We have just returned from a 3 day stay at the hotel and we enjoyed it greatly. Our room was lovely, very clean and with a comfortable bed. The ensuite was spacious with an excellent shower and a plentiful supply of towels and toiletries. Breakfast were wonderful, with a wide choice of cereals, cheese and meats, yogurts etc plus a range of cooked breakfasts which were obviously freshly cooked to a high standard on order. We chose to eat in a couple of evenings during out stay and could not praise the meals highly enough. The waiting staff were friendly and efficient, the bar staff were helpful and the chef was obvious talented!
We had a wonderful 3 days at the hotel and have already booked to return for the New Year.

We recently spent a night here and attended a wedding, organized within the hotel. Our feelings were mixed. We enjoyed our high ceilinged room very much and had a very good night's sleep; we did wonder, however, how we'd have felt if we had not been involved with the wedding, which rather took over the hotel. Food was ordinary, based on a wedding breakfast, but that probably isn't a fair basis for judgement. Breakfast of the more normal kind was a disappointment: having told us it was available from 7am we found no-one ready and it was clear we would be lucky to be finished by 7.30am, so we had to skip it. Probably not somewhere I will use on my more everyday visits to the region; I think there are better alternatives nearby - and certainly better organized alternatives.

We stayed here for a night in August 2013, it was our friends 40th wedding anniversary celebration. We arrived just after 3pm and ordered afternoon tea, what a lovely treat. The staff were all very friendly and accommodating. This is defiantly a very well run hotel. The room we stayed in was very clean and fresh. Such a lovely spot for a hotel

As many of the other reviewers have said, it is a great venue for a wedding and I totally agree. My brother and sister-in-law got married here and we had a fabulous time. We also stayed the night with the rest of the family booking out the 15 rooms available. The food was really tasty and beautifully presented, the service was friendly, you didn't have to wait long to be served and the large garden is beautiful. The room we stayed in was really large, the shower was lovely as were the free little shampoo's and shower gel's. The bed was awesome. We slept so well and didn't want to get out in the morning!! But worth getting out for the breakfast which again was very tasty. This hotel is just on the outer edge of Mildenhall. A five minute walk to the shops. There is lots of room to park if you drive.

Room Tip: We stayed in 21 which looked out onto the gardens and was nice and quiet.

We held our daughters wedding at the Riverside Hotel in August 2014. We are so pleased we chose this venue it was a fantastic day , the service was second to none. Everyone was made to feel welcome, and nothing was too much trouble. The setting is excellent for the pictures and guests to relaxing in. The rooms where all spotless and very comfortable. All the food was thoroughly enjoyed by all our guests and breakfast was first class too. I wouldn't think twice about choosing the Riverside again for any future celebrations we may have. A big thank you to Ged and staff!!

A top quality hotel with great food, modern rooms and friendly staff. Me and my wife recently got married at the Riverside Hotel and had an amazing day, which the hotel played a major role in. From our first meeting planning the wedding with Ged to the final details of the day the management team in particular could not do enough for us as well the fabulous staff. Their relaxed but organised manner allowed us to shape and make the day our own rather than the prescriptive packages deals that we had encountered looking around other venues. Knowing the food was great prior to the big day was important and none of our guests were left disappointed with an amazing 3 course meal.

I would highly recommend this Hotel and we will certainly be back.

We booked to stay for 2 nights with a Living Social voucher and were not sure what to expect. We were very impressed. The hotel is gorgeous and we had lovely views from our bedroom window onto the back lawn and river itself. Breakfast was delicious as was the meal we had one evening in the resturant. As an added treat they did afternoon tea on the Sunday afternoon with a jazz band playing. So we sat in out room with the massive window open reading books, watching the world go by and listening to great music. A blissful two days
