Very nice place with great staff!

Stayed away on business and enjoyed my one night stay. Welcomed with a smile and escorted to my room. Very nice room, I stayed in Helena. Very tired after my long drive and so had room service, fish n chips were excellent. Slept well and breakfast was very good...cooked to order, glad to see the Wivenhoe hasn't surrendered to the scourge of modern hotels 'the buffet breakfast'... Will be back! Tips: better signage for car park and reception and better pillows..
