The best breakfast I've had in a hotel this year None
Rooms 1 and 2 are situated on the first floor directly over the the main to louge bars....the noise is intolerable if you wish to have an early night,peace and quiet or dont like the tv turned up loud to drown out the noise.Please make customers aware of this when booking at this Pub/Hotel....Both these rooms are classified by the Hotel as Executive rooms....Even taking into account the age and history of the Hotel...this is a joke.Standard Doulble room...absolutely nothing 'Executive' about these rooms.And finally...the parking is a nightmare...the Hotel is situated down a cul de sac lane...its first come,first served with just 8 parking spaces in the car park....if you are planning on going out somewhere at night...you cannot return and find a parking space before the bar closes at 11.30....be warned...after 11.30 you,ll find a space...If you,re arriving after 1800 to check in...you,ll not find a parking space for onloading either...its a nightmare.
the location is perfect for exploring the local area , we like the idea of using the bull as a centre for further exploration , and will use it again in the future
The food was excellent.We had an evening meal on our first night which was very good. The full English breakfast was exceptional and so much we couldn't finish it.The staff were all really pleasant. The bedroom was adequate but the bathroom was really small. There was only space for a shower cubicle, a tiny sink and toilet. There wasn't even space to have a good towel dry in there, you had to step into the bedroom to do that!The other problem was the lighting in the room. It was really dim, very difficult when trying to dry your hair or do your make up, however the bed was really comfortable.
Food, location and general service. Not exactly bad .... but accommodation could be cheaper - it is after all a pub, notwithstanding its history.
food, beer, quality of room n/a
Welcoming, comfortable atmosphere. Accommodating and helpful staff. Great accommodation for visiting the Sonning Mill Theatre.Super breakfast ! Not suitable for anyone very disabled
Great rooms in old pub and food is good, with an excellent breakfast wifi did not work
Our stay in the Bull Inn was short but memorable. It was a beautiful day so the yard was very busy but fun! Unfortunately we didn't eat in the restaurant so I can't comment on that, although going by the breakfast the food was very fresh and had a good choice! The rooms are nicely decorated and the bed was very comfortable! Could have done with a fan in the bedroom! Bathrooms could do with a bit of a facelift!
Staff were friendly and responsive bathroom was nicely done nice atmosphere in the pub / restaurant good freshly cooked breakfast Not much space for guests in the pub car park (lot of it was being used for outdoor seating for the pub). We did find space in the road but we could have been unlucky if arriving later. Despite booking for two people the room was only prepared for one (towels etc) but staff were responsive in sorting. Room size was fine for one night for two people but was on the small size for more than this if staying as two people (virtually no luggage space and we were en route from a holiday so it was a bit cosy)
good value, easy to find, pleasant looks a little dated
Overall this is a very nice hotel, very comfortable and a good choice of food which was very plesant. I have stayed at this hotel several times before and would certainly recommend and return back.
Friendlyness of staff
the staff were superb, nothing was too much trouble. I had a minor problem with the shower, as soon as I mentioned it the manager sorted it. I will be returning, the food is amazing , I didn't want to leave really.
Value for money Traffic noise from the main road.
The best English breakfast I have ever had!! The airfreshener was overpowering. It was difficult to open the windows. The E.mail location was five miles to the East from the advertised location!
The room was quaint. the restaurant presented excellent value for money & the bar was homely & comfortable.....all in all, a very pleasant stay.
Excellent breakfast - really fast service!
Excellent Pub Uncomfortable bed
The rooms, bathroom general ambiance we were too late for breakfast
comfortable beds, nice and quiet, well apponted. Staff not quite on the ball, breafast back-up tables swept away as we ate.(loss of second coffe!) very noisy background music (evening)/radio (morning). Shower pressure very low, it was at the top of the buuilding though.
we enjoyed exploring the area, and old haunts, has mr wilkinson lived just up the road in his teens we did not like the fact that we did not have an opening window in our bedroom
Friendly staff Room maintenance could be better - a couple of light bulbs had failed in what was already quite a dark room
Little touches of design like pillows small baskets drink set up.Intenet link Good breakfast
Clean comfortable rooms with nice bedlinen. Good food. No mobile phone signal within the pub or rooms and the wi-fi coverage is ver poor.
Friendly staff, quality of room, good parking, wonderful old building, good location
Its was a comfortable bed and the room was pleasant enough. The hotel was quiet at night with no disturbances. Insufficient bed linen. Tea and coffee making facilities has not been renewed.
Comfortable, clean, good service and local for the function we attended. N/A
Rooms are a bit noisy, close to the road. They forgot to wake me up (service offered in writing)
The location of the hotel is really convenient if you have work in the TVP. The location of hotel is good but actually its too noisy. Also the standard of the food is not at all good.
Beds very comfortable and clean. The lady at breakfast was helpful and efficient. The bath mat was mildew and despite mentioning this a reception it was not cleaned, replaced or removed for the second night.
Location and free wifi. Good discount rate. Food at the adjacent pub is good value. TV service is very poor. This has been noted in several reviews. There is no excuse any more for this issue.
Quiet and clean just what I needed at the end of a busy day. Being able to get a meal at a very reasonable cost was a real plus.
comfortable value for money ..Lovely food and bar on site nothing
Receptionist exceptionally helpful.
Good value for money. Food was good Waited 40 minutes for breakfast. Tea and orange juice ran out
The food and drink A bit of a wait for the room to be cleaned and with the rush, not really completed to standard.
meals and wine good selection and good value bathrooms need updating
It was a small local gastro pub with 4 rooms upstairs. The rooms were very well appointed, comfortable, cozy and clean. The pub atmosphere was extremely friendly as it was all locals. Very nice up-scale neighborhood. The food in the restaurant was amazing and very moderately priced. Staff was so friendly and accommodating in every way. If you can get a room - grab it.
Comfortable, clean and friendly Nothing
Clean accommadation & a smoke free room
Please write at least 15 words Quiet clean hotel. Safe for single female guest - ask for a room on the upper floor.
Comfortable, clean and friendly There was nothing i didn't like about the hotel
Rooms was great, though next to carpark I heared nothing, food was great staff was every friendly and helpful t.V only had 5 channels in my room. but every thing esle was great
Landlady very helpful
frendly and comfortable.
Very close to my family only stayed one night. Unfortunately there was no toilet paper and no one around to ask so it made it a bit uncomfortable.
