Rooms are rather functional but the spa, the grounds, nice cocktails etc makes up for this. Had a lovely dinner at the Lock Restaurant- really good manager there and the scallops and steak were delicious. The pudding- chocolate gateaux- was a let down though. Tasted shop bought and not very pleasant! Reception staff were very welcoming and we thoroughly enjoyed...

About 20 of us were here for a 2 day business meeting and it worked well. The hotel is located just off the M25 on the River Thames so easily accessed and a nice setting. I was in a large superior room with a large comfortable bed and good pillows. The room was quiet and well equipped ... lots of...

My husband and I recently stayed at Runnymede-on-Thames. The hotel is located outside of Egham, about a 45-1 hour train ride into London. The hotel itself is a 5 minute, or less, walk into Egham. Egham seemed to be a very small town, with a few pubs, a grocery store, and a coffee store. It wasn't very scenic. You can...

Just returned from a two night stay at the Runnymede during half term. Probably not the obvious choice if you're thinking of heading to LEGOLAND but actually it was more or less the same price and was absolutely faultless on service, standards and attention to detail. Everyone looked after us perfectly and the little gift on arrival for children went...

I have eaten in both restaurants at The Runnymede Hotel and it doesn't matter where you sit the food you eat will be with a lovely view! The food and service is faultless. I have also been in the spa and can highly recommend it too for a spa day!

Stayed here for a weekend in August and October. The breakfast incredible and the rooms are nice. The food in the lock bar isn't that great but the food in the main hotel area is really good!

I chose to stay at the Runnymede because of its close proximity to Ascot Racecourse and I booked for two nights. Check in, remotely different from central London, was friendly and seamless.
