we had a short break in this lovely hotel. Our room had river views which were magnificent, always boats, canoes ,sailing yacths travelling up and down the river Stour. The room is well appointed spotlessly clean with very good facilities. The terrace is a most comfortable area to either sip a wine, beer or a coffee and has lovely river... More

The place is in a great setting, the food is ok but not fantastic, better to have fish than meat, i ordered a ribeye and it was not a ribeye and was not rare as i ordered. It was was far from busy but the waiting staff were very very slow. Not sure why. Same thing said over and over... More

We had a three bedroom suite which was fabulous with views overlooking the river - so relaxing The service was excellent, everyone so helpful and friendly. The weather was perfect so we were able to enjoy a fantastic lunch on the terrace. Dinner and breakfast were both superb and would highly recommend. Would definitely go again.

My friends and I were in christchurch fancied going somewhere nice for a drink. I have been many times before and had no problem with the service or the food. Although the cocktail list was varied and interesting we had been given the old one with different prices so instead of £11 it was £13.50. The person buying the round... More

Food excellent. £16 for half a small lobster a tad pricy but cooked to perfection. Chips and salad top quality. Service satisfactory. Not so keen on the oerson vacuum cleaning around tge table whike we were talking. Ambience ok but again, nothing to write home about. View of the river good. Won't go again.

My two friends and I needed a lovely place for a two night stay to say a goodbye to one of our friends who is moving to NZ. We booked a fabulous 2 bedroom suite which had breathtaking views across the river. We travelled a long way and were immediately taken to our room and then were kindly sent up... More

What a beautiful place to meet friends for brunch. Good value for money and great choice of excellent food. Staff really helpful and courteous. A quiet place overlooking the river Stour and a variety of people to watch navigating their way along the river. What an absolute joy.

I live close by to the Captains Club and it's a great location to sit and watch the world go by. The food is very good and when you compare the prices to other eateries in the area the Captain's Club is comparable, and therefore worth paying the extra pound or so to be sitting in such a lovely environment...

We stayed here for one night to babysit out grandchildren while their parents were at the evening part of a wedding. The room was very spacious and the floor to ceiling windows looked over the river and its banks where there was constant activity even after dark - very entertaining for the little ones. We ordered tapas and drinks for... More

A great weekend spent at the Captains Club. Our room was huge with a beautiful view of the terrace and river. We had lunch and dinner in the restaurant. The food is very good and the seafood was local, with the lobster caught only an hour before! The bar area was busy and a great place to people watch with... More
