I arranged a surprise party to celebrate my parents' joint 80th birthdays this last weekend and I was not disappointed with the venue ; although originally there was some confusion as to where they were going to accommodate us for two hours (originally we wanted to be outside but couldn't predict the weather & there was also a wedding reception...

From the warm welcome to the cheery goodbye everything about our stay was warm friendly and welcoming. The bedroom was spotless, the bed very comfortable and the bathroom was deceptively spacious and spotlessly clean. The food was beautifully presented and very good portion sizes, and very tasty. All of the staff we met were friendly, warm and seemed very helpful.... More

Stayed for one night on the way to Newmarket Races. I totally disagree with the Pewterjuglady! We found the hotel and staff very inviting and welcoming. The hotel was very nicely decorated throughout with very tasteful furnishings etc. Although we didn't have an evening meal the restaurant catered very well for breakfast. The waitress definitely deserves a mention as she... More

My daughter had her wedding reception at the Riverside last week. It could not be faulted. The function room where the reception was held was light and looked out over the terrace and lawns, where there was plenty of tables and chairs outside for guests to go and sit after the meal, and seats beside the river and in the...

On arrival the ambiance looked inviting. Lots of cars and the outside terrace was full. Foyer looked stylish. That's where it ends. Had to interrupt the young receptionist to check in as she was having a chat with the restaurant manager. No apology or concern. Upstairs the room was acceptable although there were 'loom bands' under the bed in the... More

Ate here with a friend for lunch. Larger portions than I expected. Amazing food and staff was courteous and helpful. I will definitely be going back and will probably be getting the afternoon tea, which looked amazing.

The grounds were looking wonderful and very well cared for. All my family were delighted with their experience. At breakfast I complained that my eggs... More

During our recent vacation to England we decided that a traditional Afternoon Tea would be a British experience worthy of our precious time. Visiting the Riverside Hotel in Mildenhall Village, Suffolk was right on. We were looked after by the professional team. The course was a three-tier stand, which included wonderfully light scones and clotted cream, a variety of sandwiches,... More
