I have been staying at the Lambert Hotel a few times a year for the last 10 years for business reasons. I have always enjoyed the stays, Rooms are clean and spacious, Bar\Restaurant have a really nice ambiance with a great selection of drinks and excellent food. Staff are always helpful and always try to make your stay as enjoyable as it can be. Great place to base yourself weather you are away on business or pleasure.

Jporter Couples - 04/03/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

The room was spacious and nicely decorated. Plenty of chairs, desk/dressing table etc. Bathroom was huge. However, the room was cold as the hot air heating was inadequate. The portable heater already placed in the room did not work either. Took about 24hrs for the room to warm up. Restaurant area was pleasant. Breakfast was acceptable with fair amount of choice.

Excellent Hotel And Wonderful Staff

Couldn’t get heating to work... very cold night. No spare blanket or bed-spread to help. Very small towels in the bathroom. Rooms tired and stains on the carpet. Funny smell in reception. Overall just a bit run down. Quite an unpleasant night.

Anonymous Couples - 25/02/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Lovely meal. Lovely room. Not brilliant having a connecting door as we could here everything from the next room. Choice of lager for my husband was not great. No Gordons gin for me. Plenty of “posh lager and other guns” but not what we wanted. Great evening though at Only Fools and 3 courses.

Dear PAUL M., Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience at the Mercure Thame Lambert Hotel. I am sorry that your experience did not meet your expectations; please allow me to express my sincerest apologies. At Mercure, we strive to provide a superior service experience for every customer; therefore your feedback is very important to us. Please rest assured that we are taking the appropriate measures to address the problem and prevent future occurrence. I am sorry to read that the selection of lager was not to your satisfaction but with Stella peronei and our own lager I am disappointed to read that you felt our lager offer was poor. As for the Gordon's gin that is not acceptable as Gordon's is our house brand and I will take this up with the F&B manager. We appreciate your sharing your concerns, and it is our hope that you will give us the opportunity to better serve you in the near future. Sincerely, Mark Tulett General Manager

We attended the only fools and horses comedy dining. Accommodation and evening meal very good. Breakfast was disappointing, service poor, we had to get waitresses attention to request tea, staff seemed rushed and disorganised. Avoided eating sausages as they were totally pale on the outside and was worried they were undercooked. All staff were polite

Dear ELIZABETH C., We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay at the Mercure Thame Lambert Hotel. It is always a pleasure to receive positive feedback.

Tim T. Solo - 24/02/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

When I got to my room it was very cold and even when I got the heating blasting out it took a long time to warm up. Normally rooms are overheated but this was quite the opposite. Otherwise the staff were all excellent and everything else was to my satisfaction.

Maxine Business - 24/02/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Very friendly responsive staff. Lovely room. However I had to switch rooms due to heating not working correctly in the first one, & in both rooms the teaspoons did not appear to be clean - they had coffee/ tea stains & the handles were sticky... This is unhygienic & disappointing... I shouldn't have to clean these myself before using... Please can you give this attention.... I am staying again very soon & hope I don't find the same, otherwise I will stay elsewhere on future visits.

Anonymous Couples - 18/02/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

I booked the valentines night with the Jersey boys for my wife and I. I was not told I would be sharing a table with 8 other people who I didn't know. Even though we ordered the food from the set menu well in advance as requested my wife's food was not cooked as ordered and we were told we would have to wait until all of the other food was served before it could be sorted. On more than one occasion the person taking my drinks order at the bar stopped serving me and started serving food with no explanation

Dear GRAHAM E., Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience at the Mercure Thame Lambert Hotel. I am sorry that your experience did not meet your expectations; please allow me to express my sincerest apologies. All our reservations for the Jersey boys night were based on shared tables due to the demand for tickets and I am sorry if this was not conveyed to you. With reference to the food not being cooked to your order I can only assume you ordered the beef more well done and this should have been explained to you that the fillet of beef would all be medium and served accordingly. I apologise if this was not to your liking. I have taken up your comments about bar staff service and can assure you this will not happen again. We appreciate your sharing your concerns, and it is our hope that you will give us the opportunity to better serve you in the near future. Sincerely, Mark Tulett General Manager

Waited 20 minutes to get a drink. Wanted a Pate starter but told couldn’t have it as was eating in the bar, not on the bar menu only in the restaurant. Waited 30 mins for the meal and had to ask for the pudding.

Graham Couples - 30/01/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Room was comfortable, comfy bed and plenty of space - upgraded from what I booked at no cost. Had the carvery for Sunday lunch - very enjoyable. Had breakfast included and had the buffet though there were options for other things like an omelette had i wanted one. All was fine. The hotel is a short distance from the M40 so after checkout I was on the motorway within 5 minutes.
