8/10 Very good

A Curate's Egg - Good in Parts
I was allocated a very comfortable room with a small outside patio area accessed through the patio doors. Bed was very comfortable and room was very clean, as was the rest of the hotel. The electric shower took a bit of experimenting with to get the flow and temperature right. There was no desk to work at and so had to make do with a small occassional table. Bedroom walls are paper thin, so hope you don't have noisy neighbours! There was no wardrobe in the room, only a hanging rack, which wasn't a problem for me as I was only staying one night, but may be an issue if you are staying longer. If would seem the staff were new and could do with a bit of additional training. Resturant menu was limited but the food good and portions large. Dining room itself is not particularly welcoming being rather bare, and sparsely furnished, more like a canteen. Breakfast was excellent.

Overnight stay.
Lovely hotel in a beautiful location. Was very short staffed when we stayed, same person dealing with orders, serving, reception, bar etc. Hotel was not full so it was not a big issue. Meals were excellent so overall enjoyed our night.

Great stay in a stunning location
Great stay in a comfortable hotel. Excellent service. Hotel was quiet but that was to be expected in COVID times. Lovely relaxing stay. Superb scenery and even a little dip in the river.

2/10 Poor

We booked a king room for this hotel and got the tiniest room I’ve ever seen and a normal double bed 1 pillow each and we had to share towels only 1 of each the food in the restaurant was poor quality and the breakfast was disgusting dried up food and the beans looked like they’d been reheated a few time’s When i asked to see the manager i was told he’s not here there was about 4 young girl’s doing everything and they told me they couldn’t do anything about my complaint!! I am not one for complaining but i advise anyone to avoid this hotel
