Room was very quiet, and well-furnished. No noise and a very comfortable bed - a pleasant surprise. Food was very nice too, although could do with much bigger portions. Gardens are lovely to walk around, with plenty to look at. Good service too. Not cheap!

At the hotel we have a jetty on to the River Thames, Salters Steamers run a cruise to Abingdon which can stop at the jetty (it is best to let them know you are boarding from the hotel).
