Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities
A nice Inn at a nice location, with its own pub so food is easily accessible. Parking was on-site and free. The room description said that the Queen room had river view, NOT TRUE! We had the view of a roof platform with another room's air conditioning blowing. The other downside is that the room was very dark and needed lights on in the day time, but this was probably because of where the room was facing.

Beautiful room and had everything we needed. Unfortunately we were above the pub which meant the noise/music from the pub speakers can be heard in the room. Also the walls were fairly thin so we heard our neighbors in the room next door.
