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.

God value hotel in a great location

Ian S, Northallerton, United Kingdom
Stayed her in March when it was pretty cold but the hotel was lovely and cosy and the staff very accommodating. Had the pool to myself and enjoyed some excellent meals and drinks at very reasonable cost. Car park a bit of a squash and had an issue with overcharging on the bill but that was quickly sorted.


Reece G,
Food and rooms where good. Pool And spar area need a serious update sauna was cold and dirty pool was cold lots of mild on the walls. No safe locker area to keep your valuables in the changing rooms. Staff where great tho as where the rooms

Riverdale Country Hotel

Snookerado, Leeds, United Kingdom
Arrived at the Riverdale sunday the 11th Feb. The manager showed us to our room, a very nice room, South facing the river and the cricket pitch (flooded), but very nice. We had a lovely breakfast, fruit juice, cereal, toast, full English, fruit salad and yoghurt and coffee. Bit quiet on a night considering it's February but the Hotel has weekend guests with coach tours etc. Nice afternoon tea rooms at the "Carriages", which is exactly what is is, railway carriages, and well worth a visit. All in all, an out of the way sleepy village, ideal for a break away.

Pleasant independent hotel. Excellent staff.

Stayed here on business. Had a decent sized room overlooking the cricket pitch which was in a small row of rooms outside the main hotel. The bed was large and comfortable. The room was very clean (including the bathroom) and the heating worked well (-5°C outside). The room was quiet as I wanted. I found all the staff to be polite, friendly and helpful. The food was good and plentiful. The only down side was that the wi-fi was somewhat flaky and I struggled to connect. Given the price that I paid, this hotel was excellent value for money and I will definitely stay again when I am next in the area.

Run down, discourteous and generally pretty awful

The-Rupert-Seller, Basingstoke, United Kingdom
Some have said this place has 'an old country feel' to it. While it may be true that early last century hotels in the country were already tired, overpriced, noisy, self-satisfied and saddled with lacklustre management, it is certainly not true that early this century the same should apply. But apply it does to Riverdale Hall. On arrival the front desk was deserted and remained so for 9 minutes despite my 'Hello, is anybody there' calls. A crumple-shirted man finally appeared and dealt with our booking-in and led us to the bottom of the stairs and pointed up them to where the room was. The room (Room 3) itself was fine: in the centre of the original building looking out over the cricket field and the North Tyne. It was large with all the usual stuff (tea, coffee, two small bottles of water, TV, king bed, a couple of armchairs and, oddly, a CD player) and was warm and, really, quite cozy in a 1950’s sort of way. It had a lovely bathroom with shower and large double ended ‘slipper’ type bath and with the usual complement of little bottles of soap etc. Interestingly, a little roll of cardboard tied with a pretty coloured ribbon and with a label saying ‘shower cap’ proved to be empty (and remained so for the 3 days we were there). Dinner was OK (we were on our own most of the time), the portions were generous and the wine, though pricey, was good. The service was with a smile. The next morning we found the shower was not working – the temperature control lever just rotated smoothly but did nothing to control the temperature of the water – which was cold. (There was also a leak in the pipework which caused a little spray of (cold) water to lubricate the ceiling.) So we made use of the bath (with plenty of hot water) and made appropriate use of the little bottles of washing stuff. The breakfast was fine. Again, the service was with a smile. We reported the shower problem to the person behind the desk and left for the day with her promise to fix it ringing in our ears. On returning to our room in the early evening we were astonished to discover that the water bottles and the little soap bottles had not been replenished. Neither had the room been vacuumed. Oddly the tea and coffee sachets had been replaced. Why not the other normally complimentary stuff? And just how often is the room vacuumed? We’ll never know (because we’ll never return). But the non-replacement questions were soon overshadowed by raucous talk and music coming from the bar – which was directly below Room 3. OK, we said to ourselves, it was a Friday night and relaxing after a week’s work was on the cards. But, at 2.30 am it was still going on unabated. Finally, an angry call to reception solicited an apology and, by a strange coincidence, the promise that the bar was just closing and the party was just finishing. 30 minutes later the noise finally died down and peace descended. We left the next morning (tired but relieved to be going) and were not charged for the room for the previous disturbed night. This was a Good Thing by the hotel since it meant we didn’t have to refuse to pay for the night - as was our intention. But we did point out that the shower still didn’t work. ‘Oh, but it does!’ we were told. ‘I spent 10 minutes in the room yesterday testing it and it was fine.’ said the Receptionist. This was odd since that very morning we tried and failed to get warm/hot water out of it. She then went on to comment that it was just as well it was working fine because ‘it’s hard to get a plumber out here in the middle of nowhere’. Oh, come along! Bellingham’s only 16 miles from Hexham – it’s hardly Outer Mongolia. Anyway, if the shower had been ‘fixed’ the day before, why hadn’t we been told or, at least, told how to make it work properly? So, all in all, if you’re looking for a relaxed and cossetted Northumberland stay: look elsewhere.
