Warm welcome after a day on the road, easy check in, lovely outlook over the river. Great pool in gorgeous setting and at least 30metres so fine for lengths. Room 8/10 bathroom rather old fashioned with shower over bath which could be difficult if had arthritis. Bar 8/10 relaxed overlooking the pool. Dining 8-9/10 great presentation and food and service...

We stayed for one night and found the rooms to be clean and luxurious. The staff were very friendly and attentive. There was plenty of choice for dinner and it was presented very nicely and was very tasty. It would have been nice to stay longer to enjoy the pool!
