Great central location,very helpful and friendly staff. Breakfast room and breakfast itself excellent. Unfortunately no bar or entertainment. Parking can be a problem,street parking only and can be expensive. Lots of bars locally and entertainment in surrounding hotels.

When we complained they moved us into better rooms but at night the heating was turned off and it was freezing! Nobody should have to pay... More

We have just come back from a 2 day post Xmas break at the Riviera. I can do nothing but speak highly of it. We were greeted with the good news that our room has been upgraded. The room was clean, tidy and the bed extremely combatable. There was also the obligatory kettle but with a vast selection of teas,... More

Room was a little bit dated, but clean and really cosy. Lounge and dining area downstairs are lovely, with a bright modern feel. Breakfast was delicious and cooked really well with lots of different... More

I booked this hotel a while back for my husband and I for three nights in a standard room. I decided to phone ahead and ask if I could upgrade to a superior room, the owner answered the phone, he was very polite and happy to help us. Upon arrival at the hotel we drove around the area to find... More
