We enjoyed our short stay very much. The hotel,staff,food and facilities where all above and beyond what we expected for the very reasonable price we paid. We would definitely return,and intend to do so. Thanks for a very pleasant experience.

Stayed here New Years Eve 2015.We were late booking and booked with a booking site rather than direct. We were delighted to find a hotel with sea views that wasn't full of stags and hens or very pricy. Our room was great - panoramic views and quite spacious. The bedding was good and the room was in nice decorative order... More

Now, it's safe to say that this is not a modern hotel and it is not run in a modern way either. It is like stepping back some 30 years to how seaside hotels use to be furnished and run. However, it is a very clean, friendly and value hotel. Double room was small, but excellent sea view. En-suite was... More

My Daughter and I stayed here one night before boarding a ferry next morning. Typical seaside hotel with music etc in the evenings. Parking very tight. Room clean but quiet noisy. Bed small and uncomfortable. Would not choose to stay here again sorry.

Decided on one night break away 3 days before Christmas and decided on this hotel after seeing the reviews on TripAdvisor. It is in a fantastic position on the cliff top directly overlooking the sea and our room had a sea view. Unfortunately the weather was atrocious not long after we arrived, with gale force winds and horizontal rain so... More

Stayed here 1 night in December as we were visiting family in the area. The staff were all very friendly and the room and hotel was clean. We also had our 3month son with us so they kindly upgraded our room on arrival. The breakfast was lovely. I would highly recommend as its great value for money. Location wise it's... More

This hotel is very clean and very well presented. The room was top notch. Clean tidy with a very comfortable bed. Lovely sea view. Family run and they make you feel welcome. Nice breakfast. Book this hotel. You won't be disappointed.

Arrived back from the Holly & Mistletoe weekend break at the Riviera Hotel and what a superb stay it was.The room we were allocated was lovely with a bay window that overlooked the sea. The small bar reminded me of your local club/bar with a friendly barman plus the drink prices were reasonable. the restaurant was something else the excellent... More
