More Room Types

The Riverside House Hotel is a substantial Georgian townhouse with an English country-style garden and manicured lawns that lead down to the banks of the River Lark. It's in the market town of Mildenhall, making it a good base from which to explore Suffolk and Cambridgeshire. The colleges and museums of picturesque Cambridge are around 23 miles away, while the cathedral city of Ely is just 14 miles from the hotel.

The historic market town of Bury St Edmunds, which is home to the ancient abbey ruins, is around 14 miles away. The ruins are situated in the popular Abbey Gardens, a 6-hectare park with tennis courts, a rose garden, an aviary and a children's play area. Nature lovers can enjoy walking, cycling and horse riding in nearby Thetford Forest. It's about eight miles from the hotel and is Britain's largest lowland pine forest.

After a busy day exploring local cultural and natural attractions, guests can enjoy a meal in the hotel's Terrace Restaurant. It's a light and airy contemporary space that overlooks the pretty gardens and has options for al fresco dining. The menu changes with the season as there's an emphasis on using fresh locally grown ingredients where possible. There's a comfortable bar and lounge with traditional décor, as well as a riverside seating area, which is a good spot for a long cool drink on a sunny day. The bar serves a separate menu of light bites, snacks and sandwiches. Afternoon tea, including a selection of finger sandwiches, cakes, and scones with clotted cream and jam, can be taken in the lounge or on the terrace.

There are 15 contemporary rooms in the Georgian house; 11 are doubles, while three are more spacious and are popular with families. There's also a bridal suite. All have air conditioning and free Wi-Fi.
