Hidden from view so turning was very difficult to spot and blind turn when pulling out onto main road. Shower not suitable for elderly guests. The picnic table was out front and not very private. Wifi only worked in one corner of the main upstairs bedroom. But it was free!
Good points were that the kitchen was very well stocked and there were plenty of chairs in the dining area.

Sorry I have checked Riverview Diary for July and it appears you were not a guest at Riverview Lodge
Our large walk in shower is perfect for elderly guests and we do not have a picnic table as our high spec furniture is on our large decked area
Would be helpful if you could confirm date as I think you may have stayed at a different lodge as I cannot find your name
Please let me know as then your review can be sent to correct owner
Thank you

“Perfect”
Reviewed 29 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We wanted a base for exploring Stratford Upon Avon and Warwick. This place just couldn't have been better. The lodge was well kitted out. We didn't stay in the one on the photos but we knew this and it certainly didn't disappoint! The lodge had everything we needed and was perfect for relaxing after a long day of sightseeing. The jet bath and rain shower were a lovely surprise. The lodge was just a home away from home. We looked at travel lodges in the area which were not much cheaper and would not have been nice in the evening, where as here if the weather is nice you can sit on the decking and enjoy a wine with the provided BBQ, however in bad weather you can snuggle up and watch TV with the fire on! My son who is 9 had a blast and is already asking when we can return. The site where the lodge is based is clearly well looked after and felt very secure with lots of kids playing which was lovely to see! The lodge looks out on to the River Avon and we particularly liked watching the rowers come down the river in the mornings! Our host was so lovely came round checked we had everything we needed but was never obtrusive yet always on the phone if needed. He even recommended the Black country living museum which was a fantastic day out. All in all the lodge was just perfect and we will definitely stay there again. If your looking for somewhere to stay in the area, then look no further. A perfect weekend and worth every penny!

“Very relaxing stay”

Stayed for a second stay at this lodge for a week over the Easter holidays, our previous stay being 4 years ago. The lodge was just the same, no changes, no signs of wear and tear during the last 4 years which was great. We hit jackpot with the weather and was able to sit out on the balcony through the day and in the early mornings (i'm an early riser) wrapped in a blanket with a nice cup of coffee. It was lovely watching the swans sailing past and the ducks come searching for bread. The wifi was a bit hit and miss but we found our hotspot area which was at the far end of the dining table. Once we had got the knack of the logging in process, and if we sat in our 'hotspot' we would have a few continuous hours of wifi. There is free wifi at the clubhouse also if its being a bit iffy in the lodge. I do think that slightly more detailed login instructions could be left in the instruction book as there are various different wifi networks to choose from. We worked out network 8 was best for us but for the first day it was trial and error.

The new (i'll call it) clubhouse, is great for a drink with outside seating on an extensive balcony. There is a play area for the kids to play in and lovely views as its next to the river. We didn't sample the menu as we felt the kids menu wasn't very extensive. The only thing our girls would choose was the lamb but we were told that was only on a Sunday.

We look forward to our next visit and we won't leave it so long next time.

Thank you for your kind response
The wi fi on site is difficult at times but instructions for a hotspot do not work as it can change daily. It is difficult with the river it seems to make it difficult with signal.
But we are pleased you decided to stay with us again and were still happy with our lodge. I hope to see you all in the near future

“Ideally situated and catered for all our needs”
Reviewed 30 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Riverview Lodge had everything we needed, it was ideally situated and every morning we had a stunning river view with swans,ducks and geese. Although it is amongst privately owned lodges it is very quiet and peaceful. Irene met us on arrival at the lodge and was extremely warm and welcoming. We werent able to make use of the balcony as it was to cold (coming from Australia!) and we out from early morning to late evening for the 4 nights we stayed.

“A great place to relax”
Reviewed 28 January 2014 for a stay in October 2013

The lodge is stylish decorated, spacious and have a wonderful view. We have stayed there for 18 nights. As it was very cold during our stay and can't enjoy much at the balcony, so we are planning for another trip there in May 2014.
