Received a friendly welcome here. Rooms spacious, clean and well appointed (bottled water - still and sparkling a nice touch, tissues, hair dryer etc) and provided toothpaste when I realised I'd left mine behind. Hotel set on the edge of a narrow river so nice to sit out and look at the boats and watch the come up the river.... More

I have been a regular guest at the River Haven for many years and I am usually there for at least two nights, quite often every month. The hotel is very well managed, very clean and the staff are excellent, efficient and friendly. The breakfast is always good and the evening meal menu is wide-ranging and gives outstanding value. The... More

Two night break but not long enough! Lovely hotel, spotlessly clean, ultra-friendly staff who could not be more helpful. Everything you could possibly want. Food was gorgeous and very reasonably priced but just a bit too much on the plate. (Not a gripe, just a personal opinion). We would definitely stay there again.

We stayed here one night on our way home from France to meet up with a German friend who was on a walking holiday in Sussex. The location right beside the river is also close to the old town. Our room was comfortable with a view of the river. We had dinner in the restaurant. The food was tasty, plentiful... More

Good position and friendly staff. Hotel was very clean and the rooms were large and had everything you needed. Plenty of parking on site. Lovely position by the river with table and chairs to sit and watch the boats go by. When booking ask for a river view.

We spent a long w/e here with our walking club and we heard not a single complaint! Comfortable, clean rooms, welcoming & helpful staff, quiet hotel, plenty of parking, good food. One minor comment: some of the meal portions were too big, which can be offputting for those of us with smaller appetites! However, would highly recommend.

A group of 31 walkers stayed at this hotel for 3 nights recently and we cannot rate it highly enough. Linda and her team are a credit to the tourism industry. Nothing was too much trouble. They made us feel welcome and all our needs were attended to promptly and with a friendly smile. It is excellent value for money.... More

Stayed here for one night, due to our original hotel not having space on the friday evening for us. Staff were friendly, and hotel was clean and quiet. Rooms were basic, and a bit dated, but fine for a one night stay. The hotel is on the harbour wall, so a little bit of a walk to get in to... More
