See What Our Guests Have to Say:
“The hotel is beautifully furnished and maintained to a very high standard. Our room was lovely and had spectacular views in two directions out over the river and jetty. The restaurant/bar are very unusual in that they front out into a quaint traditional building on the main street of the village. Some amazing original art works on display throughout the hotel are another notable feature of this establishment. The dinner we had at the restaurant was top class.”
“The bedroom was huge and beautifully decorated as was the spacious bathroom. We had dinner in the bar area as there was no service in the restaurant and it was good. This bar leads out to the original small bar called Lord Bagenal Inn on the Main St. If you entered this way you would certainly get a big surprise to see what lies ahead. Breakfast in the restaurant was excellent. “
“Myself and my partner stayed for one night at this beautiful hotel. I have to say the rooms were beautiful as well as the location. The river views from our room just made it extra special. Every member of staff we encountered was so lovely and helpful. It's a hidden gem I'm glad we found it. Well done Lord Bagenal keep up the exceptional work.”
