We stayed here to attend our friends wedding reception along with several more members of the wedding party. The check in staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was at the back of the hotel so no river views but it was very large with a 6 foot bed and plenty of room for a settee as well. Everything was spotless and we especially liked the underfloor heating in the bathroom. The meal at the wedding reception was lovely as was the evening buffet. The service at the meal was very efficient but we felt the evening staff were a bit over zealous. Sometimes we had barely finished a drink when the glass was removed. On one occasion plates were removed before we had finished our last mouthful of food.
Breakfast was a buffet, the food was plentiful and there were plenty of choices for all tastes. It is served until 12 o'clock
at weekends if you wanted a long lie in. The room was large enough for lots of the wedding party to sit at tables near to each other which was lovely. The thing which struck us as a bit strange was that coffee was served to us at our table but if you wanted tea you had to go and get it yourself.
Over all a lovely hotel right on the river and with easy access to the town centre.
