    Comfortable bed and friendly staff. A traditional hotel with ambience - nothing like the typical business hotels

    Room was very stuffy and I couldn't open the windows due to the flies by the riverside. I did not use any of the facilities so cannot comment on spa etc, but I wouldn't stay there again as I think it was overpriced for a small single bed room. Note it is not a self service breakfast - you have to order cooked food from the table so you cannot control the portion size nor the time it takes to actually reach you. Tv choice of channels and quality of tv reception is poor. Anyway the tv was set on a stand on the floor at the foot of the bed such that I couldnt actually see the tv if I lay down on the bed! I recommend the tv is set on the wall so it can be viewed.

    The riverside setting

    The room, particularly the en-suite facilities were, rather tired and a little gloomy. Not luxury: we were expecting a riverside view.

    The Swan benefits from a beautiful location beside the Thames.

    The English breakfast provided was a disgrace. Two of the advertised ingredients were absent and the meal had clearly been under a heat source for a considerable time and was inedible - the bacon bounced when dropped on the plate! When sent back, the replacement, which I had specifically asked to be freshly cooked, was very nearly as bad, at which point I involved the Manager. The third attempt I did not even see as I got bored waiting for it. The buffet breakfast on the second day was better, albeit rather cold as no heat source was provided for the serving dishes which were in position for some 2 hours. This level of performance would be unacceptable in the cheapest of Motels, let alone at the price that the Swan charges, although to be fair the cost of the 1st day breakfasts was deducted from the bill. In addition, the condition of the furnishings in the room and the decorative state of the bathroom were very poor.

    Location close to Basildon Park.Food.

    Bedroom(superior) and cost.

    Lovely view from balcony over the Thames. Room was very clean. Very nice Spa and gym. Good breakfast. Staff very attentive.

    Some of the paintwork was a little shabby in places. Some of the corridor areas looked a little tired and dated. There was a problem with the hot water in the morning and it took a lot of badgering to get a reduction on the bill.

    The situation, beside the Thames.

    The spa at the hotel was poorly managed -communication and information from the staff there was poor.

  • Older travelers

    The afternoon tea was very good, and the breakfast was very good. The location would be very hard to beat.

    Bathroon decor was a bit tired.

    Very scenic location, close to London

    Overpriced, small rooms, hot water did not work properly, breakfast service was poor.

    The location - a beautiful spot on the River Thames! Friendly staff and very comfortable.

    I enjoyed the comfort of the lounge, pity nobody to play the beautiful Broadwood Piano. The Restraunt overlooking the river was also very pleasant.

    Its location

    Meals expensive and quantity too minimal.

  • Older travelers
    6.2

    The location was by far the best thing

    The food and drink was quite appalling. Breakfast was greasy, rubbery and tasteless and whenever a tray of something ran out the staff took forever to top it up. The bar staff had no idea what an Irish coffee was and served a latte with alcohol. The standard is not what you would expect of a 4 star hotel.

    beautiful place;immediate access to great walks (Thames and Ridgeway;relaxed atmosphere

    Initially room seemed not quite prepared (TV on - no remote: etc) and as first-time visitors we would have appreciated a bit more demonstration of light swiches & door card system) - also a better reading light.

    Lots of space... inside and out faded elegance river views breakfast welcoming staff

    The location right by the Thames is superb. The staff were very happy and friendly. Spa was good. Many good pubs and eateries in vicinity.

    My room needed a makeover and whole place had a slight air of neglect when it came to decoration. Without the location and views of river it would not have been able to justify room rates. Food just about adequate but much more interesting cuisine to be found in pubs /restaurants nearby e.g. the menu was printed so no daily change according to market. We took our own rowing skiff but there were no launch facilities at hotel despite having been told that there were.
