Stayed over three nights at new year and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Well planned out agenda and every one of the staff were a pleasure to spend the weekend with. Food was great throughout, and the meal on Hogmanay was exceptional. Great location for the city centre

This hotel was quiet and in a central location to shops and restaurants. Being riverside it was a lovely walk in a quiet, historical neighbourhood. Staff was friendly and knowledgable about area restaurants. The room on the second floor was clean, the bed was comfortable. The hotel room was quite cozy, (on the smaller size) and a tiny bathroom. We...

We have just returned from a fantastic 3 day break at the Waterside for New Year with our parents. We couldn't fault anything. The staff were superb and went the extra mile every time. The hotel was spotless throughout and the food and entertainment was exceptional. We will definitely consider returning again next year.
