Shard Riverside Hotel
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 January 2014

An excellent hotel if you are staying in the Wyre Valley area for business or pleasure.
Well priced - clean comfortable rooms, free Wi-Fi (which works perfectly), proper individually cooked breakfast (not a buffet), and really helpful and friendly staff.
I have never eaten an evening meal here, but I am told that is also very good food.
Highly recommended.

Our second visit to the Shard Riverside, Jan 14, and once again full marks to Paul Hurst and his entire team there. Excellent food and excellent service. We were made to feel really welcome by each member of staff who all went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable.

The views from the bedroom windows of the estuary and the countryside were most pleasurable.

Only one small criticism, and it is minor, the bathroom in our room (6) could have been a little more user friendly, ie a shelf above the wash hand basin would have been useful.

We will certainly stay again at the Shard Riverside in the future.

I spent a night here this week whilst on a business trip and found it to be a most pleasant experience. From the moment I arrived, where I was greeted by a very friendly gent on reception who ensured I was happy with everything, to the dining experience in the evening where the steak was done to a tee and the waitresses were polite, attentive and always smiling, to a great night's sleep during a very noisy storm, and an excellent breakfast the following morning. The view was lovely and I'd like to go back during the warmer months.

This was about as perfect as it gets in terms of business stopovers.

Many thanks to all the staff.

nice atmosphere and service is friendly yet professional.
Good meals even if portions aren`t as big as elsewhere.
Go from time to time still and always enjoy the experience.

This was our fourth, maybe fifth visit to the Shard and, once again, I can only comment on its comfort, friendliness, food quality and location.

This time all the family went - for an overnight between Christmas and New Year - and everyone thoroughly enjoyed our, albeit, short time there.

Thoroughly recommended.

Again!!!

Room Tip: Go for a river view.

I stumbled on this place completely out of the blue, having been let down by the other place I tried to get a room in for the night (The Norbreck Castle - Avoid) . The location is beautiful and the view looking across the river when I woke up in the morning was beautiful.

The staff are all friendly and all willing to chat for a minute every so often even though they all had a million other things to do.
I hadn't slept for about 60 hours by the time I got there, so I become a bit of a one pint wonder when I decided to kill some time in the bar/restaurant, yet the staff were all good enough to humour me when my brain allowed me to string together a sentence.

The bed was comfy, the room more than adequate for what I was looking for.

All the food was fantastic, I had both dinner and breakfast in the morning at the hotel, it all all tasted like good honest home cooking made by someone who knows what they're doing.

Would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting the area, not a million mile from me anyway; so I'll probably head back for the odd pint with a friend.
