Dear Richard,

thank you so much for ou perfect stay. After a long day in Sussex it was beautifull to arrive in your accomodation. The room was very nice, clean and confortable, and your breakfast gave us the right energy to face a new travel day.
Thank you also for your suggestions: Restaurant (Wingrove House) and things to do and see. It was very usefull.
I hope to be back soon, there so many thing still to see around!
Ps: Say hallo to the foxes!!

We had a wonderful long weekend in the south downs based at Riverdale House. We round Richard to be very helpful and willing to go the extra mile without being asked.

The location is good as it is very quiet, right on the South Downs way but you can still get into Alfriston.

Rooms were clean, big enough and had everything you expect.

Enjoyed a lovely stay at Riverdale. Our room was clean, comfortable and well equipped. Bed very comfortable and room nicely furnished. Great choice of breakfast and cooked well. Richard and Judy are very good hosts. We were welcomed on arrival and given lots of useful information about the village and surrounding area. Quant old village with superb pubs.

We needed some where to stay at the last minute and Richard was very accommodating dealing with our booking over the phone. The B&B was very comfortable - wonderful sheets, bed and towels. All very clean and nothing was too much trouble. Really friendly and welcoming couple. Would definitely recommend.

Our stay at Riverdale House was one of our best holiday experiences. Owner Richard is nothing but kind, and also very patient towards the children. We got a nice combination of rooms, which were just beautiful. The views are stunning, and breakfast is excellent. We would rather keep this place to ourselves, but that wouldn't be fair. We will definitely go back to visit Riverdale House again!

Excellent views, nice spacious, well equipped and comfortable bedroom. Friendly hosts though no one in when we arrived. We paid £110 but bathroom (very small and poor quality - shower head did not adjust, grouting dirty and hand basin chipped and cracked) was on the landing. A curtain separated it from the rest of the landing!

Room Tip: Check that you are booking an en suite room

A warm welcome from Richard on arrival, superb breakfasts from Judy and great local knowledge from both helped make our short weekend away to the South Downs a real success. Beautiful setting and only a short walk from Alfriston - they even give you a torch to guide you on the dark evenings!
