On the way from the airport, our taxi driver told us, "It's not just a hotel, it's a place for thalasso-therapy...." and he went on to describe what was on offer, and how his wife loved it. We were slightly taken aback at this information, as hadn't quite realised how different it could be: how outstandingly different, and how wonderful... More

We took my 91 year old dad back for a memorable trip as he was part of the D Day landings. Only a few minutes from the Ferry, this modern hotel was just what we wanted. I asked for a beach view and that's exactly what he got. He was able to wake up and look out over sword beach... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at Riva Bella for 4 nights. Initially we were given a small room with two twin beds where we booked a double room, and the bathroom had hairs over the walls and in the bath which were not pleasant. For the next three nights we were changed to a double room with a sea view... More

Stayed for three nights. Great location for visiting D Day beaches and with free parking. There was a delay with our room being ready which was not the best start after an early morning ferry journey. From there on in, everything went very smoothly. Rooms are clean and spacious with a contemporary feel. There's a kettle for an early morning... More

A very friendly and comfortable hotel in a excellent position not only for comfort, but also for access to the ferry to Portsmouth. We had decided to stop at the Riva Bella Hotel to allow us to visit the Normandy Beaches, this was done quite comfortably although this may have been in a quiet season. For people who want to...

We stayed only one night and didn't dine there, having arrived late, so can't comment on the food. The room was modern and clean and perfectly acceptable and the common areas seemed very smart and inviting. It's right on the beach, so must be a great place to stay in the summer. The spa was the highlight for us with... More

We stayed here as part of an offer from Brittany Ferries over the Easter period. The hotel is a 10 minute walk from the ferry port and situated right on the beach. We had a warm welcome and were given our room keys and vouchers for our bath robes in the adjacent spa. Our room was light, clean and comfortable.... More
