The staff were training, so everyone was still learning the new set up and everyone from the management to the bar staff to the waiters and the food runners were delightful. The room was lovely.

A very nice stay for Christmas day and a very nice breakfast by the Trent! I will be back because your staff were so friendly but maybe I could have a room over looking the river? My room was really clean (if the shower was a bit small) But all in all a great visit,as I said at the start,...

Spent a night in this hotel for one night as a stop over and we were very impressed with our stay. The price was very reasonable. The room was adequate, very clean and warm. The breakfast was a bonus again, considering the price. Loved the location opposite the river, would be extra special during the summer. Car park huge. Restaurant...

We went to this venue on Christmas Day for lunch and had a wonderful time. The staff were all friendly and cheerful and there was a lovely warm atmosphere. The food and drinks were very good too, and there was a surprise visit from Santa Claus. We will definitely go back there.
