Friendly relaxed staff, good breakfast, comfy bed. Students enjoyed the stay. Lots of bird life in the surrounding area. Tip - (Group canoe expeditions) If you need to access the river side car park with a high sided vehicle, or high sided canoe trailer the height barrier is unlocked by the Park services not the YHA staff.

We only stopped a night as we we're visiting family and so didn't take in the environment or amenities. Good clean basic room at a very affordable price and a very good cooked breakfast. Plenty of safe parking and bike racks. Kitchen facilities in the lodges looked ample.

We chose this hostel because its five minutes walk from the station, with frequent fast trains into central London. It was loads better than we expected: arrived on Sunday afternoon and first luck was we had a twin bedded room rather than bunks. Looked out of the window to see 4 redwings on the grass immediately outside. Next had tea...

Hi Softred, Thanks for your kind review of the hostel. It was really great to meet you both during your stay. the hostel is very unique due to its location, the train station is a great asset as it means you can access London very quickly but you can also enjoy the greenery around us. I cannot believe you saw...

My first experience at a youth hostel exceeded my expectations, and I'd stay at this property again. The meeting space was comfortable, with a private deck for some fresh air during breaks. Beds in were simple, comfortable, and included a comforter and pillow. A personal travel sheet is always a good idea, even if it simply provides a bit of...

Reception staff very friendly and willing to help. Rooms were clean, but decor definitely needs a refresh. Food plentiful, as long as you arrive at the right time(which isn't always easy if travelling by coach in London.) Wifi limited to bar area and quite slow. The USB charging sockets in the bedrooms were really useful. Restaurant is canteen style and...

We stayed here for one night for Valentines. I don't usually write reviews but I was very impressed by the service and the warm welcome from staff we received. I will definitely recommend this for a short break. The lodge was comfy with its own self catering facilities and surrounding areas were worth visiting. On a final note, I would...

Hi. we were impressed with the welcome we received. Our disabled room was quiet from trains and bedding etc up to standard. I pointed out the lights that didn't go out and the disabled chair in shower that needed attention. Kitchen utensils could do with a stock take as other guests minimised availability of kit. Ppl there were obliging over...

The youth hostel was very nice (clean, warm, cosy and comfortable) and conveniently located (next to a regional park for relaxing walks and very close to a train station with many fast trains to London) and the staff (Shannon and Rachel when we were there) were extremely friendly and helpful.
