Spent two nights in this charming hotel on the River Thames in Staines. It has lots of character and the staff are very friendly. Only meal we had there was breakfast which was OK. We had to ask for replenishments of milk and juice. Room was very comfortable but the hotel has a problem with heating - apparently due to...

High price break but worth the balcony over the Thames! Staff amazing especially lady called Jude(?) on Reception. Quirky building slopes towards the river, and many other directions. Good atmosphere and popular with non-residents. An expensive treat. Thank you.

Stayed here for 3 nights, and was overall very pleased. Nearly all the staff were very helpful and friendly, the bed was very comfortable and it was very quiet. The cleaners obviously do a really good job, but there were a few maintenance issues that need to be addressed. Breakfast was great. Would definitely come back

Just brilliant! Staff are fantastic, views awesome best chill out weekend I've ever had, rooms are super, I just can't fault anything. Alessandro done everything possible to ensure we were accommodated to the highest standards, all the staff are very pleasent and just so polite. We couldn't have found a more idyllic setting for a break out the rat race....

Returned here in April 2016 after a successful stay in 2015, but with 10 friends this time to walk the Thames Path. Six rooms all comfortable, even if the bathrooms were cramped. The benefit of being on the river - bank and a great bar and terrace with an excellent restaurant far outweighed any short comings. Super staff. Go!

We had a lovely Sunday lunch for 15. The food was really good and the service was great. We stayed a long time. We weren't rushed but the service wasn't slow. It is a beautiful building in a lovely setting by the Thames

I have had several good meals at the Swan so when there was no room in the hotel across the road, I had no hesitation in booking a room at the Swan. While the staff were very friendly, the room was very disappointing. Firstly, it was hard to find as there was no number on the door. I had to...

First class. Atmosphere warm and friendly staff. Made no fuss about 3 rather messy but cheerful children and 6 noisy adults. Good Sunday lunch. Bonus was excellent guitarist James Deane afterwards on terrace. Great spot by river - will return when warmer weather.

Stayed here for work. Great place, right on the river. Relaxing at the end of busy day in evening sunshine, next to the river with a drink....what could be better. Good in the winter too. Need to book early.

I stayed in the Swan for a week while on a course in Staines. Of all the places that people on the course stayed at, this was definitely the best choice. The staff are friendly and helpful, the bar is well stocked with a good range of beer, and there is a good atmosphere. Certainly the favourite place for a...
