The welcome was friendly and the room was what you would expect and had decent toiletries as well as a hairdryer. For me the breakfast was really good and fresh with plenty of choice including the option to have omelettes and other items cooked to order.

We recently stayed at this hotel, and to be honest had a bit of a problem with the booking, not anyones fault, just a genuine error, but was spoiling our stay. The manager got involved and to say he went out of his way to ensure the problem was rectified is an understatement. He was genuinely upset that we werent...

Lovely hotel situated just on the outskirts of the city. Nice walk into the main shopping and pub areas. Very quiet because it's just over the river and away from main road. The rooms are quite spacious, bed comfortable and they gave tea and coffee facilities in the room. We did not have breakfast because it seemed expensive

Good location on the riverside with easy river walk access to the city centre. Car park is additional cost at £8 for 24hrs and some major building works next door make accessing more...

I booked us a superior room and the view from the hotel room window was amazing. The room was very clean and was a decent size room. The hotel location...
