Very nice hotel, nice room and right on the canal. We booked a table in the hotel restaurant and booked for the tasting menu for 1 person and when we arrived was told minimum was for 2 people. Looked at on-line menu and no mention of this. No apology. The restaurant was overpriced for the meals served, but service was... More

Really lovely room in very nice location. We enjoyed a walk along the canal and appreciated all the local information provided by the river and canal trust. We had dinner at the restaurant, which was good, but a little overpriced for what it was. Nicely presented and good quality, but not quite warranting the fine dining prices.

This is a mist attractive restaurant/hotel in a very pleasant position. The food and service were good but the pricing was a little too high for what we had. Despite going there with a £59 voucher got 2 it still ended up too much money with a bottle of overpriced wine and a service charge.

I don't normally write harsh reviews but there are limits. We were celebrating my daughter's birthday and this venue was recommended by one of her colleagues. I don't know if they were understaffed in the kitchen on that evening or we were just forgotten, but the service was very, very slow. Four cold starters (2 carpaccio & 2 goats cheese)... More

We took a weekend overnight break to attend the food festival on Sunday. We chose to eat out although the food smelt and looked really good so next time we would certainly consider trying this. From the moment of check in the staff were very friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Our room was f a very good... More

Stayed on a Monday night on business when the restaurant is closed. The staff had stayed behind to wait for me, very thoughtful. Gave me a choice of rooms, all looked very comfortable. Modern and stylish room, comfortable bed and deep bath with shower over. Good facilities, mini bar in the room and tea and coffee facilities. Delicious breakfast. Very... More

Unless you want to be actually in the city centre, the Wharf House is in a good location on the A40 just outside the city, and local paths connect with both the city and outlying areas. Room was spotless, comfortable, and well equipped. Restaurant - the dinner was to a very high standard and there was certainly enough of it;... More

Chose this guest house because I was travelling with 2 small dogs and they offered suitable accomodation. The room was well appointed with luxury Villeroy & Boch crockery and a wide selections of refreshments. The room itself was spaceous and airy with a large luxury ensuite bathroom comprising of a whirlpool spa bath and powerful wetroom style shower. The restaurant... More

We booked 3 deluxe rooms for 3 nights for a family get-together before a wedding. The rooms were comfortable, clean and well equipped, cosy without being cramped, good jacuzzi bath and shower. Breakfast on both days was excellent and we enjoyed a very good family dinner the evening before the wedding, all 3 courses were tasty, well cooked, good quality,... More

An attractive 'superior' B&B... very good food - but not cheap. Rooms pleasantly appointed - shower ran very hot - be warned (did mention this on check out) - friendly staff. A nice walk into the city - but clearly way marked all the way - more for the adventurous.
