We booked the Gourmet package. Our meal offered subtle, well thought through and carefully presented delights on the plate. The wine was also thoughtfully chosen to balance and enhance the food combinations. With... More

Just returned from a 2 night Gourmet break. Food, wine and service excellent as it always is here(special mention to the venison and the banana soufflé which are my new favourites). I have been visiting the Carlton for six years now and do not intend to stop!

Alan and the staff were welcoming and friendly. The wine was generous and we felt spoilt. The only reason we have not given 5 points for excellence was the breakfast which was... More

We managed to get a last minute table at the Carlton Riverisde last night and I'm very glad we did! The food was absolutely fantastic. I can't find fault with any part of the meals my wife & chose. Very well presented, beautifully flavoursome and well cooked, what more can I say! The staff were friendly and accommodating, so thanks... More

Excellent welcome from Mary Ann and Alan, all staff were polite and efficient. The food was delicious including the breakfast - it is surprising that so many hotels are unable to cook a decent bacon and egg - but breakfast at The Carlton Riverside was cooked to perfection.

Nice food but service a bit slow - we were left nursing our pre dinner drinks for over 30 mins and wouldn't have minded a top up!
