“Excellent Hotel and Restaurant”
Reviewed 11 March 2014

This is an excellent hotel and restaurant. Food is marvellous and reasonably priced. We have stayed here two or three times even though hotel is close by.Staff are very friendly and helpful. Nothing is too much trouble. Should not be telling people this, as hotel may get more recognition, we may find it difficult to book.One of Northumberland' s best kept secrets!!!!

The view from the very spacious Room no.1 was exceptional - however the decor was abysmally , dull and lacked colour and imagination. The newly finished bathroom made up for it!
The cuisine was outstanding, whether we ate in the bar lounge or the main dining room.
All staff were very helpful and appeared to enjoy their positions in the hotel. I enjoyed the use of the heated pool - though access was a little unusual and change room cramped.
I feel this Hotel has been through rugged times financially... The weekdays are quiet, except for a funeral wake which took over every seating area and parking bay from residents. Weekends bring fresh flowers, good food and many families to stay. Refurbishment throughout this Hotel would be a great advantage in encouraging new customers.

Room Tip: Corner suite upstairs on East side very spacious with the best view. Rooms on north side very col...

We booked an overnight stay through a special offer - seemed a great location as a half way point to meet our friends coming down from Scotland. We weren't disappointed. The hotel is in need of investment and refreshment but our room was sizeable, great views out over the river, clean, supplies of tea and coffee. All staff were enthusiastic and helpful especially in the restaurant. Breakfast was a real highlight and set us up for the day. There is plenty of car parking space, and the hotel was busy. It is a tranquil setting and we enjoyed a peaceful night's sleep. Location was good for exploring places like Corbridge, and Kielder Water. We didn't make use of the pool so can't comment on it. Our evening meal was enjoyable, the food pleasant but not exceptional. The service was superb, no waiting at all, food arrived quickly and piping hot. All in all great value.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the river with a balcony

Booked 2 nights with dinner on the first through a special offer. Had a superior room in the main hotel with a large, very comfy bed, views down to the river and good supplies of coffee, tea etc. We enjoyed the meal on the first night so much that we also ate in on the second. The hotel seems to make the most of local produce and the dishes were much more interesting than many hotels' "traditional" menus. The staff were really helpful and pleasant. A big bonus was the swimming pool about 15m long and very warm. The sauna was out of order which was a shame. The hotel has 2 stars and there are a few areas which need a little bit of tlc but we had a very enjoyable stay and a warm welcome and would certainly use the hotel agan as a base for exploring Kielder, Hadrian's Wall etc.

Room Tip: We liked our superior room in the main building but I didn't see any of the others for compariso...

We've just returned from a fantastic weekend staying at the riverdale hotel and can honestly say people who complain will spend their lives complaining. Life is what you make it. The food is fantastic, location beautiful and the staff friendly an attentive. We will definatley return.

Just back from our stay there and not that impressed. The receptionist Nicole was rather rude and not helpfull. The sauna did not work, the shaving light in our room did not have a bulb and the room could do with a bit of tlc. The food was only okay, hence to say we will not be back.
