Fantastic accomodation, breakfast 2nd to none for choice, evening menu overpriced as is their "premium internet". This hotel really has what it takes to be a top top place to stay but is let down by a few little things. Firstly, how can you charge your guests £6 a night to park on top of your accomodation? I really see... More

I recently had the good fortune to stay at the Pentahotel and found that every aspect of the hotel was fantastic. My room was well designed and spotlessly clean. The funky bar had a relaxed atmosphere and breakfast & evening meals were consistantly great. I'd especially like to thank all of the staff who were so friendly and heplful throughout... More

Don't often write reviews based on my stay at hotels as I'm forever living week by week out of a suitcase, however I've just got back from a cracking week away, the hotel was outstanding. Very clean hotel with a friendly atmosphere and the food was exceptional. Couldn't recommend PentaHotel highly enough for all ages.

Stayed here couple weeks ago and thought I’d give some feedback. Breakfast was exceptional, £15 worth the value for a cooked full English breakfast. Room was spotless, wide-open shower and bed very untroubled to sleep in with an overview of the river like always! Thank you to the housekeeping department including reception and food and beverage team. Purchased for car... More

Stayed at this hotel last season, again on a football weekend, when it was called Ramada Hotel. It has had a makeover in the reception and bar area, we arrived late on the Friday night and did wonder what we had booked into, the lighting was very subdued and it didn't really feel like a hotel, more like a pub/nightclub....
