A lovely place located right by the Irfon river. Lovely walks and spectacular scenery just a short drive away. Our hosts Mary Ann and Alan were a joy and made us feel so welcome. The food was outstanding and Alan was on hand with helpful advice about the wine.

We have just returned from a one night Gourmet Break using a gift voucher my husband received for his Birthday. What wonderful food, we were looking forward to tasting Mary-Ann's cooking and were not disappointed, for dinner only the best of ingredients were used, cooked to perfection. Alan was a very convivial host serving the best gin and tonic and... More

Mary Ann impressed us with her non pretentious approach to creating marvellous tasting food when she appeared on Great British Menu. We booked a gourmet break which included a very comfortable, well equipped, room, a customised 4 course menu with a flight of wines and full English breakfast. The meal was excellent with the highlights being the beetroot jelly, the... More

I must stress this review is for the hotel / B&B experience, not the restaurant dining (which was excellent). We'd booked their 'Gourmet break', which is dinner, bed and breakfast. No specific time was given for breakfast, other than Alan, the maitre d', saying "don't come down before 9.00". We came down some time after 9.00, to be told by... More

My partner and I visited the Carlton Riverside to stay and to eat in January after we received a gift voucher for Christmas. We had wanted to visit the Carlton Riverside for a while being big fans of 'Great British Menu' and having seen Mary-Ann compete on the show for 2 years - we had planned to go there ourselves...

We stayed in the Oriental room which is lovely. Nice and spacious, warm - but not too warm. The view isn't much to write home about but I don't often stare out of hotel bedroom windows! Alan and Mary Ann are wonderful hosts and make you feel welcome and wanted. They are pleased to give you information on things to... More

Leta start with the truth, would i go there again, probably not, but that's a reflection on me rather than the Carlton, its not cheap, your talking around £8 a starter and average for £25 a main course, £17 house wine, so for your working class "boyyo" its an expensive night out. But it was a cut above in terms... More

We arrived on a very cold January evening at dusk and were immediately made to feel at home by Mary-Ann and Alan. Our room (#3) was beautifully warm with extremely attractive furniture, decor and soft furnishings. The bar had a very good range of drinks and the lounge was again very warm and cosy. We were the only residents for... More

Mary ann and Alan were increadible hosts, both warm and welcoming. The food and wine selected for us on our gourmet break was well thought out and extremely well executed, Mary Ann is a master of her trade and it was an evening I look forward to repeating in the future. Room 4 is compact, comfortable and has everything you... More
