Positive Reviews


Quality refurbishments with attractive decor.

The hotel décor has received an overwhelming amount of praise. Plenty of guests have complimented the new refurbishments, and have noted that the rooms are comfortable with pleasant decorations.


Friendly and welcoming staff.

Whether working in the hotel or in the restaurant, the staff are reported to be friendly and efficient. A large number of guests have praised the employees for their attention to detail and welcoming attitude.


Excellent riverside location.

The hotel’s location is faultless, with guests admiring the nearby marina. The riverside location offers a peaceful stay, yet is near enough to the town centre to explore the fishing village on foot.

Negative Reviews


Rooms sizes do vary.

A minor complaint held by some guests is that the room sizes do vary. A lot of rooms have been described as spacious, although some double rooms are reported to be on the small size with cramped bathrooms. If space is a concern, perhaps consider requesting something larger when booking.


Not always a room with a view.

Many rooms overlook the river, which is praised in a number of reviews. In other cases though, guests have noted that rooms at the back of the building overlook the courtyard, which is drab and uninspiring. Make a note when booking for views of the marina.


Warm rooms during the summer.

Beware that rooms may get hot during the summer months. A few guests have noted that the rooms heat up on sunny days and remain uncomfortably warm throughout the night.
