We stayed at the Riviera overnight a couple of years ago on our way to Cornwall, it was a hot day and after a stressfull drive (road accident causing massive delays around Poole) the pool was a lovely relaxation, and the Hotel seemed nice. Decided to return for a short break this year, sadly the weather was terrible so no... More

Whilst enjoying a few days away after our wedding, my husband and I jumped ship from a 5* country hotel as we felt disappointed. Having decided to spontaneously jump in the car and drive South on the M5, hubby decided to come off on the junction for Weymouth and we ended up at the Riviera Hotel. Tired (weathered) and dated...

As we approached the hotel from a few hundred metres away I could see the hotel sitting majestically on the beach. All the excitement soon disappeared when we alighted outside the hotel and was ushered into a reception that was definitely in need of a revamp. We collected our keys and turned left to go towards a long corridor that... More

My husband and I stayed here with our baby at the beginning of the year and chose to come back again as we felt compared to the premier inn it was good value for money, with breakfast and all of the facilities it has to offer. We checked into the hotel and reiterated we needed a room big enough for... More

Location, lovely. Front of hotel badly in need of revamp. Room, once reached, via shabby outside stone steps, slippery when wet and resembling a fire escape, (no access to rooms inside building), had been modernised and was clean and comfortable. Breakfast certainly not up to hotel standard and although had requested vegetarian food, the only difference was to omit the... More

This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. We arrived at 3pm to be told our room wasn't ready. If the drive up to the dilapidated, shabby looking hotel( if you can call it that) wasn't a worrying start already! I asked if it could be ready asap as we were due to go to a wedding reception...

I wanted to take a few days away with my family and decided on the Riviera, bad choice ! The hotel is in a fair state of disrepair generally and the staff seemed very disorganised, breakfast was chaos, with customer's needing to clear themselves a table to sit at. The first room's we were offered were at the rear of... More
