I am a disabled traveller and found there were some accessibility issues in respect to the room facilities. At the point of booking I contacted the Hotel direct to explain in more detail our requirements. I had to pay an extra premium for a larger room which we initially

Good afternoon Jane, thank you for your feedback. We do apologise for the initial confusion with the room, however we are very glad that it was resolved so quickly. We are also sorry to hear that our room was not 100% suitable for you. Although these rooms are "accessible" we do not advertise them to be fully disabled friendly, but we apologise if this was not made clear when booking. We have had many wheelchair users use these rooms who have not mentioned these issues however we will be sure to clearly state the room features if anyone does enquire about needing a fully accessible room, so as to avoid this happening again in future. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your breakfast and that you found our staff to be so friendly. We look forward to welcoming you back again soon.

Booked the function room for a birthday party spanning nine decades of participants. Hotel staff were helpful in arranging the room and catering for individual needs and also allowed us to get in early and decorate the room for the birthday 'boy'. Hotel looks a bit bland from

Good afternoon Gavin, thank you for your feedback. We are very sorry to hear that your stay was not satisfactory. However we have looked into your booking and spoken to the staff members involved and unfortunately you did indeed book a standard Riverside Double. We do not allocate the rooms when they are booked online, the rooms are allocated automatically by the system, according to the category of room booked. The General Manager did show you your booking confirmation, which stated a standard Riverside Double, upon check out. If you would like to stay with us again in future please contact us directly and we will make sure that you are looked after.
