We booked a stay online having used it for a friends wedding a few years ago and thought we deserved a weekend away.
The hotel has modern air to it. The patio and riverside setting is beautiful and it has the bar and restaurant overlooking the river. Ate in the hotel both nights and although quiet the service from the kitchen was painfully slow. The food when delivered was good and reasonably priced. Nice wine list.
The staff are charming and attentive and we enjoyed watching the bar staff creating various cocktails whilst being boring with our beer and wine. It is very popular and busy during the day with locals using the bar and restaurant which makes the hotel appear busier than it is but we were able to find tables and get served.
Rooms are spacious and clean, our mattress I felt was just the wrong side of its us by date,
Overall I felt it was a good time but thought the rooms expensive. Would I go back, not sure at those prices.
