Stayed here on a couple of occassions and is centrally located in the city on the banks of the river. Staff are very friendly and effecient and although I've not had an evening meal, the breakfast is good. On my last visit the reception was extremely busy and we had to wait, nothing the staff could do about that, however we were offered a complimentary glass of wine while we waited, a very nice touch. The rooms are very traditional and comfortable, but before long a refurbishment may have to take place. I've always had a room overlooking the river as there's pleanty to interest me with the local boating club going up and down! The pool is excellent with steam room and sauna and plunge tub if you're brave enough! Look forward to my next visit
