A pleasant enough hotel
Pleasant enough hotel, currently undergoing some refurbishments which must be difficult after COVID. Disabled parking is free and there are two parking spaces right outside the front doors. Reception staff are business like but still friendly and the staff in the restaurant couldn't do enough for us. We had a snack on arrival which was tasty and went there for our first night meal, I don't understand other reviews as both meals were of a really good standard. Good breakfast selection with omelettes and fried eggs made to order, lots of warm and cold dishes available from the buffet as well as a good selection of pastries and breads. Didn't understand the need to queue for coffee as there's two machines, one of which very few people use.

10/10 Exceptional

The location is great: in a quiet area, yet right next to the river and within 15 minutes walking distance from the center and all the bars and cafes. The shared spaces are comfy, spacious, and clean. We travelled with a one-year-old and we always felt welcome, while the baby also had lots of areas where he could ramble around.
