Fabulous 8.6 From 433 reviews

Very good 8.0
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.
