“Cornish Excellence”
Reviewed 29 December 2013 via mobile

I stayed for two nights at this most excellent establishment.
My room was spotlessly clean and the breakfasts were very good and well prepared.
The owner and staff were very friendly and accommodating.
Would recommend this hotel and will definitely stay there again.

My husband and I booked this hotel to enjoy a relaxing night away from home and we made the right choice. The hotel was located in a perfect spot with a beautiful view right down the valley. The room was spacious, clean and tidy. We booked a meal in the hotel based on the choices available to us and the food was delicious, couldn't fault it. We both had steak to start, followed by White Chocolate & Malteser Cheesecake and a Cheeseboard - all of it was fantastic. A perfect relaxing break; just what we needed! Thank you.

Room Tip: Request a 'double' bed and if you're a sensitive sleeper, request a room on the front of...

I've just had a wonderful weekend at the Riverside. The staff were warm and friendly and the food was excellent. On the Saturday night we had an extremely enjoyable dinner. The Riverside is an ideal place for a winter break. I'll definitely find a reason to return.

Room Tip: Room 2 is comfortable, spacious and has great views.
