This is located in the centre of sandwich by the river. very easy to find. only four parking spaces so you may need to park 100metres away. From the outside the hotel does not look large but it has 45 rooms. The hotel looks very welcoming from the outside, it has the look of an old coaching inn. The reception... More

A lovely hotel near the picturesque river. We were lucky to get one of the hotel's 4 parking spaces but there is a public car park close by charging £7.10 for 24 hours. Staff were pleasant and welcoming and the family room was large with an alcove bedroom for our grandson. We had a midday snack outside the bar area... More

Tiny room on the top floor like an oven with no AC and hairs in the bed - an over rated hotel that desperately needs investment. This is my second experience at the hotel and I'm afraid neither have been good - the location is the upside - in the heart of the town on the river.

For some reason, my smoked salmon sandwich had grit in it, the same thing you get sometimes when salad is unwashed. I valiantly tried to ignore it but couldn't finish my meal. I wonder how on earth the salmon picked up grit?? And it wasn't seeds from the bread before you wonder. Service was very slow too, I wouldn't come... More

Had a lovely lunch of burger and chips both excellent and we were served quickly by charming staff. A very nice couple of hours in the sun watching the world go by. Restaurant was very busy with an assortment of ages so would suit everyone who likes good food and nice surroundings.

Had a River view suite which was very nice, but might need some more attention to detail... The four poster bed had no roof anymore... And there are more comfortable beds around... You have to pay in advance so they dont trust their guests... Reception lady was friendly so was the Restaurant Staff. But imagine you dont get a Sandwich... More

we stayed here last year and had a fantastic time, so we looking forward to our return trip. We stayed in room 18, lovely view on the river, immaculately tidy and clean. Large and very comfortable bed and super large bathroom. Breakfast was amazing, huge portions. But it's the staff who make this hotel work. A caring productive manager, excellent... More

Beautiful day, lovely location. Food fresh and tasty. However...service desperately slow at lunchtime, had to enquire after the main courses (2 cold starters, ham egg and chips and a ham and mustard sandwich and a portion of chips - not exactly complicated). No condiments on the table or offered. 2 desserts and a cup of tea were forgotten altogether. Very... More

An excellent hotel with friendly helpful staff. We were particularly impressed with how quickly small defects, such as a loose knob on a chest of drawers, were put right without it even having to be brought to the staff's notice. If you want a quiet sit in your room it is worth having one of the two suites with a... More
