Spacious rooms, with a brilliant view to the river. Great garden outside with a pier to the boats, there is various activities to choose from. Decent gym that I enjoyed. Swimming pool, open to locals, so it gets a bit noisy during the day. Also right next to the golf course, so lots of walking and running space. Dinner time...

Before being taken over by BON hotel group this was a really awesome great hotel with great facilities, now the cushions used for the pool lounges are disgustingly terrible, 2nd TVs removed from the family suite, broken shower heads, bad damp= bad stench...

The hotel and it's grounds are awesome. There are a number of small things that could be fixed up as well and I also believe that the level of service from the staff could be improved on. I would stay there again though. Great place!

The hotel is located on an excellent spot. However the rooms a crying for some TLC. Needs an upgrade too outdated. The sleeper couch was falling over. We loved the gardens, the pools and the boat cruise.
