        I thought it was well located

        I thought it was overpriced for what's basically a pub with rooms

      • Older travelers
        7.8

        an enjoyable stay, friendly staff, excellant breakfast, very good value for money.

        parking was limited, but i had booked a space so did not really have a problem

        Friendly, the River view, our room (Christopher Wren), great restaurant and good service.

        Very creaky floorboards, room not very warm although better when Ben gave us a heater, the weather (not your fault!).
