We stayed with our two boys in a family room. The boys shared a pull out sofa bed and we had a double. There was plenty of space in the room, it was very clean and fresh and the view of the river was lovely. We had a very tasty breakfast and the staff were all very friendly. The hotel... More

We stayed at this hotel whilst attending a friends 50th. We wanted to be a little way out of Blackpool but close enough to have a look round and then retreat to a little peace and quiet! Our room was a family room as we wanted a river view and was very spacious, clean and extremely well maintained. Sadly we... More

The standard of the rooms is excellent and I had a fantastic view of the water and bridge. The food was of a very high quality and reasonable priced, all the staff were smiling and friendly and...

I stayed at the Shard Riverside with three friends for one night as we attended a funeral nearby. We ate in the restaurant in the evening and were delighted with both the service and the quality of the food. The same was true of breakfast the following morning. Our rooms were clean and comfortable with lovely views over the river... More

My wife and I recently stayed at the Shard Riverside Hotel, we were joined in the evening by my son and daughter in law and dined in the hotel restaurant. We couldn't praise the hotel or restaurant highly enough, from the easy manner in which we checked in, to a very pleasant pre-dinner drink on their patio area overlooking the... More

Great location and good staff - front of house. Long delay before orders being taken because there had been a large group being served. I can accept this as the kitchen timings with large groups causes delays. Ordered 4 meals: 3 x Roast beef diners - £6 minutes to be served at the table. Thee were substantial and well-presented.

We did not tick all the boxes on this occasion. You quite refreshingly acknowledge the waiting time and clearly appreciate that all food is freshly prepared and cooked and hence service times can lengthen. My apologies for the dish you received. The matter was discussed with our chefs and I can assure you that the roast used was not from... More
