So glad we booked to stay here. We had a beautiful room over looking the river which added to the ambiance of the evening .The room was very comfortable with all the room amenities you could want including a very large bed, the staff were faultless and very friendly. Our stay included a sumptuous breakfast not to be missed. I... More

I wasn't too complimentary in my last post about here but I will speak as I find, it was really good. The staff as ever were wonderfully vibrant, happy and helpful and all in all,... More

Booked for 1 night. stayed in room 102. Beautiful outlook over river. Room huge, very comfy and cosy. Great ambience and 'buzz' in the bar area. Breakfast was lovely. Hot, fresh and tasty. Dog friendly bar to which is nice. Only thing that needs changing in the room is a larger TV. Tiny TV for a large room.

The Embankment has a very good atmosphere- good food and a good selection of wines- the extra plus is that the front of the hotel overlooks the river and the Bedford in Bloom gardens, so is well worth that visit.

Trip advisor review is a bit painful to complete as it requires 200 charecters to complete? What else can be said? It's a good place!

Room well proportioned and the bed very comfortable and had a good night's sleep. Free bottled water. Modern bathroom although shower cubicle somewhat small (good job I am not a large man :)). Supper and... More

The room and facilities were really good. The location was excellent. Breakfast was really nice and the service was quick. It had a lovely feel about the hotel. It looked very pretty with all of the Christmas decorations around . Thank you.
