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).

Guest comments

'Our room, The Captain's Room, was one of the biggest we've ever stayed in, one of their most expensive, but at £140 for B&B for two reasonably priced. It had a large, comfortable bed, large sofa, digital TV, desk with chair, views over the river, two built-in wardrobes. The huge bathroom (with large roll-top bath plus shower) was excellent except there was nothing to hold on to when getting out. The owners have done an interesting rescue job, retaining original features but providing every facility we could need. Lovely scones with tea. The evening meal was excellent, with efficient and friendly service. Breakfast also very good. ' - Robert and Shirley Lyne - August, 0210
