I stayed at the Captain's Club for 3 nights for work. The hotel has a simple but very smart reception area and the rooms are absolutely wonderful; I was lucky enough to have a river view. The lighting in the room is very strange and I never felt like there was enough to make the room truly bright - but...

King Prawns to share were sublime. Fillet steak was cooked to perfection. Cappuccino was exquisite if lacking something to go with it like a chocolate or Biscotti. The ambience in the restaurant was fantastic and last but far from least the service was 2nd to none that I have experienced. Lovely meal and highly recommended.

This hotel is a disgrace when it comes to housekeeping! We arrived Tuesday night, checked in to suite 205. The carpets and sofas were filthy and stained - you would not want to walk barefoot. We moved to suit 210, which had some stains on the carpet and sofas were again disgusting and stained - we used our dog blanket...
