I just stopped in on my way up river with a few friends for a bottle of Champagne. I was told that they had run out of the house and I would have to settle for the more expensive Veuve which was not a big problem until on asking for another they had run out of that and I would now have to spend £60 on Bolinger. Whilst blowing money on Champagne might not gather much sympathy how any respectable establishment stock so little that they run out after only one bottle is ordered is beyond me. Additionally, that atttitude of the Manager was fairly poor and on discussion about a discount to the second bottle due to them having nothing else was pretty dismissive esentially saying to take it or go elsewhere. Sonning is not renowned for much in the way of amenities. It certainly looked like a place I would have liked to re-visit but it is expensive and I am not sure the client is the priority.

Appearances form the outside can be very deceptive.
On entering the building you can immediately tell all is not well, the floor of the halls and stairs are filthy and stuck in the 1950's probably the last time they were decorated.
Only plus was that the room was warm, shower very noisy, wires haging out of walls in bathroom and crumbling stained walls. Room 17 avoid at all costs, traffic noise was an extra bonus.
We could not face breakfast exited as soon as we could.

Not really anything like the photos. Nice location rooms were comfortable enough, No air conditioning and the decor was dated but it was clean. Breakfast was nice there was plenty of choice. Enjoyed the evening meal but wish there was more choice. Booked it with late rooms for £ 59 so it was worth it.

This is the sort of place which makes you realise why the English are famous for' puting up with things and not complaining. Do not be swayed by the pictures on the website, from the minute you walk into the lobby you can tell you are dealing with a low quality establishment, stuck in a 1980's timewarp.The place has about as much sophistication as the multi-coloured Xmas decorations that are currently on show: hard pillows, patterned carpets, patterned bead covers( with blankets - duvets are obviously a bit too modern!) and no air con. The breakfast is particularly dire: you are faced again with a pub carpet and then when you sit down you have a selection of disposable containers of cereals, butter and jams - have they not heard of a bowl and a spoon? I don't want to have to scrape my butter, sorry margarine out of a plastic container when I am paying £100 a night for a room! That is the worst of it - I wouldn't mind the kitch if it was cheap but for the same amount of money you can get much, much better quality.The only reason we went to stay here was that we were attending a party at the hotel and guests who wanted to stay got a " special price", but even that was far too much. If you're not bothered about frills, I would go to a travel lodge - leave this place well alone.

I booked this hotel with Late Rooms and paid £59 for a standard double for sole occupancy including breakfast. This is less than half the rate quoted online direct with the hotel. Some of the hotel decor is a bit weird - like they've had a stab at keeping it in tradition with age of the old parts of the building but the fake stone-effect on the walls and bronze spray paint on the bedroom doors made it look a bit like a bad film set. That said, the staff were all very helpful and friendly and our rooms were very well equipped considering they were classified as standard. There were trousers presses, irons & ironing boards, a cooling fan and all the other little touches you'd expect. I do think the wi-fi should be free of charge - as many hotels offer this now. The restaurant used for breakfast is smart and contemporary and the choice on the cold buffet was excellent (well done for a good selection of fresh chopped fruits etc) and my colleague said it was the best scrambled eggs ever!! All in all, defintiely worth what we paid.
