Everything was perfect. Our guests loved the food and the venue was perfect. Staff are all so polite and helpful. The resident dj was awesome and so much fun. The bridal suite was a little bit small but still lovely. The bathroom is as big as the bedroom which was cool. The only disadvantage was the bridal suite was separate... More

Good clean rooms, lovely bathrooms. A bit small for a couple with a lot of baggage perhaps? My door was awful and you had to shoulder barge it shut, which made a lot of noise. But I was told that all doors are being replaced, so this won't be a problem in the future. Breakfast had a decent selection. Scrambled... More

I went for a meal straight from work with friends on Friday 12/08 and was so impressed by the setting, food, presentation and staff in general that I returned on Sunday the 14th to treat my dad to lunch. This time we sat outside to make the most of the weather - and again was really impressed. Lovely atmosphere, surroundings... More

The Riverside Hotel sits in an idyllic spot upon the banks of the River Trent. The hotel has recently been refurbished in a tasteful way. It is clear that thought has been given in the decor to the river locality thus making it a relaxing setting in which to dine (especially on a glorious summer evening such as this!). What... More

Stayed here for 3 nights last weekend. The hotel was clean and modern and all staff were friendly and helpful. The room had everything you needed, and a nice river view, but it was small, the bed also seemed to be a small double (presumably to fit it in), the bathroom was modern and shower excellent, but there was no...

Friday evening around 7pm and restaurant was certainly not packed . After an hours wait for food and having to ask how much longer we would have to wait, we were told that a glitch somewhere meant that the kitchen hadn't received our order ( although we noticed other tables complaining of long waits ) . Twenty minutes on the... More

We had our daughter's wedding here and we were over the moon with the hotel and the service we received. The hotel and gardens are immaculate, having recently been through a major refurbishment. The catering is impressive, three course service for 63 delivered without a single problem. Food delivered hot and accurately to all guests who were all delighted with... More

As this hotel has recently been refurbished we thought it time to pay it a lunchtime visit. We arrived on a sunny day and had an aperitif at a table in the garden. The setting is delightful with plenty of tables outside with lovely views of the river. We had our menus and selected our food before going into the... More

Came across this restaurant at the back of a housing estate. Waited 45 minutes for our food. The chef should be sacked! A table of 4 next to us had waited longer and when their 4 steaks appeared they were all sent back because they were all overcooked. I had the sea bass & scallop risotto! It was awful thick... More

Thank you for your comments we can only apologise for the wait on the food and that you were not happy with your food and the member of staff that spoke you. You should not have waited that long or you should have been informed when you was seated that there was a wait on food. I am sorry that... More
