My Wife and I stayed on Friday the 11th February as a gift from our daughter, from the moment we arrived we were made to feel more than welcome, the room was just perfect and comfortable and we relaxed within minutes, (the complimentary wine helped)
Eric & Sarah went that extra mile to make sure our stay was up to the highest of expectations, even chauffering us to a restaurant and back, never had that in all the places I have stayed.
The room we found to be exceptional with all the comforts of a four poster bed piped music and T.V. with full Sky programmes, and after having a good night's sleep we were treated to a more than adequate continental style breakfast whilst looking through the window at the panoramic views of the Ribble valley and the River Ribble.
This stay was just what we needed (we'll be back)
Thanks Eric & Sarah

Just noticed reveiws recently, we have stayed both with the previous and present owners of Riverside. The standards are just as high, in fact the additional service of wifi. full sky tv with movies and sport have made the stay even better. The breakfast hamper which the previous owners started and now continued have even improved. It was so much better having the room service. We had wine and sandwiches free of charge on arrival with fruit in the room - this was new. The check out time of noon was another unexpected bonus we have not had anywhere before. The owners very kindly took and picked us up where we went for an eveninging meal and could not have been more accomodating. Obviously having another business has helped them understand and appreciate guests needs.
Again fantastic and even improved look forward to our next vist

Accommodation fine. Location fine. If you think being told you will have the luxurious choice of breakfast in a basket delivered at a choice of either 8:00 or 8:15 because the owner has to leave for work also fine. Personally for £95 a night in a b&b I expected much more. The website, accolades and glowing reviews refer wholly to the previous owners. The current ones are more interested in their other business's.

We came here a couple of years ago and received the most fantastic welcome from Susie and Andy. Sadly they have now moved and the new owners are valiantly continuing the accommodation, but have priorities elsewhere with their own respective businesses. This meant we had to fit around their schedules, which wasn't ideal. It was the welcome we received on our first visit coupled with the location and quality of rooms that made us want to return, so we were rather disappointed at the half hearted welcome we received this time. The facilities are still good, though the attention to detail is missing - for example there was a light bulb missing from the chandelier in our room, the TV did not work properly and there were hairs on the bathroom floor. We had no hot water on our first morning and had to go and ask for it to be switched on, which rather set our day back. Bed making was cursory although the room was tidied and all supplies were replenished. Breakfast is now served in a hamper in your room, very good but served very early on one day because the owner had to go out. If you have not been before then you will probably have no complaints, but if you are expecting to receive Susie's warm welcome and the little touches she added to make it perfect, then prepare to be a bit disappointed.
