Good Hotel Guide Review

Overlooking the historic quayside, this popular spot, ‘well used by locals’, is ‘just what one hopes for and expects from a hotel in a large town’. The owners, Anthony and Jeannette Goodrich, ‘have done a lovely job’ restoring the historic Georgian building, a former bank; the ‘sympathetically updated’ interiors are ‘imaginative, without losing a sense of the building’s character’. ‘Helpful, friendly’ staff set a ‘relaxed atmosphere’. Settle into one of the ‘comfortable’ bedrooms (some are smaller than others), each well stocked with books, magazines and home-made biscuits; a ‘memorable’ bathroom might have a freestanding claw-footed bath. There’s a choice of dining areas, inside and out; in all of them, chef Stuart Deuchars serves an ‘excellent’ modern brasserie menu that might include duck terrine, quince jelly, toasted sourdough; spatchcock poussin, vegetable couscous, crisp Parma ham. (Pub classics and wild-rice bowls cater to diners hungry for simpler fare.) On a fine evening, head for the riverside terrace, cocktail in hand, to watch the ‘glorious sunset’ over the Ouse. The Goodriches also own The Rose & Crown, Snettisham (see entry).
