We stayed at the Herron Suite (one of the best rooms at the hotel) after a friend's wedding reception. From the outside, the hotel looked fantastic. Great looking heritge building by the river in a nice old English town. Once we stepped inside the room we were bitterley disappointed. Although suite had a nice living room and 2 TVs, there was no fridge. The worst part was the bizarre layout of the room. Lights to the living room was turned off from the bedroom, there were no obvious power points for the tea making facility (so the tea pot was plugged into a PowerPoint of the floor). The bathroom was small compared to other suites we have stayed in. On top of this there was no WIFI connection at our suite. This is poor value for money given the rate of £232 a night.
To finish with a positive note the breakfast and the service was great the next morning.
