The hotel itself is ok and reasonably located for the town. Personally we have had the worst sleep in a hotel in our life with partying and loud music going on until 01:30am. The room we had was on the front of the hotel, not too bad until you notice the bedroom windows shaking every time someone goes through the...

I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights on business. The rooms were large and well appointed. The bed was comfortable and the breakfast was superb. I must recommend the smoked salmon and scrambled eggs. The staff were very friendly and efficient and I may even come back here with my girlfriend for a weekend away. The only negatives were...

We stopped off here for a coffee with an elderly relative. We were warmly welcomed and shown through to the lounge where we ordered our decaffeinated cappuccinos and a plate of biscuits. We moved to sit outside on the terrace and coffee arrived punctually with some very nice assorted biscuits. Service was friendly and welcoming and the cloakrooms were outstanding....

From the warm welcome to the cheery goodbye everything about our stay was warm friendly and welcoming. The bedroom was spotless, the bed very comfortable and the bathroom was deceptively spacious and spotlessly clean. The food was beautifully presented and very good portion sizes, and very tasty. All of the staff we met were friendly, warm and seemed very helpful....

Stayed for one night on the way to Newmarket Races. I totally disagree with the Pewterjuglady! We found the hotel and staff very inviting and welcoming. The hotel was very nicely decorated throughout with very tasteful furnishings etc. Although we didn't have an evening meal the restaurant catered very well for breakfast. The waitress definitely deserves a mention as she...

My daughter had her wedding reception at the Riverside last week. It could not be faulted.
