Stayed in the Waterside Hotel for three nights over the weekend. The hotel is clean, food is great and the staff are wonderful. They are always ready to help and nothing is too much bother for them. Looking forward to staying with them again next February. John & Isabel Scott

First time staying at this hotel, got the attic room with twin beds in one room and double in another lovely view from both rooms. Staff very friendly, went out there way to make your stay enjoyable, nothing was a problem to them. Lovely hearty breakfast. Will definitely stay again.

When we returned several hours later there had been a staff change and the young Australian lady was very helpful and friendly. We were moved into next door part... More
