I probably wouldn't expect so much but this place is £2 over our standard hotel room price limit (so yes I paid £2 of my own money to stay here). The location is fine with nice enough views of the famous river & bridges. The noise from the adjacent rail bridge was minimal. The room was huge - another place would have shoved in a small sofa and called it a suite. The room service jacket potato arrived with the cheese but without the requested coleslaw (no apology offered).
I was a bit disappointed with the leisure facilities - the pool was ok but small, deserted, and I can see it seemed like a good idea to have it at ground level next to the river but in fact it just made it slightly creepy with the dark figures occasionally passing the dark (and dirty) windows. The jacuzzi was defunct and the steam room smelled funny. But otherwise an uneventful and adequate stay.
