It's an excellent guest house, the place to go if you're looking for a B & B at the weekend, or a B & B with an evening meal Mon - Thurs (eg business folk on the move) Great rooms; great breakfasts; and great owners who go out of their way to be hospitable. I was in the area for...

We stayed at the Old Riverview after attending a wedding and we were not disappointed. Between us we had three rooms and the cleanliness was impeccable and the bed was big enough for three. The couple who own it are Graham and Jayne and nothing was too much trouble, in fact they went out of their way to make us...

Having never been to this part of UK before we were apprehensive about booking . Wrong we managed to pick one of the best b&b's of all time spotlessly clean, good food and very pleasant owners. With a view which could be described as a breath of fresh air to boot. Would definitely have no hesitation in rebooking thanks Jayne...

This Guest House is fabulous. Customer service, quality of food, cleanliness and rooms, are all 5 star. The full English cooked breakfast, sets you up for the day. If you don't want the cooked breakfast, there is cereal, toast, fresh juice, fruit and yoghurts. Thank you for being so welcoming, it is very much appreciated.

This is the second time we have stayed at the Old Riverview. We had various favours to ask of Graham over the weekend and every time he was very accommodating. We really enjoyed the breakfasts despite setting a difficult challenge for that as well! The full English is as good as it gets. The rooms are spotless and there is...

The owners are super friendly and provide an evening meal Monday to Thursday. Room was large and very clean with a very comfortable bed. Large choice for breakfast and I liked that you could make your choice in the morning rather than the night before like many B&Bs, all freshly cooked. I would return.

From the moment I called to book, to the moment we left, we felt extremely well looked after. On arrival, Graham was there with a beaming smile and hellos to our two toddlers, who both took a massive shine too. The room was exactly what we needed. Clean, tidy and beautifully well done. There was plenty of space for the...

A lovely guest house. The garden is along the river bank so spent a couple of hours chilling with a bottle of wine, Comfortable rooms and the breakfast was fantastic. Run by Jayne and Graham who were really friendly and made us feel very welcome. We would stay here again. Close to St. Ives which is worth a visit.
