4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and value for money wise I couldn't fault it. Excellent breakfast with alot of choices, good evening menu, pleasant and helpful staff and a clean room with tea/coffee. My only complaint was the tiny bathroom and having to reverse into the toilet beside the bath. This would however not stop me staying... More

Didn't have much time in the hotel but what time I did have here was lovely. Staff were attentive, food was lovely and great value for money. Room service was very reasonably priced and food was brought very promptly. Bathroom was a little small but that was the only down point. Would happily stay here again if I was looking... More

I stay at the Riverside fairly often and love the ambience and location of the place, and as such thought I would take my children and my sister there for a couple of nights. During my last stay I enquired about availability for the time we wanted to visit and was told only a couple of rooms were booked and... More

We booked for a valentines night treat and was a bit unsure after reading some bad reviews, shouldn't have worried. We were greeted on arrival by a very friendly and helpful receptionist. Only negative thing she told us was that as ours was only the room (room 24 a superior room) actually inside bar/hotel area, the doors were locked at... More

Unfortunately this was not a good hotel. Another Old English Inn in need of refurbishment. The bed was a tiny double (possibly only 4' 6") and not big enough for the two of us, it was also uncomfortable which resulted in 2 nights of no sleep. The bathroom was so tiny that you had to walk backwards along the side... More

Old world charm in a converted farm house. Views of the river, roaring fires and friendly staff. No pressure to eat or drink with a very relaxed atmosphere. Staff were helpful not pushy. Traditional food and something fancier if you wished. All great value for money with special offers. Good selection if drinks. One if the mist pleasant afternoons I... More

Stayed here for one night with the dogs. Nice pub, drinks good, food poor quality and small portions for breakfast. Good value for money though at £45. Great location for walks down the river Rooms very tiny but clean and comfortable. Would stay again but not eat here.

I stayed here this weekend. The rooms are dated but very clean and comfortable. The staff were friendly. A good variety at breakfast and is included in the price of the room. The Bar food was very nice and again reasonably priced. The location is lovely right on the riverbank. I will definitely be coming back in the summer. Excellent... More
