Closed Hotel!!
I arrived at the hotel just after 8 pm on Friday 14/11/14 to find it closed for renovation. I'd even received confirmation and an itinerary from you. Fortunately I was able to find another hotel within an hour. I've spoken to the hotel this morning and they tell me that they had cancelled their contract with you a few months ago and therefore you shouldn't be taking bookings. It also happened to a family last week but they had arrived during the day and so were directed to another hotel. Will you please respond to this email accordingly and confirm that my credit card hasn't been charged. I would certainly welcome your comments.

A nice hotel with lots of character
A nice comfortable room in a charming building with a great location, let down by poor staff training and a lack of attention to detail.

3/5 Okay

Old & Creaky
Old building and very creaky. Dark rooms with low ceiling. Walls are paper thin & you can hear other guest TV & their conversation (plus other sounds & activities) late night, not very good when trying to go to sleep ready for the next day. Upon arrival toilet was not cleaned as it needed couple of flush from previous user users bowel movement. Very very poor indeed. Not impressed from house keeping standard. there is no car park onsite, so you have to park across the road on the public car park and pay £5 for 24 hours parking.

Complete shambles between hotels.com and Riverside
Despite booking 2 rooms way in advance of our stay, when my colleague and I checked into the Riverside Inn we were informed that the Riverside Inn no longer officially worked with hotels.com and our booking had not been processed to them! They then managed to free up one room but my colleague was then forced to move to a different hotel at a much higher cost to us! Not good enough...
