The riverside has a charm that chain hotels just cant provide. Rent a bicycle and the location becomes great. The rooms are big and nice and the staff are friendly and happy people. I have enjoyed my 5 nights and was positively surprised after reading thru the reviews. Breakfast was the only meal i have eaten there and loved it.... More

I would say that the location is not perfect. It’s about 20 min walk to the shopping and dining area. It’s not close to the beach. However the hotel area is very nice, calm. There is a pool, more suited for adults, than children. The rooms were big, clean and in every way comfortable. You sleep great in the huge... More

Large and noisy construction site right next to the hotel. The construction will be going on for the next 1-2 years. The beds are horribles, hard like stones. Only good things to say about the hotel is the breakfast.

When I first reviewed Riverside 4 years ago, I said that it was a hidden gem. Well, I am genuinely sad to say that the gem has lost its sparkle. First of all though the positives: The Riverside is in a fantastic location being 2 minutes from the beach and 5 minutes from the myriad of shops and restaurants. The... More

Have just spent two weeks in what felt like a beautiful Thai home. When we left, it was like we were leaving family. The service was absolutely the highlight of our stay - yet careful and fun. This is as far from the chain hotel experience as you can get. Our room had all the hallmarks of exceptional Swiss design... More

This was our 3rd visit and as good as ever. The Riverside is privately owned and the service is brilliant. A la Carte breakfast on the terrace, great rooms and spotlessly clean. The hotel cannot compete with the huge marketing budgets of larger, chain hotel groups. However if you appreciate personal service and your business being genuinely appreciated then this... More

This wonderful hotel is everything one could ask for is a seaside holiday resort. Every room has beautiful views of the ocean, the river alongside the hotel and overlooks the pool and lush green gardens. The rooms and ensuites are spacious, spotless, modern and tastefully furnished. A 2min wall through the garden and you are on the beach with plenty... More

Stayed their for the second time last month and thoroughly enjoyed it. This place might be not for travellers who only look for standardized 4- and 5-star Sheraton/Hilton etc properties.

I want to emphasize that the staff was incredibly nice and tried their hardest to fix the issues that came up. Overall: very nice staff but quite outdated facilities. The shower did not initially work, then produced rust colored water. The bed was so hard that we ultimately left and paid for a hotel down the road -- one that... More

As long as you have a car or motorcycle it's great to stay there. We were there together with the parents of my boyfriend and even for the off-season we had a great price deal, which was better than the offer on budget-booking-sites on the web - just call there and ask what they can do with the price.
