we had a short break in this lovely hotel.
Our room had river views which were magnificent, always boats, canoes ,sailing yacths travelling up and down the river Stour.
The room is well appointed spotlessly clean with very good facilities.
The terrace is a most comfortable area to either sip a wine, beer or a coffee and has lovely river views.
We could find no faults with the superbly cooked and presented dishes in the restaurant.
The steaks are rather on the pricy side though.
The breakfast in particular is top class.
There is a good complementary Spa attached and a menu of treatments which of course are not free!
The bar is a very buzzy place busy until a late hour. Search out the great Cocktails and there is also a good wine and beer selection.
The best recommendation for this hotel is it's staff.
They do make you welcome. They are a credit to their employer, they are professional, cheery and always willing to do their utmost to help.
This an expensive hotel but IT IS 5 star quality.

Room Tip: all the rooms face the river!

The place is in a great setting, the food is ok but not fantastic, better to have fish than meat, i ordered a ribeye and it was not a ribeye and was not rare as i ordered. It was was far from busy but the waiting staff were very very slow. Not sure why. Same thing said over and over again, its about time the owners did something about it.

We had a three bedroom suite which was fabulous with views overlooking the river - so relaxing
The service was excellent, everyone so helpful and friendly. The weather was perfect so we were able to enjoy a fantastic lunch on the terrace. Dinner and breakfast were both superb and would highly recommend. Would definitely go again.

My friends and I were in christchurch fancied going somewhere nice for a drink. I have been many times before and had no problem with the service or the food. Although the cocktail list was varied and interesting we had been given the old one with different prices so instead of £11 it was £13.50. The person buying the round thought it was slighty over priced when we asked the bartender he shrugged it off saying we had the old menu not even bothered to give us our difference. The cocktail was nice but the service was shocking so didnt really enjoy it. What a shame a nice place has gone downhill.

Food excellent. £16 for half a small lobster a tad pricy but cooked to perfection. Chips and salad top quality. Service satisfactory. Not so keen on the oerson vacuum cleaning around tge table whike we were talking. Ambience ok but again, nothing to write home about. View of the river good. Won't go again.

My two friends and I needed a lovely place for a two night stay to say a goodbye to one of our friends who is moving to NZ. We booked a fabulous 2 bedroom suite which had breathtaking views across the river. We travelled a long way and were immediately taken to our room and then were kindly sent up drinks to help us settle in. We had dinner in the restaurant at 9pm which was simply superb! Beds were comfortable and the bathroom facilities very luxurious. Breakfast on each morning was absolutely top notch........ especially the Eggs Benedict and the freshly made Waffles. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. Simply fabulous!

Room Tip: All rooms have wonderful river views.

What a beautiful place to meet friends for brunch. Good value for money and great choice of excellent food. Staff really helpful and courteous.
A quiet place overlooking the river Stour and a variety of people to watch navigating their way along the river. What an absolute joy.
