I enjoyed my stay here, despite a small mix up at the start where I had been booked into a second room floor despite specifically asking for a ground room floor due to having a broken foot. This was quickly remedied and i was moved to an accessible room on the ground floor. The room had its own heat pump so i could adjust the temperature to suit me and underfloor heating in the bathroom meant no cold toes during the night! I was slightly worried about noise after reading some of the reviews but there were no issues here - they had two events on while I was there and while you could hear them in the hallways once you were in your room you couldn't hear them plus they had fire doors which were closed from about 6pm that totally blocked the noise out. The staff were very helpful and little things made a difference for me given i am using crutches at the moment. I would happily visit here again (hopefully with out a broken foot)

We booked a river view room, expecting a private balcony, but were on the ground floor, opening onto a concrete patio, which gave very little privacy, right next to the neighbours, so not a relaxing place to sit and enjoy a glass of wine. I think an upper floor room would be a better option and would have asked for one. We went to the restaurant to eat, but they were too busy to take us, even though there were empty tables, so we walked into town. The location is great, close to everything, easy to walk across the bridge to town, and plenty of parking. Staff at reception very friendly.

Beds super comfy, spa shower really cool, staff super friendly and only a 5 minute walk into Nelson shopping area. Rooms are really clean and restaurant is right on the river. Only negatives would be no USB chargers in room.
