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.

This hotel met or exceeded every expectation. Although when we booked we booked a Double and 2 singles and we were given a double and single we enjoyed the room and nice staff.
The view of the Thames was lovely and we would definitely stay again.
We attest two nights and loved it one of the best bnbs we've stayed at. The breakfasts are amazing and everything is very easygoing. We managed to sit over breakfast for 2 hours! Thanks again Elaine we loved it and would stay again!
I booked this hotel only because I couldn't find any rooms in Marlow. What a turn of luck! Bel and the Dragon is a jewelry box full of the charm of Old England. The rooms are delightfully quirky, yet quite comfortable. Mine had a small door in the washroom, which leads to a tiny second bedroom just the right size for a child, and complete with wooden toys. The tavern downstairs is circa the 1500s. While having hot breakfast (I recommend the Proper Bacon Sandwich), be sure to ask Nick to tell you the story of Connor, whose dog bowl is lovingly kept on the floor by one of the tavern tables. In the evening, the tavern is lively, and full of locals. The restaurant spills out into the formal gardens, and boasts a wonderful menu of English cuisine. Although I was there for a week of office business meetings, my mornings and evenings were a wonderful holiday!
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).

We chose this hotel because of its proximity to Lillbrook Manor where we had just attended a wedding reception. We knew we would be late arriving, this was no problem at all, we were provided with the keysafe number and instructions. We were also asked what time we would like to have breakfast and whether or not we would like a cooked breakfast (which, by the way was lovely),
Parking was easy, plenty of space. No problems picking up the key. The room was lovely and the beds were really comfortable
A leading business district, Maidenhead is commuter heaven with easy road and rail access to London. The Maidenhead Riverside offers views of the Thames and Maidenhead Bridge, and just a shot down the river you will find Maidenhead Railway Bridge, a brick arch bridge designed by famous mechanical and civil engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel.
