Staff very friendly, helpful and nothing too much trouble. Lovely views of sea from Balcony of room. Very clean and everything we needed, was supplied! Lovely Breakfasts, also we had a couple of meals in the restaurant, which were excellent! Yes, the gardens could be made better use of, possibly more seating and tables set around them and a few...

Just got back from a 1 night stay, £99 for a superior sea view room with breakfast. It's not a conventional hotel, but you would know this just by looking at the pictures. Be aware you will be staying in a converted chalet room. I picked this hotel as I love 1930's architecture. If you don't like this style of... More

Like several other dance groups who have recently had their holidays cancelled by the Riviera Hotel, I was notified by our Dance Organiser from Stagecoach Promotions that the holiday for members of our Line Dance club had been cancelled without notice or explanation. They have cancelled 5 or 6 bookings going through till next year for Stagecoach alone, and so... More

Looks pretty horrible from the outside but much better inside. The rooms are fine and clean with a fridge and nice bathroom. Wifi works well in the hotel and breakfast was great. Indoor pool warm but outside pool cold. No hot tubs.

Hi there. Thank you for sharing your feedback with us. We are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. We are aware the outside of the building needs a bit of TLC, however we are a grade listed building so we need permission to do so. We are currently in the middle of freshening up the paintwork and working on... More

We stayed at the Rivera Hotel for one night. Our first impressions were positive. Reception was clean and welcoming. We paid for a sea view room, which was decorated very nicely. I must say we were concerned as the door to our room was so ill fitting and left a large gap all the way round the door so the... More

Looks like I've had a lucky escape reading some of the reviews but having my dancing holiday cancelled without a reason just 12 days before I am due to leave is unacceptable. Still awaiting an explanation, as are a number of others who were due to travel with me on the 18 July 2014!

Lovely Art deco hotel with fantastic views. The hotel has had a good make over and the rooms are clean and nice. The reception and restaurant look lovely and we made good use of the indoor and outdoor pools. The gardens could do with landscaping. Breakfast was lovely and good quality sadly the restaurant in the evening wasn't so good... More

This wonderful ‘Art Deco’ hotel is now nearly 80 years old but is still a stunning sight on entry and well worth a visit. My brother and I went there for Sunday lunch and a quick look around – it’s just a couple of miles up the coast road from the Esplanade in Weymouth. The architecture and appearance of the... More
