We stayed here the night before a family wedding. It was really nice to stay in a place that is good value, doesn't take itself too seriously and has great food. The location is great for the town centre too.

We booked this hotel last-minute and didn't know what to expect so we were delighted to find such a great place to stay almost by accident! The staff were helpful and professional, just the right degree of attentiveness and awareness of our needs, from those on reception to those in the bar and in the restaurant. We loved the setting by the river - the terrace outside is a great place for a pre-dinner drink. The bar has an excellent choice of drinks, efficiently dispensed and with a smile! The evening meal was delicious; breakfast also very good. Our room was clean and comfortable - we were very pleased to be able to open the window rather than have to suffer the usual vagaries of hotel heating systems. It's a great achievement to ensure this level of consistency of service across an operation of this size - well done and thank you to all the staff.

Stayed for one night midweek in Sept. Arrived at 10pm, problem no parking. Check in hassle free and very welcoming, dumped our bags and enjoyed last orders in the bar! Our room overlooked the car park (but that was what we were expecting), nice quiet room a little small and basic but adequate and clean. Nice bathroom with shower (no bath). Heating controllable. Tea coffee and biscuits provided with lovely large mugs. Lack of plug sockets disappointing and found it difficult to plug in hairdryer near mirror. Breakfast was included in price, very you could choose cooked breakfast from menu and help yourself to cereal and pastries etc. Food was excellent though we thought the large breakfast might have been bigger than it was. A very enjoyable flying visit, booked very last minute so good value for what we paid. I would definitely recommend and hope to stay again soon

We have stayed here on various occasions whilst visiting family nearby and wouldn't consider anywhere else. It has always been delightful, but everything seems to have gone up a notch recently, - service, room care, food. We stayed in one of the front rooms overlooking the river and embankment, and though you can hear the noise from people sitting outside the bar below, that stopped completely at closing time and it was then very peaceful. The room was spacious with ample room for a sofa, the bed was very comfortable, the decor charming and quirky; the bathroom clean and well appointed. Food, as always was a high point of the visit - we have never been disappointed. We will return!

Room Tip: Large front rooms are worth the extra.

My husband and I stayed for one night in August. We had visited the hotel previously and had coffees in the bar which is why we decided to give it a go. A lot of effort has gone into a very tasteful renovation. I remember this place from years ago and it was lovely to see it had been developed into a relaxing but stylish venue. The staff and manager were very friendly and incredibly accommodating. A huge plus was when we were upgraded to a much larger room! We have previously stayed at the more expensive hotel just down the road but will definitely consider staying here again and have no hesitation in recommending it to others.
