Another great stay at the Shard Riverside. Our third time there. Wonderful location, with great views of the river. A nice homely place, made to feel very welcome by all of the staff. Nothing is too much trouble for them. A nice evening meal in the restaurant with plenty of choice and a wonderful breakfast, all cooked to perfection. Congratulations... More

Room was big and despite the gale force wind and rain outside it was warm and cosy. Comfortable bed, good sized bathroom with a huge shower and spotlessly clean. We ate in the restaurant... More

We were able to get a late lunch with the choice of modest sized portions as we were going out for a fancy dinner. Good sized room and closet; good shower. The only down side... More

Room was large and pleasant. stayed in the roof bedroom which would not be suitable for anyone tall as the beams are low. This hotel would be lovely in the summer as it it right on the river and...
