Great location - but

The hotel is in a great location being on the banks of the river just a short 10 min walk from the town centre.

During our stay the rooms were in the process of being upgraded. Why they didn't replace the baths for walk in showers is a mystery considering the amount of elderly visitors who use the hotel as part of coach trips etc. Staff were helpful and cheery and supplied us with a fan for our room as it was very hot and humid during our stay. The help yourself breakfast had a large choice of english breakfast fare with cerials, toast, breads and fruits on offer. The trays of scram egg,beans and bacon were replenished as needed and fried or poached eggs could be made fresh if required. Cannot fault the breakfast or wating staff. What lets this hotel down is the design of the ground floor. The first rooms start just through from reception where there is regular coming and going from staff and people heading to other rooms. Opposite the first few rooms are the toilets for people using the bar/lounge areas. Further round where the rooms over look the river, there is a balcony right next to and below a few rooms which is used by people having a drink and/or smoking while chatting. Anybody planning an early night better keep their windows closed to reduce the noise which can still be heard till the bar closes. The other rooms to the rear of the hotel do not fare any better on the ground floor. These rooms are right next the road- I am talking six feet away here. There is only a pavement separating you and you window from passing buses and cars etc which was quiet most of the night after around 11pm, started up again around 5-30 as people made their way to work. You could see peoples head and shoulders as they passed the window- not what I expected from a hotel in this price bracket. The finishing of paint and floor covering in our toilet could have been to a better standard with rusty bath handles spoiling the look too. Rooms were clean and fresh towels supplied daily. Coffee and tea facility's were on offer but the tv kept freezing up on several channels making viewing a waste of time. We had a pleasant visit and would use the hotel again only if it was through a cheap deal or special offer. It is not a £100 a night hotel by any means. and can only guess the location is the reason for the price point. Great location, great staff. great breakfast, rooms need a bit more work on the finishing of paint and fittings etc. The holes in the curtains mentioned in a previous post, are actually holes in the rubberised blackout backing on the curtains. When the curtains are closed it looks like holes where the light is able to shine through. Yep- would use the hotel again because of its location, but only if on special offer and offered a room above ground floor.
