An excellent room with a quirky bath in the bedroom. The food in the restaurant was outstanding and the staff were friendly and extremely professional. We were so impressed with this hotel that we'll be making a point of visiting again whenever we can. A lovely location and a wonderful time.

A lovely setting by the river, a welcoming hotel, very clean, the bathroom was spotless. A relaxing lounge with an open fire. Fantastic food, the best fish and chips we have had in years. Would certainly go back again.

Stayed here for one night as we were going to a concert at Eden Court. Had High Tea which was very good. Breakfast was excellent as were the staff. Friendly, quick service. Room was clean, although the shower was quite small. A larger person would have struggled to even get in to it! Overall a pleasant experience and good value...

I've stayed at the Waterside on many occasions over the last few years - the quality of what is offered here is consistently excellent. The bedrooms and bathrooms are well appointed and equipped with all you would need. And the food is absolutely superb! Overall a faultless experience every time - I can't wait to go back!
