    I love the tranquillity that the Great House at Sonning has to offer in an area which is a very busy business orientated region.

    The front desk and housekeeping staff were delightful. All other staff was not. The breakfast staff & bartenders were almost rude ~ acted like waiting on you was a bother. The bar was about the only place the internet worked yet rarely was anyone there to get you something to drink.

    The staff here are really great. I made a mistake with my booking and they ammended this for me without charging, something they were within their rights to do. This is a very friendly and very well run hotel and I gladly recomend it.

    It was a good price for decent hotel in Thames Valley. Very good meal and service in restaurant in the evening.

    Couldn't get I/Net access. Could be my computer settings, but works in other hotels. Would stop me staying there again on business. Bfast restaurant service slow and hit and miss, while evening service excellent.

    Location and size of room

    Collection of smokers to be negociated at front door. Reception staff competent but cool in their approach. Room was comfortable but cold and remained so next morning. Fan heater provided but noisey

    We were lucky enough to be upgraded to am executive room, which was wonderful - next time we will definitely pay the extra for this. Wonderful quiet room. Perfect venue from which to access an event we were attending in nearby Henley. Very welcoming, and a wonderful conservatory dining room, delightful for breakfast.

    Slightly surprised that breakfast finished at 10am on Sunday - but the staff were marvelous when we arrived at 09.58am, and incredibly helpful.
