We arrived on Friday evening, and we were greeted by the lovely staff. Our room was spotless and really well decorated, in the evening we decided to eat in the restaurant, sadly for us it was fully booked so we had to walk into the local town. Saturday evening we booked a table and we were so glad we did,...

I have stayed at this hotel several times and liked the atmosphere and the fantastic setting. Now it has been transformed. There has been an excellent makeover, very modern, very stylish, brilliant shower room, great lighting and most of all very comfortable. The sockets have integral USB charging points. Certainly made the best of the rooms. The original great breakfast...

The Riverside Hotel is a good combination of a friendly local pub and small hotel with conference or function facilities. I believe there was a re-furbishment last year and certainly both the public rooms and my bedroom were in good order and comfortable. I had remembered the place from having a business lunch there many years ago - I think...

Clean rooms in a secure building. Key cards worked well, unlike some hotels! Room very adequate with decent shower room and nice view. Comfortable bed and relatively quiet air conditioning. Excellent breakfast with good choice, including delicious eggs royale. Evening meals and drinks good value and tasty. Cheerful, welcoming service. Would stay again without any hesitation.

My first visit to this tucked away hotel/restaurant on the outskirts of Burton on Trent with family proved a very good choice as we could relax and have a pre lunch coffee in the bar lounge, welcome from staff was pleasing, the dining area was spacious with views of the river Trent and outdoor tables on the side of river...

We chose the Superior room since our visit was at the end of November and we thought we may end up in our room more than if we had a sunny summer evening. Well we did spend more time in our room, but were not as comfy as we had hoped. The hotel has got rid of its radiators and...

We have just returned from staying here for Christmas. The hotel is lovely and every member of staff couldn't do enough for you. We were made to feel so welcome. Our room was lovely, the food was fantastic and the location was beautiful, right on the banks of the River Trent. A real nice touch was that on Christmas morning...
