Reviews - Shillingford Bridge Hotel

3Self Classified Hotel Ratings explained
SHILLINGFORD ROAD , WALLINGFORD, OX10 8LZ
Situated on one of the loveliest reaches of the River Thames, between Oxford and Henley, the Shillingford Bridge Hotel is the ideal place to relax and unwind. Enjoying a quarter mile stretch of river frontage, the hotel naturally offers coarse fishing, the hire of river craft from local boat yards, and also private moorings.

The ground floor offers a modern contemporary look, whilst still in keeping with the traditional style of the building. Tastefully designed with beautiful tiled floors comfy sofas and Canadian Oak tables and chairs, every part of the hotel provides an ideal place to meet up with friends and family. BT Openzone is available throughout the hotel, giving WiFi access in the public areas, bedrooms and conference rooms.

The hotel has 40 en-suite bedrooms including standard, premier and executive rooms both in the main hotel and grounds of the hotel, with some overlooking the lawns and River Thames. All rooms have flat screen colour television, radio, direct dial telephone, hairdryer and trouser press, together with tea and coffee making facilities.

The Riverview Restaurant with its superb views across the grounds towards the river offers an extensive a la carte menu together with an excellent and imaginative wine list. Alternatively the River Bar serves a mouth-watering variety of light meals and snacks. During the warmer months meals are also served on the patio, where you can relax and enjoy the beautiful views across the river. Or maybe just relax in the comfortable lounge with an afternoon tea or pre-dinner drink.

There is an outdoor heated swimming pool with adjacent children’s paddling pool set within the grounds overlooking the river, which is open during the summer months. The hotel has a large complimentary car park.

The three versatile function rooms are ideal for all types of business and social gatherings, catering for up to 150 guests. Shillingford Bridge Hotel is also a popular venue for wedding receptions, with the river views providing a beautiful backdrop for the photographs of your special day. The hotel is also licensed for civil ceremonies giving us the opportunity to make your wedding day perfect from beginning to end.

Old Country Hotel
The room was what you would expect in an old country hotel. The bathroom was clean and the small bottles of soap/shampoo was a nice touch. There was plenty of tea/coffee available. The bed was comfortable. Two chairs in the room meant you did not have to sit on the bed to read/watch television .etc

nice setting but room needed some tlc
Our double room om had a great view of the traffic lights over the bridge on the Thames. Room and it's approach needed some maintenance. 1 towel, no shampoo or conditioner but at least there were complementary peanuts unfortunately they were spread over the floor. Shower in the bath was too risky for me to stand in so had a shower instead.

It could be so much better!
The rooms are very "tired" and require quite a bit of work. The public bar was very nice and comfortable with different eating areas. The main restuarant was shabby and breakfast limited and, durng our stay there was a coach trip in so that we had to keep asking for the one member of staff on to fill up dishes etc.
The reception staff were very helpful and although a mistake was made on our booking they rectified it quickly and upgraded our room.The bar staff were also really helpful and friendly.
At £100 per night I felt is was expensive for the poor level of quality. Which was a shame as it is in a lovely setting.

Disappointing
Some public areas in need of refurbishment particularly access to rooms both upstairs in the main building and in annex. Rooms small and mattress without any support at all. Cleanliness of rooms poor. Bar meals overpriced and self service breakfast poor. The best thing about this Hotel is the situation overlooking the river.

tired room in a great location
stunning location, but the hotel IMHO lives off the location and needs to spruce up the rooms a bit - I had to use the bin to wedge the window open for fresh air. Evening meal was quite pleasant although had sold out of my first two choices, breakfast was lacking - ok for old english travellers, not very modern or European (english breakfast only, with a couple of bowls of tinned fruit, cereal and yoghurt). Staff were very accommodating. Walk on the river was divine. Would stay again.

Staff friendly, lacked iatmosphere, Tired looking and bland from the outside. Bedrooms comfortable
On arrival hotel from outside looked a bit shabby, needs a lick of paint in certain areas. If I missed these a few hanging baskets on teh outside with some colour against the walls would give a more welcoming feeling.
If weather had been nice and warm , to sit on the grassy area or by the pool was a no no. The landscape was unkempt and pool was dirty.( Not sure if these area's were part of the hotel grounds but I believe that this is responsiblity of the hotel to ensure these areas look nice and chase the relevant parties .
The interior lacked atmosphere, however that could be due to the time of year perhaps and the touriset season hadn't got into full swing. Although in the winter perhaps it wouldn't have a warm atmosphere. The bedrooms were nicely decorated good size and beds comfortable. More attention to detail when cleaning in bathroom is required, Found a long black hair round the bath tap.....
