Stayed 2 weeks ago and it is a superb setting for a relaxing time away from it all the location is perfect and although some parts of the hotel are in need of investment the overall experience was worth the price.

Yes it is worth paying the upgrade. Last time we did it, The room was quite roomy especially the bath room. If you ask for a room at the front overlooking the river you will be well pleased.
