“Lovely hotel”
Reviewed April 26, 2014

We stayed at Riverside Hotel for 2 nights and can highly recommend it. The hotel looks recently decorated to an extremely high standard. Furnishings are of very high quality. We had a good sized bedroom at the front of the hotel overlooking the pretty church and cottages opposite. The excellent bathroom was modern with a very large shower. We had afternoon tea overlooking the beautifully maintained garden which goes down to the river. Afternoon tea was half the price of all the places we have previously eaten at and we can highly recommend it, the setting with the comfy lounge and beautiful garden cannot be beaten. Breakfast in the dining room overlooking the garden was delicious. We did not know what to expect when we booked this hotel but we really look forward to returning. It us a good central base for touring Cambridge and that area.

We ate here last night (a Thursday), We ordered lemon and honey chicken and lamb shank, beautiful. food took a bit longer than expected to arrive but the chef sent his apologies via the waitress. For dessert we both had the raspberry cheesecake with strawberry ice cream from the specials menu, delicious!
Having moved to the area a year ago, we usually stick to one pub nearby but thought we would try somewhere different and so glad we did.
All the staff were friendly and attentive. Well done, very happy customers!

We were invited for a family lunch (on a Monday) and hoped that the meal we had would be better than our last visit; sadly it was worse. Whilst the staff were friendly we were given menus in the bar, but did not find out about the specials menu (with cheaper dishes) until dessert. Two of us had the Slow Baked Maple Belly of Pork at £13.95 which had obviously been previously cooked and was tough, served with a tasteless lump of potato (Fondant Potato Pancetta) and
Cabbage Ragout which was made with carrots not cabbage! The Braised Shank of Lamb at £14.50 was also reheated and dry. The desserts were also not overly exciting (have had better at a Little Chef). This used to be my favourite restaurant for a light lunch and they used to produce really good looking and tasty meals at an excellent price. Alas no more.

Having booked the trip via Groupon voucher, I was a little wary as to the quality of the hotel. But I cannot thank Ged enough for his help with the initial booking and the upgrade of the room due to it being my friends birthday. We booked in smoothly and then went down a cream tea and bellini, both of which were lovely. Even though there was a wedding going on the staff could not be more helpful to us. Both the evening meal and breakfasts we had were delicious. I would recommend this hotel to all as it is a great base along with great staff and food. Another plus is it has plenty of parking. Thanks again Ged.

Room Tip: Room 23 overlooks the river and gardens.

Having booked the Riverside hotel ,without checking it out we didn,t know what to expect, what a great result, staff fantastic, room, extremely bright and very comfy and as it was a very cold day nice and warm. As for the restaurant I can't praise it enough. All in all a great couple of nights at the Riverside.

We have visited this Hotel for lunch many times and it is always superb. The menu covers all tastes and the quality and presentation is wonderful.There are generally 6 to 8 of us and all with different tastes and yet everyone loves the food. Lovely waitress too, we always go midweek.
I would recommend to anyone. We are visiting again this week.

Lovely hotel with excellent room, good beers and a superb freshly cooked breakfast. My only complaint was a £10 additional charge if you forgot to hand back your key card. I thought about this a lot and promptly handed mine in on departure. There was no acknowledgement upon receipt and it made me think this is an empty threat.

This is a disastrous marketing activity for your arrival but overall the hotel was excellent and I plan to return many times

Room Tip: Room 21 was fine but others also seemed happy with theirs. Apparently there was some traffic noise...
