We stayed for a two night break which was very good value. The room was a good size, bathroom modern and the bed had an extremely comfortable memory foam mattress. The food was delicious and staff very friendly. Our bedroom was really cold on the first night and we discovered that the heater was not working properly; the duty manager sent up a very efficient electric heater. This unfortunately disappeared the next day but the heating seemed to be working, but I was not as "toasty" as I would have wished. We also enquired about the lack of hot water; it appears you have to run the hot tap for a long, long time before any hot water comes through. I also though the hotel was a little mean with the toiletries, we only had one small tube of shower gel, shampoo and liquid soap for the two days - as the tubes were not see through you don't know whether you have enough left for the next shower! We did ask for some more soap and shampoo but they never appeared.
The hotel is well positioned and if you're up for it, the 2 mile walk into the city along the river is well worth the time. I would stay at the Hawkwell House Hotel but perhaps when it's warmer, and I would take my own toiletries!
