We so much enjoyed our stay at this old hotel that we will be sure to go back. The owners since May this year are friendly and helpful, and did everything they could to make us welcome. The hotel itself is unusual, with a deliberately old fashioned feel that many others have whitewashed over. But that is what makes it special, as you get a feel for how this place has welcomed travellers since Victorian times.
it could do with an update in some respects, with the odd bit of scuffed decor, and we found our bed a little saggy. Otherwise this would be a five star rating for sure.
The menu is carefully put together and the food is interesting and good quality. One minor gripe is that the wine had not been chilled which was a waste of a good sauvignon blanc.
We were very lucky to accidentally stay here on one of the October weekends when the illuminations are on. There are illuminated boats on the river, and fireworks at 9pm, and the whole town was buzzing with probably thousands of visitors... it was a real great atmosphere and one we hope to get to again.
