“Super in every way”
Reviewed 27 July 2014 via mobile

We have just returned from Bridge Hotel having had the most perfect overnight break there. The owner Matt does everything possible to make the guests feel welcome and comfortable; there is great attention to detail with all needs being met. The rooms are tastefully furnished to a very high spec and with every facility one could wish for.

We also hired one of the boats available from the hotel and enjoyed an evening on the river, a lovely end to the day.

Bridge Hotel is the ideal location to base yourself for the many walks and cycle routes in the area. We would not hesitate in recommending this wonderful hotel. We will definitely be returning.

Stayed July 2014

Your review is super in every way too and we thank you enormously for it! If it wasn't for satisfied customers such as yourselves writing about your experiences while staying with us then we would not be getting all the bookings that are coming about from reviews like yours and we are really appreciative of them and your custom. Thanks very much for staying and for posting in the way that you have done.

Tina thanks for your lovely praise and I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay. We did carry out a massive refurb a year ago and are doing all we can to keep the 'newly made' feel that we hope we achieved when we reopened in March last year. Thanks so much for coming to stay and for your positive and generous comments. Do come and see us any time!

The gentleman running the hotel is very helpful and friendly.
The room we were in was quiet and had a lovely view out of the back window, down the river Ouse.
Breakfast was lovely, the bed was comfortable, gorgeous views all round and it's a short walk from the local shops and town square.
We would most definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Room 5 at the rear is quiet and has a lovely view of the Ouse.

My girlfriend and I spent a night and The Bridge Hotel and it was great. We were warmly welcomed and well treated by the hotel owner and staff throughout our stay. The hotel looked like it had been recently refurbished. It was modern, stylish and clean. The bathroom was excellent and the bed was nice and comfy. Breakfast in the morning was good and the conservatory style breakfast room had a lovely view over the river. The only downside was the rain that stopped us from hiring a rowing boat.

We spent a night at this delightful hotel. The welcome could not have been more warming and genuine. Everywhere is spotlessly clean with a very high standard of tasteful decor. Wonderful location next to the river with a large beautiful garden to sit in and watch the river go by. The modern ensuite shower was beautiful to look at and a joy to use. The bed and bed linen would not be bettered by the Ritz Hotel in London. The breakfast was as the late Mr Winner would say, “heroic”. We can recommend this hotel without hesitation

Room Tip: The deluxe double room has a wonderful shower room and you can sit up in bed and see the river.

I do love your description of our breakfast Stephen and the praise for all the other aspects is very generous too and I'm very grateful for it. It is humbling to be compared to an establishment like the Ritz and I'm so glad we took the decision to go with the Mattison Monarch beds as they are proved winners just like Michael himself. Gleneagles hotel has the very same beds as us and we knew that if we could get all the ingredients right the guests would hopefully come. You are helping so much with reviews like this one Stephen and I thank you hugely for it. Come and stay any time.

We made a late booking without research which sometimes backfires, but on this occasion, the experience could not have been better. Matt, the Owner, could not have been more helpful and friendly, the room was very clean and comfortable, the bed was dressed with lovely bedding, the bathroom was functional and the breakfast was great. No catering in the evening, but the short walk into the town and the plentiful number of diverse restaurants was quite welcome after several hours in the car. I have travelled extensively around the UK, Europe and the World, and The Bridge is one of the best small hotels that I have stayed in, and especially good value for money.

Room Tip: Room overlooking the garden would be quieter.

Thank you so much for posting this lovely review Stephen its really kind of you! The good news is we now are offering some very tasty steak meals and house wine in the conservatory restaurant so if you are back again I will be able to offer you a delicious rump or sirloin at night. All we ask is that you let us know before you get here and we will make the arrangements! I'm thrilled too that you found us to be good value for money as we felt that is was important that although we have a competitive pricing policy for the area that the standard of the rooms we offer should be as high as we could make them so that people felt exactly as you have! I'm glad you enjoyed what we have and thanks for posting.

I was on a bicycle trip through England and my stay at Bridge Hotel Brandon was the most impressive and pleasant. The reason for this was not least the extremely friendly behaviour of the host and his staff. He personally took care of the guest's well-being. For example he gave best information you need to enjoy your stay in Brandon and surroundings. He phoned persons in order to get this information when he himself didn't know what was required. The breakfast was excellent and the room was very tidy and highly comfortable. The garden at the river bank has got a beautiful atmosphere.
