I stayed here with a group of clients for two nights recently. The hotel was in a beautiful location right next to the Great Ouse. The room was a good size with a nice firm bed and everything working as it should. We were lucky with the weather and sitting outside with a drink watching the river go by was...

I stayed here for a week with work, along with a few colleagues. I was surprised at just how remote it seems, while it's not far out it feels like you're away from everything. The scenery's gorgeous and the rooms and the feel of the hotel's really cute. The rooms are nice and comfortable, good bathrooms, great shower, good appliances...

Our flowers were taken care of, we were taken to our table, waitress introduced herself to us as she presented the menus, and she presented us with 'Complimentary' glasses of Prosceco, and beautiful Happy Birthday cheesecake!! Overall, our dining experience was beautiful,...

Breakfast was good and because we were lucky enough to be invited to a wedding here we had a very nice meal which we both fully enjoyed. Only downside i would say was the fact...

This is a nice hotel in a nice spot alongside the river. I've used it for business on and off for almost two years and the standards are improving. Rooms are decent enough - clean and well presented and staff are friendly and engaging. Food used to be the problem - choice, speed and quality. On my most recent visit...

The staff were all very friendly and professional. The chef managed to cater for our vegan diet without any hassle. At breakfast there was plenty of fresh and dried fruit available to choose from besides porridge and toast etc. The dining room had a lovely view towards the river. Our room and bathroom were excellent. Both spotless and well decorated....
