Fantastic location, right on the walls and overlooking the river. Building is really quirky and full of character. Milk and bottled water provided in fridge on landing for guests. Room spacious and comfy. Wine glasses and bottle opener supplied in case needed. Breakfast delicious. Would definitely stay again.

Hubby and I stayed for one night as a little break for us . We found the hotel easily thanks to good directions e mailed when we booked.
