I stayed at the Riviera this weekend, (19th April – 21st April). I just wanted to complement you and the management team. The hotel was perfect, very stylish, clean and the service, outstanding. We arrived early, 10am, as we had drove up from Essex early to avoid the traffic, I knew we wouldn’t get in the room that early, the... More

As we drove up, the outside of the hotel looked in such bad disrepair that my partner almost refused to get out the car, which was quite a disappointment as we were only staying for 1 night, plus it looked pretty impressive from afar. In no way did myself or my partner expect 5* luxury, but for almost £30 per... More

By anyones standered, The Riviera is a bit of a puzzle, so possibly do not stay here if what you are expecting is an all round 5* hotel. But if the idea of staying in a piece of marvellous history and local significance appeals...then book a night immediately! We only had an overnight stay, but the room was more than... More

Just returned home from a 2 night stay. We were dissatisfied with Initial room allocated but reception very helpful in arranging alternative accommodation which was clean and fairly well appointed. Probably the best location in the hotel, first floor corner room directly overlooking the beach. Breakfast was of good quality, surprised however that only brown bread was available for toast....

Two days ago my husband sent in a review criticising the standard of food in the Restaurant entitled Disappointed And Embarrassed. Whilst this was completely justified at the time I would like to express our extreme satisfaction that we have now received from the Hotel. The Manageress had been off sick for a month and was devastated to hear and... More

Just got home after a two night stay. Had a lovely time. Rooms clean and nicely decorated. On the first night there was no cover on the duvet. Staff very apologetic. Upgraded to sea view room and 10% discount. Food ok. My son is vegetarian. No veggie sausages the first morning but they had them for him the second morning.... More

Similar to other reviews, I have to say this appears to be 'Work in Progress'. The rooms are dreadfully small but amazingly well-equipped (eg we had a mini fridge, plenty of storage space, hairdryer and even wine glasses) The rooms have obviously been decorated but the outer bedding we had was yellow and clearly been used before! The bathroom lighting... More

Stayed for 1 night, never get a second chance to make a first impression, the outside of the hotel is in terrible condition, flaked paintwork, unkept gardens. The reception area, dining room have been refurbished, however after checking in we were given directions to our room, which is in a block at the rear of the hotel, I honestly thought... More

My daughter and partner are currently staying there for a couple of nights. We went to meet them last night and have dinner together in the restaurant. The restaurant that in the Riviera's description says :- "Fine dining has arrived at the Riviera hotel’s Bowleaze restaurant open to all visitors and non-residents. Boasting the culinary talents of Chef Mohammed Rikas... More

Stayed for two nights. We had asked for a sea view but as we were on the ground floor the net curtains blocked what would have been a nice view. The rooms are quite small made worse by a huge double bed which is quite unnecessary and although recently decorated there was a long crack down the wall. The room... More
