“Appaulling Management”
Reviewed 25 November 2011

As a local resident, I was on the train back from London and met 2 friends on the train and we decided to have a quick pint at The Ethorpe. We were served by the manager at 11.04pm, who said sorry she wouldn't serve us unless we were residents as we close the bar at 11pm.

When a resident offered to buy us a drink, having overheard this, she still refused and asked us to leave as we were not residents.

I don't think I have ever experienced such rudeness and poor service. NOt only was the manager rude and arrogant, but one of her young bar staff was very bolshy and insulted one of us......I will never step foot in there again, there are plenty of pubs and restaurants nearby where the staff are friendly and understand service.....words almost fail me.....

Room Tip: book somewhere else! The Greyhound in Chalfont St Peter is delightful

Our family have used the Ethorpe as the base for our annual Christmas visit to London for 12 years now and it has never let us down. The warmth of the welcome and the high level of quality in both food and drinks ensures great value for money especially at the weekend when there are great savings on the weekday business rates. The location is perfect for anyone coming from the North. The M40 runs close and there is a 5 minute stroll to the railway station to the brilliant Chiltern line which gets you to central London in 25 minutes and Wembley Stadium even quicker. The refurbished bedrooms are very comfortable and the service is individual and friendly.

Room Tip: Family Room is excellent

We were meeting friends who live in the area and stayed at the Ethorpe Hotel for a few days. This is a great Hotel with very friendly staff. The rooms were comfortable and bar inviting!
While the Hotel is a little on the old side, it is not a negative point at all, in view of the character that it has. A lot of people were around due to the Ascot Races which were being held close by. there are also a number of very good restaurants in the town close by the Hotel.

Stayed here as a late booking vis Laterooms.

Its not the most expensive hotel in the world but for £89 I expect a quiet room that I am able to get to sleep in.

The hotel itslef is pleasant, if a little dated. Staff are friendly. However Room 31 has a constant metallic throbbing noise emanating from the walls. Four calls to reception and promises/excuses that it would stop on each occasion (apparently its the noise of the fan in the chimney). It didnt.

Poor
