After a drive thru torrential rain from Glasgow then arriving in the city and walking thru the rain to find accommodation, The Riverside Hotel was a welcome site. The rooms are very nice indeed, the price OK and it's literally right on the river. I booked 2 rooms for us and our friends and we both were happy with what we got. They were comfortable and very nice. The only downside I could find was with the dinner. They tell you if you want to eat in their restaurant you must prebook so we did. What we wern't told was it's a 3 course menu with choices for 25GBP. My husband and I don't eat 3 courses and there was no alternative. The friends travelling with us were happy with the choices so stayed but we went downstairs to the bar and had meal there. We were both happy with our choices but it made it a bit akward when we actually walked out of the restaurant. If we had been told when we booked in what to expect it would have saved any embarrassment.
