    We took the opportunity to have beauty treatements on the Friday afternoon, after we had arrived and the service and treatments were fantastic! We decided to have room service on the first night, complete with delicious red Italian wine.We also had full breakfast delivered to our room the folloiwng day, and enjoyed time in the leisure spa during the afternoon. All in all it was a wonderful relaxing break.

    Very good

    Used en-route stop over driving to Scotland very convenient for motorway.

    Impersonal and characterless public areas. Buffet breakfast adequate; no better than the typical British hotel buffet. WiFi by third party supplier not value for money.

    Location

    Very poor house services, I.E. everything apart from towels was missing on arrival. We found we could not use the shower safely prior to about 9am, the water was far too hot; this became controlable after the heavy demand period. During our stay there was a fire alarm (false), all guests moved out ok, but there was no information. Two staff members were trying to check off the guests, they did not have a pen. One tried to speak via a loudhailer, the batteries were flat. The scene was one of total lack of training and poor fire management; the hotel got away with it this time. Not a good customer experience.

    For the price of the rooms the facilities were at the level of a more exclusive hotel. The rooms were spacious, modern and very clean.

    Perfect

    The close proximity to the river, plenty of walks and walking distance to the town centre. The staff were very helpful and the room was lovely. Ww made good use of the excellent leisure facilities. We would definitely like to go back.

    Location - close to motorway and close to city. Easy website to understand and navigate. Good standard of accomodation for a reasonable room rate.

    Big cost difference in room rate between Friday and Saturday. Seemed to be a problem providing sufficient items (e.g. bacon and white bread) at breakfast time, causing delyas and queues.

    Perfect

    This hotel was spacious, clean and friendly. The room was very clean, and spacious.

    The price of the breakfast, my daughter and I didn't have full breakfast, just cereal and toast, and while I appreciate it's difficult when it is busy it proved a rather expensive breakfast 25.00 for 2 bowls of cereal and toast and tea.

    Level of lighting in room was so poor I needed a torch to rewad!

    Nice

    Very good breakfast, cooked to order and a wide selection. Large room. Quite a nice looking hotel inside, and adjacent to the river.

    Our 'double' bed was unusually the narrowest we have ever tried sleeping on. Didn't get a good nights sleep due to lack of room in the bed. Also, it was £15 just to access the wifi - very overpriced! The reception staff were not in a hurry to serve us, which was frustrating.
