Bit formal and old school. Feels a bit like family serving you rather than a polished article. But genuine for that and I frankly couldn't fault either the food or the view. Would come back again and again.

Mother's Day tea. Window table with great views over Thames. Despite it being busy we received great service and there was plenty to eat. Glass of champagne was an extra. Not rushed, so take time to relax and talk.

If you arrive at a hotel and the concierge comes out to meet and greet you you know you are in for a real treat. This is what occurred here..treated the moment we stepped on their turf like we meant something to them. The bar snacks that came with our drink at the bar were a real surprise, the room...

Booked through Booking.com and got room for £99. Reception was excellent. Room clean and cosy. Bathroom good and shower pressure excellent. Had a few drinks in the evening and breakfast. A bit pricy but about right for area. All the staff are polite helpful and professional. The only little issue is the 'optional' service charge which is added to your...

My wife and I were invited to celebrate a significant wedding anniversary, and fortunately we were not paying. The three course lunch was not cheap, but the third course certainly was. The selection of English cheeses were a disgrace and no reflection of our superb availability for choice and originality. We can now beat the French at their own game,...

Lucky me, I was treated to a 4 night stay at the Petersham hotel.This trip was a sentimental journey to my childhood haunts but with more luxury than I experienced back in the day. Our room was at the back of the hotel overlooking a copse and some building work taking place at the next door property.Fortunately this work never...

If you want to treat someone special to a luxurious High Tea in a unique elevated setting, this is the place to come. With spectacular light-filled views of the river and meadows through the huge windows, I struggle to think of anywhere that compares. The ambience is quiet, friendly but respectful. The sandwiches are imaginative and the little cakes, quite...

We stayed a couple of nights and had a very good dinner the first night. It was nicely served, tasted very good and the staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was a different thing - staff not as good, and the second morning I ordered fresh fruit which had to be reordered twice before a bowl of rather tired melon,...

We booked a suite at The Petersham for our wedding night. We thought this would be a treat and top off our special day. We have 3 small children and the room was perfect for us (316) as it had a separate bedroom for 2 of the children and plenty of room for the cot in our bedroom. Our very...
