After reading previous reviews we opted for Riverside Hotel, and an excellent choice it turned out to be. Brenda & Dave are the perfect people to run one of the finest establishments we have visited, in what is a great British tradition, the B&B. Both hosts are friendly without being intrusive. The location was ideal for us, 10 minutes pleasant walk along the river from town. The room was very comfortable and we felt at home right away. The breakfast at Riverside have been commented on, and rightly so. Delicious and hearty fare. We will be back.
