Relaxing, elegance from days gone by. Comfy beds and a delicious complimentary breakfast buffet. This 131 year old gem is full of neat antiques, and the grounds are lovely. Does it have all the bells and whistles of a modern chain hotel--no--it has something better--charm and character! Rooms are a bit small, and bathroom is clean, with good water pressure,...

Interesting varied menu. I had beer cheese soup and Cuban sandwich. Soup was excellent sandwich soso. They used ciabatta roll for sandwich and it would have been much better on a more traditional bread. Friend had shrimp mac and cheese and said shrimp was good but pasta wasn't cooked enough. Nice historic location

We visited the Riverside Inn for the Father's Day buffet. I have been here before, and this inn always has such a peaceful atmosphere. Every time you visit this place, you see something unique you have not noticed before. The building is filled with antiques and artwork. The grounds were lush and beautiful this time of year. The meal had...

The Riverside Inn in Cambridge Springs, PA, is a delightful place to stay. The inn is a combination of bed and breakfast, restaurant and dinner theater. It is chock a block with antiques, all of which were collected by the present owner of the inn over a number of years (I cannot imagine how many estate sales and auctions he...

The hotel is totally beautiful with many antiques. The diningroom was decorated for Spring with flowers, straw hats and tiny lights. It was picture perfect. Everyone is friendly and helpful. When we were there it was raining but the grounds are manicured and weddings are held in the garden. The hotel is very large with a ballroom and meeting rooms....

The dining room and the Inn were beautifully decorated for Christmas. The beautiful live trees were amazing. We went for lunch and the food was excellent. Our server was pleasant and made sure we had everything wee needed. The antiques were all beautiful. We surely enjoyed our time there.

A friend of mine had been wanting to stay in this historic hotel for several years now, so for a birthday surprise, I reserved a room for us to experience it. The hotel was built back in the 1880's, and much of the decor reflects that. The rooms are very nice. They still have that "old" feeling to them despite...

I was at the Riverside for a testimonial banquet, in the town where i went to college. The Riverside Inn is now 130 years old, and the place is fantastic. The rooms are quaint, and the antique furniture is amazing. The restaurant is really good. They have a free breakfast buffet for all guests who stay there, and the lunches...

First time there and we loved this place. Don't go if you are looking for all the bells and whistles; it is a step back in time, a place to slow down and relax; a real Victoria Inn that was wonderful on all counts. No TV's in the rooms only in the spacious lobby along with puzzles and games, no...
