Stayed here for 5 nights on a business trip and we had a great time. Comfortable beds and clean rooms. The choice of food is excellent and well presented. Lewis who helps run the bar will always try and accommodate your every need. Will definitely stay again.

My wife and I had a week at the Riviera in March of this year, we motorhome all summer and I like to have a couple of weeks in the off season when my wife can be waited on and just feel a little pampered. I found the Riviera on the Internet after deciding that over a £1000 pounds out... More

Just spent a long weekend here and we couldn't have picked a better place to stay. Great family run hotel with friendly staff, clean and comfortable rooms and fantastic views looking out over the channel. Decor a little dated but no complaints about anything at all. Great choices for breakfast with great food. Thanks for your hospitality.

It can be a little noisy in the morning but nothing too much, just noise of people getting up and moving around the hotel etc. I am sure this depends what room you are in... More

Our three days at Hotel Riviera were a joy and delight. Excellent room with sea view, tasty meals in sunny and friendly dining room, happy smiling faces from everyone, great entertainment in the evening - although we did give the disco a miss, and at this time of the year easy parking everywhere. Will certainly return.
