Have just returned from yet another impressive visit. Stayed here over 3 years ago so didnt hesitate to re book when my boss asked me to book a business stay in the area. On my £60 bb budget it ticked all the boxes. The staff here are so friendly and extremely attentive. After a smooth check in i was given... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights and were made to feel so welcome, as if we were part of their family. Andrew and his team took care of our every need. We had breakfast and dinner on both days and all 4 meals were fantastic and the dinners were fantastic value for money. We are now considering staying... More

I went to... More

We stayed for a family wedding for one night. The lead up to the hotel is really odd, as it feels as though you it is at the end of a residential cul-de-sac, but the location by the river is beautiful. The room was comfortable enough, although showed signs of wear and tear and the TV didn't work. The bathroom... More

We stayed at the Riverside for two nights last weekend. The staff are, without exception, very friendly and welcoming. However, the hotel needs a complete refurbishment. The decor is tired and outdated and extremely shabby. The location on the riverside could be wonderful but the patio needs a good clean with a pressure washer, the plants in the pots have... More

We have just returned from two nights at the Riverside Inn. We stayed in Room 5 which was a little on the small side and the bathroom was very small but overall the room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. The hotel has a lovely garden backing on to the river and we enjoyed a couple of walks... More

Me and my boyfriend stayed in this hotel for 4 night (we were visiting family, we are from Belgium). We stayed in room 18 and the room wasn't very good. First of all, it looked very small and outdated. In the bathroom there was no room to put my toiletries. Also, the shower head didn't give us warm water. The... More

Stayed one night at this hotel, booked it basically for the price. As previous writers have said the bedroom (3) was small, the bathroom was quite odd anyone of any size would find the loo a squeeze. Poorly insulated heard all the noise from adjoining rooms and the smokers stood outside the entrance until the early hours. Breakfast was OK.... More
