Nice room/location.
Stay was good until it was time for breakfast. Took over 20 minutes to get a tea and only a couple of people there, so staff weren't exactly rushed off their feet. Ended up having to pay for breakfast elsewhere. Such a shame.

Beautiful location right on river Ouse. You can relax while watching Swans, Geese and Ducks swim pass. There were lots of boats too. Our twin room was a generous size, clean and tastefully decorated. We had lunch here which was excellent although a longer wait than desired. Breakfast was superb, but it was unclear what we could order, if we could have juice as well as coffee, or extra toast for example. Very Minor downsides were no chest of drawers in the room and we could have done with more hooks in the bathroom in addition to the one on the door. I would stay here again and recommend to others.
