    Like I said I do believe the rooms need a revamp. I did enjoy my stay but believe if you have improved rooms your ratings would improve. The site is amazing and staff all friendly. Have a great day and good value for money. cheers

    Value for money in a lovely setting. Make sure you book a river view room which has a balcony. The main hotel does not compare quite as well. Very helpful and friendly reception. Will definitely re book for our 2018 road trip.

    Very reasonable rates, but the hotel needs a lot of maintenance and modernisation. The room however was clean and very comfortable. We had a lovely view over the river. Close proximity to many good restaurants too.

    The hotel has lots of potential especially as a (weekend) family destination. Unfortunately it is worn down and very dirty. The sheets and pillows were very old and smelly even new linen was on top. Needs to be renovated urgently! Breakfast is good.
