We stayed here a couple of nights while exploring Morpeth and the surrounding countryside. The host was great and greeted us warmly and had some very useful tips on what to do and where to go. It was nice and quiet and close to everything. The breakfast was excellent, everything was made from scratch and pretty much what you'd expect...

Thank you very much for your review. I can't take credit for Morpeth and all the great walks, villages and coastline of Northumberland, but very pleased you were comfortable at Riverside for your stay. Kind regards Elaine

I visited Riverside Guesthouse on a business trip to Northumberland in mid-March and I highly recommend it for other business travelers taking a trip to the area. In the centre of Morpeth, this B&B combines the traditional homely warmth and hospitality of a B&B with good amenities and customer service. Good, reliable internet connection, space to work in the rooms...

Stayed here this week for 3 nights with my wife & daughter to wander around the Northumberland coast. Elaine was very informative and helped us to plan some great tours and places to eat, along with very comfortable rooms, smashing breakfasts and a cosy residents lounge so we could chill out after very active days. We soon realised that there...

Had a bad stay at this B&B on Newgate Street in Morpeth. The noise from the main road (right outside) was really load. If you can sleep through boy racers revving their engines and lorries and tractors barrelling past all night them go for it! Not me. Parking wasn't ideal - on street parking only in certain bays of which...

Hi Veritaserum1 It is disappointing to hear that you did not enjoy your stay at Riverside Guesthouse. The house itself has two sides with rooms available on both the town side and the river side and descriptions of these rooms are given at the time of booking whether it be on the phone, email or via a booking site.

This B&B was booked for us on a business trip to Morpeth - and I'm very glad they chose this one. Centrally located in the town and with rooms with views over the river, it made a very good base to explore the surrounding area. Elaine, our hostess, was very amenable and helpful - even making herself available to welcome...

Although I only stayed here overnight, the Riverside Guest House is in a great location for the centre of town. Elaine is a very helpful and pleasant host and was able to accommodate my family at short notice. The breakfast had a good selection of hot and cold food and will set you up for the day. Guests are given...

Thank you very much for taking the time to give a review. I wish all my rooms were on the riverside of the house, as you say it is the country side with great views, in the middle of a charming town with good eating venues within a couple of minutes walk. Glad you were comfortable. Kindest Elaine

This B&B is close to the centre of Morpeth with views out the back straight onto the river. Elaine and Mike both made me feel really welcome and made my stay really enjoyable.
