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

Don't be fooled by the pictures. Firstly the picture of the house is different. It's now All blue including the brickwork not a problem but not the house we were looking for.. The first thing we noticed as we walked in was the smell,.... one of neglect, dirt and fat from the kitchen.some of the chairs in the sitting room... More

We came here for my 20th birthday after obtaining a voucher for a two night stay with breakfasts, via a workplace reward scheme. The hotel is right in the centre of this lovely village and we were treated to a lovely view from 'Room 1' - a window to the right looked out to the river Irfon and the square,... More

Quirky guest house, adequate for a short break considering the price we paid. We had a small double room overlooking the river - nice view and it had a good sized ensuite with bath and over bath shower, and pleasant toiletries. Free wifi. Staff pleasant. Free parking in car park opposite. Good selection of cereals at breakfast with full cooked... More

Stayed recently on a mid-week overnight break, taking advantage of their incredible deal for overnight stay with dinner. We had a lovely welcome from Luke (chef/proprietor) when we arrived and he was especially welcoming to our 2 dogs, which was, much appreciated. He even gave us some left over lamb as a late night treat for them -the dogs definitely... More

Rosie is a treasure as she multi tasks from being a Receptionist to a Waitress - always with a smile 👍 This accommodation is not 5* yet perfect for the person looking for a good clean bedroom for the evening with great food after a fantastic day...

A one night stay and a very enjoyable experience. This is not a hotel but a restaurant with rooms. The building itself is old and could do with some modernisation. However, our room was large and spotlessly clean and had all the expected services - free WiFi, en-suite, cable TV. The bed was large and very comfortable. The evening meal... More

We booked the Carlton Riverside to make use of a voucher, it would appear most others staying there were also using their vouchers. The food was good but not gourmet as advertised, OK for one or two nights, but the menu was shortish and seemed to be unvarying. We didn't see anyone other than residents for the evening meal, so...
