The location is simply amazing - especially on a hot, sunny June evening. The rooms were OK, functional but not brilliant. The evening meal - served on the patio overlooking the River Don - was of a high standard and very reasonably priced. Unfortuneatly, breakfast left a lot to be desired. On balance, our stay was OK but expensive for what was on offer.
