A very nice stay at a well positioned hotel for easy access to beaches and town centre. Breakfast was a great experience with buffet hot food and friendly staff. We had a sea view room with balcony. Parking a little difficult but staff moved the cars if you had to block someone in.

Our room was small and the furniture was either brown or cream. Fine, but £125?? You're 'aving a laugh! A shame, because bournemouth is great. We found the room depressing and I wish we'd looked elsewhere. On the plus, the breakfast choice is broad and the hotel is near the beach.

This hotel is not the kind I'd usually choose. It's dated in style and aimed more at holidaying families. I picked it for convenience because I was visiting a friend who lives on the same road. However, for it's type, this hotel is very good. The service was excellent; we were greeted warmly by a management trainee who clearly took... More

This was our fourth visit to the Riviera hotel and it was as reliable as ever. With a handy, accessible room and only a short walk away from the beach, it made our holiday very enjoyable. One of my only criticisms would be the "Hawaiian night" in the restaurant which promised a prize for the best dressed and a tropical... More

This was a very pleasant visit and I was surprised just how much you got for your money. Excellent customer service, two minutes' walk to a blue flag beach and a decent breakfast. Included in the stay you also get access to their pool facilities which include an outdoor pool, indoor pool, hot tub and sauna. This was a lovely... More

Excellant location for beaches,walks and shops. However on our arrival the balcony was stil strewn with fag ends and a filthy ash tray and on examination the rest of the balconies were the same and the flat roof that adjoined it. Also the room smelt distinctly of cigarette smoke. We complained to the management who said they would address it.... More

A well run hotel with a competent, efficient and smiling staff led from the front by a good manager, who we noticed keeping a close eye on customers' needs. Room was small but spotless and breakfast was great. Convenient location. Parking a bit tight at a very busy time, but we actually had no problems. More traditional than modern with... More

Nice hotel & apartments great value, stayed in the apartments that had lots of space with breakfast in the hotel which was basic but ok, indoor and outdoor pools were great for the kids. Best bits; first class staff, location and apartment size Poor bits; areas need updating beds too small and hard Will be coming back next year. Cheers
