    The home feel in the hotel.

    The hotel has been beautifully appointed, offering great comfort and style. It is quiet whilst being in a superb city centre location. Finding it by road was not easy and a better map on your website would be helpful. We were given a very friendly welcome by Bronwin who looked after us superbly during our entire stay. He should be highly commended on his professionalism and his devotion to delivering the best possible guest experience. The garden and pool area offer an extremely pleasant environment in which to relax in the sun. I have already recommended Dock House to several friends and know that they will not be disappointed.

    There is only one thing which I disliked about our room (No.1) is that I find beds with an end board at the foot of the bed uncomfortable to sleep in as I am unable to stretch out fully

    The historic architecture; luxurious rooms and bathroom; intimate garden and pool area ; the peacefulness despite the close proximity to the waterfront and the complimentary champagne on arrival to drink on the balcony

    The cooked breakfast on the first day was poor ( sausage and bacon almost raw) so we ate at the v&a the second morning. However the breakfast on the third day was excellent. We loved our room but if you had a downstairs room without a balcony, I think it would be less enjoyable and private, especially with guets coming and going to the Waterfront through the dining room
