Stayed Friday and Saturday night on a weekend which was very sunny. Hotel's location excellent - right on the quay and good parking (although had to pay £5 per night). It could be possible that you buy a ticket before checking-in - This is not necessary as it's all done electroniclally in reception - presumably they could adjust any overpayment from the ticket machine at that stage.
We were on the ground floor, which was facing the quay with good views. also very handy to keep returning with shopping etc.. Only problem was that there were outside tables and chairs just outside the window so we felt we had to leave the window closed when the Wedding party had their drinks outside! Otherwise fine as we were out all day.We didn't take dinner or lunch but the breakfast was fine - full choice.
We had a long line of Classic cars on outside on Friday evening - very nice. Bikers come, too apparently.
Room was a little tired but beds were comfy.
Conclusion - good location, food and cheerful staff, bedrooms need an upgrade.
