Value for money with outstanding meals, A gem of a manager Winston where nothing was too much trouble with the rest of the staff being polite, friendly and very accommodating. the room itself were very clean & spacious with lovely views.

Though we arrived late, the staff was quite accomodating and helpful as our booking was not immediately picked up The two nights we spent in your establishment were fine and we would definitely will pop in again once we are in the area.

It was a good overnight stay. Looking forward to longer stay. The location is excellent but there is a need to do some upgrading. The shower was too small for my liking and also room keys are old fashioned and big. organise modern locks such as card system.

We had to share our dinner with a private family celebration without being notified. The food was good, but the whole evening was ruined by very loud music and speeches made for the not-so-private family function.

It was a weekend get away and overall we had a great stay. The staff is very friendly and accommodating more especially the Spa ladies. I think the hotel is one of the oldest, the rooms are nice but can do with some revamping- for instance the flooring needs to be changed, the couch in our room needs to go...

Good value for money. Breakfast excellent. Overall cleanliness is a little lacking, which I guess is to be expected for a oldish hotel. Service is excellent. Spa top class/excellent. River cruise fun.
