Good hotel, Nice and clean room, Bar was lovely as was the drinks they served. Bath was great to sink in to after a long drive. Was let down by the very lumpy bumpy uncomfortable bed. Looked great but as soon as you pulled the duvet back and climbed in you could feel the uneven nature. This meant for a... More

The hotel has undergone a fabulous refurbishment. The downstairs area is very welcoming and gets very busy with locals and guests. The rooms are spotlessly clean with good quality linen. Personally, I found the heating too high and turned the radiator off in my room. I couldn't adjust/turn off the heated towel rail in the bathroom. Minor details could be... More

I booked in for an overnight stay for work and required no more than a place to work and somewhere to sleep. I got much more. Great welcome, a beautiful, spotless, room with river views and a huge free standing bath, and helpful service throughout. I ate dinner and breakfast here - both delicious. I would thoroughly recommend it for... More

First time at this hotel and it won't be the last! Very comfortable room, spotlessly clean, excellent extras - tea/biscuits/toiletries/mineral water. Had one breakfast and one dinner during our stay and the food was superb!

A mixed experience for my first stay in this hotel. It was a celebratory birthday outing with my sister, and I had chosen the hotel specially. As a four star hotel, I was surprised that some basic amenities were not present : No telephone in the room, so I had to revisit reception via the stairs on a number of... More

Can't rave about this hotel enough, truly superb in every way. Stayed here just before Christmas and entertained a customer in the evening. As I walked in through the main dining room the rows of "father xmas" hats really put a smile on my face, wonderful touch. Nice friendly reception and a fantastic room. The meal was truly superb as... More

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

we have gone to this establishment for a couple of years to have Christmas Dinner. It was really enjoyable and we thought, thoroughly good value. 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.
