when booking. I would not recommend this hotel under any circumstances. Drive to Bray and have a more peaceful and relaxing break.

    Ok for an overnight stay


    Average rooms, we had a nice view over the car park. Brilliant location in regards to Windsor and Eton.Waiting staff 90% were ok, most weekends a wedding is booked for the function rooms, so staff are busy waiting on that whilst neglecting the other guests. To sum up, ok for an overnight stay, good location, expensive food.

    No room for more ffod


    having been told by the desk staff that my reservation did not exist - despite having telephoned to confirm only two days before - i was then offered a lesser room at the same cost, which was eventually upgraded to my original booking of an executive double after a room suddenly became available ....... i was however slightly suprised to find that an executive double actually consisted of two single beds (of slightly different heights) pushed together - something that i found hilarious after slipping between them ....... the helpful desk staff, upon receiving my query as to whether this was normal for the room told me that sometimes it was used as a twin - i was of course pacified by this new information. there was a plus side - the resturant was excellent and the waiting staff were all friendly and helpful - verdict: a good place to eat

    Fantastic Hotel, Great Service and Amazing Location


    Sir Christopher Wren's House Hotel in Windsor is an amazing hotel overlooking the River. When we arrived the staff couldn't do enough for us. Our room was lovely, just like something out of Hello magazine.

    We dined in the resturant on both nights because the food was very reasonable and good quality, the atmoshphere in the restaurant was calm and inviting and the staff were very welcoming.

    Our stay was even more relaxing because of the massages we had at the health club, we would definately return again for a pampering weekend.

    Really nice hotel, just needs a little organisation


    A group of us usually use this hotel when working in London. Its a hotel situated over a few buildings, which can mostly be described as apartments. Depending on how lucky you are, your room can range to a decent class hotel room to an apartment with king-sized bed, living room, kitchen 2 TVs, etc. The hotel is in a good location, situated right beside Windsor castle and adjacent to the river which is usually full of swans. One bad thing to say about the hotel is that there has seldom been a week where they mess up the booking for us .. whether it be double booking or forgetting someone was supposed to be staying there.
