Stayed at The Arden on 6th October 2010 for two nights to celebrate a birthday.
Upon arrival the exterior of the hotel looks modern and very tidy, with lovely gardens and a very smart outdoor patio area.
Upon checking in we were shown to our room by the reception staff (who were lovely, the people complaining must have had somebody different) and they offered to help us fetch bags - although this was not necessary.
Our room was a deluxe room and it was gorgeous. The bathroom was huge, with a gorgeous big bath tub that easily fits two, a double shower, and a giant mirror covering one wall alone. Nice modern fittings and lovely decorations.
The room itself was gorgeous (if a little bit warm during the night!) and had a huge bed - I had to take a running jump to get on it being so small! The bed was divine I didn't want to move once I was on it.
In the fridge you get complimentary bottles of water and a carton of milk for your tea and coffee. we thought this was a nice touch, and you also got about half a dozen choices of tea and some biscuits for dunking!
We didn't have a meal here although had a couple of drinks. These were a little bit more expensive than at a pub but not by anything drastic. The sofas and seats near the restaurant were so cozy, and when I was sitting there I could imagine it being somebodies living room - I wish my house was decorated as beautifully!
The location was perfect, right by the river and town is only at the top of the road. When we went there was quite a lot of roadworks going on outside the hotel but they didn't bother us.
Overall this hotel is a complete gem, and I wouldn't hesitate to return.
