Stayed here this week for 3 nights with my wife & daughter to wander around the Northumberland coast. Elaine was very informative and helped us to plan some great tours and places to eat, along with very comfortable rooms, smashing breakfasts and a cosy residents lounge so we could chill out after very active days. We soon realised that there...

Had a bad stay at this B&B on Newgate Street in Morpeth. The noise from the main road (right outside) was really load. If you can sleep through boy racers revving their engines and lorries and tractors barrelling past all night them go for it! Not me. Parking wasn't ideal - on street parking only in certain bays of which...

Hi Veritaserum1 It is disappointing to hear that you did not enjoy your stay at Riverside Guesthouse. The house itself has two sides with rooms available on both the town side and the river side and descriptions of these rooms are given at the time of booking whether it be on the phone, email or via a booking site.

This B&B was booked for us on a business trip to Morpeth - and I'm very glad they chose this one. Centrally located in the town and with rooms with views over the river, it made a very good base to explore the surrounding area. Elaine, our hostess, was very amenable and helpful - even making herself available to welcome...

Although I only stayed here overnight, the Riverside Guest House is in a great location for the centre of town. Elaine is a very helpful and pleasant host and was able to accommodate my family at short notice. The breakfast had a good selection of hot and cold food and will set you up for the day. Guests are given...

Thank you very much for taking the time to give a review. I wish all my rooms were on the riverside of the house, as you say it is the country side with great views, in the middle of a charming town with good eating venues within a couple of minutes walk. Glad you were comfortable. Kindest Elaine

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...

“When you book, ask for a room on the river side of the house - the views are great!. The road side of the house can be quite noisy.”
  • View from a river side en suite double. Great view!
