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.

Our group of 5 friends stayed at the Riviera to celebrate a 30th Birthday weekend, the reception and bar/restaurant staff immediately made us feel welcome, lots of friendly good natured banter, the hotel has just the right mix of traditional charm and modern conveniences, its grand central wooden staircase and deep pile carpets give it a very old world cosy...

I booked a long week end at this hotel. I was pleasantly surprised to see the clean room with a sea view. The staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. The food in the restaurant is a very high standard at a reasonable price. We were lucky with the weather all the time we were there and able to... More

Last minute getaway. Hotel is 5 minute walk from the pier, right on the sea front. 10 minute walk to town. Staff were so friendly and make you feel so welcome! And for an old hotel it was so immaculately clean! Thumbs up all round!! Take me back!

This was an excellent choice for a short weekend break. Its location is perfect for a clifftop walk, a stroll along the seafront or a visit to the town centre. On arrival we parked easily and were made to feel very welcome. The room was spacious and clean with a spectacular view out to sea. We stayed for dinner. The... More
