My family went to this beautiful hotel on the weekend of the 19th. Although we knew the weather wont be great at this time of the year. It turned out to be the best weekend ever! We woke up with a beautiful view of the river and it looked so amazing. Will definitely make another trip there soon.

We had a restful week-end by the river and entertained guests on Saturday evening in the restaurant. The bedroom was completely dark which meant we had a great two night's sleep. We witnessed a wedding on the barge tied up on the river and the bride arrived in a boat, very romantic!

Some of the food served should be improved. The cleanliness of linen should really be looked at and the overall cleanliness of the room was not good at all, broken taps in bathroom and the extractor in the bathroom was not working

My second visit to this hotel. The river view from the room's window is wonderful. The hotel is a bit old, so the room's furnitures are, but they are relatively well maintain. Reception service is good, fast and always with a smile. Although the room's cleaner didn't mind that I had finished my shampoo and soap, and did put new... More

Stayed at the hotel this past weekend for my husbands birthday. The hotel hit the mark with thier services and staff. Beautiful view, nice set up in the room. Loved it. The hotel is a bit dated but the services made up for all of that

I have been going to this hotel for breakfast on Sundays for years. It used to be expensive but fantastic but they are slowly they are eroding their offerings (downscaling/downsizing, call it what you will) They used to offer fresh berries, then that stopped. Then they stopped serving cheese slices. They have now stopped serving baked beans with breakfast. Baked... More
