    The location was perfect for us. We were visiting friends who live in the next village, which was only 15 mins walk away. The walk over the Thames was lovely and my other half counted SIX pubs during the walk. If that's your thing !

    Even though the room was lovely No6. It was rather dark and not so good for putting your make up on. Bit more lighting would be perfect.

    The size and comfort of the bed, though the pillows were too soft. Lots of hot running water and a powerful shower. The room was clean. The breakfast was well cooked and tasty. They also let my husband combine two cooked options to take into account his egg alergy. The position of the hotel in Pangbourne.

    Booked for Friday and Saturday night. We were in a room in the annex, and the member of staff who booked us in remarked that these rooms tended to be quieter. On the Friday there was a BBQ in the garden until late with lots of noise, on the Saturday a wedding reception - music blaring until midnight, and even worse, drunk guests shouting and laughing right underneath our window. The extra people at the wedding meant that there was no parking space for us - we had to pay to park on the village hall car park next door, which was then free after 6pm. The room itself was the most depressing shade of grey I have ever come across. The bathroom was OK but there was no plug so a bath was out of the question, and the grouting needed a good clean. The bar area was frankly shabby, as were the lobby areas of the annex - tattered carpet and a lot of stains and scuff marks. Whilst the meal we had in the bar on the Friday evening was OK it was pricey for what it was. The bar was lacking in atmosphere, and the bar staff competent but lacking warmth and friendliness. It would have been nice to be able to sit in one of the other available guest areas but this was impossible as these were taken over by wedding guests. Had I have known about the wedding in advance I would NOT have booked with The Elephant. Very corporate, a good choice for business perhaps, but not for romance, or peace and quiet!

    Nice individual rooms. Beautiful garden.

    Public areas were shabby and in need of an update. Restaurant was more like a refectory and breakfast was poor. Bar area was also like a public bar of yore! Not comfy at all. Had the weather been bad we would have had to go elsewhere for a drink.

    The food in the bar was very poor, also the annexe rooms are too noisy, as they overlook the garden, especially if there is a wedding on.

    A quiet room and comfortable bed

    No help with suitcases up fairly steep stairs. Picnic lunch not possible despite being assured on the telephone that it was "no problem"!

    I liked the very comfortable beds with smart crisp white linen and the big fluffy towels.

    I didn't like the fact that there was very limited free parking space for the hotel guests.

    Pleasing, thoughtfully chosen furniture and decor. Large, comfortable bedroom and bathroom. Pleasant staff. Good breakfast. Reasonable price.

    Ground floor window with no way to latch when open. (Probably not a problem in Pangborne, but didn't feel quite secure.)

    Friendly staff Good bar Good food

    Room key large and not portable, has to be left with Reception. Reception desk not always manned - getting the room key becomes a manual task and this obviously has security implications

    The location was excellent for a short break near the River Thames and the village of Pangbourne has a good selection of local and independent shops. The hotel was and comfortable and quaint and interesting.

    Just a comment that the bar area furniture needs a bit of an upgrade but beverage selection, quality of beverages and bar food and wine was excellent
