We had a wonderful lockdown stay during a care visit. The room and views were stunning. The building is beautiful and rooms are very well appointed. The staff are very professional, friendly and courteous. The hotel is currently on a room only basis, but it is possible to have drinks left in the room for your arrival. There are optional breakfast takeaway bags left safely outside the rooms. It is also possible to have meals delivered from deliveroo and others. Overall, a wonderful stay in very strange times. We are very grateful to have been able to stay safely whilst on a care visit and essential journey. Thank you.

Stunning location and beautifully presented hotel- worth visiting just to walk the elegant staircase. Decent and sensible parking regulations. Lovely rooms very well appointed, cheerful staff too serving excellent wines with style. But the food.....apparently the management has got shot of the quality chefs during Covid and boy it shows- barely pub grub- better off eating elsewhere in town.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review, and we are pleased you found our team so welcoming. Unfortunately due to the current restrictions we have had to take the decision to close our fine dining restaurant temporarily and are serving a casual all day dining menu instead. We must apologise if this was not communicated at the time of booking and we will reinforce with our front of house team the importance of this. We plan to relaunch our restaurant in Spring 2021 and hope we can welcome you again then.

Went to the hotel this week just for breakfast. Just wanted to let everyone know that it’s so good. I rate a good breakfast on good scramble egg and theirs was creamy and spot on. Lots of toast and croissants and hot tea. Well worth a visit Claire

We live locally and visit this hotel on special occasions for dinner. We visited it this morning for a breakfast. The views over the river are fantastic. Service is always great. We are particularly thankful for generous bill reduction as they did not have gluten free bread; another positive surprise from this gem.
