One hour and twenty minutes from London, this felt a world away. So relaxed, and SUPER friendly to our two year old with the delightful addition of a dolls house in addition to all of our practical needs to our room for her. A very Full English Breakfast In the Breakfast room/Conservatory, and Judy gave us some great ideas around... More

Stayed a night here whilst walking the South Downs Way, for which it is ideal and thoroughly recommended. Richard and Judy are friendly, helpful and thoughtful hosts who are concerned to make sure your stay is perfect. Breakfast has plenty of choice, and is sourced from local ingredients - delicious. The rooms have en suite bathrooms and are spacious, well... More

Richard (the owner) couldn't have been kinder; he was a wonderful host and also helped me plan my walks and even gave me maps to take with me. He also makes delicious breakfasts! My room looked out onto fields and was bright, airy and spacious. Riverdale is a paradise that I look forward to visiting again.

We had a great stay at the Riverdale House. Richard and Judy gave us a warm welcome on arrival, and kindly arranged a booking in an excellent gastro pub nearby. The room (Heselwood Suite) was perfect for the 4 of us, with very comfortable beds. The room exceeded our expectations in many ways. The amenities included bottles of water for... More

This was first trip abroad and Riverdale House was my first stop on my trip. It was everything I could have hoped for and more. I would love to go back and spend my entire vacation there! Perfect and I can't wait to travel back there someday!

The room itself was spotless, bathroom very nice with a big bath and constant hot water. Breakfast was delicious. The owners - Richard and Judy were amazing hosts-very helpful and lovely. The B&B is only... More

We had a wonderful long weekend in the south downs based at Riverdale House. We round Richard to be very helpful and willing to go the extra mile without being asked. The location is good as it is very quiet, right on the South Downs way but you can still get into Alfriston. Rooms were clean, big enough and had... More

Enjoyed a lovely stay at Riverdale. Our room was clean, comfortable and well equipped. Bed very comfortable and room nicely furnished. Great choice of breakfast and cooked well. Richard and Judy are very good hosts. We were welcomed on arrival and given lots of useful information about the village and surrounding area. Quant old village with superb pubs.

We needed some where to stay at the last minute and Richard was very accommodating dealing with our booking over the phone. The B&B was very comfortable - wonderful sheets, bed and towels. All very clean and nothing was too much trouble. Really friendly and welcoming couple. Would definitely recommend.
