Very friendly owners greeted us. This was a lovely old place, down to earth and comfortable, especially the bed with electric blanket. The only thing I'd fault it was we needed bathmats or a mop as the massive open shower in our room wet the floor and the bathroom was cold. A note of warning the Italian restaurant across the...

The Hotel matches the town and river ambience beautifully. Hosts Deb and Martin were gracious but also ready for conversation and humour when invited. We loved our room and especially enjoyed the open fire .

The hotel itself is quite nice (liked the 4 poster beds) and very central, but we had a somewhat Fawlty Towers experience here - possibly due to the manager's regretting at having listed the hotel on last minute web sites at a cheap price. Basically a combination of scatterbrain, not knowing what each other were doing, unfriendly and rude -... More

Hi Richard, Discount rate gets you full class quality and service at Bordello Hotel Bar & Spa. There was no confusion by us and we choose to discount the rates, as do all accommodation providers, rather than have empty beds. You came down to breakfast at 9.45, and were advised that checkout was at 10, and that the cleaner needed... More

My husband and I recently enjoyed two nights at the Bordello Hotel. Martin welcomed us like old friends. We had a really good rate of $125 a night that I found with booking.com. The room was very comfortable and a little bit different from the norm and this rate also included a cooked breakfast. We enjoyed a lovely tapas dinner... More

Great food. Genuinely passionate hosts. Great location and a selection of the best beers in the world, what more can anyone want. Great selection of wines and loved the view from the balcony. Also enjoyed the spa. Tourist attractions like the Paddlesteamers are very close and restaurants are in easy walking distance.

We stayed and played at the Bordello over the recent Queen's Birthday weekend. The hosts Martin and Debbie made us feel like long lost friends from the moment that we checked in. The room, although a little rough around the edges (but what building of this age isn't) was full of character and had a very comfortable bed and great... More
