This is a lovely hotel . Yes it's not stark -ish uber modern but is very comfortable . I read the reviews beforehand and they had actually put me off booking and I had booked for the premier inn instead but once the prices had dropped to £125 per room including breakfast I booked for one night just a classic room so wasn't expecting much. When I was shown to room 9 however I couldn't have been happier . This is a dual aspect room looking over the weir and the river / church and had a huge bathroom with heated floor and 2 bathrobes. Nothing to complain about. We liked it so much we decided to stay another night . We had to move to room 10 which is admittedly smaller and the bathroom is very small this time with no underfloor heating but still has a bath . Perfectly adequate room and so greAt to actually be able to open the windows . The breakfast is great esp the fry up . Yes the 12.5% service charge is annoying although I don't think this is different to any other hotel so I am not sure why other reviewers were surprised by this . The premier inn did btw look perfectly respectable but I am more than happy to have stayed here in this lovely hotel with great service .
