Reviewed 22 April 2012

Attended a function at Moor Hall with Dinner in their Edinburgh Restaurant.
The meal was not at all good.
Usual poor cooking,quality & presentation that you seem to get at a lot of these function dinners these days, with the obligatory Head Waiter directing where the waiting staff have to serve the plates to the tables. Surely it is their job to make sure that the food coming out of the kitchen is of a high standard ?

Would be good to get the Chefs, or rather Cooks, at these Venues to swop places with you and for them to pay your ticket price and see how they would like being served the food they are expecting you to eat!!!!
Tasteless cold starter with mozzarella cheese -0/10
Main course of beef looked pale and unappetising,served with mash.
The carrots & mange tout that were served in a dish to the table were cold ! -5/10
An "iced chocolate parfait" dessert that was nearly melted when served! 2/10.
The room was cold,as there are a lot of floor to ceiling windows and it was a rainy,cold evening.
Would not return here

I have just spent 2 nights at the Moor Hall and i think i was the only guest. The complex has the feel of a hospital with various building spread out around a central courtyard. The rooms are like every one else has discribed and are dated to be honest. The corridor smells musty, a bit like an old caravan in the middle of summer with the windows shut.

I did not sample the Breakfast as i had been working nights. I was a little supprised to find that checkout is at 9.30am. This is really handy if you dont get back from work till 2am........

location of Cookham is lovely and if they wanted to they could make it a great hotel for guests, however they would need to spend alot of ££££££ to do so.

staff we friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: go to the crown plaza.

The grounds of the conference centre and couple of lovely pubs in Cookham were the up side of the facility. The bid downfall are the rooms. It was the smallest room I've ever stayed in. My husband came along and they charged us extra money for the second person although the room wasn't big enough for even one. The deco is very retro but only becasue the funriture or bed sheets have been there since 1949 (or at least thta's how they present themselves). I remeber the room being very very hot which made the sleeping impossible. Overall I wouldn't go back eunless I had to. I also remeber the food being just bereable.

Room Tip: I'mm afraid all rooms are the same

Firstly let me say for business facilities and location this is really good.

However the rooms are so bad. Double bed squeezed into corner of the room without room for even a bed side cabinet. The 1980's TV in some weird looking cupboard.

The worst thing though was the bed linen with old brown fluffy blanket and sheet and an uncomfortable bed.

I certainly will not stay there again out of choice.

Here for a four day conference. Excellent training facilities with excellent Audio/Visual staff. In fact, staff is the strong point of the facility. Friendly, helpful, easily available, and proactive. Location is certainly quaint, charming village of Cookham. Be clear that this is not London, and getting into London is not easy, though Cookham station is probably only half mile walk from hotel. Train there to Paddington Station appears to take about one hour. Selection of restaurants in the village, but hotel food was quite good. Certainly recommended for conferences and/or training programs.

Room Tip: Rooms are conference attendee rooms - spartan by hotel standards and small. But fine for a conferenc...

I have utilised this place many times over the last few years due to its proximity to my company UK office.
>Firstly, to be strictly accurate, this is not really a hotel, but more a conference centre and is part of the Institute of Marketing.
>Secondly, it does have 80 rooms, but these are primarily designed and aimed at people attending the residential courses run by the IofM and other organisations who utilise the conference facilities. But, they do open them to the general public, especially as there is a market, with demand for hotel rooms constantly outstripping supply in the Maidenhead area.
This will give background to some of the previous comments that the accommodation is basic , small and more like student accommodation, because frankly it is, due to who the initial target is.
But the pricing is set at the lower level, and although £95 web price may sound a lot for a single room midweek, believe me you will struggle to get anything near as low as this from the standard business hotels in the area.
And if you can negotiate for the £70.00 corporate rate that I paid this week, then this will be almost half what you can achieve from the nearby Crowne Plaza’s and Holiday Inns.
So, to concur, the accommodation is at the lower end , but functional and always clean in my experience.
The service at reception and in the bar area are competent and the breakfast has always been good.
The bar area is functional, with plenty of seating and separate area with snooker table and the beer is usually from the local Rebellion brewery.
And the location is very nice, with the Thames a mere stroll away, and the expensive pubs and restaurants of Cookham High Street just around the corner. And if you intend to eat in one of these, then you should try and save as much money on the accommodation as you can.

Really nice location in the village of Cookham - a bit hard to find (very limteded on signposts ) but once your there your greeted by a welcoming cheerful receptionist - then you have to drive around the centre to the accommodation area (nice grounds - well maintained) - the room (well you can read ALL the reviews they say the same) it was small... well tiny ? l booked a double just for me - l would hate to think what a single room was like (a cupboard ?) - the accommodation was basic and dated in decor - small portable tv with only 4/5 stations - small work desk - tea & coffee - free wifi connection - the bathroom smelled of meldew/damp again very small - towels not that great well passed their sell by date - breakfast was good - served straight away - the tables were cleared and cleaned very quickly - the waiting staff very polite - Cookham is about 15/20 minutes from the major connections for the M4 and M40 motorways - The rooms maybe small but the staff make up for it in a BIG way ?
