We stayed here for three nights with our elderly parents. On arrival we were told our room had had a flood in the bathroom and they had ripped up the floor and were trying to replace it by 5pm that day!! Well some how they did the job and the bathroom was refiitted without a hitch. They had even got the plumber in with a broken leg to help!! Amazing !!!
There rooms were spacious and very clean. Lovely tasteful bedding and soft light duvets. With the river running past your room it helps sends you off to sleep.
We ate in their resutrant that night and the food was superb, you must try thr crab & lobster thermador - it was delicious. The breakfast choice was the best I'v ever seen.
Downside if there is one is the were all the stairs to the rooms. a bit of a struggle for parents nearing 80yrs, and there is no where to sit and just relax. The bar is also the resturant, so you sat at dining tables feeling a bit like you should be eating as well!
Would definatley go back and would recomeded it.
Note: even though this is a tourist area everthing shuts up realy early including the bars! The Wellington had closed by 10.30pm as had the Riverside. We found the Cobweb pub open [mainly for locals] that was dirty and when I asked for a glass of rose wine, the barman topped up the glass with white wine rather than open another bottle!! Disgusting!!
