Title says it all and those poor ratings are well out of date. I arrived at the station a few weeks back with a student looking for a cheap room. We walked across and were impressed by the decor and friendly staff. Booking was easy with my card. Room spotless and TV with free view.I'm very fussy but I'm lunching... More

I popped in with the Mrs. for a bit of Sunday lunch before catching the train from the station opposite. We had two very delicious and good value for money roast dinners. Nice selection of beers too so we were very pleased with our orders. Pub was newly decorated and looked very nice. Very comfortable settings and good number of... More

We were five to stay there for three nights in one double ensuite room, one double room and one single room. Bear in mind that not all room have ensuite, so be careful when you book if you don't want to share. The pub is nice, it's been completely renovated, the food is good and the staff are nice. It's...

Absolutely terrible experience! I booked this hotel a month ago through trivago. I knew we would be late due to flights so I rang the hotel and told them we wouldnt arrive till between 12 and 1 that night. She told us that would be no problem and someone would be there to let us in when we'd arrive. We... More

Stopped for a drink here last Saturday and decided to eat. The pub has had a recent makeover and is so different to what it used to be. All of the staff were polite, friendly and very efficient. The food we had was very good and very reasonably priced. The menu was varied and had plenty of choice. We will... More

A cheap and easy place to have some food and drink. Stopped in when i was in the area with work. Staff are polite and the food and drink is cheap. We didn't have much time to explore so not sure where else there is to eat in the area.

Upon arrival I was greeted with a friendly smile and shown to our room. It was basic but clean. There isn't much to say apart from it was cheap and you shouldn't expect too much since it didn't cost that much. The bathroom could do with a bit of a fix up but everything worked and since we were out... More

I stayed in the riverside on a week night for work, after reading terrible reviews about the place I was a little worried about what may lay before me. Upon arrival I was pleasantly surprised, the pub below was quiet with not many people in...not enough in fact. I was checked in quickly and shown to my room (14), clean,... More

Stayed for 2 nights, never again. The description of this hotel is very misleading, refurbishment a figure of their imagination. Good location was the only positive thing about it. No breakfast or evening meal although had booked b & b, restaurant was closed and reading reviews looks like had been closed for some time not just prior to our stay... More

The appearance of a third world bomb site greets you as you pull into the car park at the rear of the Hotel (pub). The staff were pleasant enough on arrival but the cash machine was broken. So it is cash on arrival, Why? Because once you see the room you ain't gona want to pay, so check your room... More
