We stayed in the Carlton Riverside last weekend and it was an amazing, relaxing break! We were in the 'Oriental' room which is spacious and bright, with tea and coffee facilities. Mary and Alan are both very friendly, and the food was delicious! We highly recommend the beef as it was so tasty! I would love to return to the... More

Mary-Ann is always present and Alan pours beautiful , well picked wines very generously. The food is non-pretentious, straightforwards, beautifully prepared, cooked and served. We did not send a...

This B&B is fairly basic and the rooms vary but the large room 1 has an excellent comfortable king size bed and en suite old fashioned bathroom with shower over bath and we were able to sleep well. Creaking floors are a mild irritant. There is good comfortable lounge space in the public area though again it lacks style. The... More

Saute potatoes were over cooked crisps and I've had better breaded fish in Wetherspoons.Was it because... More

We booked late, for one night, Saturday 20th June. Only one room left, (Irfon Room) which we were told was very small. It was small, but very comfortable and well equipped with a pretty view over the river and out towards the square. The bathroom was excellent with a full size bath and versatile shower. Dinner was just superb. Really... More
