Beautiful view on the river, real good value for money. Rooms were clean and staff friendly. International trainees did a good job - the bar personnel could possibly learn a little bit of the products as they did not know what Tab was, explained it...More

Only disappointment was that all photos showed river facing room views but was in a back room overlooking a house, "due to front rooms being more expensive". Breakfast service was outsandingly courteous.
