Sitting up above the river this hotel enjoys an excellent location for extended views across the river / city and beyond. A warm reception and helpful staff make for a comfortable stay. The superior rooms seem to have been supplied with 3/4 beds though - so for a couple staying just check what bed you room has before you settle... More

Most of the rooms are old and have not been renovated in decades. I've stayed in a few different rooms and in one the heating didn't work, in another the bed side lamps were out, in the latest there was an electric outlet without cover and wires exposed. The beds quite hard and feel like they should have been replaced... More

Stayed here for two nights (friday-sunday) on a conference weekend. The rooms are ok, but nothing extraordinary. The hotel staff is kind and friendly, but only do what is required, they don't go the extra mile to let you feel special, but instead treat you like any other guest. There was one in the staff however, Timothy, who did everything... More

I have been here several times but I have to say that the room view that I get every time is just awful, parking spot. So you need to be lucky to get a room with a good view. Small rooms. The service was average. There is nothing close to this hotel.
