Twin room with comfy sturdy beds. All the amenities you would expect. Friendly staff who make you feel welcome. Relaxing to be able to see the river which runs past. The room has a full sized bath with shower over it. Everything was very clean

Used online booking site for late reservation for 1 night bed & breakfast prior to collecting our caravan from nearby Lowdhams. Had to wait a while to check in as this was handled by a very busy member of the bar staff. Room was clean & comfortable, & we enjoyed a very good evening meal. A good breakfast was provided...

Staff were friendly, hotel was clean, rooms were large and clean also, comfy bed, shower was ok... but could have done with a bit more of a clean, bit of lime scale and water marks but fine. Bar was open fairly late so we had a drink after Tom browns also

Stopped here for a bite to eat and a coffee after walking our dog along the Trent. Great little dog friendly place that sells lively coffee (full bar available) and decent pub grub, both light bites and full menu. Staff were chirpy and were great with our pooch.

Lovely hotel in a delightful location. Rooms are big bright and airy. My only criticisms would be having taken a shower I noticed the shower gel bottle was empty ( although if I had remembered to bring my own shampoo then this would not have been a problem) and sin join sin the ketchup served at breakfast was not Heinz!!....

Arrived today at 12-30 for a lunch with the family. Having placed our order for food and drinks we had to wait what seemed like an eternity. On arrival of our main course the waitress managed to hit the back of my head with one of the plates. Two of the hot lunches were served with warm chips! No wonder...
