I spent two nights at this great hotel with my wife, a romantic break for us both. The location is fantastic(on the river and a 2 minute walk to the shops,) the room was luxurious with an attention to detail. We had a fantastic view of the City from our 5th floor room.The bed was very comfortable and the room extreamly peasefull at night. Some of the communial areas display works of art from local artists which are for sale, this adds to the really personal feel of the hotel.
We took advantage of the inclusive breakfast, both continental and cooked were excellent in both quality and choice.
The room also included use of the Spa(Team room,Sauna and Jacuzzi, the jacuzzi looks out onto the river with one way glass, ideal for a spot of people watching whilst relaxing.
I would highly recommend this hotel for that special break, great for value and service.
We will return soon.
