    Really enjoyable yet again.

    Another wonderful stay at the Mill House. Lovely to see things slowly getting back to normal and business picking up. Mark and Kim, along with Anita and Andrew, ensured the time spent there is enjoyed to the full.

    Home from Home

    A perfect stay during a few days away with work. Mark and Kim, were excellent hosts and made my stay very enjoyable. Unfortunately, the weather spoilt any chance of enjoying some time in the garden areas, however the food, drink, service and overall experience were brilliant.

    Room was set up for 1 person therefore additional towels were brought - didn’t need to ask for them. Mean supply of milk, coffee and teabags. Shower wasn’t working and was not the type/standard we would have expected. Forgot to tell them that at check out because I thought I’d paid for B&B so had to pay for breakfast. I was asked to pay the evening before but wasn’t offered to upgrade or reminded of what I’d booked. All in all the hotel was in need of refurbishment and the focus seemed to be on providing a wedding venue.

    Welcome and service very positive Waitress forgot to ask me if I wanted a drink when seated for eve meal but was very apologetic Felt having eaten and ordered that the soup was expensive at £6-50 but main course tasty and pleasant was better value. Decided not to stay for breakfast based on evening experience. Pillows uncomfortable. Bathroom clean and well equipped but could do with some modernisation. Parking facility very good and location handy for Reading & Maidenhead which is a plus Quiet area. Overall nothing poor but nothing exceptional either

    One night business stay

    Good price for a quiet place, convenient for M4 and Reading. Twin room on top floor at back was good size, comfortable bed and furnishings. Bathroom was a little narrow. Electric shower proved to be hotter and better pressure than I feared. Evening meal: decent steak with good flavour and proper chips. It was good to be in hotel that gave at least some choice of ale rather than the usual standard mass-produced draft. I'll definitely consider staying again.

    A cozy hotel, be careful on room choice though

    This is not your classic hotel, it's the type of place designed for weddings or business events. It's a lovely pretty hotel with some great outside space and maybe a dozen rooms. It's an old hotel (locks with keys on the doors etc.). Despite this the rooms are well cared for and looked after. The only room left when I booked was the single room, which was next to some extractor vent which hummed all night. If you stay I'd strongly suggest avoiding that room. There is parking out the front, and I believe overspill parking behind the hotel somewhere. I didn't have breakfast at the hotel so cannot comment on that. I'd stay here again if I was at an event here, otherwise it's a bit in the middle of nowhere.
