I stayed in this hotel for one night with my two daughters. We were in a super king room, which was very spacious even though occupied by three adults. The room was stylish and clean and the shower in the wet room was powerful. We all enjoyed a peaceful nights sleep. From the moment we walked into the reception the staff were very pleasant and eager to please, including the staff in the spa, and the service provided exceeded that of larger chain hotels I have visited. We did have to go outside for approximately three or four metres to access the restaurant, however, we did not see this as a problem and we were escorted all the way to the door of the restaurant, which was a lovely room overlooking the river.
The location was good, as close to the hustle and bustle but down a quiet small lane.
I liked the friendly service best and the thing I liked least were the feather pillows, however I must stress even they were fluffier than most. I love hollow fibre pillows, but have yet to stay in a hotel that supplies them.
Our stay was thoroughly enjoyable and I have already booked a return visit.
