We stayed here 18-20 May 2017. We arrived to a very warm welcome. Our room was light, airy, spacious and clean with a lovely view from the bathroom window looking down the river towards the harbour (don't worry there is a blind for privacy!). We had specifically requested a room with a bath, which we got. However, we had the...

Clocked in on a very last minute 5 day break, the staff couldn't have been more helpful. The food was excellent. So many breakfast options, including kippers, smoked salmon plus the usual, including full English. Couldn't have chosen a better hotel in this small, friendly area. So many great locations to visit from here ..

Booked one night here on our way home, room was excellent and very comfortable. We had a double that looked out to the stream. The room was nicely decorated and the en suite bathroom was large, clean and had an excellent shower. The breakfast set us up for the trip home. Staff very welcoming and friendly. Would definitely stay here...

It is disappointing that on both occasions you express your dissatisfaction with our Sunday Carvery and vow never to return again. We hold our Carvery each week offering...

We stayed here when walking the South West Coast path and arrived tired and with very sore feet after a spectacular (but long) days walking. The welcome couldn't be faulted and we were soon restored and ready for the next day. All the staff went out of their way to be friendly and helpful and we even got a lift...

Ate at The Riverside twice during the course of a long weekend break. Both times my wife and I were very impressed with the quality of the food and the excellent service we received from everyone there. Not only that the food was excellent value for money. Highly recommended if you're in the area.
