      The bar prices were very reasonable

      The accomodation is bad. My room was scruffy and tired. Worst of all the toilet had been used but not flushed!

      The breakfast was lovely and the waitress very helpful. The wedding we attended was the reason for staying at the hotel so it was very convenient especially having children. The outdoor area overlooked the river so was very scenic.

      When you moved the net curtains dead flies dropped from above and the room was quite stuffy at night time. The exterior of the hotel need a good coat of paint as it looks very drab and untidy. Dogs are allowed to stay in rooms and on our return at nigh time dogs could be heard barking. Luckily we were on a different floor but one of our relatives was opposite the room where a dog and its owner were staying.

      Their breakfast is memorable. The staff are lovely. Bedrooms a bit small and the beds do need upgrading. They are too soft but the Riverside is not alone in this. A lot a of waste space in the bathroom but spotless.

      Bed...too soft.

      The only redeeming feature of the hotel was the lovely Italian lady who served me breakfast, she was a real treasure.

      It is so tired it needs knocking down.

      The food was nice

      Lack of staff. The bartender was alone in managing the bar but he was also responsible for booking in, helping with the waiting on tables and come the end of the night, the cleaning. Although the gentleman concerned was very polite and evidently hardworking, I'm not sure it gives a good impression. I for one willnot be going back.

      comfortable surroundings in restaurant and bar, decent wine selection and food was ok and reasonably priced.

      I had to go to the kitchen every time we wanted a round of drinks to find staff to serve us, except when the female bartender stood a metre from our table watching the tv show we had on for an hour, completely ignoring empty plates and glasses on our table. I cleared them myself in the end.

      The only thing I liked was the Breakfast on the second and third morning, on the second morning I was greeted by a very friendly lady by the name of Iva, on the third morning by a man (whos name I dinn't ask, on both these days the breakfast and service was excellent.

      The service of breakfast on the first day.

      Bathrooms need updating - forget the bath just put in a good shower. Difficult with cases when negotiating stairs & through fire doors in upstairs hallway. Meals to not have to be so big. We enjoyed our stay and your staff were very pleasant. Our family reunion was fantastic & we thank you for your co-operation in that regard

      Beer Garden by the river was pleasant as weather was warm and sunny.The breakfast was good and freshly cooked.

      Room very dated with tiny bathroom - had to ask for towels for the room.Food in the restaurent was quite good but ther was not enough staff so service was poor.I reserved a table and the staff allowed some other people to take my table and I and my guests had to move to a really dark corner of the room.

      It is in such a suprising location and you have no idea you are so close to Burton. The food was fantastic and it was a lovely setting. The lady who ran the breakfast - from protugal i believe - was amazing!

      Some of the staff seems a little unprofessional.

    • Group of friends
      4.6

      Food was ok.

      The rooms were cramped. Myself & other guest both had problems with showers not working / dripping constantly. Paper-thin walls meant enduring ear shattering snoring for my night. wifi was non-existent.

    • Older travelers
      7.4

      Quiet location. Friendly service. Comfortable room. Good breakfast.

      Tree or bush branches slightly covering sign on main road. Had to turn round and go back It wasn't properly visable and next sign on the estate had leaves partially covering it.
