Centrally located just 0.9 miles from the station. The town is good some nice shopping arcades and lovely walks over numerous bridges around the town. Room one was large with lovely views over the river and green space. Free wifi and large tv. Good hot shower. Elaine looked after us really well. Breakfast and packed lunch were first class. She...

This B&B is close to the centre of Morpeth with views out the back straight onto the river. Elaine and Mike both made me feel really welcome and made my stay really enjoyable. Parking is on the street via parking permit but owners helped find a space so no problem. Breakfast was excellent! All in all, a good stay and... More

My daughter and I stayed here for one night at the beginning of our Northumberland Coast walk. Our bags had been lost on arrival to the UK and we weren't quite sure what to do.

Hold the front pages !!!!! - The marmite man has made it to Morpeth with a mountain of Marmite and the Riverside is fully stocked (well it was till I started eating it).

We only stayed for one night while visiting relatives, however we can highly recommend this guest house. Don't be deceived by first appearances. Once inside it's huge, with well appointed and immaculately clean bedrooms, a homely atmosphere and some very interesting artwork and personal decorations. Plus, the view down to the river is stunning - if you don't have a... More

Lovely room overlooking the river and park. Stylish and quirky decor was a pleasant surprise. Owner is just lovely and the breakfast was almost worth the visit in itself! Perfectly situated for visiting a range of attractions. We will be back - thank you x

Viewed from Newgate Street this looks like a very ordinary terrace house. But inside it is a Victorian home, especially when seen from the riverside (hence the name). The owner Elaine is a lovely lady, making guests feel welcome as soon as stepping over the threshold and always available to help. Don't have the full English Breakfast or you won't... More
