“Great place to stay”
Reviewed February 1, 2012

We recently stayed 3 nights in an en-suite room overlooking the river Wansbeck. This was for my mother-in-law's 90th birthday. I chose Riverside because I have stayed before and enjoyed it.

Elaine is the heart of Riverside. This is a friendly and comfortable place to stay. Nothing seems too much trouble for Elaine who has always been very kind and helpful, specially during the bad times. Very much a "home from home" with a great breakfast!!

It's only a short walk to restaurants (try Gianni's Italian), pubs (try friendly local the Tap & Spile) and coffee shops (try Central Bean in Sanderson Arcade). It's a 20 minute walk to the station, and when I've come by car the local parking permit Elaine provides means I'm usually parked within 30 yards of the door. There's also easy access from the house to the riverside walk downstream to the castle, and in summer upstream to Mitford.

Thanks Elaine.

I have now stayed here twice on a working holiday, each time for six days - which should say it all! The house came recommended by a colleague who lives near Morpeth and who considers it his first choice for putting up friends. The rooms are a good size, spotlessly clean, and very comfortable. The breakfasts are cooked to order (what more can you ask?). And the owner, herself, couldn't have been more helpful. (I needed a little desk for my pc; she came up with a little desk; I needed a bright desk lamp; she came up with a bright desk lamp!) As for the house, itself, it has all the advantages of both town (a 5-minute walk into the town centre) and country (my lovely room looked out over the River Wansbeck in back, with access to the river walk also within minutes), both of which gave me just the breaks I needed. In short, I'll be back again.

We stayed here in December while up in Morpeth for a friend’s birthday. Room was clean, homely had a great view of the river and it's a short walk into town, and although on a main road no noise at night. Breakfast was great, cooked to order and lots of it, no lunch needed!
Overall great service, next time we are in Morpeth certainly looking to stay here again, thanks for a great stay!

I stayed with my partner at the riverside in morpeth northumberland. It would be inaccurate to say anything good about the accommodation as it is very tired indeed. The breakfast was typical cash and carry food with cats in the kitchen and dining room. Not a place we would ever visit again

Room Tip: none were good to us after speaking to another guest

Received a very warm welcome. The room had stunning views over the river and, although the B & B is on a main road, was very quiet and peaceful (as it was at the back of the house). The house is very close to town, so convenient for shopping/eating/walking. Very spacious & clean, friendly and helpful hosts. We would definitely stay here again!

We really enjoyed our stay at Riverside. Elaine was very friendly, pleasant and welcoming!
Our room was comfortable, with a nice view of the river. We would recommend it to others.
Great breakfast.
