I stayed here with my in laws and 5 month old daughter for two nights. I could not recommend this little place highly enough! My daughter and I are dairy free and Helen bought us almond milk, df spread and df bread. The room was comfortable and spacious (I think I was given the bigger room so that I had...

I really liked this place. Helen was very accommodating, friendly and helpful. The place is tastefully decorated, well appointed and clean. My room was very appealing, as was its large en-suite. Plenty of choice for in-room drinks and nibbles. A couple of rooms were not occupied and doors left ajar, so you could see the same standard in the other...

Helen was really lovely and welcoming and her home made chicken Korma Curry and cos cous was to die for after 5 hours travelling by train. She was very helpful helping me with things I had forgotten and trying to clam me on the morning of my Husband's RAF Graduation. Highly recommended.

Very nice one night stay. Room was very nice. Lots of tea and coffee. Good breakfast with lovely sausages. Shower could have been more powerful but that was the only thing. Definitely recommend to others and I'd stay again.

Helen L, Manager at Riverside Guest House, responded to this review

Hi Phil Glad you enjoyed your stay. Unfortunatley with such a large old house we had to go for a combi boiler which gives us the most enviromentally & economical option for our heating system. So power showers not compatible. Look forward to seeing you again. Kind regards Helen

Booked here because of good reviews and we were not disappointed. Very good communication from Helen meant no problems booking in. Warm welcome, very modern rooms, fantastic ensuite and good choice of decor met with my wife's approval. Warm room and easy access to town with a Sainsbury's just down road. Helen is a very pleasant and happy go lucky...

I spend a lot of my time working away and staying in various hotels. This one is a little gem, clean comfortable room, very reasonable and Helen is a fantastic host. Breakfast is great, the porridge is the best I have had. Keep up the good work

Thank you Rob ! My grandmother would turn in her grave if i failed in making porridge. It was one of the 1st things that you are taught being Scottish. So glad you enjoyed your stay in our home. Look forward to seeing you again. Helen

Everything was ready in the two rooms we reserved. The service was faultless and the rooms were immaculate - the en suite was as big as the bedroom (the shower could house two people in comfort - not that we tried!). The location was a five minute from the town centre along little-used roads. There was parking in adjacent streets...
