We went to the Carlton riverside for a 2 night mini break. The hotel is small but has a great atmosphere and the service was second to none. Luke the chef and partner in the business is exceptional and treated us to a 5 course taster menu which was probably the best food we have ever had. The rooms are... More

My wife and I paid our fourth visit to the Carlton Riverside on Halloween weekend and were suprised to be greeted by Mystique! We were last to be seated for which Rosie (Mystique) apologised but it was fine as we were in no hurry and looking forward to a relaxing evening. The food and service were excellent and a couple...

We booked a second visit to this restaurant with rooms expecting a lovely weekend of food and wine within the peaceful location of mid Wales. On arrival Rosie (We heard that was her name as she did not introduce herself) arrived in slippers and started by saying the room that we had booked was mistakenly given to another couple. We...

Received a one night stay as a gift. We were a little apprehensive due to some of the previous reviews here on TripAdvisor. We were very warmly greeted on arrival by the young lady now running the place, and shown to our room. Yes the building is a little tired but the room was clean with a comfortable bed and... More

We stayed for one night with friends at the Carlton Riverside on their Gourmet Break package. The food could not be faulted, neither could the wines that came with each course. We were sat at the window table which afforded great views over the river. Nothing was too much trouble - my husband has to follow a gluten free diet... More

As Jeff M wrote previously the website is totally inaccurate and the place very disappointing. The Carlton Riverside is very tired, other than the restaurant. This appears to have had a face lift. My husband and I booked the 2 nights stay with a Buy a Gift voucher and were allowed to stay so long as we ate both nights... More

For a start the website is totally inaccurate and the place is living off past glories. It is dirty, tired and in need of a complete overhaul. The food is good but nothing special, the restaurant is dirty and service painfully slow. The bar was covered in dirty glasses, the entrance hall and lounge smelt stale and the young couple... More
