3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

With a group of 16 you can be a little overwhelming but the staff at the Riverside were very accommodating and very easy to get a long with. The staff were super friendly and felt like home when you were there. They are outside of Fredericton but no need to go out for dinner their restaurant had good food reasonably priced. The kids had a great time in the pool and there were enough open spaces the adults could relax outside of their room or have a game of crib. Their pizza was great.

Spent a week at the hotel for work. Very friendly staff, good restaurant and very clean room. The hotel could benefit from a bit of TLC (fading paint, cracked plaster, old wallpaper) but it was very clean which is what really matters. It’s a 2.5 star hotel but I am rating it at 4 start because it outperformed my expectations for the price range.

Stayed one Saturday night on our way home from Nova Scotia. Reception gave us a room away from the wedding group so we had a quiet night. Room was nice and bed was comfortable. There were no pool towels and the pool area is in need of renovation. The grounds by the river are nice. We would stay here again.

It’s a shame that the government has to put new highways in and ruin businesses like this. It is a beautiful little hotel on an amazing piece of property, nice and secluded but easily accessible. It’s showing signs of wear probably due to the fact they lost a lot of buisness when the new highway went in and bypassed it. The room rate for what you get is probably the best deal in the province. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who wants a nice quiet stay just a few minutes from the city. Will be staying again in the future for sure

This place was not the 800.00 a week we paid! Anytime we asked for amenities like towels or toilet paper we were met with hesitation! No blinds on the door and housekeeping never came for days! Don’t go

This place looks much nicer than on the website pictures. Hotel inside and out needs updating. Very rundown. Hallways and main entrance areas were very dirty. Carpets in terrible shape. Pool area also needing upgrades. Hot tub barely bubbled. Our room was clean but poor workmanship on any repairs done in the past. Service was ok. Restaurant has the best wings. Could be a beautiful property if updated.

I personally would not recommend for a wedding. I had too many issues with the Resort 3 months leading up to the wedding day for my daughter. There was no consistency in pricing with the venue or booking the rooms for the out of town guest. This had to be monitored all the time. The guest were being quoted 3 different prices when booking. I was supposed to receive invoice in August and after numerous emails I finally received it 3 weeks before wedding. The night before and day of we had to constantly go looking for staff when we needed something as there was hardly ever anyone around including at front desk. The morning after some of the guest ended up just leaving their room cards on front desk cause no one was around to check them out. When I went to check out of my room the girl working was walking around talking on her cell phone about dogs and never once put her cell phone down during checking me out. Didn't speak to me just kept talking on her cell phone. The only thing I was 100% satisfied with was the food. The Chef did an amazing job and I was more than happy to let him know. I'm just really happy it was me dealing with the Resort and not my daughter. I would not wish the stress that I had to deal with on any bride.

Stopped by for supper, I ordered vegetable stir fry, wife fish and chips with rice instead of chips. After quite a wait, and we were the only ones in the restaurant, food arrived. A good deal of the stir fry sauce had been splashed around the rim of the plate - poor presentation. The taste was OK, but the meal was small - lunch size, had to have a sandwich when I went home. The batter on the fish was extremely thick and hard, editable. Once the fish was peeled it was quite good though. Small portion of rice, again like a lunch menu. Wait time - other people had arrived and we noticed that they were asking where their food was. We fouind out later that one table had waited over an hour.

Comfortable well equipped room and friendly service, but the best part were the walking trails along the river. Great activity. We skipped the buffet breakfast. Looked good and reasonably priced, but more than we needed. Very good stop while in transit.

Very pleasantly surprised (for the reasonable price) of the quality/comfort of the room (good bed, ample room, coffee maker, ironing board/iron, hair drier, decent-size soap rather than then usual skinny worthless offer, free local calls/WiFi connection, individual temp controls), handicapped accessible guest and meeting rooms, Coin-op washers/driers for guests, restaurant, take-out pizza service (even with gluten-free and vegetarian options!), pool, fitness center, tennis courts (even with FREE use of racquets/balls!!) shuffleboard, basketball hoop, horseshoe pit, ice machine. Would be a great place for families with the ample grounds for play space and many recreational activities. The super tranquil setting by the river (you can walk out on a dock) and trails for walks are very appealing.
