I really recommend this hotel if you want to be in quiet and beautiful place. The hotel is located beside the river, thats why it's called river house. The gardens are beautiful and the rooms big and spacious. The pool area is great and very comfortable to chill out. The hotel only has 36 rooms, so not crowds or queues.

This hotel is in a nice location, some distance from town but a shuttle service is provided for those without their own transport. Rooms are large, well maintained and spotlessly clean. The river view is limited due to trees which also enhance the surroundings. We unfortunately had a medical problem and as a result had to terminate our stay. The...

Our 5-night stay here was just as good second time around. Same room on the 4th floor with a lovely view of the very attractive gardens and across the river. This hotel is an excellent choice for a calm and relaxing stay, with excellent service from all the staff.
