Stayed for two nights at this hotel. Managed to park in the car park next to the hotel. Only found out later that there was another car park available a short distance away. This is a very good hotel to experience old English charm. We found all the reception staff very friendly and helpful. Our room (217) was OK, small and with no view only the pub windows next door. Bathroom design was not good, difficulty getting in and out of bath due to glass shower screen. Not a good room for anyone less agile! If you want views and space, then you need to state this when booking and pay for the extras. Breakfast was very good with plenty of choice and wonderful views from the dining room. Hotel is central to everything, boat trips, restaurants etc. Overall a very enjoyable stay.
