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...

Branston room was lovey, except for one or two things and the noise at 7 in the morning. As its the only room in the hotel itself they lock the bedroom door at night (understandably) if there is a problem i.e. a fire you can leave via the fire exit. The heating in the bathroom does not work. and the...
