There were 4 friends who get together every 4-6 weeks, and we have now been to the Waterside 3 times now. We had different meals and we all enjoyed the meals we had chosen, the food was plentiful, tasty, hot and nicely presented. The staff were attentive without being too fussy, being a Tuesday night there was a relaxed atmosphere.... More

My wife and I have stayed here almost every weekend since mid-May. We return weekly because the staff are friendly and always helpful and the facilities are excellent for the price- especially the pool/ fitness area. Breakfast is excellent- sometimes very busy but if you are patient and willing to occasionally wait for the hot buffet to be topped up... More

Attended another function at this hotel. Things have moved on since my rather disappointing last visit. This time things had definitely perked up. I had a pleasant mackerel pate to start, followed by a very nice braised pork belly on root veg' . Bags of flavour with this, the meat tender, but not over-cooked and the crackling just right as...

Service was fast and the selection of food ranged from healthy eating to a good old fashioned burger. It wasn't very busy in the evenings which was nice.

Went on a very quiet mid-week evening. A lovely spot but unfortunately it was raining so we couldn't sit outside, but the food was really tasty and the waitress was lovely. Even though we were the only ones in, she let us stay until everything was packed up.Would definitely recommend a visit and would go back again.

If I tried to list the number of things that went wrong with my stay I would go on forever. From double booking the room to the breakfast service it was a shambles of a stay. I hope the management take onboard my feedback and act on it. To their credit they have refunded in full the cost of my... More

Stopped in for breakfast with some family and loved the atmosphere. We sat right next to the canal and watched the boats come down. The food was pretty good, but a bit bland. I'd recommend the eggs Benedict, it was quite good. Would love to try lunch or dinner here if we ever get a chance.

We ate here the first night, good food, really tasty but a little bit pricey. The breakfast, which was included in our price, was excellent. a very good choice from full English to help yourself toast, cereals, crossants, juices etc. I would certainly recommend the breakfast for the price, cost £5 extra each.
