To be fair, we didn't stay - we had Sunday lunch. What a fantastic deal it was! Although almost empty when we turned up at 12 noon, the place was humming within 45 minutes. The locals clearly know that they'll get a superb roast lunch for a little over £10. Perfect starter too - big juicy mussels; an amazing pear/stilton/walnut.... More

Lovely setting and very friendly staff. Was however disappointed with the size of the room and very low ceiling. There was also no lift which meant I had to carry my own bags up three flights of steep stairs. For the price I didn't think it justified the room. Also the car parking wasn't great, the hotel has a bar... More

stayed here for Saturday night, our room overlooked the marina and was a good size and very clean, we had a great continental breakfast and what a treat to have staff who pre-empt that you may want more tea, butter etc,, fantastic value for money and service on a par with a 5 star hotel, thanks

The room was very spacious, had a fabulous view of the marina and a very comfortable bed. All staff were very friendly and attentive throughout and... More

We've stayed here before, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. Our room was HUGE, all set up beautifully for valentines day, including a travel cot for our son. Great customer service, wine, food and views, love it. Exceptional value for money too.

What can I say, other than excellent. The staff could not have been more helpful and our room was superb. Modern, good size and wonderful view. My club sandwich at lunchtime was great and the Valentine meal was good value and a great success. My only criticism was that the WiFi receptin was poor at times (overload?) and the continental...

My husband had the beef which was also very good.Being a... More

Loved this, the food was great and the view but above all the staff were so welcoming and attentive. Nothing was too much trouble and they were discretely attentive but not intrusive. The coffee and salted caramel ice cream is the best I have ever had. Can't wait to visit again
