I stayed at the hotel last night to go to a relatives party . Downstairs looks alright but the minute you start going up the stairs you notice the shabby dirty carpet . The room carpet was even worse really filthy , shabby curtains hanging off the rail , grubby walls , cracked sink in the so called bathroom ! I have never seen such a small bath the water trickled out so slowly it would have taken an age to fill it even though it was tiny so had a slow trickling shower instead and to make matters worse the toilet didn't flush . If it wasn't for the fact we had to get ready to go out , I would have looked for somewhere else to stay . Friends of ours had dirty water rising in the shower and similar grubby dirty carpet . On making a complaint they took £20 off the bill but to be honest it wasn't enough compensation for staying in a room like that. Collapse
Should & could be excellent.

I stayed a Thursday night on a personal trip down from Lancashire. I grew up in this area and the Manor has been there forever! Datchet is a lovely village on the Thames, one stop away from Windsor on the regular train. There's a pub, restaurants, shops, off license/general store with ATM (charge applied - £1.50 when I visited) and it is right over the road from the side of the hotel; plus a petrol station. The hotel is very attractive and has a prime location in the village, right by the railway station (Waterloo line out of Windsor & Eton Riverside). With all this going for it, one would expect high standards, but unfortunately not. On arrival I was offered no help with my bags, even though my room was at the very top of the building! The stair carpet is thread bare. My £85 deluxe double room was spacious, but had 2 velux windows; one above the bed with a closed blind and no option to open it, the other at the opposite end - on opening it to cool the room down, I found the inner edging to be filthy. The decor was incredibly bland with not even a picture hanging. The edge of the carpet and skirting board where the room door opens was thick with dust. I used the Aircon rather than the roof window. There was no light in the black tiled shower, so it was quite dark. On the plus side, the bed was very comfy and I had a pleasant nights sleep. The hotel entrance is locked at 11pm and guests are not entrusted with a key! I was assured there was a night porter on duty to let me in if I returned later. When I did, after banging on the door and waiting, then walking around the side of the hotel where they have a Brasserie entrance and banging on that, plus some windows, and back to banging on the main entrance, just when I thought I'd be sleeping in the car I wa finally let in! A very cheerful porter, who made no apology for, or reference to, my lengthy wait. Not good enough! On checkout I asked if it would be possible to get a coffee and was told I could and that I could sit in the restaurant or lounge. However, on walking around I could find no one to serve me! I ended up leaving and had a lovely brunch and coffee across from the rear of the hotel in 'Nibbles'. On booking via a hotel website, I included a special request to check-in 1 hour early, which they received, but I never got a response. As it was, with a slow journey down the M6, it wasn't needed. On leaving, I wasn't even asked if I'd enjoyed my stay, which is customary. It is very sad that what could be a lovely hotel is so poorly run. There is so much untapped potential. Some fresh cut flowers in public areas, updated decor in the rooms - a feature wall perhaps - pictures. It's not rocket science! Based on my stay, I would not recommend it, I'm afraid. Collapse
In need of TLC

Well the advertised photos do not match reality. Perhaps they need to show photos of the real rooms. The staff were lovely but the hotel needs a complete facelift. From the frayed carpets on the stairs to the even more threadbare carpets in the rooms. Add to this cracked window panes and dodgy taps and light fittings that don’t work and you get the picture. The bed linen was beautifully clean but the dust behind the bedside cabinets had to be seen to be believed. Also the exposed bases of the divans had been inexpertly repaired/recovered. I’m not sure how they could justify the prices, perhaps it was a case of location location location. It served it’s purpose as it was near where we wanted to be on the Saturday night. But a total facelift is definitely needed. A shame as this could be a good hotel. Collapse

We have been going to this hotel for a number of years as we love ratchet and the walk to Windsor but last few times of staying here it has dramatically gone down hill think it has new management couple tears ago who don't want to do anything to it .downstairs is nice and cosy but upstairs has not been touched cracked sinks windows that don't close dirty walls all the little things are dreadful mattresses need replacing as you can feel springs and the pillows are awful they do not put heating on until around 4-5 pm so your room is like a freezer then it comes on blasting all night and most of radiators can't be controlled it is such a huge shame they can't be bothered to do any upgrade as it is a lovely old building but they need to spend a lot of money doing a few rooms at a time otherwise once you stay there you will never return and it will only have 1-2 stars shame shame shame . There are so many much nicer comfortable and not tired hotels on internet that have brilliant deals they will end up closing in a couple of years Collapse

2 of us were on a business trip hotel receptionist very helpful and friendly and reception rooms looked nice. My colleague went to his room then came out saying the extractors out side his window were to noisy for him to sleep so they moved him to another room, he rang me to say he could not get the water hot in the shower and had a luke warm shower instead as he didnt want to move room again. I went to my room the shower did take some time to warm up but was hot. I then sat on the bed watching tv at about 17.30 i heard water dripping on to the carpet looking up at the ceiling i saw where the water was coming from,i went to reception to inform them the man on the desk promptly changed my room. By the time i got back to my room water was gushing from the ceiling over the wardrobe and through the extractor fan in the bathroom. From what i can gather the room upstairs left the shower on the plug hole must have been blocked thus the leak. My 2nd room the toilet did not flush so i was moved to an executive room on the top floor it was nice but low ceilings and to many wooden joist to bang your toes.we then went down for evening meal no one was using the restaurant so we asked if food was on and the bar lady said she would check if the chef was in we looked at each other and decided to go eat in the pub across the road.Breakfast was ok a bit bland for a full English. I don’t think i would book here again Collapse
