“Fantastic Wedding”
Reviewed May 14, 2012

My wife and I had our wedding reception at The Riverside in August 2011 and thought that a review was long overdue.

From the very start Ged and Maggie who run the hotel were fantastic, they listened to what we wanted, gave us ideas and provided us with the perfect day.

My wife did most of the planning with Ged and they worked through things together meeting regularly prior to the day which gave us peace of mind that everything was in hand.

We have a large family and were at the limit of what the hotel restaurant can hold but the food served to a high standard without dealy at any point and no one had to wait to be served for drinks.

The waiting staff were great and all of the rooms were prepared well, clean and spacious.

The day went without a hitch and Ged, Maggie and Suzanne worked tirelessly during the day to make sure that everything ran smoothly.

The location of the hotel next to the river and with its well looked after and colourful gardens makes for the ideal setting for wedding photos. There is plently of seating outside and the patio has plently of room as does the area next to the river itself.

Breakfast the next day was lovely, overlooking the gardens and again good service and nice food.

I have nothing but good things to say both about the staff and the hotel in general, we regularly visit the hotel for meals and drinks and have never had a bad meal during our dozens of visits.

The party night are also very good and lots of fun. We have had Christmas day lunch at the hotel for the last two years running and will be returning again this year.

Hope they keep up the great work they have been doing sice the hotels renovation a couple of years ago.

Thanks again to Ged and Maggie for laying on a wonderful day for us.

This was our second stay at the Riverside - and we are already looking forward to a third.
We felt like family returning home when we arrived - everyone knew us and were expecting us. Accomodations - We were given the same room (33) which is a family room - very spacious and comfortable. Rooms are very clean and very comfortable. The grounds and gardens are beautiful. The lounge is warm, relaxing and comfortable - much like visiting family.
Service - Everyone there is professional, warm, friendly, and very welcoming. The same staff were there this trip that we came to know during our last visit in September - they all love their roles and it shows!
Dining - The food is very good - we had breakfast, lunch, dinner, afternoon tea, and snacks durring our stay. If you go, be prepared - the desserts are amazing and it is impossible to have only a "taste".

The hotel looks lovely, recepionist was perfect, very helpful.
Room 15(double) was at the front of the hotel, clean, very small, with road noise and more so NOISE from sitting room below- we could hear people talking ! We changed to room 12, over looking the garden at the back of the hotel, much larger, but noise from bar below until 1.15 in the mornings !!!!!!!! The lift is also NEXT to this room ! ALL the bedroom windows in both rooms were LOCKED, you could NOT open them at all !!!!!!! reception said it was Health and Safety ! The rooms smelt of stale air ! What a shame ,as it could be a pleasant place to stay.

I do not normally write reviews but after a 2 night stay at the riverside house hotel i felt obliged to post some quick comments all of which are positive. The hotel is clean,comfortable and very well run.The food is good as is the service and very reasonable in terms of pricing,The staff are friendly and efficient and all in all the riverside house is a great value for money hotel that does not compromise on style or taste.Would definitely recomend especially if attended newmarket races which will cost you £20 in a taxi from the hotel.

Our daughters wedding was terrific. The staff were terrific and nothing wa too much trouble. Food excellent - rooms good - wedding organise outstanding. Basically could not fault the place and we are fairly critical. If you are thinking of booking it for a wedding don't hesitate.

Our friends' golden wedding was celebrated in style, starting with a sherry reception in an adjoining room. We were asked to choose our menus beforehand and everything was served to the correct person!
The meal was delicious, the table settings most attractive and the waitresses were re-filling wine glassed all the time! In fact, the excellent service to the 45 guests in the attractive dining-room made the day---nothing was too much trouble. I thoroughly recommend this hotel.
