We booked for the Sunday night deal - a free room, as long as you spend £75 on food and drink. The hotel is in the centre of town, near both the Thames and the railway station. On arrival, we were upgraded to a better room (with 4-poster bed) without asking, and our bag was taken to our room (unusual this). As the room was away from the main road and the railway, there was no problem with noise, except for the church clock.
Service generally and food were good and portions ample, though the dining room was gloomy - a common problem throughout the hotel. The comfortable bed (with the best pillows I've ever had in a hotel) took up most of the room, and the TV was poorly placed to view. The overhead shower was powerful, but the bath was difficult to get in and out off without a rail, especially for older people. Also, an empty complimentary bottle of water had not been replaced.
