About
Description
The Embankment has 20 en-suite B&B rooms, including doubles with king-size beds, twins and family rooms. Rooms 101, 102, 103 and 201 all have spectacular views over the Embankment and the River Great Ouse and are More perfect for a special occasion. We also have a fully wheelchair accessible twin room on the ground floor in an adjoining Victorian cottage. All the rooms have high-quality linen & toiletries and individual touches such as antique gilt-framed mirrors, flat-screen TVs, Wi-Fi access and tea and coffee making facilities. The Embankment is very popular with business travellers who are looking for a more friendly and convivial place to stay than one of the big chains. The Embankment is frequently used by people living in and around the town, who book rooms for friends and family when they are hosting special occasions, in the knowledge that their nearest and dearest will be well looked after.
