One up from the old style Travelodge but twice the price. Don't know where they had spent 4 million but the changing rooms and swimming pool needed up grading.we did have a fabulous view over weymouth bay.

Went for two days break. Room was shabby and in need of good clean and redecoration. Staff nice but over worked. One lady on 17 hour shift. Best part was breakfast. Buffet style and good selection. Considering we paid £99 per room Inc breakfast per night we thought it should have been a lot cleaner and brighter. The outstanding views... More

This was my second visit here and my boyfriends first. We paid the extra for the sea view - I asked in my booking email for the best sea view room and we were not disappointed! View was beyond stunning!! There was a delay in checking in because of an issue with the party in front of us however an... More

Myself and my wife had to take a short trip to Weymouth on the 26th june 2015 so we searched the internet for a place to stay and we came across the Riviera Hotel. We were unsure whether to book there due to the amount of negative reviews this hotel has received but everyone deserves a chance so we booked... More

This hotel needs some TLC, the view from our room and balcony was excellent, the room itself was quite small but adequate (you only need it to sleep in). All staff were very friendly and let us store our bikes securely in their store room, breakfast was good and so were the two evening meals we had, although service was... More

We stayed here for one night while working in the area. We feel the hotel website doesn't really paint a true picture of this place, especially the pictures of the restaurant. It doesn't live up to expectations. Good points first. The position of the hotel is great, with excellent views from the gardens and the walkways to the sea, we... More

The design may have been ground breaking in 1937. Now, it needs knocking down. Imagine the concrete and paintwork of an old open air seaside swimming bath, and you have the picture. Open air steps to rooms when you have a suitcase are dangerous. The rooms, though badly ventilated, are just about acceptable save for the inadequate dribble of water... More

We booked the Riviera in Jan 2014 for our wedding June 2015. During that time the staff have constantly changed, I saw bad reviews and I was very concerned. Luckily the new manager Pete put my worries to rest and he was there all day and night to make sure we was happy. Everything went fantastic, my venue decorator spoke... More
