Firstly, the room........... smelled stale (which is why the cleaners opened your windows every time they came in to clean it) however, the cleaners were always thorough. The rooms though are outdated and worn and are in great need of an upgrade (felt like i was in a 2 * hotel due to decor etc) Staff were always helpful though both on reception and in the bar.
Due to staying on the board basis of dinner, bed and breakfast my main concern was how good/bad the food was going to be. Breakfast was not great tbh i tended to stick to cereals and fruit (although there wasnt a great deal of fruit to choose from). Evening meals from Sunday though to Wednesday night were beautiful (from the chefs special to the steak pie) but then on Thursday night (my last supper as it were) and the chef had changed...........well what a LET DOWN. The steak was burnt, the mash was so far from edible i had to complain and my friends ordered burgers (chargrilled to black) and the tagliatelle was tasteless. Whoever the chef was on Thursday was no where near as good as the chef prior to that or even close to being on par with him. I hope the hotel take note of this.
I would not stay here again i would stay at the 'sister' hotel (four pillars Thames) which has a lovely bar, rooms and has a gym with pool, sauna steam room etc.
