We were welcome at The Riverside from the moment the door opened when we arrived until the moment we left a couple of days later. Checking in was the easiest we have ever encountered and we were shown to our room (Room 2) on the 1st floor which overlooked the river with views down towards the harbour. The room was well appointed with everything that you could possibly want. We took our evening meals at the hotel too. Service in the restaurant, as throughout the hotel, is marvellous. The menu is wide and caters for all tastes. The food itself is just excellent. Not a single scrap of food went back to the kitchen from our plates during our stay.
Breakfast is of a high quality with a variety of cooked options available, and no wonder that it is award-winning. There are cereals, fruit juices and fish available for breakfast too.
Earlier reviews on this site complain that the hotel should only be 3 star and not 5 star. Well, if you look with more attention, you will see that the 5 stars are from Visit England.com and not the AA or RAC schemes. The hotel well deserves its accreditation.
We had a relaxing and enjoyable stay here, were treated well throughout our stay and have no hesitation is recommending it to others and will return in the future I am sure.
