Rustic but nice, good location.
Nice hotel next to river, room a bit small and was hot when we were there, but they found us a fan. Reception was very helpful. Caught boat just 5 mins away into bath town, and the bus back. All very convenient. Breakfast good. Parking available at the hotel. Overall good stay.

Great location
We love the area and the hotel was in a fantastic location. The restaurant staff were forever apologetic for forgetting things. The breakfast continental area of food was not topped up , especially if as we went to breakfast within an hour of finning it was nearly empty. The cleaning was not very through.

Top end hotel ideally located to explore Stratford
Welcoming hotel with friendly and efficient reception staff. We had a suite, which was well laid out with everything that you would expect. Ideally located for Stratford, just the other side of the river. Very reasonably priced parking, although it is a bit limited. The only slight criticism is that service during breakfast could be better. Yes it was a busy time of year, but when seated and your coffee and tea order is taken, you shouldn't have to chase this 2/3 times. Buffet breakfast items, cereal, bread, yoghurts etc had to be chased to be replenished. That being said the food was excellent and piping hot. This happened on both of the mornings of our stay, otherwise I wouldn't have mentioned it.

It was comfortable with free parking . But the walkway to town was really dark and damp!
