    This is a very good place to stay. The booking process was very quick and all the details are dealt with. It is a very welcoming place and the staff are very friendly and welcoming.

    The bathroom was missing a mirror for shaving purposes, although there are plenty of mirrors, it is the process! Parking is not great.

    The location is excellent, right on the river. The building has real Victorian class, with nice old-fashioned (in the best sense) bar/lounge/restaurant area. The evening meal in the restaurant was very good, with good service.

    The running of the hotel side of the business seemed amateurish. I had to request that the heating in the room be turned on, because this could only be done remotely. But the main problem was that the "hot" water for bath and shower was cold - stone cold, so this did not look as though it was a problem that had just occurred. Talking to other guests, other rooms had the same problem. I was therefore unable to wash or shower or bath during my stay. To be fair to the management, they did knock some money off the price of my evening meal as some compensation for this inconvenience. Service during breakfast was also rather amateurish. I would like to have been able to give this hotel a higher rating but unfortunately one has to score an establishment on how one found it rather than how it could (easily) have been.
