Don't really see the point in having a mini bar in the room which is empty and you have to request for it to be stocked.
The room was quite tiny and the hotel reminded me of a Travelodge type place as the amenities in the room were sparse, to say the least. Hotel was clean and staff were friendly. I didn't use any other facilities apart from having breakfast which was standard. Would stay again if the need arose.
"Luxury and excellent service but lack aircondition"
Very impressive grounds and friendly and excellent service. Great facilities and good food. However no aircondition bedrooms are let down on hot summer nights. Fans are not good enough to ensure comfortable ambience
Really friendly staff
Pretty rooms beautifully decorated
Food from the bar was delicious and served in the gardens under the old apple trees
Would recommend - less than 30 min drive to legoland from here

My wife and I had an early morning flight to Los Angeles from Heathrow. We were in France and had to ar5rive in England the day before the flight. Rather than taking the long and expensive cab ride into London we chose to stay near the Heathrow Airport but wanted to get away from the hotels right at the airport. We chose Fredericks because it was close but we still had a setting that was in the English countryside and not at the sterile airport. The hotel was on the outskirts of Maidenhead, not a particularly pretty town, but the room was nice, the dinner very good and it was only 20 minutes from the airport.

"excellent B & B near river and next to local shop"
Met at arrival time by friendly staff who after explaining all the facilities gave us keys to come and go as we pleased. Our room, The Den, was well appointed. The only possible issue was no tea and coffee making facilities in the room although the dining room had everything necessary.
The breakfast was amazing, cereal, fresh fruit, farm eggs with cooked breakfast and speciality bread. Ate too much but couldn't resist.
The location of the B & B is off the main road and therefore quiet and peaceful but is well located for Windsor, Maidenhead etc.
Will visit again when we are in the area and would recommend a stay.
The staff were lovely and very friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were plentiful and decently cooked.
The room was clean and well maintained.
And now for the 'buts': The room layout was odd. As soon as you walked in there was a shower cubicle, separate from the rest of the bathroom. That I was fine with. What was not so fine was that the shower door opened away from the towel rail - with a bit of thought, hinged the other way, it wouldn't have been necessary to strain, and drip water over the carpet, to reach the towel.
'But' no2, there were no hooks at all in the bathroom to hang even a hand towel on, so once hands or face were washed, you then needed to walk a good few paces into the (carpeted) room to get to the towel rail. I realise these are small things, but both could have been remedied with very little effort when the rooms were last refurbished.
Last 'but', the mattress was incredibly soft, so every time my husband moved in the night, I woke up (I am a light sleeper anyway, I do admit, but I'm not disturbed by his movements usually).
