Have a look at the map, don't go beyond Kingston or Hampton Wick. You can even get river transport into the city, and to some great places further up the river.
Many tourists end up staying close to roads or rail, but I would really advise that if you can find a good Thames-valley riverside town/suburb, you get the best of everything. When Sony did an event we got a very good deal from the Antoinette Hotel in Kingston-on-Thames (a really nice regular-grade small company not a huge chain). It was also great to be able to walk out into the town, with riverfront pubs and restaurants, in the evening without the prices or hassle of central London. There are major historic houses, palaces, gardens and wildlife areas very close by.
