The staff were okay, but the management needs sorting out. We were given a room which was okay, nice to have a river view, but when I tried to have a shower in the morning, no water came out. Zilch. This is unacceptable as we'd paid for a room with an en-suite shower. I informed the reception when we checked out, then wrote three times to the manager to point this out but never even received a reply. It's understandable if the plumbing sometimes doesn't work but I would have expected at least an acknowledgement from the managers, maybe even an apology. No, nothing. I was intending to return for three days with my parents, but obviously have given up that idea. Don't trust these people, because if anything goes wrong they won't even give you the courtesy of a reply. They really don't care.

This Hotel has so much potential, great location but that’s where any positives end…. We stayed at the hotel as part of a wedding party over the August bank holiday weekend. After arriving on the Friday afternoon we were given room 204. This room had a strong unpleasant damp smelling odour and a hole in the ceiling so after complaining we were moved to room 202. I find it hard to understand how they found it acceptable to give a room in this state to a paying customer? We were happy enough with room 202 despite the vibrating floor from what we think was air con below the room. However that evening it was time to get ready to go out with the wedding party. My husband showered first and the shower tray immediately blocked after a short time so he couldn’t finish showering. I phoned reception and was told there was nobody from maintenance to look at the shower and that the hotel was full so I couldn't move room. I was asked if I could cope until the morning when maintenance were back in. I couldn't as I was meant to be going out for the evening and needed a shower after a long journey. Furthermore I needed to shower first thing on Saturday morning in order to get ready for the wedding. The receptionist told me the only option was to give me a key to a single room in order to shower there, I was given keys to room 210 to use as our shower room. This was down the corridor and around the corner. Saturday morning I spoke to reception again to ask what was going on. It seemed that nobody had been informed of the issue with our room and it hadn't been chased up. I was told that they would get maintenance to check the room today. I was offered to change room however I had no time to pack up all of our things as we had a wedding brunch to attend and when returning to the hotel needed to get ready for the wedding ceremony straight away. Therefore we continued using the shower in room 210 under the impression that our shower would be fixed on Saturday afternoon whilst out at the wedding. I asked if there would be some form of refund for the inconvenience to which I was told they would have to check with management first. I was never updated on the answer to this. On returning from brunch the shower still hadn't been sorted and it was then time to go out to the wedding ceremony. On returning to the room after the wedding just after 1am, still nothing had been done with our room and nobody had kept us updated as to what was going on. We asked at reception, again there didn't seem to be a handover so they didn't know and they said to ask to move rooms in the morning (Sunday). Funnily enough after speaking to some guests at the wedding party, it turns out they were in fact in room 202 on Thursday night but had chosen to check out early on Friday and find elsewhere to stay due to the condition of the accommodation and issues with the shower and vibrating floor. Again I find it hard to accept they decided to give somebody this same room already knowing there was an issue with the shower that hadn’t been resolved? I went to reception on Sunday morning to ask for an update on the situation with our room to be told that maintenance hadn't been. I expressed my dissatisfaction with the situation, especially with having to go up and down the corridor to use a separate room and shower. Bearing in mind I'm pregnant and wasn’t feeling my greatest at the time, I really could have done without the inconvenience. I again asked if there was any update on some kind of refund for the inconvenience as I had asked the previous day. The man at reception stated the only refund he can give is 10%, which only worked out at approximately £23, which to me I find an insult considering the situation and inconvenience caused throughout our stay. It was meant to be an enjoyable bank holiday wedding weekend away, having travelled far I was hoping to relax and enjoy my stay. Instead I felt like I spent a lot of the weekend attending at reception to chase up the situation with our room seeing as no staff member chose to keep us informed as to what was going on, or as to what wasn't going on as the situation still remained unsolved throughout our stay. We were moved to our third room since arriving on the Sunday afternoon, room 211, as our shower still hadn’t been sorted by this point. I was given managements email from reception staff in order to request a refund as they were only able to refund 10% of our stay, which is a total insult considering. I was told the only way to request a further refund was through the general manager who conveniently wasn’t working all of a bank holiday weekend?! I e-mailed management on the 30th of August but didn’t receive a reply. I re sent the same e-mail again on the 5th September, but this time copying the hotel e-mail in just in case, it is now the 26th of October and I still await a reply!!!! You’d think they would at least have the courtesy to reply. Absolutely shocking customer service…..avoid at all costs.

Location good and a grand old building but the place is not as nice as what appears on the website. Right on River Thames and the old bridge leading in to Maidenhead town centre. Good free car parking. Room adequate but nothing exciting. Bath wasn't spotless and windows don't open much so fan was essential. Surprised that cushions, throws and hospitality folders and guides in room despite COVID restrictions. Outdoor terrace tables had been adapted to booths and one way system in evidence in restaurant. Wasn't tempted to eat there though as it currently operates a limited menu and not much atmosphere. Maidenhead is over-developed and a bit grim so suggest Marlow or Cookham as far nicer places to stay in.

I chose this hotel as we were having a meal at the fat duck on Saturday 19th Sept. We arrived and checked in and although we thought the hotel appeared run down we would give it the benefit of the doubt. Our 1sr T night was horrendous as the beds were so uncomfortable. The management did give our friends a room change which was good but they had no other suitable room for us so we stayed put. I had booked 2 executive doubles and they were definitely not executive. They were clean so that was a bonus. The staff made up for bad nights sleep and Wendy was brilliant when serving us breakfast. The food was really good but would not go back.
