    Like most hotels the rooms are small but clean and everything worked , easy to say but the decoration in the public areas could be improved . The breakfast was good and the staff were very pleasant. If we needed to visit Pangbourne again we would stay at this Hotel. It would be nice to have stayed nearer the river ? But the river is very close , visit the Swan (pub) on nice warm day sit outside great view of the river .

    The hotel itself has a great feel, adding to this is the staff and the local atmosphere in the pub. I was recommended this hotel by a colleague and I will be recommending the hotel to other colleagues and friends.

    No gym available.

    The location of this hotel was great for where I wanted to be in the morning. Free wireless internet in the rooms as well as free parking were also good plus points

    We were looking for a place in the country side, thus picked up this hotel. But since we were coming from Stonor Park, after attending a show and travelling almost midnight....the way going to the hotel was somewhat scary and far. But the hotel itself is ok. I didnt like the wallpaper in the room though. An Egyptian Design something, cant really remember anymore..., also it darkens the room and gives an eerie feeling. Breakfast was ok...and the general ambiance of the hotel was very good and relaxing. The garden would be better with some improvements. Staff is very helpful, friendly and accomodating...

    Nothing really...except the distance. But then again, it depends from what pooint you are coming from...

    Central location, friendly helpful staff, clean rooms, good bar service, free wi fi, 5 minute walk to railway sation. Beer garden at the back

    The only minor distraction was, you could hear the extractor fans from the other guests bathrooms when they where in operation in the night.

    We were welcomed by a very pleasant female member of staff who made sure wewere booked in OK and that our lunch and drinks were provided. Tye hotel is located extremely convenient for us but would also suit others eg walkers, boaters. This is the third time we have stayed at the Elephant.

    Slightly quirky empire nostalgia and free elderflower liqueur. Cheerful young waiter at breakfast. Pity not all staff are in his league. See below.

    Very stroppy eastern european female on reception, clearly trained by the KGB. Has she ever heard of welcoming guests?
