Excellent hotel in beautiful setting directly on the river, friendly staff, friendly Maharaja owner. Stay a few days. Take a bike ride in to town to see the sights (Hotel can arrange). Make sure you get a riverside room.

Good, as ...
... he looked at me and said "water heater?", he also had never seen a kettle. I was so happy he had fixed my kettle I probably drastically overpaid giving him a pound but that's a 5th of the price of the kettle. I have to say the kettle was the highlight of my day.

Being that its 20p per hour I'm ...
