              It was a lovely, clean room with friendly staff. I was able to check in before stipulated time. But was out all day so dud not really use the hotel at all except to sleep. Did not use any facilities.

              My only complaint and really a very important point for me. The pillows were absoluely terrible. The only thing I stayed for was to sleep as I was out all day and the one thing I didn't get to do comfortably was sleep! Very disappointing. Bed was firm and comfortable but pillows felt 50 years old! Hard and lumpy! It was very late at that point to complain!

              Great setting for the wedding, I did like the river such a beautiful setting. The beds are so comfortable, rooms are spacious and bathrooms are clean, lovely shower!. Never saw any mess left around, staff always clearing up and helping out. Excellent hotel.

              Mosquito's especially at night.

              Spacious bedrooms and very clean hotel in pleasant surroundings. Good breakfast and in a very convenient location for many attractions.

              When we asked to stay for a further night the cost was 50% more than the original night. so we went to another hotel.

              Excellent location and made to feel welcome by the receptionist. I was given a room over the (very noisy) kitchen fan and she changed the room without hesitation.

              The first room that I was given had a huge noise coming from somewhere and I traced it to the kitchen fan two floors down. It was so noisy that the room is completely uninhabitable, I imagine that the other rooms nearby are the same. The hotel says that it has "river views" from the rooms but it doesn't mention that those are the rooms over the kitchen fan! The receptionist said that she always had to move peple from those rooms. I booked a table for lunch and, for a while, I was the only person in the dining room. The waiter tried to put me at a tble where I couldn't look out of the window - there were no reserved tables, I checked - and only very reluctantly allowed me to choose my own table. I asked for a bottle of wine and he took ten minutes to bring it. I had to remind him twice but I was very obviously interrupting his conversation with someone in the kitchen.

              A real gem of a hotel. Staff were all incredibly friendly and helpful and the hotel is well appointed and nicely decorated. Room and bathroom were spotlessly clean and the restaurant by the river is a lovely spot for a meal - food was delicious.

              No complaints at all..apart from the very weak coffee at breakfast!

              The sevice of the personell was verry good!! Good beds and bathroom.

              The breakfast was verry poor. Ehen you ask for toast you get 4 small pieces for 2 persons... The rooms at one side of the hotel were verry noisy. (room 25) There was a AC unit or something making a lot of noise.

              v. Ordinary breakfast - not hot and and some items (eggs and sausages) rather tired!

              Very friendly helpful staff, lovely and clean and comfortable. Well positioned just outside Bedford but very easy into the centre.

              Would not especially recommend as a dining venue, dining room very nice with river view, staff friendly breakfast lovely, but evening meal not really quite as nice.

              My room was cancelled with less than 24 hrs. I attended a re union and the cancellation was aa disaster but was mitigated by a friend offering to share a room.

              I've stayed before and it's always nice and clean

              Reception was a bit fraught....only 1 lad on duty and a wedding party trying to book in
