Fantastic eclectic collection of art throughout public rooms and bedrooms. excellent choice of fresh breakfast items . Friendly and efficient couple run this special place. Nothing not to like

We live abroad but are currently in the UK homeless. The nomadic life is beginning to pall. Airbnbs that are underwhelming but cheap, five star hotels that fill you full of too rich food and empty your bank account and all sorts in the middle. So it was super refreshing to spend a couple of days in something unique. Something special. We were in the garden room which is a quirky mix of incredible (in a good way) wallpapers and eclectic furniture. It also has a door to some reasonable outside space and access to the garden which runs down to the Thames. We loved it. No fridge? No worries. A supply of ice buckets and an icemaking machine allowed us to chill some beers and wine. Nespresso machine and associated bits in your room - just what we needed. Didn’t love the breakfast room but adequate. So not perfect. Not five star. Definitely a nearly B&B rather than a hotel. But absolutely charming.

The setting on the Thames couldn't be better. The smell of wood smoke when we entered the main hall provided a great atmosphere. The owner took us to our lunch at the Waterside Inn by boat and we quaffed some beautifully chilled pink champagne en route. Each room is individually decorated in an eclectic style with fascinating modern art in abundance. The owners are clearly keen collectors. Breakfast is 'continental' but good quality: baguettes, fruits and cheeses all fresh and tasty. We took good advantage of the honesty bar - more pink champagne please - and the prices were quite reasonable (especially when contrasted with the Waterside). The following day, good weather enabled us to spend several hours sitting in the garden watching the boats and the geese, great crested grebes and swans. Some of the criticisms on this page are downright stupid. The stylish River Arts is not a hotel but, against the owners' wishes, the Trip Advisor algorithm insists it is. Some of the older crits are of the B&B when it was in different ownership so be critical of the criticisms is my advice. We had a great time and we'll be back.

had two delightful nights stay - very calm and cool - great continental breakfast and welcoming, helpful and accomodating owners and staff whillst Maidenhead may not be the go to attraction - the location and charm of the RiverArts Club more than makes up for it

I am writing this review to help others in deciding if this is the right accommodation for you before you pay to stay. We thought it was a hotel when we booked and after a quick look round it was clear it's a B&B. It's set on the river and has lovely views and it's quirky and pleasant inside. We wanted a drink before we went out for the evening but queued for sometime to make our own drinks at the honesty bar which is a very small room with a few drinks to choose from which you make yourself. On return from our meal out (11pm) we made a night cap from the honesty bar and sat in the lounge area. In the space of 10 minutes, two guests complained to us we were keeping them awake and not to talk any more! I can honestly say we were very respectful and tried to talk in a low key voice. There is no where else to sit and we planned to be in bed by 12pm. The owner explained they were not a hotel but a B&B?! We were a little put out to feel that we had to go to bed and wondered why they had a 24 hour bar? If you are looking for a quiet stay with very few amenities and an early night, this is probably great for you but we felt we would have booked somewhere else as we were only in the area for one night and didn't want to feel obliged to go to bed when told.
