Very good 8.0
Good value
Very good value for money. Good location, just 10 minute stroll to city centre, free parking. Only gripe was bins & bottles being emptied 7.30 onwards on Friday morning - right outside our room, extremely loud

An absolute gem
This was an absolute find. Lovely setting by the river within walking distance of all the sights. Hop on hop off bus stop 5 minutes walk. The rooms were beautifully designed with rowing and boating themes. Very helpful and friendly staff and obviously popular with visitors and locals alike.

Perfect Location - Not perfect room
We booked same day as a last minute trip over bank holiday and didn’t realise until we arrive it was a disabled access room with the bathroom changed to be accessible and shower quote low for a wheel chair. The room had no air con so was far too hot and the fan in the room sounded like a helicopter about to take off so didn’t sleep a wink. We also realised the next morning when questioning why there were no windows that number 2 did in fact have a window but the latch had fully snapped off so anyone could have accessed our room. We must have been next to a staff area as well as in the morning when we were trying to let some air in there was no privacy with staff walking back and forth. Breakfast - we were first in there due to not sleeping and a couple after us were given our breakfast so we was left quite a while waiting for food. Other than this the location is prefect on a summers day we would just never stay in the same room again & when discussing this on our departure there didn’t seem to be much sympathy at all for our overall experience.
