There's not that much choice in the immediate area, so for me there was something of a feeling of chance in booking the Riverhill. However I was happy with my decision to stay there. My room was on the small side, but immaculately clean. Breakfast was good, albeit the hot selection portions were rather stingy - when only ordering a small selection from the full breakfast it's friendly to give more than one rasher of bacon and one sausage. But ingredients were quality. The restaurant was full so I couldn't eat in there in the evening, but I picked up from locals that the restaurant is very highly regarded indeed. It's a little on the pricey side - check their website for deals. Staff were friendly.
Beware that the cab firm they favour is not reliable - I ordered a cab for 5.00pm, and went downstairs at 4.55pm to see it driving away. "I'm afraid they are a bit impatient" I was told. Leaving because your fare has not turned up more than 5 minutes early is just downright rude and unacceptable, let alone impatient. I ended up late for an appointment - Riverhill, change your cab company!
Overall a good hotel staffed by pleasant, well-intentioned staff.
