    Nice location, nice shower, comfortable bed, quiet, breakfast was good, breakfast staff were excellent.

    No parking, a fair walk to Westgate car park, staff in the evening were disinterested, food expensive, sirloin steak poor quality, reception in the middle of the pub.

    Ambiance of room. View over river from dining room. Easy walk to town centre. Freshly cooked full English breakfast. Gorgeous salted caramel ice-cream! One scoop is never enough!!!
