The dining room and the Inn were beautifully decorated for Christmas. The beautiful live trees were amazing. We went for lunch and the food was excellent. Our server was pleasant and made sure we had everything wee needed. The antiques were all beautiful. We surely enjoyed our time there.

A friend of mine had been wanting to stay in this historic hotel for several years now, so for a birthday surprise, I reserved a room for us to experience it. The hotel was built back in the 1880's, and much of the decor reflects that. The rooms are very nice. They still have that "old" feeling to them despite... More

I was at the Riverside for a testimonial banquet, in the town where i went to college. The Riverside Inn is now 130 years old, and the place is fantastic. The rooms are quaint, and the antique furniture is amazing. The restaurant is really good. They have a free breakfast buffet for all guests who stay there, and the lunches... More

First time there and we loved this place. Don't go if you are looking for all the bells and whistles; it is a step back in time, a place to slow down and relax; a real Victoria Inn that was wonderful on all counts. No TV's in the rooms only in the spacious lobby along with puzzles and games, no... More

The Inn and grounds are beautiful. We were just there for lunch and did not stay at the Inn. The staff is wonderful. Our waitress told us she had been there for over 20 years and she also said most of the staff were long timers also. An experienced staff makes a huge difference on the level of service. Nice...

This hotel is beautiful! I've taken to family trips here first for the "Murder Mystery Dinner" & second on the "Mother Daughter Fashion Show Trip" We loved every second at this Inn. Workers are friendly and the atmosphere is breathtaking! Warning: this hotel does not have TVs, etc. it's charm is that it's old fashion. Enjoy the time together with... More

We stayed for 1 night, a wedding reception the next day. You'll need to appreciate old things, I do, so I think it's a unique and interesting experience. No TV except in the lobby -- I loved that. BEAUTIFUL setting, wonderful breakfast and brunch. Well located to a number of other places. Worth the price.

Lots of antiques and cool creaky floors. The mattress was a little hard for me, but the room was quaint. The dining room was very nice and the food was fantastic. Only tv is in downstairs sitting area. There is wi-fi available.

Truth is we love staying here when we are in the area as it is a lovely place. If you are expecting outstanding customer service though this is not the place to be. I stayed there more than once and I would love to go back but for me it is all about the atmosphere not the service. I love... More

We stayed At the Riverside for our 29th anniversary and were wowed at the relaxing and elegant experience. It is true that this is not the Hampton Inn but then THIS IS NOT THE HAMPTON INN. A great place to reflect and connect. Our dinner was superb and staff went out of their way to ensure quality. We ended our... More
