They gave us complementary champagne and clean the room every day. Truly friendly staff. Love the location of the hotel it was near many of the things I wanted to see.

With the virus situation, the hotel insisted not to refund cancellation. Some may disagree they were merely following their rule and agreement made before payment was made. Some may argue in case of virus, an exception must have been made. You would know by now what I think. This review is merely the reflection of the virus situation. Nothing more, nothing less.

Great hotel in a really nice location. All of the staff were lovely and nice to deal with. We were lucky enough to have a bottle of Prosecco waiting for us on ice as we got in to the room! Both nights we went out for dinner, we would come back to the room being made up (after already being made up earlier in the day) with little chocolates on the bed and slippers at the end of the bed. Would definitely recommend staying here!

Beautiful hotel but spoilt slightly by the Goofy figurines everywhere. Room was lovely, clean with a great view of the river. Breakfast however was very poor. Surprised no toast maker??? Despite breakfast being included in our stay, we chose to not bother for the 2nd day.
