I stayed in this hotel with my girlfriend approximately 4 months ago. paid roughly £70 for the one evening's stay, in a room with a double bed and sea view. Upon arrival, we were given the keys to a room which had no sea view, it was just the rear of the hotel with a view of more buildings. We... More

We stayed for two nights at this hotel. It has wonderful views over the bay. The rooms are chalet style but recently modernised which we found tasteful. We stayed as part of a family group. So can comment about various rooms. We found the rooms lacked plug points and hooks for towels etc, but generally clean and was good to... More

Regrettably had to cancel my long term booking ( 7 months ) for a weekend Fleet Air Arm reunion because hotel had double booked the facilities required, and agreed, by hotel Events Co-ordinator. I understand the General Manager of the hotel failed to enter into dialogue with the reunion representatives to retrieve the situation. Extremely disappointing, cowardly and unprofessional behaviour... More

We stayed one night at this hotel - what used to be the old Pontins - and were very impressed with the room, the service, the breakfast and the views. Staff were friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was an all you can eat buffet and catered for all tastes!! The room was modern, clean and made good use of the space.... More

Just arrived back from a 3 night stay with my 4 year old son and partner. We were very worried arriving because we has spent the prev evening reading the bad reviews of the hotel on this web site. I can honestly say it was a lovely hotel. If you are expecting boutique like we were then you will feel... More

We stayed at the Riviera 2 years ago and decided to return for a 3 night break as we like the area of Weymouth/Poole etc so much. The room was very modern in décor and furnishing but the bed was very, very creaky ,and had a tendency to make you feel as though you were rolling to the middle !... More

Booked the hotel last minute for a day trip to Weymouth. We stayed at this hotel for one night and we paid 108£ for a standard double bed room, including breakfast. At the reception they advised about breakfast hours but nothing else, not even mentioned the facilities available, such as leisure centre. Our room was at the back of the... More

Another weekend and another chance to escape to the coast in the sunshine - and when we pulled up at the Riviera in Weymouth I was transported back in time to well before my existence. The hotel externally is unchanged from its original design spanning out in an arc shape overlooking the sea and the main town of Weymouth -... More

I originally booked this as the weather was great, and the outdoor pool was the main attraction. Unfortunately when we arrived, the outdoor pool was closed - check in receptionists didn't even mention it which I thought was poor. We only later found out when we heard another customer loudly complaining (to no avail) about it. The indoor facilities were... More

Don't know where to start. The photos look really great on their website how ever on arrival the hotel looks really dated and in desperate need of modernising . The room we stayed in was just a basic double but on arrival the toilet hadn't been flushed from whom ever stayed before ( not very welcoming ) The kettle was... More
