Nothing too much trouble.

Guests have been extremely satisfied with the breakfast service and restaurant cuisine at this hotel. There are many meal options to choose from. The full English breakfast is excellent and includes extras such as yoghurts, cereals and a selection of meats and cheeses.

Negative Reviews

Too noisy.

Some guests report that it can get really loud in The Riverside House and it is usually due to the bars it has available open until late hours. Some guests say that if you value your sleep and enjoy sleeping before 2am, you might want to consider other hotel options.

Solely an events venue?

Some guests seem to believe that this hotel is more of an events venue than a guest house. This is due to the fact that there would be a full parking lot one minute, (leaving them nowhere to park even though the hotel has a sign saying "hotel residents only") and then an empty parking lot the following day. This would happen repeatedly.

Need more staff.

Some guests feel as though the breakfast service would be a little better if they had more than one person working the dining room. There seemed to be a lack of staff when the hotel would book larger crowds or events.
