Birthday weekend.
Brilliant hotel, very friendly staff. Breakfast was perfect - though they will do a breakfast to your taste if you want to pay. The free one is quite a comprehensive buffet. Quiet hotel, except for the daily 0730 bin lorry so ask for a room at the back. One street back from the river, perfect location. Only improvement would be a bar - perhaps an honesty bar so that someone didnt have to serve. But somewhere to get a drink is always welcome. However, the mini bar in the room is reasonable and reception were happy to get ice. Wpuld stay here again in a heartbeat.
