Wonderful stay
- lovely hotel with a great history - buffet dinner was nice and with lots of variety. Laura who served us was fantastic and the most welcoming staff member - Nice pool bar and great to have snooker and table football - really lovely touch to send us a post card - comfortable bed and nice room - only issue is that the aircon was not great so the room felt very warm at time

Hotel is lovely! Beautiful, clean rooms, gorgeous outdoor area and dining outside over the river! The staff was always helpful and accommodating, from welcome drinks to fetching a corkscrew and opening our wine for us because we forgot ours! They went out of their way to make sure our rooms were all near each other and that our stay was perfect! We also loved that the hotel is located outside of the loud and crowded city center. This hotel was very peaceful and relaxing! Felt like we were instantly transported to a calm, beautiful place. Will stay here again!
