We spent seven nights at Douglas Riverside with family (4 adults, 2 teenagers) and had a magnificent time. On arrival we found the property impeccably clean, tidy and fitted with all the necessities for a very comfortable, self catering holiday. Proprietor Jane clearly goes to considerable effort to add a range of thoughtful and caring welcome touches such as fresh flowers, a loaf of home baked bread, bowl of fresh fruit, milk and chocolates in the fridge and mini Tim Tams in each room. We were able to change linen and towels as often as needed during our stay. The lounge area has delightful, soothing views up and down the Moyne River which is literally just outside the windows. The surrounding gardens and lawn are maintained to a very high standard. This is an ideal property to rent with family or a group of friends. Bedroom 3 has a separate room with single bed and shared en-suite which is ideal for adults with a child or teenagers of different gender. An easy walk along the waterfront and into town for shopping, cafes and restaurants. A thoroughly enjoyable week with special thanks to Jane and Rod.…
A lovely welcome, and a room (number2) right on the river. Not a large room, as someone else mentioned, but perfectly fine. The breakfast was superb. It was available for us in the breakfast room, warm croissants and plenty of healthy options if you wanted it. Tea and coffee available all day, along with cookies. Even a glass of Port if you wanted. We only stayed one night, but you could stay here a few nights and not get fed up!
We spent two nights in Room 1 with great views of the river. The room was not large but had all the amenities you require and was very clean. A separate breakfast/sitting room connected to the bedrooms and had great views of the river and provided a tranquil place to sit and relax with a cup of tea or something stronger. A breakfast basket was left in the fridge for each room and was excellent. A good place to stay and close to the centre.
Fabulous 2 night stay. The hosts were so welcoming we felt instantly comfortable. Our room was lovely, facing the river and the bed very comfortable, lovely fresh fruit too. There was a beautiful communal sitting area overlooking the river. Really relaxing and calm watching the bird life and water go by. The property is in a terrific location. A short stroll to the restaurants, shops and the wharf area. Highly recommend. Thank you Jane and Rod.
The location of this inn is amazing, overlooking the river with beautifully maintained lawns. Our room (no 3) was one of 3 in a block right at the river front and was immaculate. The 3 rooms share a open plan kitchen/diner/sitting room. I believe there are other rooms further away from the river. The bedroom was very comfortable and the facilities were great. The welcome we had from Jane was really friendly and she gave us some very helpful restaurant advice. The breakfast included was brilliant - loads of it and Jane had even made croissants that were warming in the communal oven. A real treat. Great stay, and I would come again
