We were taking part in the Doreset Coast Trail run competition and need a place to stay for one night. We booked the hotel and also requested a table at the restaurant for 15 people so after the race we can have a dinner before some of us heads back to Bristol. the check in was easy, but we found...

Miserable staff in gym an pool freezing cold. Showers and toilets dirty and showers not working properly. Floor also needs a good clean. Shame as very nice location. Nice sauna and steam room is a way if warming up after a very cold swim in the very nice indoor pool. Feel like swimming in an outdoor pool in December. Short... More

This hotel is a little out of the way but has a good location non the less. Apparently it is a listed building, which probably explains the metal framed single glazing and odd layout. I can imagine this being cutting edge when it was built but it's a little tired now. Breakfast was good and other meals were ok. Staff... More

We spent a lovely couple of nights in the hotel with a stunning view of the bay from our Chalet. The room was clean and comfortable with all the amenities required. We found the staff both pleasant and extremely helpful, and our evening meals could not be faulted. For a three star hotel they offer excellent service and value for... More

Did not stay at the hotel so cannot comment on the rooms and facilities. However, we went to the restaurant for a Sunday lunch for a special family occasion. The restaurant usually offers a carvery but we weren't given this option on this occasion, neither were we even offered a menu. We were just given a verbal choice of 2... More

We stayed at the Riviera last weekend. The young staff were very helpful and efficient. Our room was in a separate block to the rear of the main building. The room was smallish but it was clean and tidy and cosily warm. The hotel occupies a stunning location and sure some of the external features need making good - always... More

After reading some earlier comments we were a bit worried about going, So glad we did, the staff on Friday were really friendly and helpful, we had a good meal in the restaurant. The room was more than adequate for the price you pay. Breakfast was fine, okay tinned tomatos but I happen to like that. We are vegetarians and... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night earlier this week en route to Cornwall. We came across it quite by chance. It's an unusual looking place set on the hillside overlooking Bowleaze Cove. We had a double room overlooking the bay - the room was of an average size and clean with an en suite shower room. The... More

Booked one night as most places in Weymouth were booked full. Building is very art deco, and cartainly stands out. Room was nice but on closer inspection very dirty, carpet coming up near bathroom door was a trip hazard. Overall glad to leave dont think we will be back, could be so much more but massive investment is needed.
