This is no hotel. It is above a pub (so unsuitable if you don't like stairs!) and becomes populated with students - especially on "happy hour" days. This wasn't a problem and there was no issue with noise either, so that was a plus point. The room was fine, very large with reasonable view of the river and clean. There were tea-making facilities in the room
We didn't try the food, but there is a poor choice of eating places in this town, so I might have changed that decision if I'd known that beforehand
The tv was a tiny 14 or 15 inch affair, on an arm on the wall and a long way away from the bed, so I didn't feel comfortable having it on late at night and watched a dvd on my laptop instead.
When we arrived, we ordered and paid for a cooked breakfast, but in the morning there was absolutely no-one around. There was some food in the kitchen (orange juice cereal, bread, etc) so we did make a cold breakfast before we set off.
Overall, the staff were friendly enough, the room was clean, but the lack of a (paid-for) breakfast) means I won't be staying here again.
