We stayed at the hotel for one night in Room 10. The room is quite spacious with nice views over the river. It was bitterly cold outside and although the room was reasonably warm, the bathroom was very cold as the radiator was not working. The electric shower managed about 2 mins of hot water. Also, TV remote batteries were flat.
Dinner is the hotel restuarant was very good with a good choice. Staff were very attentive and pleasant both in the restaurant and bar. Breakfast was OK, but need to do something about cold plates.
The part of the hotel we stayed in needed a serious makeover with rooms requiring upgrading and redecoration. Get rid of the sheets and blankets a switch to duvets. Housekeeping should be checking simple things like TV remotes.
Would we stay again? Probably if it was not the middle of winter
