The studio is such a great little find. It's about 10 min walk into town and is really comfortable, clean and modern and has everything you could need. Shahid is a wonderful host.
The studio apartment was very nice and clean. The bed was comfortable and we had everything we needed, including food, washer and dryer, a refrigerator, microwave, stove/oven. It was complete with everything you would need for cooking, along with spices, etc. We were very happy with our stay and couldn't have asked for more. I would highly recommend this place to stay!
Excellent apartment , , very clean and comfortable. Owner had thought of everything to make our stay a real home from home.
Plenty to see in Henley on Thames ,found lovely unspoiled villages in easy reach .
We spent two days in this studio apartment and had a Fab stay from start to finish!
Shahid & Yasmin are lovely people... very welcoming and really nice to chat to. They have thought of every little thing you may ever need in this apartment... there's a plentiful supply of food products (and I MEAN plentiful!), a massive selection of toiletries, and even an umbrella! And a very good complimentary bottle of wine too (thank you!) Everything you may need to enjoy your stay is right there!
The apartment is exactly as described, and was nice and clean. The bed is quite possibly the most comfy I have ever slept on whist away... with a huge Tempur memory foam mattress, it's like snuggling down into a nest!! Lovely :)
The apartment is very well situated in a quiet residential street. It's an easy walk into Henley town centre, or a two minute drive with plenty of parking once there. Also a fairly quick drive into Reading.
The Wi-Fi worked well, and we also had a pretty reasonable phone signal (Vodafone).
The only thing that could possibly be improved on is to maybe add some blackout blinds, as it's a little light & bright early on these summer mornings. But that's just my personal preference and not a problem.
We look forward to coming back to stay again soon!
Was met by owner, Shahid, upon arrival. He greeted us warmly and proceeded to show us around the unit and explain where everything was and how to work all the appliances. Everything was in the unit that you could possibly need. Lots of Juices, milk, yogurt, cereal, jams, butter, bacon, biscuits, eggs (12), coffee, tea, etc. Much more than we expected for a short 2 night stay. Some canned goods were even in the cabinet as well as staples such as flour, sugar, mustard, catsup, etc. Many choices of shampoos, conditioners, bath gels and soap in the bathroom. Really, he had everything. Bed was very comfortable. The unit is small (garage conversion) but everything was done perfectly to make the best use of the space. Having the washer/dryer was great and a full size fridge is always nice. Even an iron and ironing board. This unit lacks for nothing. Highly recommend. Shahid is in the main house attached so if you need anything he is right there.
This is a lovely studio and we greatly enjoyed our stay. Our host were kind, generous, helpful and accommodating. The studio was clean, well-maintained and very generously stocked for some hearty English breakfasts!
When Henley on Thames throws a party the world notices. This is a town with an international reputation for the world's greatest rowing regatta, the 'joie de vivre' of the summer arts festival plus 80's music feast Rewind to measure up to. And Henley respects tradition.
A 12th century South Oxfordshire market town, Henley's historic heart sits a few strides from the river Thames. The main street has many Georgian frontages covering older buildings and among the 300 buildings within the town designated 'of special architectural or historical interest' are St Mary's church, the town hall, market place and Henley Bridge. Pick up '10 Brilliant things to do', the Henley Environment Trail, the 'Henley Trail' the Henley Town Map or the Visit Midsomer - Southern Trail leaflets to provide more inspiration.
Henley's riverside location – surrounded by a Chiltern landscape of wooded hills and green fields – lends itself to relaxation, long lunches and power shopping. There's a pub where Charles I drank, a Chantry house, a butcher that smokes his own bacon and shops still offering a personal touch.
This is a town dedicated to enjoying the river. So bring a picnic, pick up a copy of Wind in the Willows and settle for an hour on the waterfront. Watch others messing about on the river, or hire a boat and join in the fun – the summer straw boater and stripy blazer combo is optional.
Claim to Fame:
The Royal Regatta and Music and Arts Festival are established highlights of the English social season and give Henley an international reputation but did you know that both Dusty Springfield and George Harrison lived in Henley-upon-Thames until their untimely deaths?

What's on in Henley on Thames:
Henley could easily be renamed Festival-on-Thames for the number and variety of annual arts, sports and traditional events hosted in and around the town.
Each summer 'Henley Reach' sees the world's elite rowers compete at the Royal Regatta. They are cheered on by spectators enjoying the sport, the champagne and the strawberries. Enclosure dress code is strictly enforced yet non-enclosure spectators can equally soak up the occasion and encourage the crews. It's free to watch from the riverside so pick your spot well.
Henley Festival of Music and Arts attracts some of the world´s top entertainers to perform on a floating stage in front of a dinner-jacketed audience. Mixing classical, jazz and popular music, the festival also includes exhibitions of art and sculpture.
Remember to also look out for the fabulous Henley Fringe where many performers hone their acts for Edinburgh; Henley Literary Festival one of the preeminent festivals on the circuit, attracting a host of famous authors, and the 80's Rewind Festival.
