Stayed here for 3 nights for a wedding and absolutely loved it. Room overlooked the river with beautiful views (I think most, if not all of the rooms have this view). The service was top notch (even a complimentary glass of bubbly on check-in!). The bedding was VERY comfortable and the bathroom luxurious. Food was great. Lovely breakfast spread (and you could order breakfast to your room at no extra cost!). I didn't use the spa but it looked really nice. We did have a dip in the hot tubs on the deck area which face right out onto the river, absolutely gorgeous!
The only TINY negative I would have was that there was an intermittent humming/motor type noise which we could hear quite clearly in our room - I don't know if it was the air con system or some kind of water pump or what, but it seemed to be only there the first night and after that either it wasn't there or I stopped noticing it. Also the sound proofing between rooms could be a tad better, but thankfully we didn't have any noisy neighbours!
All in all I had a fantastic stay - and for the standard of service and accommodation, the price tag was quite reasonable.
