We stayed as part of a Wowcher deal in late January as a 21st birthday get away. We were reasonably impressed, underground parking and room was clean and bed comfortable. We did stay in January so didn't expect amazing weather, but the weather had effected the windows - condensation the entire stay so couldn't even see the river view we...

Thanks for your review and constructive comments. We are pleased you found us to be good value but are dismayed at your comments about our food.

Overall the hotel is brilliant. Me and my girlfriend stayed for two nights, bed and breakfast. And although the weather wasn't on our side the hotel made it a warm and welcoming stay. When it rained heavily they even offered us an umbrella for when we went out for dinner at night. Breakfast was great too, there were a lot...

We have just a lovely couple of days here. We were warmly welcomed by the lady in reception. The room was a good size and very comfortable. Lovely toiletries and towels. Just one little gripe - the room was very hot. We ate in the restaurant both nights and the food was excellent. The spa is small but the jacuzzi...

Some aspects of this hotel were really nice but others were not so good: 1. Nice big bed, but with duvet fitted wrong way round, easy to sort out though. 2. Nice bathroom but shower had temperature control knob missing making it hard to use. That should have been fixed as surely the cleaner would see this? 3. Excellent views...

We actually booked an Amazon offer at the Newby Bridge Hotel but on arrival there the hotel was closed; undergoing a major refurbishment.

We thank you for your review and stay. We are very sorry that your noisy neighbours impacted negatively upon your stay. We were, of course, unaware that they would be so noisy at the time of room allocation. We do have a night manager that can be contacted if guests need anything at all, but I'm sure the next time...

The location, staff and comfort of this hotel makes it an ideal stop on business. I would recommend it to anyone. The hotel has a Spa and pool which I did not use but looking lovely. The fact that free parking is a bonus, especially would be so in the holiday season.
