W. Couples - 12/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Having stayed at the hotel the previous year, the main problem at the time due to Covid was the poor breakfast offering, pleased to say this has now changed to a good breakfast offering. Room very good, one point the bed sheets were a bit small for the bed.

Good location.

Norman F. Friends - 11/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Booked two rooms one for myself and wife (delux) one for our friends. Beds on arrival looked unmade. We had stain on top sheet and mattresss protector. Had to to have bed completely changed. Restaurant would have been good if food lived up to your advertising. Very limited menu. Pizza un edable, chicken dry have had better food in cafe. Breakfast everything you require but cooking was terrible rubber eggs etc. Would look at who is doing the cooking only rate it as one star better at local cafe. Outside sitting area very good if it had been swept a least once while we were there and de weeded. Lack of mantainance. Staff helpful but shortage of staff at reception

Good stay

Ken T 11/09/2021 TripAdvisor review

We checked in for 4 nights, room was ready and COVID rules explained well by reception. Room was clean and well stocked at the rear of hotel overlooking the river and outdoor facilities. Choice of breakfast was good and fresh, we booked the same time each morning and had no issues at all. We booked time in the indoor swimming pool for 2 of the days, it was clean and well maintained. Towels were replaced by staff without any fuss. Staff throughout the stay were friendly and helpful.

Well located. Staff helpful and friendly

Great hotel a short. Walk along the fosse and then the Ouse to get to the City. Excellent parking, excellent rooms but of most importance excellent staff.

Whilst a decent hotel,problems occur in all hotels and it is how they solve them that makes a good hotel.Certain staff(in particular the front desk manager) need to improve their communication skills and product knowledge.Simple problem solving seemed outside her skill remit and interaction with the customer was defensive and in no way apologetic for the issues and the customer made to feel in the wrong for raising the issues in the first place..At the same time the female receptionist on duty could not have been more helpful

Great room

The reception, bar and restaurant staff all very nice, friendly and helpful. Lovely buffet breakfast, lots of choice and well cooked. The rooms were not serviced because of Covid, but alternative cleaning materials I.e, bleach and toilet brush should have been provided. The location of the hotel is about 15/20 minutes from the centre of the City with taxis and buses accessible for the infirm. Bar prices were,I found a tad on the expensive side. We had one main evening meal which was so so and expensive to boot. My choice of wine was not good, I had one glass in my room, couldn’t finish to and poured it away. (£20 bottle). All in all a pleasant place to stay for a break.

Pleasant location and happy staff

George P. W. Couples - 09/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

We thought that given the Covid precautions required the staff coped extremely well and made us feel very welcome. The river location is excellent and the available walks attractive. Even the adjacent flood protection works are interesting and non-threatening! Unsurprisingly dining menu limited but well cooked and cheerfully served. A very enjoyable week!

Pleasant stay

The room was ready when we arrived. All COVID related topics covered well by reception. Room was clean and well stocked. Breakfasts were booked by reception and no queues. Requested towel change which was done without fuss. Taxi arranged on checkout. Enjoyed stay.
