A quirky mix of old an new, the hotel has been expanded to and added to in a few phases, making it a little bit of a maze, or adventure, to find your room.
The staff match the hotel in quirkiness, but this all adds to the flavour. The hotel is right on the banks of the Thames, was fun in the Feb flooding, hats off to the staff for keeping the river at bay, and nicely located for the town centre, bus & railway stations.
The menu is a little limited, and no specials I have noted as catch of the day is always Tuna, but as 2 mins from the town centre lots of other choices.
All the rooms I have stayed in have been a reasonable size and with a large flat screen TV with Freeview channels, the beds vary from firm to very soft and due to the location on a major junction some of the rooms on the road side can be a little noisy.
As per another review, housekeeping can be a little eager so would advise, 'Do not disturb' hung on door and chain put on if you are planning being in the room after 08:00, this may be due to the majority of regular guest being business type and normally clear of the room about then.
