We stayed here for 3 nights due to work being done in our house that required access to a large area of our bedroom, we got a good advance booking rate that made staying here a more attractive proposition than elsewhere.
We had a nice room with a view of the river.
Comfortable bed, air conditioning, fridge, safe, a bath as well as a shower.
There was a heated towel rail in the bathroom but it only switches on when you have the bathroom light on, so if you go in for a quick shower it does not have enough time to heat the towels anyway.
Wifi in public areas is free but Internet access in your room, if you require it, is charged as an extra and not a cheap extra either, as is parking and when we checked out they tried to charge us for breakfast (x4) and neither of us had actually had breakfast there on any of the mornings, this was quickly put right but I feel that what is supposed to be a premier 4 star establishment should be able to get your bill right the first time.
Overall stay was pleasant enough and the staff are polite and friendly.
