“Lovely setting, terrible service and food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2013

Having to fetch own drinks from the bar and to try and find someone to take a food order, our meals including the ubiquitous hair in the chicken basket arrived. The waiter was not at all concerned with the hair in the food and seemed to disappear for the rest of the meal.

“Nice place to eat”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2013

The setting is nice, overlooking the river, though it was rather cool to sit on the terrace.
Food OK, nothing special. Friendly service.

“Family lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2013

This hotel is located in a very nice area. although far from the city centre, it offers what any traveller requires, good bed and good food. This is also an excellent place for a family lunch. After a scrumptious meal, one can take a walk on the beach. Rates are reasonable.

“Nice place to be!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2013

The food is divine! The place is to die for, breeze from the beach, the trees and the cleanliness of the hotel. Its a number 1 hotel in East London.
