I looked up hotels in the Nottingham area and this riverside hotel appealed to me. We had quite a spacious room with a view of the river. The food was the usual Marston's pub grub but reasonably priced and cooked by a chef who added his or her own personal touches. The management and staff were very friendly and I...

We stayed here, never having visited before, although the staff were busy( first sunny day and it's on a river) they were lovely, this room was beautiful, bed really comfy, we would apologise to any rooms below us though as the floorboards are quite creaky. Assistant manager was really pleasant, I wish he was mine!

We stayed here after a recent refurbishment and before the hotel reopened properly and we had a great stay. Everyone from the management to the bar staff to the waiters and the food runners were delightful. The room was lovely and quirky and the bed extremely comfortable.
