We were very happy with the room. It was clean and very well presented. It had obviously been recently renovated and everything felt new and fresh. Even though our room overlooked the car park, there was little traffic noise through the night. The hotel grounds are immaculate and allow a lovely view of the marina and river scenery. We could...

After breakfast which was filling, it was very hard to get up and leave after a nice relaxing seat on the balcony again overlooking the river and pool area.

Loved our marina view upstairs room and all the activity on the water, which made our night extra relaxing. Room size was comfortable and the King bed divine.

I very much enjoyed a two night stay. My room was spacious, comfortable, well appointed with a great outdoor nook for a cup of tea. I found the view from my room to the marina incredibly relaxing. Staff were friendly and helpful and I would be pleased to recommend Sails to family and friends.
