Check-in for night(s)


A Victorian country hall in extensive grounds overlooking the North Tyne river and Dunterley Fell. Award-winning restaurant with Les Routier Gold Plate and AA rosette. Real ale, log fires and candlelit dinners. A warm, friendly atmosphere. Although undoubtedly Northumbria's premier sporting hotel with its sought after salmon beats, cricket and football field and indoor swimming pool it is also the nearest hotel to Kielder Water, is opposite Bellingham's renowned golf course and handy for walking on Hadrian's wall, the Pennine Way and Kielder Forest! But, still well over half of the hotel's guests are tourists out to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of Northumberland's National Park and sample the hotels widely respected food and hospitality.

A beautiful room, let down by the 1990s restaurant

pachan4, Preston, United Kingdom
w let me start by saying, having a restaurant that doesn't serve chips in baskets and puddings on slates is, to me, not a bad thing at all.  I just couldn't put my finger on it here.  The menu was small - and somewhat odd. There was one page of food and 4 or 5 of wines.  All to be served in the standard 1990s wine glasses.  I watched a couple have a sample out of a straight sided tumbler!?  Very very odd to have such a list with non of the bang.  I did opt for the oddest dish of butternut squash rissoto with goats cheese and pesto.  My hunger took over - the dish was awful.  A round of goats cheese plonked on the top, with rind still on (?)  I don't eat fish, game or offal- which took away every single dish on the menu.  I had dessert of sticky toffee which was nice, but small - and served in a cereal bowl with sloppy aerosol cream.  I ordered coffee too, with home made fudge  (no, came with a plastic wrapped biscuit) and the coffee was so so strong even my Italian friends would leave it.  All whilst sat in absoutle silence.  So, so off-putting.  The 2 other couples had to whisper every word they said.  Rather glad I was sat here on my own.  It does help you hear every ping of the microwave through. The bedroom has recently been refurbished to a high standard - however cleaning practices have already started to slide in a new room. The staff are very pleasant and keen to grin through.

A great stay

We stayed here with our son in a self catering apartment Milburn suite. Lovely accommodation. My son loved the huge open field, play area and pool. We loved the food, customer service and views from the hotel. We'll definitely be back.

Warm friendly, old world charm, hotel

We stayed on a freezing weekend at the Riverdale. First impression as you walked into reception, warm and very cosy. The room were large, clean, and had great views, spotless linen and towels, The staff were very efficient, friendly, and polite nothing was a trouble to them The food was the best, all freshly cooked, good choice of local game and plenty choices. We didn't realise it was a music weekend of jazz, but this was an added bonus, fabulous music and entertainment all weekend, we had restful days and great evenings. I highly recommend this hotel.

Some Excellent Points

Kalamaki-Rob, North West UK
My wife and I bought a bargain deal here so that we could sample the local surroundings, have a few walks and get some good photography done. The weather had other ideas unfortunately but we made the best of it! This hotel has a commanding position looking over it's own cricket pitch down to the River Tyne. The main building is a tad dated and as our rooms were overlooking the cricket pitch below the main patio area the route was convoluted inside the hotel and as it crossed open space somewhat wet and cold in the prevailing weather. Provision of umbrellas would have helped. The room we had was comfortable and reasonably well appointed but the loss of heating and hot water one morning wasn't good and took quite a long time to fix. We phoned reception and had to wait 15 minutes for someone to pick up the call but even then seemed unable to offer a time things would be fixed. The breakfast offering was excellent. Very good service and very good quality food. The evening meal that we had was fine but we found the set menu rather limited with optional extras limited to prawns in variety as starters and steaks by variety for the main. The bar/lounge had a waiting room feel to it with dining, rather than easy, chairs round the walls of the room with a big open space in the middle but this can be explained by the fact that this was one of the possible thoroughfares through the hotel. There were numerous quirks about the hotel including the offer that diners can swim free in the pool but I presume that you must adhere to Mother's rules and not swim on a full stomach! I'm sure the hotel looks and feels better in better weather!

Great Wine Weekend - again!

This hotel is in a beautiful setting and this year the weather allowed us to really appreciate it. What makes this family run hotel so special is the staff. Without exception, everyone was so friendly and genuinely seemed to want us to enjoy ourselves. Our room, at the front overlooking the road, was stylishly decorated with a very comfortable bed. Storage is a bit limited but fine for a few days. There was a bath and separate shower - our only quibble was the low water pressure and somewhat variable water temperature which seems to be a bit of an issue generally but there were a lot of us staying that weekend! Dinner on both evenings was excellent - service, for that number of people at one sitting, was excellent. Very generous portions of food and equally generous glasses of wine for both the Call my Quaff evening and the wine/food pairing! Breakfast too was very good with all the hot food freshly cooked to order - perfect poached and scrambled eggs, often a challenge for some hotels but not here. Didn't use the pool this time but it's a nice extra facility to have. Will we return - well, the date's already set for next year!
