We spent 3 nights at the Riverside Inn. I love the location right on the Great River Ouse. We stayed in the honeymoon suite only because it was the only room with a queen size bed. The furnishings were lovely, the bathroom was huge with plenty of vanity space. The shower was a little high and hard to get in... More

I stayed here with my two sisters, who had travelled over from Dublin for the weekend. I found the Riverside Inn via TripAdvisor, which can be dubious at times in it's ratings, so I was reserving judgement. All aspects of the stay were fantastic. Beautifully decorated rooms, luxurious touches throughout. Breakfast was sumptuous, with plenty of choice. We had a... More

Well, we'll not be going there then. My wife rang tonight to try and book a room for one night in June. She was informed that the room would be £129 not as stated in the web site but that they could not do breakfast so would offer a discount. Further questioning revealed that they would not be able to... More

We stayed here for two nights in the honeymoon suite to get away from the world. Can only say that this is the best B&B I have ever visited. We couldn't believe how nice it was. The decor and attention to detail is second to none. Views and location is excellent and a lovely breakfast in the morning. Owner very... More

I stayed at the Riverside Inn on a work trip. I couldn't fault it in any way - the quality of the room was perfect: beautiful bed linen, quality furniture, very comfortable bed, peaceful, modern bathroom and just lovely touches everywhere. The lady that served me throughout was extremely helpful and made me feel very welcome. Breakfast was stunning -... More

Very comfortable indeed. A lovely breakfast with a fantastic view of the river and it's activity. Our hostess was very helpful and the service was excellent. Close to all amenities and a pleasant walk both in to town and around the guest house

We stayed two nights at the Riverside. The owner was so helpful sorting out parking for us and very welcoming on arrival, without being intrusive. The room was furnished with high quality furniture, the bed linen was lovely, and the room was extremely comfortable. The bathroom was a good size with a bath and shower over the top. There was...

This is a lovely old home, situated in a pretty spot on the river. It’s very convenient to the train, and a pleasant walk to the cathedral or along the river. The room and bathroom are spacious and filled with little extras to make your stay more comfortable. Breakfast includes excellent espresso-based coffees handmade by Lily. We arranged in advance...
