We spent a really nice 2 days at the Riverside. Ample parking beneath the building. The welcome was friendly - coffee and scones on arrival. The evening meal was excellent. The staff and service were exemplary We will be back!

Great location for access to town. Lovely river view. Room large with ensuite and comfy bed. Leisure facilities and car park inside. Staff pleasant and helpful. Lovely for short break for couples or families.
