    • Location brilliant for shopping and we parked in the multi storey car park. Excellent hotel all round and the river lots of great pubs and restaurants. Very friendly helpful staff, nice comfy rooms and the pool is large and the jacuzzi, sauna steamroom all very good. The leisure facilities for a four star are just ok.

      Service was very slow, fittings in the bathroom were a bit tired and the breakfast was not the best to be honest.

    • The location was perfect and we waited 45 minutes and were told, just a few more minutes. The hotel was beautiful, service was excellent and on arrival the receptionist was very friendly. The room was lovely, spacious and in particular the bar staff were great.

      Not good value for money and lobby area busy a lot of kids running around. Breakfast could be improved.
