I stayed here with my wife two weeks ago, and we had a good stay. The bedroom was a little smaller than I imagined it would have been, but was good and clean - so nothing to grumble about. we only had breakfast in the restaurant, which was good - I asked for my usual poached eggs and they were...

Nothing was too much trouble and the hotel' s location is very near the sea-front for lovely photo-shoots. the afternoon and evening function rooms looked amazing and all guests had a super time. our family and friends all had lovely clean rooms...

Basically your average hotel, reasonable sized rooms, location and possibly price (Breakfast extra though). Parking can be a problem as very little onsite parking available. Bathroom tended to get steamed up quickly and the faux antique tap and shower fittings actually came across as tacky , especially as the plastic bath flexed when you stood in it to use the... More

This hotel mostly gets it right but has errors that are potentially risky for visitors hence it's average rating. First the good. I had planned this break carefully as had 3 elderly relatives with me. Two 88 year olds and one 84 year old all with some mobility difficulties. The phone calls and emails helped sort the best rooms for... More

This is a great place for a little get away however beware of who checks you in at reception. On arrival we asked about parking facilities as the bays in front of the hotel were full, we were then told "park any where but don't block any other cars". I was surprised as the hotel was advertised as having "free... More

The whole family really loved this hotel in a great location a very short walk from amazing wide sandy beaches. The children were big fans of the indoor pool and my husband appreciated the new gym area. Staff were very friendly, rooms spotless and the food excellent for the price.

My husband and I stayed for two nights at the Riviera Hotel in Alum Chine, Bournemouth last weekend. We have stayed many times before with and without our children and have always been very impressed with everything that the Riviera has to offer. It is always spotlessly clean and the food has improved year after year. For the prices charged... More
