Very good accommodations - spacious, clean and comfortable - and impeccable service - everyone was very friendly and attentive. Delicious food options, especially breakfast! Prime location with a wonderful view of the city, that's cute!

We have just stayed at the Riverside for two nights and it was excellent. We arrived early afternoon and were shown straight up to our room which was lovely. A nice large bedroom and bathroom, with cornish tea, coffee and biscuits and Wifi. All the staff are so friendly and welcoming. The breakfast is excellent and nothing seems to be... More

Visited this in the first week of January. Sat in a cosy corner at a table for two. Was very busy and were told we may have a 20 minute wait for food, but food arrived quicker. We were only there for a light lunch, and very impressed with their sandwich and soup deal that cost £8 each. This is... More

Booked a room here last minute for the day after Boxing Day. Room was clean although a little on the smallish side. However, it had all the amenities required, the staff we very helpful and polite and the breakfast was great. The price was very good so all in all it was great value.

The Riverside is a very nice cosy hotel, with beautiful rooms. Everything was very clean. We stayed for a week and enjoyed every moment. Breakfasts come in many choices and we loved them. You should also eat in the restaurant of the hotel, the food is excellent! But most of all we loved the friendly staff. The Happy Belgians

We stayed in room 10 a large family room & it was perfect. The river flowed beneath our window. The sound we found to be very therapeutic. Ross and all the staff could not have been more helpful. Hospitality is excellent. Food is really good & plentiful. We visit many places & stay in lots of hotels yet nothing beats... More

Friendly staff, warm hotel, easy access WiFi and proper wooden hangers (rather than those wire or plastic things) And yes, there is a babbling brook outside and becasue of all the rain it doubled in size overnight. Yes it was a bit noisy from the water with the window open but what do you expect from a place called the... More

Our second stay at The Riverside used as a base for walking the South West Coastal Path. Wonderful facilities, excellent staff. We were very well looked after and enjoyed our stay immensely. Very nice stay with good food. Very enjoyable weekend, even if this time the weather was not so kind.
