Me and my partner visited The Waterfront on friday the 19th of september, my partner had booked our table for two at 7.00. As my partner and I are from Leeds we set of early so we would have plenty of time to find The Waterfront. We arrived outside at 6.45 and went to walk in only to be rudley... More

looked like it would be really nice from the outside well how wrong was I! Turned tables away when it wasn't even half full, the chef was smoking in the back room and drinking wouldn't recommend this to anyone!

We stayed here for 2 nights. We chose to have the back room as we were warned about the noise from the river. Very quiet room, was a little small due to having a double and a single bed. Room, sheets and bathroom were clean. Shower didn't have much pressure but was easy to operate. Clean towels left outside the... More

Decided to try this restaurant as location was very pretty. as we entered we thought it was a quaint little restaurant. the waitress was very welcoming and friendly. whilst looking through the menu we noticed that prices were on the dearer side but we assumed the quality would match. we both decided to go for the set menu. my partner...

This canot be called hotel accomodation...It is a shabby bedsit plus shower at best, entrance to room off the street, with black mold in the shower. The quilt cover obviously not changed and matching pillows dirty! Sheets and other pillows were clean though. Host very pleasant but definitely not worth the money.

having read conflicting reviews of this hotel we were happy to find a warm welcome to a lovely room. We were shown a room overlooking the river, and warned that this could be noisy but we could move to a quieter room without the view. We stayed with the view. The noise was not a problem, we could hear music,... More
