Good Hotel Guide Review

It is as if a cruise liner had docked on the banks of Dorset’s Stour several years ago, to the sound of popping corks, and everyone liked it so much that they’d stayed. Robert Wilson and Tim Lloyd’s sleek hotel is a do-as-you-please, go-as-you-please operation, with moorings for guests who like messing about in boats. Watery light floods through floor-to-ceiling windows as you gaze out at an ever-changing riverscape. Accommodation is in ‘state rooms’, suites and family apartments with fully equipped kitchen. All have smart TV, espresso machine, contemporary decor. Grazing options include ‘light bites’ in the newly refurbished Quay bar and on the terrace (mini-fishcakes, sausage rolls, pakoras), any-time meals in the Club Lounge (fish and chips, burgers, risotto). At lunch and dinner, chef Andrew Gault uses ‘quality ingredients’ in extensive menus of such dishes as moules marinière, seafood linguine, bavette steak. After an ‘enjoyable’ breakfast, guests can relax in the spa or simply step ‘ashore’ and stroll to the historic walled city centre. In the afternoon, perhaps a boat trip to the Isle of Wight for a champagne tea. (LG)

Guest comments

'Our fourth visit; again we had a super time. A great welcome from reception, wishing my wife a happy birthday, and saying they would do all they could to make it special. They upgraded our room to a suite. This was fabulous, with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking river, hotel terrace and jetty. The furniture and fittings were of high quality, and everything worked! In the restaurant, the quality and presentation of the dishes were excellent; attentive service. Breakfasts were equally good (served until 10.30am) A great stay; high standards; great staff, accommodation, food, all in a lovely river setting. ' - Ian Malone - December, 2018
