The Anne Boleyn Hotel, now under new management is a charming 3 star listed hotel opposite the River Thames, dating back to the 16th century.

Famous for her marriage to Henry VIII, her large dark eyes were often prominent in descriptions of Anne.
She used them, and the fascination they aroused, to her advantage. It is a centuries old rumour that beneath the three thousand year old yew tree at Ankerwycke Priory, Wraysbury (built c1150), Henry VIII courted Anne Boleyn. The Royal Couple used to travel through Staines by barge on their way to Windsor Castle.
