    • Older travelers
      5.4

      The two staff we encountered on our two night stay were polite and very helpful, i feel they were making the best out a very average situation.

      Would not stay at this establishment again. The place is owned by Mitsubishi motors. You have to go into their factory depot to gain entrance into the hotel. I think the establishment is primarily used for the Mitsibishi drivers/couriers for a stop over during nationwide deliveries. The hotel inside is tired looking and in desperate need of Painting and decorating.

    • Group of friends

      The only person we had contact with who had any connection to management was the guard at the plant gate. When the power went out in all the outlets in our room, there was no one to help. There was no one to greet us or inform us about the place.

    • Older travelers

      We stayed Friday and Saturday nights. We knew that there would be no reception staff on duty and had to book in at the gate (which was manned 24 hours). This caused no problems. Only breakfast was available, which was cooked and served in a very clean and comfortable restaurant. The chef was very welcoming and helpful. Food was good.

    • Older travelers
      5.8

      The breakfast was excellent and parking was in a secure compound.

      Carpets were stained, toe nail clippings on the floor, hair around the bathroom. The room is tired and needs updating.This hotel is a 3 star at very best, never a 4 star.

      The staff were very friendly & accomodating. I needed to make a few tweeks to my stay & it was no trouble at all at Riverside House, unlike some of the chain hotels that I've stayed at. The negative feedback from some of the people is un justified. They have been honest in their description regarding Bar opening etc so there should be no complaints from guests. I knew exactly what I was getting!.

    • Single
      4.2

      The staff that I met were really friendly, but only met two during my whole stay.

      Access to the hotel was confussing as you had to go through the mitsubishi security gates. The reception area was basic cupboard, there was no lift luckly I was on the first floor, they stopped serving food in the restaurant at 8pm and the bar closed at 9pm. There was no area to sit in the bar area to relax. The decor in the rooms was very dated with cracks in the ceiling and dirt marks on the carpets at the edges ! Worrying to find out also the hotel is left unstaffed in the evenings also

      There was a lady I think her name is Mary who was extremely helpful very cheerful and nothing was too much trouble for her. The room was very clean and comfortable and the price was very good . we thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and the food was excellent. I have recommended it to my friends and family Thankyou very much

    • Couple

      The room was nicely set up, the sort of thing you'd expect from a good hotel. The staff were very nice and I like the fact that the store cupboard was open at the weekend for guests to get more teabags, cups, towels and hair dryers when ever they needed.

      The location is quite unpleasant with lots of noise from lorries as this is a mitsubishi site. The taps in the rooms have strange controls and I got burnt lots of times by the hot water. I was only staying here to visit my boyfriend and not a holiday so I wasn't too bothered by the bad things but the price and 4 star rating is not reflective of the quality of the hotel.

      Great value overall but staff were extremely pleasant.

      The bar was shut at the weekend.

      Location, price, staff, food all the things I need when on business

    • Older travelers
      2.4

      On arrival handed keys by a security guard with no explanation or welcolm greeting, tap leaking in bathroom once we eventually found our room and room was gruby and dirty. On being moved to a 2nd room it was still dirty and the bed was lumpy and very uncomfortable. I would not reccomend this hotel to anyone!

    • Older travelers
      7.8

      The staff were very friendly and helpful. The beds were very comfortable and there was an excellent supply of hot water at all times.

      We did not like the approach to the hotel, nor the location and it was difficult to find. The entrance was unattractive and the reception area, once we had found it, was very third rate and not what one would expect in a good hotel. Although the room was absolutely fine, the tv did not work properly (the channels were all mixed up and it was difficult to find the one you wanted). The restaurant was attractive enough but was let down by the very poor food, except for the breakfast which was good.

    • Older travelers
      9.6

      We were very impressed for the price. Gated parking with 24/7 security guard, very comfy room, very clean, weekend staff very helpful, it is very much a self service situation but the staff were always there to help.

    • Older travelers
      5.8

      Location was ok!

      Room was not very clean, stains on the carpet floor, dust on some tops. Bathroom ceiling not a pleasant sight, peeling ceiling and generally damp.. Room was very average and we have stayed in hotels for around the same price where the decor, condition and general maintenance was of a much higher standard. Would not recommend or visit again.
