I should have put a review on sooner but to be honest I've really struggled with doing so! I'm not sure I want anyone else to know about this gem of a hotel, hidden away in beautiful Northumberland, a stones throw from the Scottish borders and Kielder. We stayed at The Riverdale with a lot of our family over Christmas,... More

Oh My. What a exceedingly difficult place to rate. This is a Hotel that really gets some things spot on, and simply neglects other things. If, like us, you're staying here due to a deal site, then it's important to know what you value in a stay and whether this hotel will match up to those expectations. First of all,... More

We stayed here for 2 nights between Christmas and New Year and were very impressed with the facilities, the staff and particularly with the food. The hotel was lovely and warm with open fires in the bar and restaurant, the room was spacious and had a balcony overlooking the river, the bathroom was slightly dated ( with a dark green... More

Fantastic food, friendly and helpful staff and a very lovely room with fantastic views over the river. A real bonus was the warm and pleasant swimming pool for when the weather was wet. Will definitely return, next time with our dogs as also discovered they have lovely dog friendly rooms 😀

This hotel is totally brilliant, the food exquisite and staff very friendly. Although my visit was just after Christmas, nothing was any trouble. The room over looking cricket pitch was simply ideal because we had taken a dog with us, there are not many places in the hotel where our dog was not welcome. Superb, will definitely return.

Booked a couple nights here last minute for a relaxing couple of days away. Easy to get to from the A68, and ideally situated for walkers and hikers. The food was lovely, and the hospitality second-to-none. The room was a fantastic size, with a good-sized en-suite with bath. The four-poster bed was very comfortable, and the only down-side to the... More
