"Feels like it's resting on its laurels a bit. Charging for soft drinks etc... a bit unnecessary (just up the price to accommodate that if needed). Guide on first afternoon there was lousy. Drove like my grandmother and she's been dead for a while now!
We saw a couple of other places from the river and one from inside and all looked more appealing. Food decidedly average."

"A lovely place which I really enjoyed. Lovely soft beds and excellent staff and a superb situation overlooking the river. "
