This is a fantastic hotel, in the river, with wooden pods you can eat overlooking the river or sit in open restaurant. The river view rooms are retro style with really nice beds and old fashioned bath tub where two people can sit. All new and modern but retro style. Very clean and very friendly staff. My favourite hotel I think.

The room - Deluxe room was quite small, I would argue it’s not a deluxe size room. Pros - The decor was very nice, modern, very clean. King size bed was exceptional, very comfy. A huge bonus was the fresh milk in the fridge. Iron and board, a safe and a decent size tv with a great picture! Overall very good. Bathroom - very clean and great selection of soaps. Cons - However, there is no air con! We kept waking up throughout the night, not a great nights sleep at all. Huge disappointment as the room was extremely hot. The hotel cannot be blamed for false advertising either as it does states ‘room fan’ and that’s what you get, a very noisy fan pushing warm air around the room. There was only 3/4 of a toilet roll, no spare even though there is an additional holder in the bathroom. Initially there wasn’t any hot water for a shower, we informed reception and they said they had to reset the boiler and we waited 20 minutes. Not a real problem but not what we expected from this type of hotel. Room cleaning - On our second day we went out for a few hours. We left the usual door notice hanger ‘please clean my room’, we left at 1000 and returned at 1300 hoping our room was cleaned, fresh towels and loo roll restocked; it was not. We phoned reception, they called back after 30 minutes and we could choose either 1500 or 1630 for a room clean and new towels and restocked loo roll. Again not really what we we expect from this type of hotel, huge inconvenience.
