We don't often go out for a meal,but as we have just had a week off work, we thought we would finish the week off with a meal. Haven't been to the Bridge House for some time, so didn't know what to expect.? What we can say, it all was First Class. The greeting when we arrived and taken to... More

Staff were very friendly and hotel was extremely clean and rooms more than adequate. Only down side is ground floor rooms at front look onto a busy road. When you open curtains in morning you feel very exposed as there are no nets or blinds so we ended up keeping curtains closed. On one occasion we were in room with... More

On previous visits we have stayed in a room overlooking the river but not this time, we overlooked the road, which can be a little noisy with the window open so... More

Me and my wife had a wonderful weekend away at the bridge house hotel, the staff were fantastic always making the effort to say hello. The room was clean, a large size and well laid out. Would recommend to anyone wanted a quiet weekend away with excellent service and delicious food.

Just returned from a 3 night stay and, sad to say, was very disappointed by the overall standard of the hotel. Firstly, the rooms had very poor air conditioning which meant they were always very warm. We stayed on a weekend which wasn't particularly hot outside either. We were reluctant to open the windows because a) there was a sign... More
