Stayed one night in a "Superior" room. The room had a balcony with a lovely view. The room was clean and comfortable with a nice bathroom attached. Some attention to small details however would greatly improve the experience of staying here. There was no blind or curtain to cover the large bathroom window making you feel very vulnerable when using the loo or shower especially at night. Agreed that the angle of view from houses close to and the houses across the river means that you cannot be seen actually sitting on the loo but standing and using the shower exposes the top body to view - perhaps unlikely but disconcerting nevertheless. The lack of a loo roll holder - again not a major issue but fiddling around with a loose roll irritates and it is surely not a major expense item or effort to provide one? A shelf above the sink that threatens to damage your forehead when shaving. Lack of mains plug sockets in the room to enable charging of phones/tablets etc., which so many travellers need now, as well as keep the lights on - a couple of cheap extension sockets (£5 from B&Q) would be the answer. Silly little things like this are an irritant but could be solved so easily and cheaply. In our 2 week trip staying at many different places we found that most B&Bs, hotels did think about such conveniences and detail.
The bar and restaurant were good and the staff were very pleasant and helpful. The food was fine. Breakfast was good too. Overall a pretty good place to stay but sorting out those little touches would make it better.
