                                      The hotel was clean and comfortable and the price was good

                                      The check in and out service was spot on. Our meal on Friday evening was not up to standard it arrived cold. Bread rolls were clearly old and dry. Saturday evening we had uncontrolled children running up and down the corridors banging on doors from around 10pm to 11pm.

                                      The service at the Riverside were very good and the staff very friendly. I thought for the amount of money we paid I thought the rooms were pretty standard.
